Electrical Panel Replacement in Central Iowa

While a good electrical panel can last for many years, the time may come when you need to think about replacing or upgrading your current panel for something that is newer or has more amperage. As your family grows, you enlarge your house, or you add more appliances, a panel upgrade may become a vital part of keeping your electrical system up to date. 

At Coffin Electric, we are more than happy to spend time with you to evaluate your current system and find out if a panel replacement or upgrade is a good investment for your home. We have years of experience in repairing, installing, and upgrading panels, and can help you choose the right panel and service. 

Coffin Electric: Servicing a Crucial Part of Your Electrical System

Your electrical panel is as vital to your electrical system as your heart is to your body. Without it, electricity entering your home could not be properly regulated. Your electrical panel protects your home because any time there is an abnormal surge of electricity, whether from inside your home while running a large appliance or from outside the home, your electrical panel will automatically trip. Keeping your electrical panel updated is crucial for the health of your electrical system, which is why we are committed to providing these services to our customers in Central Iowa

Signs that You Need a Panel Upgrade or Replacement

If you need an electrical panel upgrade or replacement with Coffin Electric, there will be a few signs that will point to a need to call us. The average lifespan of a panel is between 25 and 40 years, so if your panel is this old or older, you can have us inspect your panel at your next appointment. You should always check to make sure that your panel is not warm, that your circuit breakers are not tripping more than usual, and that there are no buzzing sounds coming from the panel. 

Most modern panels in Central Iowa have between 100 amps and 200 amps. If your home still has a 60 amp panel, this probably isn’t sufficient to safely support your modern appliances, so it may be a good idea to upgrade. Additionally, if you are planning on adding a hot tub, an electric vehicle charging station, or a new HVAC system to your home, or if you are building a new addition, you will also want to consider an upgrade. 

Choosing the Right Panel

If you have come to a point where you are tired of not being able to run your microwave and vacuum at the same time, Coffin Electric is here to help you make a wise decision. We generally recommend upgrading to a service that is slightly more than what you need right now. This gives you some room to grow if you want to make further improvements to your home in the near future. At your request, we will begin by determining the amps of electricity your home uses and then recommending a service. After years of serving local communities, we know which brands are trustworthy and which to avoid, and we will guide you through the process.
