Get Your House Electrically Ready for Winter

Winter is just around the corner with severe storms and colder conditions on their way. Homeowners should not wait until a blizzard covers your yard with snow to get ready for the wintry conditions of the toughest season. Below are three basic things you can do to get your house electrically ready for winter.

Great Reasons for Getting a Heavy-Up Before Winter – Part 2

As discussed in Part 1, a heavy-up (electrical panel upgrade) before winter will help ensure the safety of your family throughout the holiday season when electrical loads jump dramatically.

Part 2 will discuss Electrical Odors, Fuse Box, Overusing Power Strips, Tripping Breakers, and Warm Electrical Panels. Work with an experienced licensed electrician for your safety and best results.

Electrical Odors


Don’t ignore electrical burning odors coming from an electrical panel. This could indicate a faulty circuit breaker or improperly connected wiring. In either case, there may be a serious hazard with the potential for an electrical fire.

Fuse Box


Homes with fuse boxes were typically built before 1960. If this is the case for your house, electricians recommend that you install an electrical panel with circuit breakers. Fuses that blow require replacement, while circuit breakers just need an easy flip of the switch to reset. Insurance companies consider circuit breakers safer and will charge less for coverage.

Overusing Power Strips


Homes that have numerous extension cords and power strips because there aren’t enough wall outlets are less safe. Adding wall outlets in every area a home needs more may require upgrading the existing electrical panel to handle the greater demand for power.

Tripping Breakers


An electrical panel that crackles or has circuit breakers that trip often may require replacement. Tripping sometimes occurs when too many appliances are plugged into a circuit causing an electrical overload. As a safety measure, power is cut off to prevent the overheating of wires. A new electrical panel may be needed to handle the existing load.

Warm Electrical Panels


A serious warning sign is when an electrical panel feels warm to the touch. It may indicate overloading, a faulty panel, or an improper installment. Any of these three symptoms may require an upgrade.

Get Ready for Your Home’s Electrical Upgrade



Modern homes have much greater electrical capabilities than older homes. Unfortunately, older homes with outdated electrical wiring are incapable of powering today’s modern devices. Before hiring a licensed electrician for a wiring project, it's wise to spend time considering which rooms need improvements and what the scope of the work will be.
