Main Electrical Panel 

As a homeowner or business owner, it is important to make sure your main electrical panel suits your particular needs and meets safety standards. The main electrical panel brings in the electricity from the transformer and distributes it appropriately throughout a building. Accordingly, you should be able to rely on it for steady, uninterrupted power when you need it. You should also be able to trust that it will not cause any dangerous problems due to malfunctions, overloaded breakers, outdated technology, or aging breakers. Fortunately, you can turn to Buffalo Electric in Fort Worth, TX, for all your main electrical panel needs. Our professional team of electricians can perform any electric repairs with precision.

Main Electrical Panel Installation or Replacement

Whether you have a new build and require a brand-new electrical system and main electrical panel or have an older home or building and need a main electrical panel replacement, Buffalo Electric electricians can accommodate your needs. If your home or business was built more than 30-50 years ago, it may be time to replace your electrical panel. As with most electrical equipment, your main electrical panel has a limited lifespan. Over time, important functionality will begin to fail. When components become too worn out, which may be accelerated by improper installations, un-adapted systems for increased energy use, or lack of upgrades, the risks of multiple problems may increase. In particular, outdated electrical panels have the potential to cause:

  • Electrical fires
  • Flickering lights
  • Frequent breaker tripping
  • Charring or corrosion on the equipment

If you are concerned that your main electrical panel might need a replacement, Buffalo Electric will send a qualified and experienced electrician to look over your main electrical system. Whether you need small upgrades or an electrical panel replacement, we can find a product that suits your needs and the requirements of your build. It is important for us to consider how much energy you are using regularly, what appliances you are using in those areas, and if you are expecting your power use to vary in the foreseeable future. As we consider all these elements, we will be able to select the appropriate product for your needs and reduce the need for early main electrical panel replacements in the future.
