The electrical panel is the heart of any electrical system. It distributes power coming into your home through circuits. Each circuit is protected by a breaker. Breakers trip when a circuit draws too much power.
It is important that the breaker be the right size for the circuit it protects. Hot, buzzing, or constantly tripping breakers are signs of trouble in your panel. It is important to maintain and check your electrical panel regularly to prevent major damage. IV Electric performs panel checks on every service call and provides maintenance. We look for signs of wear and tighten all your connections.
Is your panel overloaded? The modern home is full of high-tech and high-power electronics and appliances that the original home builder may not have anticipated. Subsequently, many older homes with original panels are overloaded and present a major fire risk. Illuminated Visions Electric uses a special meter to test every questionable panel and heat guns to check panel temperatures. Overloaded panels generate heat before they arc, burn or short circuit, which helps us catch problems before anything becomes dangerous and costly.
