Electrical Service Panel and Breaker Box Installation in kansas city

One of the most common upgrades we perform on Kansas City homes is an electrical panel upgrade. That’s because, with today’s electronics, old 60 amp service just isn’t sufficient to run all of our TVs, appliances, video games, alarm systems, etc. that we use on a daily basis. So how do you know if you need a panel upgrade? Here is a list of questions that should help you determine if your breaker box is in need of help:

  • Is your panel more than 20 years old?
  • Do you have old 60 amp service?
  • Do your breakers pop on a regular basis?
  • Does your breaker panel look like a plate of spaghetti?
  • Your breaker panel shows signs of burning or melting
  • Are you adding a room addition and need more power?
  • Do you unplug one appliance so you can plug in another?
  • Your existing panel is damaged (usually by water, rodents, or perhaps oversized circuits that have caused components to overheat)
  • Your panel is located in a closet
  • You have a bad brand known to be a safety hazard. Federal Pacific, Zinsco, Bulldog or Pushamatic (replace if full or near full because of breaker cost)

old unsafe electrical panel replace kansas cityIf the answer is yes to any of those questions, it may be time for a Service Panel Upgrade. With the proliferation of more electronic devices in a home, older electrical panels simply do not have the power to supply today’s needs. Older breaker panels can become overloaded and overworked, which turns into a safety and fire hazard for your home. So before your electrical panel gives out on its terms, replace it on your terms.

Old Breaker Boxes & Service Panels Are Safety Hazards

Another problem we see with breaker boxes is outdated panels. These pose several hazards. First, if overloaded, old panels can spark and cause a fire. Most older panels are 60 amps. The minimum size, or number of amps, your panel needs to be is usually 100 amps. Any smaller, and you will have a hard time getting insured because it is a safety hazard. Your home’s electrical panel needs to be large enough to handle the everyday load we put on it.

Older Kansas City Homes Need
Electrical Upgrades

When was your home built? If it was before 1980, your electrical system is out of date. Homes that are 20 years old or older weren’t wired to handle modern day electrical demands. Today, homes are built with a service rated for 100 amps. Older homes usually use a 60-amp electrical service. At Fusion Electric, upgrading the electrical systems in older homes is a common service call we receive. If you’re constantly blowing circuits, need more outlets for computers, game systems, kitchen appliances, home theaters, etc., give us a call. We’ll give your home a safety inspection and let you know if an upgrade is advisable. We cover the entire Kansas City area, from Leawood to Overland Park to Lee’s Summit.

Safety Inspection

How safe is your home? The NEC (National Electrical Code) changes over the years. One of the most common features missing in older homes is Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters commonly called GFCIs. They are required by code in many places in your home. A GFCI is an inexpensive device that can save you from a fatal electrical shock. If a piece of electrical equipment is damaged, it can create an unintentional electrical path between itself and the ground. If a person touches it, they can be burned, shocked, or even killed. All receptacles in bathrooms, kitchens, garages, outdoors and in unfinished basements should have GFCI protection. Look for a red button in the middle of the outlet. It will pop out if there is a surge in electricity rendering the receptacle dead until you press the button to reset it.
