The electrical control panel, or breaker box, is the heart of your electrical system. It is the home to the system’s main safety devices, the circuit breakers, which protect each circuit from overloads and other hazards. Surprisingly, an electrical control panel is a simple system. Because of this it can be compromised by any number of problems including faulty installation, weather wear, sunlight damage and obsolescence (getting older over time). All problems with a service panel should be diagnosed and remedied by a qualified electrician. Common hazards which may indicate you need electrical panel repair include:
- Damaged Service Cables
- Excess Moisture
- Improper Wiring
- Underpowered or Overcrowded Panel
- Aging Panel
