Can a Homeowner Replace an Electrical Panel in Texas?
There are many areas of the house that are safe to DIY and other areas where it’s best to call a professional. Anything involving electrical work is one of those areas we strongly recommend calling a professional Electrician. When it comes to electrical panels, they can be considered the heart of the home. When it’s time to get one replaced you may be wondering if this is something you can do on your own.
To determine if you are allowed to replace your own electrical panel, reach out to your local authorities. Not all cities in Texas are the same so finding out what your city requires will take some digging. However, a homeowner is typically allowed to replace the electrical panel or do any upgrades throughout the home– As long as the necessary requirements are met and permitted with the local jurisdiction (AKA, the city).
Working with anything involving electricity can be very dangerous and we prefer our community to be safe rather than sorry. At the end of the day, it is your personal decision to either replace it or call in a professional to replace the panel. We strongly recommend calling a trusted professional for all of your electrical needs. Look for things like positive reviews, awards, BBB A+ business ratings, and years in business, and, of course, proper and updated Electrician licensing.
