Most circuit breaker panels last between 25-40 years before they need replacing. How long it’ll last depends on how much the electrical demand of the home has increased, and if you’ve experienced any issues already. Read on to learn more about how to tell if you need an electrical panel upgrade!

If the electrical panel in your home is the “heart” of your electrical system, its electrical wiring is the veins and arteries. When things start to go wrong with your home’s wiring, it’ll become readily apparent in many ways.
If you live in an older home that was built 30+ years ago, then the risk of experiencing electrical problems is greater than if you lived in a new home. Early electrical wiring was not always well grounded or insulated, which means that older wiring has a higher chance of having issues and potentially igniting an electrical fire.
Also, modern-day appliances and usage make excessive demands on your home’s wiring that older home electrical systems aren’t necessarily used to. High-efficiency appliances, smartphones, and all modern electronics can be taxing to the system.
You should never attempt DIY fixes when it comes to your home’s wiring. Let’s go over some issues that require a highly trained electrician for rewiring in Nashville, TN to take care of it for you.

But these safety devices should not be ignored. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 3 out of 5 home fire deaths occur in homes that lack smoke detectors or where the smoke alarms didn’t work.
