How Do Electrical Panels Work?

Your home gets its electricity from the electric grid, where it gets distributed to different circuits through your home’s electrical panel.

Picture the flow of electricity throughout your home similar to water coursing through a pipe, measured in amperes or amps. Older homes in Southeast Michigan typically have panels that can handle a maximum of 60 or 100 amps, while newer homes are often set up to handle 200 amps or more.

As we add more security systems, entertainment stations, appliances, and other electronic devices in our Clinton Township, MI, homes, the need to upgrade the electricity becomes greater and greater.

  • Rusty Panel
    Water and electricity don’t mix well. If there’s rust, water could be leaking onto your panel. Water inside your panel box can cause circuit breaker issues and pose a safety hazard. Be sure to call our licensed professionals to replace the panel.


  • Breakers Keep Tripping
    Do your breakers trip a lot, particularly when you run appliances that require more electricity, such as your air conditioner, heat pump, washing machine, or dryer? This could indicate that you have an outdated panel that can’t keep up with your electrical needs. Alternatively, it may be undersized. The standard panel size for most modern homes is 200 amps. Larger homes may require a 400 amp panel.


  • Flickering Lights
    Lighting that flickers on and off constantly can be a sign of an electrical panel problem. If the issue is house-wide and occurs rain or shine, have our Great Dane Heating, Cooling, Electrical, & Plumbing electricians check it out immediately.


  • Irregular Noises
    Some noise is to be expected—a steady “hum” indicates a healthy breaker box. However, any crackling, hisses, or pops are a cause for concern. They mean electricity is making contact with something it’s not supposed to and causing damage. This could also indicate loose or frayed wiring.Great Dane Heating, Cooling, Electrical, & Plumbing offers 24/7 emergency electrical services. Call us whenever you need our help.

    The Dangers of an Outdated Panel

    According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), faulty electrical wiring is the leading cause of home electrical fires in the United States. These fires have devastating consequences, including injuries, property damage, and even death.

    An outdated or malfunctioning electrical panel can significantly increase your risk of an electrical fire. Here’s why:

  • Limited Capacity: Older homes often have panels with a limited capacity, which may not be sufficient for the power demands of modern appliances and electronics. This can lead to overloading, overheating, and potential fire hazards.
  • Fuse Boxes: Homes built before the 1960s may still have fuse boxes instead of circuit breakers. Fuses are less safe and reliable than circuit breakers, and they can’t handle the increased electrical needs of today’s homes.
  • Safety Issues: Over time, electrical panels can deteriorate due to wear and tear, moisture exposure, or faulty components. This can lead to arcing, overheating, and other safety concerns.
