Everyone has seen an electrical panel, but do we all know how it works? This panel is a very important part of any home, so we have put together a little information for you to let you know what a panel does.

A simple single circuit breaker works by controlling the electrical current that flows through your household. Each individual circuit controls the electrical current that flows to different parts of your property, making sure a power surge, which is a brief surge in your home’s electrical current or overload does not completely destroy your appliances and electrical items.  A surge happens when larger appliances turn on or lighting strikes near your location, while an overload happens when more power travels through a circuit then it is set to handle. When these issues happen, the switch will break the circuit to stop issues like a fire. As you can see, having an operational circuit breaker is crucial to your needs.
