Electrical Panel Repair & Replacement in Twin Cities
The electrical panel powers everything in your home, and it’s good to ensure that it’s up to code, and it serves all your needs. If your current electrical feels outdated or is running beyond capacity, you should plan for an electrical panel replacement. Aquarius Home Services offers you affordable panel upgrading and replacement solutions in Minnesota.
Some electrical panel replacement solutions offered by Aquarius Home Services include:
Electrical Panel Upgrades
One of the main reasons for a panel upgrade is that the current one is underpowered, failing to meet your electrical demands. Many homes are equipped with a 100- to 150-amp panel. This system will overload on adding new appliances like a hot tub or a new HVAC unit.
Building a new room or extension will also push up your electrical consumption, and you might have to upgrade the electrical supply unit. Aquarius will upgrade your load handling to 200-amps, ensuring that you don’t overload your service panel and you can accommodate future electrical loads.
Upgrading the Fuse Box
The odds are that the fuse box in your home was never designed to handle the current electrical loads. You’re free to consult one of our expert electricians if you’re unsure of the existing capacity. Aquarius technicians usually recommend switching to circuit breaker systems because fuses are often too small to handle large appliances and break down fast.
Compatible with ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI), circuit breakers secure your home from electrical accidents. They’re well-matched to modern electronic devices, and they’re easy to rest when tripped.
New Panel Installation
An electrical panel is one of the easily-overlooked items during a house remodel or upgrade, yet it has the potential to increase your home’s value. We can expand the electric circuit to accommodate more devices and protect the entire system from electric accidents. Poorly wired panels can cause voltage drops which destroy your electric equipment.
If you’re around Minnesota, Aquarius Home Services will send you a qualified electrician to handle the installation. We’ll help you determine whether an upgrade or replacement would be the right move, and we’ll build you a panel that will last for years.
Sub-Panel Installation and Moving an Electrical Panel
Moving electrical equipment is a sensitive job, and it’s only safe when done by a qualified professional. It is slightly cheaper to move a panel without doing any upgrades. But sometimes, a few touch-ups might be necessary to bring it up to code or increase its amperage.
If you already have a modern system installed, but it has not met all of your power needs, we can add a sub-panel to supply the extra requirements.

When Should I Replace My Electrical Panel?

- You have frequent power surges and persistent flickering lights.

Contact Aquarius Home Services if you need help with electrical panel replacement.
How Do You Tell if a Circuit Breaker Is Bad?
There are obvious signs like persistent tripping, a burning smell from the breakers, and obvious physical damage. However, we recommended getting this checked out by a qualified electrician before deciding on a replacement.
Can I Replace My Electrical Panel by Myself?
Anyone without electrical training and experience should not go beyond basic tasks like inspecting the panel. Besides risking electrocution, poor installation could destroy your appliances and expose your home to accidental fires. It’s thus important to always engage a qualified electrician to work on the electrical panels.
How Much Does It Cost to Replace an Electrical Panel?
The total cost to replace a panel depends on many factors like home size, amperage, and the number of circuits needed. The average price is a little over $1,000 to install a 100-Amp system, and it goes up to $4,000 for a 200-Amp system. It’s usually hard to tell the exact amount you will incur because of additional items like rewiring or breaking through a wall.
How Long Will the Installation Take?
The duration depends on the extent of the panel upgrade job and the skill of your electrician. A day’s work would be enough for most panel replacement jobs when you have all the materials onsite. However, a few more days may be needed when there’s more work to be done on the walls, wiring, and switches.
Will Upgrading My Electrical Panel Increase the Home Value?
An electrical panel replacement can be costly, but it’s worth every penny. A panel increases your home’s safety and energy efficiency, raising its appeal to potential buyers should you put it on the market and fetch you a better price.
