ELECTRICAL PANEL TUNE-UP

You should schedule a panel tune-up if you have had water leaks in the vicinity of your panel. Or if you think there may be improper wiring or your panel is being under powered or crowded.

These are the steps included in our electrical panel tune-up:

  1. Apply antioxidant to main electrical wires.
  2. Install duct seal
  3. Apply (spray) anti-corrosion to breaker and neutral/ground wires
  4. Tighten all loose wire (never over tighten screws).

WHAT IS A CIRCUIT BREAKER?

The circuit breaker is an essential device in the modern world, and one of the most important safety mechanisms in your home. Whenever electrical wiring in a building has too much current flowing through it, these simple machines cut the power until somebody can fix the problem. Without circuit breakers (or the alternative, fuses), household electricity would be impractical because of the potential for fires and other mayhem resulting from simple wiring problems and equipment failures.

The circuit breaker’s job is to cut off the circuit whenever the current jumps above a safe level.

All the wiring in a house runs through a central circuit breaker panel (or fuse box panel), usually in the basement or a closet. A typical central panel includes about a dozen circuit breaker switches leading to various circuits in the house. One circuit might include all the outlets in the living room, and another might include all the downstairs lighting. Larger appliances, such as a central air conditioning system or a refrigerator, are typically on their own circuit. Please call Genesis Electrical if you are experiencing a problem with your breaker panel. 317-708-7000 or 219-663-6264.
