A panel is defined as a unit that holds all the electrical circuits to power your home. You may experience tripped breakers, dimmed lights, small power outages throughout your house and that is a good indicator of needing a panel upgrade. If these issues are occurring, they may be frustrating, but more importantly, they are unsafe. This could also mean that your home requires more power than what is originally provided. Operating your home without the proper flow of power will present big problems in the long run.
Small electrical panels were used in older homes, but modern houses have a larger panel because electricians have found that in present day people use more electricity. More than likely, if your home is older, it is important to get your panel checked and updated.
If current is not directed properly the panel will overheat and cause fires, smoke and melting. Panel upgrades are also important because the National Electrical Code is updated every so often, therefore your panel needs to be compliant with the same code.
