Electric Box Replacement in the DC Metro Area

You probably take your home’s electric service panel for granted—that is, until you start noticing problems with it. Electrical wiring is complex and dangerous, so it’s important to leave repair and replacement work to a licensed electrician. That’s where United Air Temp comes in. We have over 90 years of experience providing reliable electrical services to our customers in the Metro DC Area.

If you’re having trouble with your electric box, contact us to speak with a professional about your concerns.

Signs You Need Electric Box Replacement

It may be time for a new electric box if:

  • Your home is more than 20 to 30 years old: If your electrical panel is original to the house, it may be wearing out by now. Technology has also changed significantly in the past few decades, meaning your service panel may no longer keep up with electrical demand.
  • You want more outlets or new appliances: Adding outlets or installing new 240V appliances requires an electric box upgrade.
  • You have an old Federal Pacific Electric panel: FPE products were popular from the 1950s to the 1980s, but they have since been recalled due to frequent breakdowns and electrical fires.
  • You notice problems with your electric box: The service panel should operate silently. Call an electrician immediately if you notice humming, buzzing, sparking, or discoloration.
  • You have unreliable electric power: Problems such as flickering lights, frequently tripped breaks, hot or smoking outlets, and electrical odors are all signs of trouble with your electric box.

Frequently Asked Questions About Electric Boxes

Yes. The installation must conform to all National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements. For instance, the main electrical drop must be sized for both panels, and each panel needs its own utility meter.

Trust this task to a licensed electrician, knowing that most homes require at least a 100-amp panel. This amperage is large enough to power a medium-sized home with several 240V appliances and a central air conditioner.

A 100-amp electric box can facilitate 20 to 42 circuits, depending on how it’s manufactured.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.

testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
