The Importance of Having an Electrical Panel Directory
The electrical panel in every house divides power from the electrical grid among the home’s various circuits. With only a few rare exceptions, modern electrical panels still use fuses instead of circuit breakers to control electrical flow. It is crucial to have a written electrical panel directory that specifies what each circuit supplies power to, regardless of whether an electrical panel uses fuses or breakers. An expert electrician is always available to assist with setting up the electrical panel directory in your home, either as a stand-alone task or as an addition to any other work we perform on your property.
Why Get an Electrical Panel Directory?
There are various incentives to get a panel directory written out for your home. Some reasons include the following:
Saving Yourself Time and Hassle
In the event of a blown breaker or power outage, having an accurate and current electrical panel directory can help you easily find your way around your home’s electrical circuit. You will be forced to flip breakers blindly while someone yells at you from another room to tell you when you’ve found the right circuit if you don’t have an easy-to-read panel directory.
Making it Easier to Work on Your Home
Professionals can work in your home more easily, thanks to panel directories. A panel directory can reduce the workload when it is necessary to turn off power to a circuit, even though it is not always necessary to do so to work on it.
Improve Your Home’s Safety
A panel directory is an added convenience, but it can protect your home and loved ones from danger in an emergency. A panel upgrade can significantly speed up the time to turn off the power if a circuit or appliance needs to be safely and quickly shut off due to failure.
