electrical panel

It’s important to know the ins and outs of your breaker box before you attempt to fix an electrical issue in your home. Any wrong could move could potentially lead to a dangerous and sometimes fatal situation, which is why we always recommend calling on the job for a highly trained and skilled electrician. Still, knowing your way around your electrical panel can be helpful.

When you open the breaker box you will find that there are a row of switches. These switches correspond to a specific circuit in your living area. They should be labeled to read which appliance or room they control. If they are not labeled, you can begin the process by switching all circuits off and testing each switch by bringing an electrical device to see which area has power.

Too much electricity could cause a circuit breaker to trip. When this happens, all you have to do is find the switch that is being affected and turn it off for a couple of seconds. Once switched back, your electricity should start to run smoothly again.If you are still having issues with your electricity, call on us so we can perform the job safely.
