There are several signs that could indicate your business is in need of an electrical panel upgrade, from crackling sounds coming from the electrical panel and signs of corrosion or rust on the breakers to overheating electrical service conductors.
However, even though you’re not experiencing any of those signs, there are circumstances that call for a panel upgrade, such as installation of new equipment which requires dedicated or speciality outlets. Another instance can be the panel being “recalled” or outdated, causing the breakers not to trip under an excessive load or even a dead short.
Also, if your computers don’t have a dedicated circuit, or you’re using multiple extension cords, then an update is called for. Any additions or renovations to your business may require an electrical panel upgrade, especially if you’re not on a 240 volt circuit already.
