Living in Dallas, Richardson or Plano has many benefits. There’s the booming economy and vibrant entertainment scene of living close to Texas’s largest city. But due to the growing population, many of us are living in homes with infrastructure that hasn’t been updated in years. And with homes and appliances that depend on electricity more than ever before, if you have an outdated electrical panel, you could be facing electrical problems in the near future.
Fortunately, panel upgrades are an inexpensive way to ensure your family’s convenience and safety for years to come. We at Kana Electrical LLC have prepared this guide to help you decide whether your home could use a new electrical panel or electrical panel wiring.
When was your home built? If your home was built in the last fifteen years, you can likely skip this section. But many homes built before 1990 were built with only 100-amp panels or even lower! This electric capacity is too low for the many modern electronics and appliances that life in Dallas, Richardson or Plano requires.
If you’ve ever experienced a power failure or have had a fuse blow when turning on certain appliances, it is likely your home’s power demands place too much strain on its electrical panel. Kana Electrical LLC recommends refitting your electrical panel wiring to at least a 200-amp panel, which can provide your home the power it needs for many generations.
Having the lights dim when you turn on the air conditioner isn’t just a minor annoyance, it can be the sign of something much more serious. When your home’s breaker is unable to keep up, you can run the risk of a much more serious power outage, or even dangerous electrical fires.
Your home’s electricity is something you might take for granted until it’s gone. Investing up-front in new electrical panel wiring can save a lot of money in the long term.
At Kana Electrical LLC, we’re proud to offer some of the best prices for panel inspections, repair, and replacement, backed by 14 years of experience and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
The average cost of upgrading to a 200-amp panel in Texas is $1,300 to $3,000. This might seem steep, but you can expect it to solve your fuse-related electrical problems for years to come. And if that upgrade includes a switch to a breaker box, common electrical problems will be safer for you to handle.
