What is a circuit breaker panel?
An electrical panel helps delivery electricity to the appliances in your home. The power provided from your utility company flows through the panel and branches out in order to properly distribute the electricity throughout your home. The panel also helps keep your home safer by shorting out before a fire is started.
The disadvantages of an old fuse box.
- Consistent blown fuses
- Appliances are not running at full power
- Having to turn off one appliance to use another
- Damaged electrical wires
- Possible flickering lights
- Potential of box being defective, which may fail to trip. This could lead to possible overheating, shocks or fire
Reasons you should consider a new electrical panel
- A home renovation / addition
- Addition of multiple new appliances
- Addition of new/more outlets to your home
- Meeting homeowners insurance requirements
