What Is an Electric Panel?
Of all the parts of your home electrical system, the electrical panel is the most important. All outside electricity enters here, where it’s distributed to each individual circuit. The panel also monitors electric currents. If a current is too strong, a breaker panel can cut the power to stop an overload, which avoids further damage to your electrical system, appliances, and electronic devices. The two forms of electrical panel components include:
If you have a newer, updated home in Orange County, a circuit breaker is most likely installed. A breaker trips if a power surge is detected to stop an overload or short circuit. It is easily reset by flipping a switch in the breaker box, so no parts need to be replaced.
Each fuse is screwed into the electrical panel and, when the current is too strong or there’s a power surge, the fuse will blow. The fuse must then be replaced to restore power. Fuses tend to be overly sensitive, yet they are inexpensive and easy to replace.
Do You Need Electrical Panel Repair or an Upgrade?
Our Orange County electrician can perform electric panel repairs if the cables serving your electrical panel are damaged. Insulation on the service-entrance cable can wear out, or you may have loose cables or missing clamps or anchors. If you have any of these issues, they can be easily fixed. Improper wiring can be corrected as well.
If there’s excess moisture, a nearby water leak, the box looks rusty or chalky, or metal parts and wiring are corroded, replacement is the best option. If your panel is outdated, now is the perfect time for an upgrade. Other reasons to consider an electrical panel upgrade in Orange County include:
Breakers not tripping when they should.
Breakers falling out or visibly damaged.
The panel is overcrowded.
You see arcing, or electrical sparks.
The lights are flickering.
You hear sizzling from the panel.
Frequent electrical surges and outages.
If you don’t have one, a 200-amp panel can address overload problems. It is designed to handle a higher power load, especially in homes with updated appliances and electronic devices. An upgrade can reduce safety risks, qualify you for insurance incentives, and increase home resale value.
