JMC Electric Can Install New Residential Electrical Panels When Old Ones Are Unsafe
The residential electrical panel of your Kansas City home wiring system is its core, as well its link to the outside electrical grid, from where you get all your electricity.

The electricians at JMC Electric can help determine whether your panel needs an upgrade, and then do the job for you.
How do you know when you need a new residential electrical panel?
- You have “screw-in” style fuses – It’s not uncommon for older homes to have these types of panels. When screw-in fuse panels were introduces, they were perfectly fine, but because of the amount of electricity that today’s home typically use, they are no longer considered adequate, and you should have them upgraded.
- Your breakers trip frequently – Even if you don’t have old, screw-in fuses, if you have breakers that frequently trip, lights that constantly flicker, or if you’re unable to use multiple major appliances at once, you most likely need your panel upgrades.
Your main electrical panel is most likely a large grey box which is located in your garage or basement, inside of which are several switches. Those switches are your breakers, and when they trip, you’ll experience an electrical outage until you turn the switch back on. If your breakers are tripping frequently or repeatedly, call JMC Electric to have your residential electrical panel in Kansas City inspected.
