FAQs About Electrical Panel Repairs and Installations

Unless you are a licensed electrician, you should not attempt to repair an electrical panel on your own. While many household jobs can easily be done as a DIY project, electrical panel work generally is not one of them. Electrical systems are complicated and electrical work, if done incorrectly, can pose a fire hazard to your home. It’s much safer to hire a licensed, experienced electrician to repair or replace an electrical panel in your home.

It depends. Similar to home appliances, an electrical panel that needs only minor repairs may be able to be repaired. However, if it’s damaged, unable to meet your home’s electrical demands or posing a safety hazard, replacing your electrical panel with a new one may be more cost effective and much safer.

The best way to find out how much it will cost to repair your electric panel or install a new one is to get an estimate. The team at A-1 United provides free estimates, and also will give you an educated opinion on whether it would be better to repair your electrical panel or install a new one to better fit your needs.

Great job by all. They were careful of the landscape replacing the A/C unit. Inside the heating system was replaced and the fit and finish was great. Explained the operation of everything. They came back two weeks later and checked out the operation of the systems plus installation. The tech was here over an hour checking out everything. New system is quiet. This is a company that care about its customer. We highly recommend A-1.
