A breaker panel, also known as an electrical panel, load center, service panel or breaker box, is a steel box that holds multiple circuit breakers wired to circuits that distribute power throughout your home.
Old main panels have limitations on available space to add circuits or they have fuses ,Some old panels have had circuits added and have maxed out,Many old panels are of inferior quality and simply stop working and need to be replaced.
There are two main reasons you may want to replace your electrical panel or add a sub-panel: if you need to add circuit breakers but have reached the capacity of your current breaker panel, or if you want to upgrade from fuses to circuit breakers.
A new breaker panel will not provide more power to your home. If your home needs more power overall, use the services of a professional electrician to upgrade, a process that will include a new breaker panel as well as other accessories, such as new cables and a new electrical meter.
