- What Does an Electrical Panel do?
You probably know where the panel box is in your home, but do you know what it does? Most often a panel box is grey, and located in a utility room, basement, closet or garage. If you open the box, you’ll notice rows of switches. The panel box has a very important job. It distributes the power from the main line from your electric company and distributes it into small branch lines to power different areas and appliances in your home. Each switch, or sometimes referred to as breaker, can handle so many amps of power before it is tripped. When there is too much demand, the breaker is tripped, which is a good thing. This is a safety mechanism to prevent the wires from getting over heated and causing damage.
- Electrical Panel Concerns
There are many signs that could be a good indicator that your panel box should be looked at by a professional. If you have a 100-amp electrical service but is showing signs that it can’t keep up with demand of your home’s appliances, or if you hear a crackling noise or see corrosion. If your panel box was installed in the 1980s it is crucial to have it checked. The components could be worn and unsafe or even recalled due to safety concerns. Some brands that have been deemed unsafe or defective are Federal Pacific Electrical Panels and Zinsco Electrical Panels.
- Thinking of Remodeling?
If you are considering a renovation or adding an addition, it may be time to consider a new electrical panel. A properly operating panel box that keeps up with the electrical demand of your home is crucial to keep your family safe.
