If you’re like most of us here in the U.S., your home has electricity.

Specializing in electrical installation of all shapes and sizes, including new installation of electrical panels and electrical panel upgrade, our team will keep your home’s electrical system safe and ensure you’re never left sitting in the dark.

How Electrical Panels Work

The primary power line to your home connects from your home to a power meter on the outside of your home. From there, the line runs directly to the electrical panel. While the location of the electrical panel varies, it’s generally in the garage, mudroom, basement, or a closet. Inside the electrical panel, you’ll find several switches. These switches are all circuit breakers, which serve to break the power from the main line up into smaller segments and to distribute that power to the various outlets in your home. While electrical panels generally run without any attention, warning signs include the following:

  • Flickering lights
  • Appliances that shut off randomly
  • Humming
  • Shocks

If you notice any of the above signs, we can help. Ready to learn more? Contact us at: (804) 991-4400
