    Service the Golden Rule way

    • Evaluation with repair: Always FREE

    • What factors affect the cost of an electrical panel repair or replacement?

      • Whether the panel can be repaired: When a customer calls us regarding a panel repair, we send someone over to perform a thorough evaluation. That will tell us everything we need to know about what’s wrong with the panel itself. If the panel can be repaired, we’ll tell you how it can be done and how much it will cost. But if it can’t, we’ll share potential replacements at various price points to keep you as closely within your budget as possible.
      • Where the service lines are located: The location of utility lines plays an important role in cost. If the lines are underground, they’ll be a lot easier to reach than if they’re above-ground utility lines. We’re happy to let you know which type of line serves your home. So, if you’d like to know, just ask your electrician during your appointment.
      • Whether the panel requires an upgrade: If a home’s current electrical panel isn’t supplying the amperage the home needs, then the resolution isn’t always a repair, but a replacement. An Golden Rule electrician under these circumstances can suggest a variety of replacement panels or look at some additional options like installing one or more sub-panels, or (if the budget is tight) attempt to adjust the amperage on the existing panel.

    Electrical Panel Repair/Replace FAQ

    Consider upgrading your electrical panel if you:
    • Have a legacy fuse box (common in homes built prior to 1960.)
    • Notice a burnt smell coming from the panel
    • Have constant issues with tripped circuits
    • Have a panel that maxes out at 100 amps or lower

    If any of these are true, contact your friends at Golden Rule. We’ll be happy to give you an estimate for a replacement (or repair if you’d like!)

    Panel repairs or replacements can be quite complex, not to mention dangerous. If a homeowner selects a panel that isn’t right for the home, it can lead to electrical outages and damaged electronics. Worst of all, it could create a serious fire hazard! We highly recommend hiring a professional electrician for this type of work for these and many other reasons.
