When to Call Doug's
There are numerous signs to look out for which may indicate you have an electrical problem.
We recommend that you:
You can use your nose to help pinpoint any electrical issues near outlets and your electrical panel. Burning smells indicate that fire damage has begun. If you do smell anything smoky or odd, contact an electrician right away to get the problem resolved.
When your system is overloaded, your circuit breaker trips and shuts off power to the circuit. This is completely normal. However, when it occurs often, such as numerous times per month, it is indicative of a serious electrical issue.
Without directly touching any wiring, feel for unusually warm or vibrating outlets. These are signs that you have faulty wiring or another serious electrical issue.

But you don’t have to wait to get hurt or for your house to burn down. A leading electrical contractor in the region, Doug’s Service Company can replace or upgrade your electrical panel. Let us visit and take a look at your existing unit. If it does not meet your electrical needs or current standards, you can count on us for:
Electrical Panel Replacement
If your home is over 25 years old and hasn’t had a new panel installed, it’s time to start thinking about replacing or at least checking it. Some panels can last 40 years but our technicians will look for any developing issues. Any panel that still uses fuses should be replaced ASAP.
Also consider electrical panel replacement if:
Circuit Breakers Frequently Trip:
If circuit breakers trip soon after you reset them, the panel may be overloaded and unable to keep up with the demand.
Buzzing, Humming, or Clicking Noises:
Noise from the panel or outlets should be checked by an electrician as it can indicate a dangerous problem.
The Panel Is Warm:
The panel can heat up if a wire is not connected properly, is damaged, or its insulation is worn, which can start an electrical fire.
If there’s a strange smell around your electrical panel, something is starting to burn, has burnt, or is melted. The reason behind this must be addressed quickly.
Contact an electrical inspector if there’s water damage near or on the panel to determine if you need electrical panel replacement.

Electrical Panel Upgrade
Even if your electrical panel is working, it may be a good idea to have an electrical company upgrade it. Many older panels don’t provide more than 60 amps of service. That’s not enough to run high-power appliances and devices. Therefore, you need to update your home’s electrical capacity. The only way to do this is to have a new service panel installed. For most homes, a 100-amp or 200-amp panel is fine, but depending on your electrical demand, you may want to go as high as 400 amps.
The technicians at Doug’s are trained to evaluate your home and the amount of combined electricity your lights, appliances, and electronics use. Since the panel supplies electricity to every part of your home, it’s important to select just the right solution. We can help with that to ensure you fully benefit from your electrical panel upgrade.
