What Is the Electrical Panel & How Will It Make Your Electrical System Safer & More Secure?

The Electrical panel is the heart of your entire home's electrical system. How is this possible? Think of the functions of the most important organ in your body — the heart. The heart pumps constantly to keep blood traveling through the body. With the help of the veins and arteries, blood is carried out to other organs and limbs, keeping you alive.

How is this relevant to your home's electrical panel? The panel is in charge of providing power to your house. With the help of circuits and wires, electricity is carried throughout your home, therefore keeping all of your electrical devices alive. These include televisions, computers, refrigerators, and lights.

Is Your Electrical Panel Safe & Secure?

Today's homes should have at least 150 amps. Unfortunately, millions of homes today are more than 40 years old and have panels that are no more than 60 amps. These outdated panels are often not capable of safely handling the demands of today's society. The same way your heart needs regular attention to avoid complications, your panel also needs regular maintenance to keep it operating properly.

Experts say that today's electrical panels function properly and protect homes for 30 years or more! Want more information about panels? Visit Is My Panel Safe?

Did You Know?

More than 50% of all homes may have electrical panels that cannot support their needs. This is because many homes were built during or before the 1970s — before advanced technology in electric systems was invented. Obsolete electrical panels are susceptible to malfunction, which leads to possible shock and fire risks. Many of these obsolete panels have been known to operate properly for years, but if and when they do malfunction, a disaster could occur.

Upgrading Your Main Electrical Service

Your main electrical service consists of several major components that are necessary to supply your home with electricity from your power company. They consist of the weatherhead and mast, service entrance conductors, and main circuit breaker, as well as your branch circuit breakers and utility company's electric meter.

Your main electrical service needs to be engineered as a unit to work perfectly in tune with your home's power demands. The entire main electrical service is a "complete system" and designed for high efficiency with your safety in mind. We only use the best materials and combine this with professional installations that are done right the first time, every time. Simply put, you should have the best main electrical service for your home.
