Houston Electrical Panels 101:

The Parts and Purpose of Your Home’s Electrical Panel

Circuit BreakersLevers appearing in parallel down the center of the box. Used to shut off power to selective sections of the house or specific major appliances.

Neutral BusbarLooks similar to busbars, help maintain a safe voltage for the panel.
Open CircuitsA discontinuous circuit that prevents electricity flow, often caused by a cut wire or a blown fuse.

Your home’s electrical panel - also sometimes referred to as a circuit panel- consists of a variety of standardized parts that all work together to keep the lights on at your home and provide power to appliances and electrical devices plugged into your home’s electrical outlets. You can think of it as the nervous system of your home, relaying signals from switches to devices and outlets.

Houston Electrical Panel Safety:

How to Take Precaution and Avoid Disaster

Live wires, electrical outlets, and electrical panels can all injure or even kill humans if handled improperly.

If you suspect a problem with your home’s electrical panel, call John Moore for support as soon as possible. While we always encourage our customers to call the electrical company and emergency responders first if you notice sparks, smoke, or suspect an electrical fire, it is important to follow up with a professional Houston electrical panel safety specialist to repair and replace any damaged electrical panel components once crisis has been averted.

Your home’s electrical system will not function at all without a working electrical panel, and short-term solutions to get your electricity back up and running could place strain on your home’s electrical system and cause future shortage, surges, or a disruption of service. Sometimes, short term workarounds can even increase the risk of fire.

Old Electrical Panels

Over time, older electrical panels can lead to trouble as many are configured to never shut off, even if a circuit breaker is overloaded.

When an electrical panel continues to provide electricity in such cases, it can eventually lead to smoking panels, start a fire, and destroy any electronics allowed to pull too much power from the panel. Want to know if your panel is still safe for use? Check out ismypanelsafe.com. If you see your electrical panel on the list of discontinued or unsafe panels, we highly recommend that you call John Moore to have one of our electricians  replace your old electrical panel with a newer, safer, and more efficient model.

Pest Issues

Aside from aging panels, a variety of other problems can spell trouble for your home’s electrical system.

Rodents like rats and mice are known to nibble on wires, and pests that make it inside of your electrical panel can electrocute themselves and create corrosion within the panel box. If we find that pests and rodents are interfering with your homes electrical system, we will refer pest control to take care of them first. Electrical surges can also limit the life of your electrical panel, and over time, parts can work themselves loose, requiring breaker panel replacement in Houston to re-tighten them.

How will you know when something goes wrong with your electrical panel? It’s the first place most Houston breaker panels specialists start when called out for a power outage, and if there’s a fire or sparking electronics, there’s a good chance that your electrical panel may be involved somehow as well. As with all electrical problems, it is important that you contact a licensed electrician to inspect your electrical panel and the rest of your home’s electrical system rather than trying to fix the problem yourself.
