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
Is it possible to have two main 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.
How do I size an electric box for my home?
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.
How many electrical circuits can my home have?
A 100-amp electric box can facilitate 20 to 42 circuits, depending on how it’s manufactured.
