What Do Minneapolis Electrical Panel Upgrades Involve?

Your home’s electrical panel regulates electricity distribution in your home. When functioning properly, the panel will allow safe amounts of electricity to flow through a circuit to power lights, outlets, and appliances.

Older homes with fewer circuits only allow a maximum of 60 amps to be distributed across all devices. Today, however, the standard service sizes for residential homes are 100 amps, 200 amps, and 400 amps.

Upgrading an older panel allows more power to be safely distributed across outlets, lights, and appliances, so you can enjoy continued use of all your devices. This upgrade generally involves:

  • Temporarily shutting electricity service to your home
  • Cutting and removing wires in the panel
  • Unscrewing and removing the old system
  • Installing all connections for the new system
  • Testing the new system to ensure it’s operating safely and correctly

Electrical panel replacement can be extremely dangerous to perform without proper electrical training.

To ensure your electrical panel upgrade is completed safely, efficiently, and flawlessly, call the expert electricians at Genz-Ryan at (612) 223-6158 or contact us online now!

Signs Your St. Paul Electrical Panel Needs an Upgrade

If you notice any of these red flags at your Minneapolis-St. Paul home, it’s likely time for an electrical panel upgrade:

  • Circuit breakers are frequently tripped.
  • Running multiple electrical devices or appliances at once causes poor performance across other devices (i.e., lights dimming when other devices powered on).
  • You need to use extension cords throughout your home.
  • Your current panel is at least 40 years old.

In the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, the average home was built in 1977, meaning the average local resident lives in a home where an electrical panel is past its 40-year life span. If you’ve experienced any of the issues or are living in a home built before 1980, it may be time to contact Genz-Ryan for electrical inspection ad panel upgrade service.
