What is a Breaker Box?
While some people may refer to circuit breakers as breaker boxes, this is actually not quite right. A breaker box, or breaker panel, is a component in your electrical system which breaks up the electrical feed servicing your home into separate circuits. The circuit breaker itself is a device within this panel which regulates the amount of amperes sent throughout your electrical wiring. These breakers come in different sizes, with some appliances requiring a larger circuit breaker in order to handle the amount of electricity that these appliances require in order to function. When you open your breaker box, you will see the individual breaker switches which you may need to reset from time to time.
What Purpose Do Circuit Breakers Serve?
We’ve described above that circuit breakers regulate the amps running through the electrical wiring in your home. This is a vital safety feature which can protect your electronics and appliances, as well as your wiring and your personal safety itself. When a power surge occurs, the circuit breaker servicing that particular circuit in your electrical system will trip. This means that it turns from the on position to off. You will have to open up your breaker box in order to reset the circuit. Modern circuit breakers require only the flip of a switch to do so, making them much safer and more convenient than older fuse boxes.
Hire a Professional to Install and Service Your Electrical Panel
We hope that this goes without saying, but any electrical panel services that you may need, from upgrading your old fuse box to a modern electrical panel, or any repairs that your existing electrical panel may require, must be completed by a qualified electrician. The risk of electric shocks or even of electrocution, as well as damage to your electrical system or the devices wired into it, is just too high for a novice to attempt to service an electrical panel. Your electrical system is in use each and every day, and you just cannot afford to leave something as vital to its successful operation as your electrical panel is in the hands of an unqualified individual.
