When Should You Upgrade Your Electrical Panel?

It’s very common that homes built in the 1960s or earlier will be rated for 100 amps. In this day in age, we have more modern appliances in our homes and new technology. This can require a fuse box replacement, breaker maintenance, or an upgraded panel to 200 or even 400 amps to give you the appropriate power to accommodate your property’s electrical needs. 

Even if you have a more recently built home, sometimes the electrical panel installed may not be updated enough to accommodate appliances that are becoming more and more common, like hot tubs, home electrical vehicle (EV) chargers, and much more. If you’re not sure about the state of your electrical panel, contact our team today to book an inspection!


What People are Saying


Asked Questions

Absolutely. Not only will getting a panel upgrade for your home be more convenient and reduce light flickering, trips, and blown fuses, but it’s also a safety hazard to avoid electrical panel upgrades or replacements. When the electricity needed for your home is too much for an old or outdated electrical panel to handle, it can overheat, break down, or even catch fire. Older houses in Ottawa were built using 100 amp circuit breakers which cannot supply enough electricity to renovate modern homes. Contact Ottawa Electric if you’re ever unsure of the status of your current electrical panel. Do you need to upgrade your breaker box? Our breaker box upgrade Ottawa team will be happy to investigate and do any necessary electrical panel installations for your properties.

Most modern homes are equipped with a 200 amps electrical panel. Although it supplies standard electricity for the average home, sometimes, this still cannot support larger electrical heating systems or appliances for larger homes. In Ottawa and surrounding areas, Hydro One and Hydro Ottawa provide a consumption report, which is an overview of your hourly electrical usage. Once you get that online consumption report from your provider, we can help you determine your current and future allowable usage.

If you have installed larger appliances in your home, you might need a 300 amps electrical panel upgrade or even 400 amps panel upgrade. Our electrical panel retrofit Ottawa team will evaluate your home and recommend a solution that works best for you. 

There are a few telltale signs your electrical panel is in need of an upgrade. Some of which include:

  • You have a home built in the 1960s or earlier.
  • You have recently added a new feature or appliance to your home, such as a hot tub, EV Charger, or pool.
  • You notice dim or flickering lights in your home.
  • Your panel or breakers frequently trip.
  • You often have a blown fuse.
  • Your panel or breaker, or fuse box is hot to the touch, has a burning smell, or makes a crackling noise. 

If your electrical panel is badly damaged, you might need an electrical panel replacement. Are you looking for panel upgrades and replacements in Ottawa? Hire an electrical contractor at a renowned Ottawa electrical company.

Some of the signs of poor electrical wiring are melting, slightly melted or discoloured wire in the panel, melted or discoloured plugs and outlets, and flickering lights. If you’ve noticed some or all of these signs, it may be time for an electrical inspection, rewiring or an electrical upgrade.
