At Blessed Electric & Air, we install a new residential electrical panel upgrades in Dallas, and we maintain and repair existing ones. As you may already know, an electrical control panel is a metal enclosure with several sensitive components. It supplies and regulates the power supply to your home.

The components of a residential electrical panel upgrades include:

  • Circuit and Load Protection
  • Enclosures
  • Incoming Protection and Switching
  • Motion and Drives
  • Power and Energy Monitoring and Control
  • Power Distribution Systems
  • Power factor correction, surge protection and uninterruptible power supplies
  • Power Supplies and Transformers
  • Programmers, timers and variable frequency drives
  • Relays and contractors
  • Safety systems
  • Thermal Management


If your electrical panel is more than 20 years old, it might be due for an upgrade. Before we do residential panel upgrades, we’ll inspect it and check all its components. When installing an electrical panel, we consider the following.

Appropriate size

As much as we don’t want a control panel box to be too big, we don’t want it to be choked up either. That’s why we will choose a size that will take all the components and still have enough space for adequate airflow. With adequate space, there’ll be an easy entry into the metal box for troubleshooting.

Proper Organization

Our electricians in Dallas and Fort Worth also arrange components neatly inside the control panel. Like components are grouped together. We also go further to label every component, including wires, according to the universally accepted format. In situations where we can’t write names in full, we choose abbreviations. For instance, circuit breakers are labeled CB1, CB2…. etc.

So, when another electrician needs to work on your control panel, he’ll be able to navigate through the metal box easily without any assistance.

Proper Ventilation

Overheating can make your control panel malfunction, and heat can damage some of its components. So, we usually choose a location where it will not be exposed to excessive heat. In fact, we prefer to install it where we can dedicate a fan to it. The fan will blow it continuously.

A buildup of dust and debris can block its airflow and make it heat up. This is why we’ll advise you to open it and brush the dust away. You can do it every three months. We will also clean it during our maintenance checks. Always bear in mind that you need to keep your control panel at the right temperature for optimum performance.

Common Problems With Residential Electrical Panels

The electrical panel upgrades in Dallas is the heart and brain of your entire electrical system and should be treated as such. Here are some of the problems with electrical panels. Try your best to avoid them.

Water Damage

There have been situations where we found water in the control panels of our clients. And they could not explain how water got into the metal box. You probably already know that water should never come in contact with electricity. It is a disastrous combination.

We had to clean all the components and dry them to get rid of the moisture before we restored the connection. Never let water come close to your control panel at all. Apart from electrocution, the metallic box could get rusty or corroded.

Defective Service Cables

Some cables deteriorate with time and become defective. If your electrical panel isn’t inspected regularly, you may not know until when the panel begins to malfunction. This is why a maintenance check is necessary.

Besides, low-quality cables are not durable. At Blessed Electric & Air, we use only high-quality cables and other materials.

Improper Wiring

Over the years, we have had to correct many cases of improper electrical panel wiring. Cables are available in various qualities and thicknesses. Thinner and low-quality cables are cheaper. It is unfortunate that some electricians purchase low-quality cables to maximize their profits. Such cables will give you problems later on.

Some wiring mistakes are due to inexperience. For instance, we sometimes see a 20-amp breaker installed for a 10-amp circuit. This kind of mistake will cause problems down the road.

When we inspect your electrical panel, these are the anomalies that we’ll correct first before the upgrade. And after making all the necessary corrections, an upgrade may no longer be necessary. This is one of the reasons why it is better to hire only highly experienced electricians from the get-go. We’ll charge you more to fix the mess of an uncertified electrician than to do the job from scratch.

Substandard Box

Some panels were constructed with substandard materials, and their boxes are fragile. We have also seen faulty circuit breakers that were dead on arrival. By virtue of our experience, we know the best brands in all electrical products. Our electricians can smell fake products a mile away. We have had to replace low-quality accessories while upgrading some residential and commercial panels.

Do you have any problem with your electrical panel or your entire electrical system? We are ready to overhaul your entire electrical architecture. We will start with a comprehensive inspection, and our electricians in San Marcos, Texas will call your attention to all the anomalies they detect.
