While it is not a repair that likely crosses your mind, there are many reasons you may need to upgrade your home’s electrical panel. You may already be aware if you are unable to run multiple appliances at the same time, or you plan to add additional outlets, but for some homeowners their problems are not as clear. Calling in a Tulsa electrician can help you troubleshoot any issues you are currently experiencing and address any concerns you have.  Some reasons you may need a professional inspection include:

Added Strain to the Electrical Panel

During the time you own your home, you will likely increase the demands on your home’s electrical. Some increases are obvious like an addition to the home or a remodel. Other sources are more subtle, including adding or replacing appliances resulting in the use of more power. Before you know it your current electrical panel can become overwhelmed.

Outdated Electrical in Older Homes

For homes that were built before 1960, one situation is a fuse system when it comes to the electrical panel. Fast forward a few decades and those fuse systems have been replaced with circuits. One reason for concern is wires leading into the fuse can become very hot, and this can present a dangerous situation in the home. This is also a good time for a Tulsa electrician to check if your home’s electrical is up to current codes.

Storms or Other Damage

A panel can also become damaged requiring you to call a Tulsa electrician for a comprehensive inspection and if needed a full replacement. Water damage from storms or flooring are a common example or this situation.

The DIY approach is great for many small home repair projects, but electrical troubleshooting and repairs should not be on the list.  With years of experience serving the local area, the team at Colburn Electric can provide upfront pricing and in many cases same day service, so you can take care of any issues with your home’s electrical. 

Problems with electrical can be a stressful situation for many homeowners. Alleviate the worry when you call a professional Tulsa electrician from Colburn Electric.
