Frequently Asked Questions About Electrical Panels
When is an electrical panel overloaded?
An overloaded electrical panel occurs when the total current draw of all the circuits in use exceeds the rating of the main breaker. If you have 150-amp service, you cannot exceed 150 amps, about ten 15-amp circuits, or one 50-amp circuit plus about seven 15-amp circuits. If you regularly get close to or exceed that rating, it may be time to consider a panel upgrade.
Where is the electrical panel in a house?
The electrical panel is located in a safe, low-traffic area in most homes, such as the basement, a utility room, or an attached garage. No matter where it is located, it is a good idea not to block the electrical panel and keep the area around it clear for easy access in a blackout or an emergency.
Why would an electrical panel hum?
A humming or buzzing sound in an electrical panel can be caused by a loose connection or a faulty breaker. In either case, it is crucial to call an electrician as soon as possible for electrical repairs. At Blind & Sons, we are available whenever you need us, 24-hours a day, for emergency electrical repairs.
How do I tell if a breaker has tripped?
When they trip, most breakers will switch to a position about halfway between on and off, and some may show a red or orange indicator. To reset the breaker, turn it off, then back on. If you have breakers that frequently trip, more than once a week or so, it may be time to contact our team at Blind & Sons to add a circuit, upgrade to a 20-amp circuit, or replace a faulty breaker.
Why won’t my breaker reset?
If the power in a circuit does not turn on after a breaker is reset, the breaker itself may be faulty, or there may be a tripped GFCI in the circuit. Press the “Reset” button on all the GFCI outlets in your home, as one GFCI outlet may also protect downstream outlets. If the power still does not come on, reach out to our team at Blind & Sons for a breaker replacement.
