The electrical panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system. Like most types of essential residential systems, electrical systems will eventually require updates, or even a complete replacement. In this blog, air conditioner repair contractor Efficient Systems, Inc. discusses the signs that indicate the need for a new electrical panel.
It Feels Warm to the Touch — If the electrical panel door feels warm to the touch, this usually indicates an electrical overload caused by worn-out components or improper installation.

If the number of appliances in your home has increased since the electrical panel was installed, an update may be necessary.
