The panel of your electrical system is its core, as well its link to the outside electrical grid, from where you get all of your electricity. If your panel is unable to support the amount of electricity that you use in your Orlando home, you could see power outages, and you may be creating a very dangerous situation in your home. The electricians at Solaris Electric can help you determine whether you need an upgrade, then we can take care of the job.
Your main unit is most likely a large grey box which is located in your garage or basement, inside of which are several switches. Those switches are you “breakers,” and when they “trip,” you’ll experience an outage until you turn the switch back on. If your breakers are tripping frequently or repeatedly, call a professional electrician to have a professional inspection.

How to Know When Your Panel Needs an Upgrade
- You have “screw-in” style fuses: It’s not uncommon for older homes to have these types of systems. When screw-in fuse panels were introduced, they were perfectly fine, but because of the amount of electricity that today’s homes 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 an upgrade.
Remember: Old, outdated panels are more than just an inconvenience. If your unit needs to be upgraded they won’t just cause irritating power outages, but could also lead to damaging smoke or to a house fire. Call a professional immediately if you believe you might be having this problem.
