How Important is a Good Electrical Panel?

The most valuable electrical unit in your home is the electrical panel. It must be working properly to distribute the required power to each item.

What Happens when Panels Malfunction?

Malfunctioning panels are quite dangerous. Among the problems they cause, these three stand out:

  • Panels that fail to operate properly can overheat and catch fire.
  • Circuits can short out, tripping the circuit breakers and stopping the flow of electricity in your home.
  • High levels of current can be generated without tripping the circuit breakers, making it possible for anyone in the room to receive an electric shock.
