MS Electric specializes in electrical service upgrades. Electrical panels can be identified as a painted or gray metal box. They are typically mounted on the wall of your home in an easily accessible area such as a utility room, laundry room, garage, basement, or closet. Your electrical panel helps provide electricity to the much-loved and well-used gadgets and appliances throughout your home. Power from your utility company flows into your home through this panel, where it branches out into major electrical branches, dwindling into smaller branches in order to distribute power. A properly functioning electrical panel is essential to the safety of your family and your home.The consequences for not doing it right can be serious. Faulty wiring is the leading cause of residential fires.

 

Just because you’re not living in a turn-of-the-century home doesn’t mean your panel is safe…

Today’s new electrical panels are well-designed and safe, however homes with panels installed as recently as the 1980s may contain components now known to have deteriorated, becoming unsafe with age and posing safety issues. If you home uses any of these components, have a new electrical panel installed immediately.
