The cost to have your electrical panel replaced will depend on what kind of electrical panel you’re having installed. The average cost to replace a 100 amp electrical panel typically ranges from $850-$1,100, and the average cost to upgrade to a 200 amp electrical panel is between $1,300-$2,500. If you’re planning on upgrading to a 400 amp electrical panel, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2,000-$4,000.
You should never attempt to replace an electrical panel yourself. You should always have a professional electrician complete your panel upgrade. Electrical work carries risks and replacing an electrical panel yourself can be especially dangerous if you don’t have the proper training, experience and tools to work on one. Replacing an electrical panel yourself can cause electrical shock and, if installed incorrectly, it can increase the risk of an electrical fire. If your electrical panel needs replacing, calling a licensed professional to replace it for you can guarantee its effectiveness and your safety.
As a general rule, electrical panels need to be replaced every 26-40 years. However, you may need to have it replaced sooner if you notice:
- Physical damage to the panel.
- Rust forming on the panel.
- Circuit breakers tripping frequently.
- Dimming/flickering lights.
- Scorching inside the panel.
- Burning smells coming from the panel.
