Is It Time to Upgrade My Electrical Panel?
We understand that you don’t want to invest in a service unnecessarily, and we’re here to help you make the right choice for your individual system.
Here are a few signs your electrical panel needs an update:
- Its 25+ years old
- There are not enough outlets
- The panel is warm to the touch
- Lights dim or flicker when using appliances
The National Electric Code updates every three years to ensure your safety, meaning eight updates over 25 years can cause your panel to be outdated and unsafe. Luckily, Village Home Services completes a safety inspection during every service to ensure the viability of your electrical system.
However, issues like dimming lights when plugging in appliances or a warm-to-the-touch panel can indicate several problems behind your walls, including arching or exposed wires that have deteriorated over the years. Your electrical panel is responsible for safely distributing power throughout the various circuits in your home.
If you excessively use extension cords or suffer from some of the above issues, you lack the energy necessary to power your appliances and put your home at risk for electrical hazards. Our expert electrical panel upgrades in Chelmsford solve these issues while allowing you to add more outlets to your home so you can use fewer extension cords.

Do I Need an Electrical Subpanel?
A subpanel is a smaller version of your primary service panel that distributes power to a specific area on your property. A subpanel is often used in garages, sheds, accessory dwelling units (ADU), or for pools and hot tubs. While these areas can be connected to your primary panel, choosing a subpanel for these uses may be beneficial.
In areas that are disconnected from your home, it can be inconvenient to go inside the primary residence to reset a tripped breaker, especially if you’re renting an ADU. Connecting a sub panel to this long-term rental allows you to track their specific energy usage for utility payments and prevents them from needing to enter your home to reset a tripped breaker.
A subpanel can also reduce costs by saving time and money during construction by reducing wire runs between circuits and your main panel. This shorter distance also increases energy efficiency by preventing significant voltage drops so that you can save money over time. Overall, our expert electrical subpanel installation in Chelmsford offers various advantages that can benefit you.
