Replacing Electrical Panels

Our Team of Electrical Contractors at Postma are knowledgeable and experienced in the upgrading and replacement of electrical panels and fuse boxes in your home.  

Why should I upgrade my electrical panel? 

There are a few simple indicators that an electrical panel update is needed, that can be identified by you as a homeowner. 

  • Electric Panels with Rusted Electrical Parts 
  • Circuit Breakers that Trip Constantly 
  • Dimming or Flickering Lights 
  • Using Several Power Strips 

Many of these issues are indications that your older panel box is overloaded and updating to a modern electrical panel can eliminate these problems, allowing your appliances to work more efficiently. Small to medium sized homes require at least a 200 amp panel, and larger homes can even require a 400 amp electrical panel. Our licensed Electrical Contractors can calculate your amperage needs based on the appliances in your home to offer you the best solutions to your problems. If you are experiencing any of these issues, we advise you to book an electrical preventative inspection with one of our experts, to diagnose the problem and offer you the best available solutions to improve the safety and efficiency of your home. 

Should I have my fuse box replaced? 

Sometimes your home insurance company will require you to have a fuse box replaced with a breaker box before they are willing to insure your home. In simplest terms, fuses are not equipped to handle the level of electrical consumption we demand of our circuits today. Additionally, they are not typically designed with the safety features of updated electrical service panels such as circuit grounding and arc fault protection. These features are meant to protect against fires.

What does it cost to replace or update an electrical panel? 

The cost to replace a fuse box or update your electrical breaker panel varies from home to home, as it depends a large deal on your energy consumption, the size of the home and other factors. Our licensed Electricians can perform a whole home electrical preventative inspection, at a low cost to you, and effectively provide you with solutions and quotes for your residential needs before any of the work begins.

They have helped us out of two jams one a plumbing emergency and today when our furnace in a rental unit broke and the temperature dropped to 49 degrees they came out right away and got us up and running… I can’t thank them enough and will turn to them again the next time we need something…”

“Had some leaking/flooding from an unknown source, Postma was able to schedule a plumber to come out the same day. Even though the plumber, Mark, was running behind with his other emergency calls after the cold snap he fit us in at the end of his day. Mark was kind, thorough and accurate in diagnosing the issue. Would definitely recommend Mark and Postma to anyone with a plumbing issue.”
