What is an electrical panel?

An electrical panel is a device that houses circuit breakers and fuses in one place. The panel protects your home from electrical fires by monitoring the flow of electricity through your house and shutting off any circuits that become overloaded or shorted out. It’s important that you make sure yours is installed properly and up to code. The panel is typically located in an area that is easy to reach and maintain, such as a utility room or garage. When you purchase a new home, your electrical panel will be pre-wired with the necessary wiring and components for you to hook up all of your appliances. However, if you are putting in some new fixtures or updating your current electrical system, it’s important to hire a professional electrician to do the work. This is because it’s not safe to try and rewire your electrical panel on your own, and doing so could result in serious injury or even death. An electrician will be able to ensure that your home is protected, as well as make sure that the wiring throughout your home is up to code and safe for both you and your family members.

How does an electrical panel work?

A single breaker controls the electrical current that travels to a specific outlet and is designed to safeguard your home from power surges and current oversupply. A surge occurs when your house's electrical current rises suddenly. It happens when large appliances, such as refrigerators or air conditioners, switch on or when there are nearby lightning strikes. When more amperage flows across a circuit than it is designed to handle, you have an overload. For example, a wire that is only designed to handle 15 amps should have a 15-amp breaker. If the wire is connected to a 20-amp breaker, 20 amps may travel over a wire that was designed to handle only 15 amps. The primary objective of breakers is to fail safely and avoid accidents, such as fires. If the current running through one of the breakers goes above a certain level, the switch will automatically disconnect the circuit (flip to the “off” position) and safeguard anything past that switch. When it's in the “on” setting, power is supplied to the outlet. However, if it has been turned off manually or there has been a current overload or a power surge, then it will be in off mode. It's crucial that your breakers are labeled so you can identify which circuits connect to each outlet, and avoid confusion if a breaker trips. Usually, the builder or electrician will label the panel for you, but you can also do it yourself as soon as you move in. Labels for breakers and fuses should be placed next to the switches or on the interior of the panels' covers. The labels may represent the outlets (dishwasher, stove, etc.) that are connected to them or the outlet's actual position (kitchen, living room, etc.).


Did you know that every year, around 200 people die from household electrocutions? Power travels from the electrical panel, through energized wires to devices or outlets, and then returns to the panel along neutral wires. If a person touches both a hot conductor and a neutral one at the same time, current will course through their body and cause electrocution. In order to prevent electrocution, you need to make sure that your electrical system is safe. If you’re not sure how to do this on your own, contact a certified electrician like Dash Electric.
