Main Panel Safety Inspection

An electrical circuit breaker, also known as the main electrical panel is the main distribution point of power to the electrical circuits in your home. It usually provides between 100 and 200 amps of power to your home. When power is distributed from the utility company, it runs through an electrical meter, an electrical disconnect and subsequently to the main breaker on your electrical panel. The main breaker will be marked as this is what you need to switch off or disconnect in case of any electrical emergency to prevent fire or damage.

Always remember that a 100amp supply is the minimum size service that is required for a new home. Older homes might have been equipped with only 60 amps but the demand for power has increased and this 60amp supply is no longer sufficient.

Although circuit breakers and panels will be installed by professionals, it is always a good idea to be in the know of how to inspect these panels and breakers in your home on a regular basis. This information also comes in handy if you need to cut power to your home in case of emergency.
