If you were to imagine that your Houston home or business were a living, breathing thing, its electrical system would be the closest thing to a circulatory system as it gives life to so many different necessary functions. And just as your body’s circulatory system is controlled by your heart, an electrical panel is what regulates the flow of electricity throughout your building.
And just like your heart, your home or business’s electrical panel will get old and its effectiveness will diminish as it struggles to keep up with the demands of newer electronics. If your home or business is older than 10 years, it already may not be able to meet the energy demands you’re placing on it. So, what can Houston home and business owners do to make sure their building’s electricity is working safely and efficiently?
The one thing they absolutely cannot do is nothing. Doing nothing could mean overloading your Houston building’s electrical system, increasing your risk of fire or smoke damage. Rather than put your property and those who occupy it in danger, GAB Electric LLC can help.

Signs Your Home Or Business Needs A Panel Upgrade
Unless you have received some training in the electrical trade, it might seem like a daunting task to identify that your Houston home or business’s electrical panel is the problem. However, there are a couple of telltale signs that you are overdue for a panel upgrade.
Old and out-of-date electrical panels typically struggle to multitask. What we mean by this is if you have noticed that your lights flicker when your refrigerator’s motor kicks in, then it’s usually a clear indication that you could benefit from a panel upgrade.
Some other signs to be mindful of include:
- You hear crackling noises from the breaker box panel.
- You see corrosion and rust on the breaker switches.
- The interior of the breaker box is hot.
- Appliances are running at less than full power.
- Your home or business only has two-pronged outlets and no three-pronged grounded outlets.
- You have a fuse block panel or split-buss panel, which do not have a main breaker.
