Panel Change Outs
A panel change out is usually required to alleviate a problem with the existing panel. Sometimes a breaker might overheat to the point that it will not trip and the buss bar in a panel gets burned. The conductors between the meter and panel may become loose and burn out the main lugs, especially common when aluminum conductors were used.
When you plugged in your new refrigerator, cranked up the air conditioner, or turned on the light to read this report, you probably didn’t give a lot of thought to the wires carrying the electricity.

But you need to pay attention to your home wiring no matter when your home was built or where you live, especially if you live in an older Phoenix home.
