What is an Electrical Panel?
Your main electrical panel is typically a large gray box that is located in your garage or basement and is filled a series of switches. Those switches are called your breakers, and when they "trip," it will cause a power outage until the switch is turned back on. If your breakers are tripping repeatedly or frequently, it can mean that your panel is not equipped to handle the amount of electricity you're using, which can be very unsafe.
If you've noticed your breakers are frequently tripping, call NW Electricians Today to have your electrical panel inspected as soon as possible.
