How Does an Electrical Panel Work?
The electrical panel, also called the breaker box, handles all electrical circuit breakers in your home. It’s essentially the powerhouse for your home’s electricity. Your electrical panel is hardwired and very dangerous. Unless you are a licensed and trained electrician, you should not tinker with it in hopes of figuring it out yourself when something with your electricity goes amiss. Our electric panel upgrade electricians at Teays Valley Service Experts all go through extensive training, and all are certified, licensed and insured.
Signs Your Electrical Panel Needs Service:
- You have lots of extension cords in your home.
- Your panel box is generating odd noises.
- Your main breaker panel is hot to the touch.
- Your lights often flicker.
- Your lights dim when you switch on certain plug-in appliances.
- Your power bills are higher than normal.
- Your circuit breakers keep tripping.
Are you constantly “blowing fuses” in your home? If are using a fuse panel, it’s possible that your insurance company doesn’t like you very much. When your fused wiring—which is wired through the walls in your home—becomes overworked, there’s a good chance that wiring will probably overheat. And when wires overheat, they can start fires. We believe that everyone should install a circuit breaker panel system in their home to ensure safety.
If your panel gets too hot, it can ruin the main lugs and conductors. Your problem could be as straightforward as outdated technology, especially if it was cheaply built or inadequately installed. Or it’s possible you have a panel that has been corrupted or contaminated by other elements in your home. In any case, electric panel concerns should be assessed and addressed as soon as possible.
