Dallas Fort Worth Electrical Panel Upgrades

Trust The Experts At TopTech

Electrical Panel Service Throughout DFW

The condition of your electrical system probably doesn’t come to your attention until a breaker trips, lights flicker, you hear electrical humming or it just stops working. All of these symptoms are signs that there is something going wrong. Age, dangerous brands, capacity, and grounding all have a bearing on the safety and reliability of your electrical panel.
 
Federal Pacific and Zinsco manufactured electrical panels have proven to be HAZARDOUS and were the subject of class action lawsuits. If you have one of these dangerous panels it should be replaced immediately. These panels have a high circuit breaker failure rate, meaning that the breakers over time melt and will no longer trip so they do not prevent the flow of electricity. This has been the cause of many electrical fires.
 
If you have an older panel and meter you should have your electrical system inspected by a licensed electrician for many reasons. One of which is to ensure that your circuit breakers are still working. It is possible to have a circuit breaker fail and no longer prevent the flow of electricity beyond capacity, which could overheat the system and cause an electrical fire.
 

DFW Electrical Panel Installation and Repair

Is your panel safe?

Here are some things to consider when evaluating, or thinking about updating or replacing your current electrical panel:

  1. Exactly how old is your electrical panel? If you’re unsure, it’s probably the same age as your home. 15 – 20 years is the normal life span of an electrical panel.
  2. Do you have a Federal Pacific Or Zinsco Panel in your house? It is important to replace your FPE Stab Lok or Zinsco Breaker panel as these are deemed hazardous by the National Fire Protection Agency and have been the cause of countless fires.
  3. Exactly how old is your house? If your house is older than 15 years, it is probably time to check into updating or replacing. Contact TopTech Electric here.
  4. Is there a main breaker on my panel? A main breaker serves as a disconnect to completely shut power down to your home in case of an emergency. Older, outdated panels often do not have this.
  5. Flickering lights can be a caution and could be an indication of poor electrical connections. If lights are flickering within your home in several locations, it might be a issue within the electrical panel.
  6. Are my service cables old or damaged? The wiring where the utility company connects to your home or structure and also your electrical panel are your obligation. Troubles may consist of damaged or broken insulation, loose cables, or damaged or missing clamps & anchors.
  7. Does my panel show any type of signs of moisture, water or corrosion? Water & Electricity are a lethal mix. If there is any corrosion, milky white deposit, or rust on any electrical wiring or steel components of your panel, you must have it inspected for feasible water damage.
  8. Are you doing any type of home improvement or construction project? Your existing electrical panel may not be able to manage the additional electrical load or support the now required AFCI OR GFCI breakers.

Why Is My Circuit Breaker Buzzing?

If you notice a humming noise coming from your breaker, you more than likely have a severe electrical wiring issue. Leaving this issue unresolved is a serious threat. Below are some reasons your breaker may buzz. Never attempt to address this yourself, contact a licensed electrician immediately.

  • Failing to trip: The circuit breaker works to cut (or “trip”) power to a circuit when the electrical draw is too high, or if there is a direct short. If your circuit breaker goes bad, it will not trip as well, which will leave the overpowered electric current flowing through the wire.
  • Loosely connected wires: Buzzing can happen from a loose or damaged wire connected to your breaker. Sparks might also be flying behind the panel cover during this. Contact a licensed electrician for proper repairs.
  • Failing equipment: Components like breakers can give off this type of noise as they start to fail and near their end of life.

USE CAUTION AROUND ANY ELECTRICAL PANEL OR EQUIPMENT AND DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE COVER FOR ANY REASON. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.

If you need help addressing any of these questions or want to schedule an electrical panel assessment, please call the Electricians at TopTech Electric at 682-262-5759.

Mike was as friendly and professional as could be. He identified the problem with our current outlet and installed a new one in a more suitable location with ease. The service wasn't "cheap" necessarily, but with electrical issues, you don't want cheap, I want good and that's what I got.

Had a really hot breaker panel and called these folks to come out and set the wife and myself at ease. Midnight call and the tech, Allen, was fantastic. Explained everything to us like the laymen we were. I’d do business with them again for sure.

Mike was amazing. We liked that he was honest on the product we had and gave us suggestions on what could work better so we wouldn't have trouble down the line. We appreciate the professionalism and honestly. Not to many companies carry that value. We will differently use you all again and recommend.

I can't say enough about Top Tech. I have an older home and one day, I noticed one outlet was buzzing. I called Top Tech and they were there for me within an hour. I had them come back and pigtail my outlets from aluminum to copper. Mike and Garrett were amazing!! They worked all day w/o lunch and did an outstanding job. Love, love this company... I'm now a customer for life!👍💖

I had several electrical items I needed to have fixed and/or added in my house. I posted a job on Thumbtack and Top Tech was the first choice in the list of companies that could perform those jobs. Based on their high ratings, I gave them a call.Allan Shocknesse is the electrician that has been to our house twice for electrical work we need done. Yesterday, he came out and installed several new outlets in my garage, replaced a burned out outlet and fixed my external outlet for the front yard. As with the previous trip out for repairs, Allan was on time (actually 15 minutes early) and extremely professional. He explained all costs for both visits to me on the first visit as well as what I could expect as far as the whole process went. I would highly recommend Top Tech Electrical and Allan Shocknesse. I will definitely be using them again in the near future.

We needed a last minute electrical inspection to help us learn more about a house we were considering buying. They were able to fit us in and took a look at the house. The inspection was well performed with a hand written report about what needed to be improved, and a digital report with pictures later. I couldn't be happier.

Pricing was unambiguous, but in the end a little more than hoped; $409 to replace a broken breaker. However, based on the other facets, including personable interaction, yet mindful of the current social climate, this business is worth the extra buck. They (i.e. Mike White) did thoroughly troubleshoot the issues I brought up and determined there was no problem in 2 of 3 areas, which could have cost over $1100. With professional explanations without any condescension, I felt the work and experience from these professionals was worth it.
