There are a number of indicators that may suggest it is time to consider an upgrade. The age of the previous installation alone is one of them. There may be issues with the distribution of power which can include frequently tripping breakers, flickering lights, electric panel upgrade needed,or power being inconsistently sent through outlets. There may also be the presence of overheating, corroded, melted, or dirty components.
