How Does an Electrical Panel Work?
The electrical panel, also called the breaker box, takes care of all electrical circuit breakers in your home. It’s essentially the powerhouse for your home’s power system. Your electrical panel is hardwired and extremely dangerous. Unless you are a licensed and trained electrician, you should not experiment with it in hopes of figuring it out yourself when something with your electricity goes awry. Our electric panel upgrade electricians at A-Plus Service Experts all go through extensive schooling, and all are certified, licensed and insured.
Signs Your Electrical Panel Needs Service:
- You have a lot of extension cords in your home.
- Your panel box is making 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 your home still has 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 may start fires. We believe that everyone should get a circuit breaker panel system in their home to ensure safety.
If your panel overheats, it can wreck the main lugs and conductors. Your problem could be as simple as outdated technology, especially if it was cheaply built or poorly installed. Or maybe you have a panel that has been damaged or contaminated by other elements in your home. In any case, electric panel issues should be assessed and addressed as soon as possible.
