When Will Your Insurer Require an Electrical Upgrade

Your insurance provider will want a copy of the electrical inspection that was performed when you purchased the property as well as a copy of any inspections performed after an electrical service upgrade. You may need a new electrical panel, or additional wiring updates if you are currently having any of the following problems:

  • The electrical panel is hot
  • There is a burning, melting, or chemical-type smell coming from the unit
  • Your breakers are tripping frequently
  • Switches are capable of processing more power than the supporting wiring
  • The panel is oversubscribed
  • You have aluminum wiring
  • Main service panel needs to be replaced to provide more power for the utility
  • You have dangerous, old knot and tube wiring
  • A fuse box cannot support the required load
  • New appliances are being installed which require more power than your service panel can carry

What About Electrical Panel Wiring?

The dangers of putting in a new electrical service box without adjusting electrical panel wiring can be fatal. Statistics show that the chances of electrical fires are significantly higher when a panel upgrade is performed with no attention to the gauge, insulation strength, and length capacity of the circuits. Wiring that is rated to carry a lower amperage can overheat before circuits break, and before you know it, you’re dealing with a fire or the risk of electrocution and shocks. If your property has failed a recent inspection, the prospect of rewiring may seem daunting. Allow us to take the hassle out of making sure your investment complies will all your insurer's requirements.
