Outdated Electrical Panels

May Leave Homes Open to Troubles

Today’s society depends more than ever on electricity. Everything seems to be electronic. It’s extremely prevalent in homes now. Most people have at least one computer, several televisions, a stereo system, cell phones, clock radios, and the list continues. All of these devices require electricity to function.

More than half of the homes today were constructed before the 1970s, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That means more than half were built decades before many of these modern, electronic conveniences even were invented. Most of these older homes possessed no more than 60-amp electrical service. Today, homes should have at least 150 amps.

These facts point to a problem—older homes, unless their electrical system has been upgraded, are being overburdened. These outdated electric systems and panels cannot safely handle the demands of today’s society.
