The electrical panel in your home is crucial to the safety and function of your entire electrical system. This enclosure is located where the power line enters your home. Inside the box, the single power line is broken down into various circuits that will provide power to your home’s different rooms and appliances.
Each of these smaller circuits has a breaker that adds to your home’s safety by monitoring the amount of power in the circuit. If the power spikes or surges, the breaker opens or trips to stop the excess power flow through the electrical wiring. The tripped breaker prevents overloading the wire or other components and starting an electrical fire. The significance of an electrical panel is that if it fails, there could be electrical hazards throughout your home.
Like most of the fixtures and components of your home, electrical panels do wear out. But the alarming part is that there might be no visible signs that the unit is not working correctly. The safety of the breakers and their ability to protect your home will decline over years of reliable service. To ensure the safety of your loved ones and home, regular electrical inspections by the seasoned experts at BnO Electrical Solutions are critical.
