Electrical panels are a part of your home that you don’t see every day. You plug electronics in, turn lights on, and even change light bulbs, but a typical homeowner does not necessarily need to look at the electrical panel unless something does not turn on. The electrical panel is the heart of your electrical system and controls the electricity that runs through your home. It is important to keep it healthy and up-to-date in order to keep your home safe and functioning properly.
Electricity flows from your city source to the power lines and then into you home via the electrical panel. The panel controls the flow of electricity, initiating and terminating your home’s circuits. The fuses or breakers automatically shut down the current in the event of a power surge or short circuit. This prevents wires from overheating significantly reducing the potential for an electrical fire in your home.
If you have an outdated electrical panel in your home and you need to change the fuse or add a new breaker, chances are that the original manufacturer is no longer producing it. Look at your breaker box or electrical panel to determine if it is out-of-date or no longer being supported by the manufacture. These are examples of outdated panels:
Your electrical panel, in many ways, is the heart of your home, and just like your heart it needs proper attention and checkups to be sure that it is healthy and running smoothly. If you are unsure about your electrical panel’s health or your safety, call Jack Lehr to come out and give it a checkup. The reliable and efficient electricians at Jack Lehr are certified and licensed and can help you to update the electrical panel in your home!
