How Often Should an Electrical Service Panel Be Inspected?
The frequency of inspecting or repairing an electrical service panel depends on factors like panel age, home wiring condition, and local regulations. Generally, it's recommended to have a professional inspection every 3 to 5 years. Inspections help identify hazards like loose connections, corrosion, overheating, or outdated components. Older homes, frequent power surges, recent appliance additions, or high electrical loads may require more frequent inspections. Contact our licensed electricians for personalized advice on inspection and repair frequency.

There are some signs to watch out for if you are concerned you may need to replace your service panel.
You should consider replacing your service panel if:
- You are building out new rooms or renovating: If you are adding a new building on your property or adding more rooms onto your house, the increased electrical demand will likely need to be met with a higher capacity electrical panel.
- You have an older home with a fuse box: Fuse boxes are an outdated system that can be found on older homes. They are more inconvenient since fuses have to be replaced whenever they blow. Users should also be careful when replacing fuses since an incorrect fuse can cause an electrical fire.
- You have lights flickering: Dimming or flickering lights are a very common sign that your electrical system is overloaded.
- You are installing new appliances: New appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, stoves, water heaters, heat pumps, lighting, home theaters, and hot tubs all demand a high level of electricity. A panel upgrade may be necessary for all your systems to run normally.
- Your electrical panel appears overloaded: If your service panel is warm, making hissing sounds, or releasing a burning smell, these are all indicators of a severely overworked electrical system. Not only are your home appliances at risk of being damaged, your system could cause an electrical fire.
- Your breakers are tripping continually: Breakers can trip even if your home is well-equipped to meet its energy demands. But if you find yourself resetting your breakers consistently, you may need to update your panel.
