Pricing for an Electrical Panel Service
The pricing for an electrical panel service can vary depending on several factors, including the scope of work, the location, the complexity of the job, and the specific requirements of your electrical system. It’s important to note that the following price ranges are general estimates and may not reflect the exact pricing for your specific situation.
It’s always recommended to contact a professional electrical service provider, such as us here at Starnes Electric LLC, for a personalized quote based on your needs. Here are some typical pricing ranges for common electrical panel services:
- Electrical Panel Upgrade The cost to upgrade an electrical panel typically ranges from $1,000 to $3,000 or more. The price may vary based on factors such as the size of the panel, the complexity of the installation, any necessary electrical upgrades, and the cost of materials.
- Electrical Panel Replacement The cost of replacing an electrical panel can range from $1,500 to $4,000 or more. Factors such as the size and type of panel, the complexity of the installation, any necessary electrical upgrades, and the cost of materials can influence the overall price.
- Electrical Panel Installation The cost to install a new electrical panel can range from $1,500 to $3,000 or more. The price may vary based on factors such as the size and type of panel, the complexity of the installation, any necessary electrical upgrades, and the cost of materials.
- Electrical Panel Repair The cost of repairing an electrical panel can vary depending on the specific issue and the extent of the repair needed. Minor repairs may cost anywhere from $100 to $500, while more significant repairs or component replacements could range from $500 to $1,500 or more.
Please keep in mind that these price ranges are general estimates and can vary based on your location and the specific requirements of your electrical system. It’s advisable to contact a reputable electrical service provider for an accurate quote based on your individual needs.
Types Of Electrical Panels That We Could Help You With
- Main electrical panel: Also known as the distribution panel or service panel, it is the primary electrical panel in a building or residence. It receives power from the utility company and distributes it to various circuits throughout the premises.
- Subpanel: A secondary electrical panel that is connected to the main panel. It provides additional circuit capacity and is often installed in remote locations or areas that require separate electrical distribution.
- Fuse box: An older type of electrical panel that uses fuses instead of circuit breakers to protect circuits from overloads. When a circuit exceeds its rated capacity, the fuse burns out and needs to be replaced.
- Circuit breaker panel: The most common type of electrical panel used today. It uses circuit breakers as protective devices to interrupt the flow of electricity in case of an overload or short circuit. Circuit breakers can be reset after tripping.
- Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) panel: This type of panel includes built-in ground fault circuit interrupters. GFCIs are designed to protect against electrical shocks in areas where water is present, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor outlets.
- Arc fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) panel: An AFCI panel includes arc fault circuit interrupters, which detect dangerous electrical arcs caused by damaged wiring or appliances. AFCIs help prevent electrical fires by interrupting power when an arc fault is detected.
- Combination panel: A panel that combines the functionality of both GFCI and AFCI protection. It includes ground fault circuit interrupters and arc fault circuit interrupters in a single panel.
- Three-phase panel: Used in commercial and industrial settings, three-phase panels distribute electricity using three alternating current (AC) power conductors. They provide more power and are suitable for larger electrical loads.
- Solar panel (inverter) panel: Used in solar power systems, this panel receives direct current (DC) electricity generated by solar panels and converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity for use in the building or for feeding back into the electrical grid.
- Control panel: Found in industrial applications, control panels house various control devices, switches, and indicators used to monitor and control electrical equipment and processes.
Electrical Panels vs. Breaker Box
Electrical Panels and Breaker Boxes are related components that work together to distribute and control electrical power within a building. While they serve similar functions, there are some differences between the two:
An electrical panel, also known as a service panel or distribution panel, is the main control center for an electrical system. It receives electrical power from the utility company and distributes it to various circuits throughout a building.
The electrical panel houses circuit breakers or fuses, which protect the circuits from overloading and electrical faults. It typically consists of a metal enclosure with bus bars, neutral and ground bars, and slots for circuit breakers or fuse blocks.
A breaker box, also referred to as a circuit breaker panel, is a specific type of electrical panel that uses circuit breakers as the protective devices. Circuit breakers are switches that automatically trip and interrupt the electrical current when an overload or fault occurs, preventing damage to the electrical system and reducing the risk of electrical hazards. The breaker box is the section within the electrical panel where the circuit breakers are installed.
