Distribution board repair | Electric Panel repair

Increase Your Safety and Convenience With an Distribution board Upgrade

At the very heart of your electrical system is your electrical panel (or fuse box if you still have one). And just like your body has trouble functioning if you have heart problems, your electrical system suffers with an electrical panel issue. Trust the experienced electricians at Hobaica to make sure your home stays safe and usable with a quality upgrade.

When Do You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade?

There are many circumstances in which you might need to replace your existing electrical Distribution board panel, including:

  • Signs of Malfunction - Your breakers should trip whenever your electrical system becomes overloaded. If the tripping is constant or you smell burning or hear buzzing from your panel, you need immediate attention to the issue. Signs of corrosion/rust are another sign to look out for.
  • Your Current Panel is Over 25 Years Old - Especially if your panel is exhibiting other concerning signs, you should get an older panel checked out and replaced.
  • You Still Have a Fuse Box - All fuse boxes are now outdated and pose electrical safety risks. Additionally, they are not equipped to power modern-day appliances.
  • You Have a Defective Brand - These panels pose significant safety risks to those who have them: Federal Pacific Electric, Zinsco and Pushmatic. They are currently obsolete but may exist in older homes.

And if you have an upcoming renovation, we can help you assess whether you’ll need to upgrade your electrical capabilities.

How much does it cost to replace an entire electrical panel?

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.

Can a homeowner replace an electrical panel?

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.

When should I replace my electrical panel?

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.

Hello, just a little note to tell you how great our Technicians were today.Ivan and Troy showed up a little ahead of schedule, met with us, checked out the work areas and got right to work. And they did a fantastic job! I thought I was going to hear all kinds of banging and all kinds of noise but instead it was just a little bit of noise and the cool sound of Ivan whistling... reminded me of my Dad, he always whistled to, it was great.Troy was also quietly working outside.Upon completion of the work Troy and Ivan showed us their work and how the new thermostat worked.They did a great job with the installation, very professional work! I've seen a few air conditioning/furnace installations over the years when building homes with my dad and cousin...and these two technicians (Ivan and Troy) are obviously very good at what they do, and very good with the customer service experience they exhibited to us!!And personally I think they both definitely deserve a raise!!! And no, they didn't ask me to say this, LOL. It's obvious they're humble guys that would never ask for something like this, but they definitely deserve a minimum some fantastic kudos to some great Hobiaca Technicians!Kudos to Ivan and Troy for a job very well done!Thank you,Jack and Jackie Guzman11/11/2021
