cost to upgrade electrical panel

Question: how much does it cost to upgrade electrical panel ?

how much does it cost to upgrade electrical panel ?  Let’s start by understanding an electrical panel. The electrical panel is a load center that supplies the power to all your devices. Load centers have resettable breakers to prevent overloading of circuits. Circuit breakers can prevent fires due to overloading.

So, how much does it cost to upgrade electrical panel ?

Well that all depends on multiple things, like size, capacity, bus material and  brand name.  Not all electrical panels are created equal, some electricians skimp on quality to undercut the guys providing reliable services and quality products. Good electricians know when to skimp and when to spend.  (Not all electricians are created equal, I’ll talk about that in another post).  In every panel there is a thing called a bus bar, this bus bar it the heart of the electrical panel. The bus bar distributes power to all the breakers in the panel. This is typically where some electricians skimp by purchasing aluminum bus bars instead of copper bus bars. 98% of people know nothing about a bus bar, not knowing about this can result in costly replacements shortly down the road. Aluminum melts at 1,221°F  and Copper melts at 1,984°F, making the copper bus more durable. Some brands offer galvanized or plain steel enclosure boxes. Galvanized boxes are more durable due to the zinc coating that’s added to prevent rusting. As an electrician I know that rust means code failure. So why not prevent this by having a galvanized panel box.
