Your electrical panel is the main distribution point for electrical current to your entire house. Once electricity is carried beyond your meter, it must be distributed to lights, receptacles and appliances. The main electrical panel is attached between the electric meter and the wall outlets inside your home, and if you have an older home it may be time for an upgrade!
There is a high probability that you have a builder’s grade aluminum based panel box in your home. In less technical terms, this means that the copper wiring that goes from the Panel Box through your home is connected to aluminum wiring inside your panel box. This situation is inherently unsafe and can cause electrical fires.
If you have any doubt, or are unsure of what type of electrical panel you h
ave in your home, it is essential that you give us a call to come by to check it out.
