An interior electrical circuit breaker panel installed within the living space of a home is common in nearly all new home construction and is also found in homes dating as far back as the beginning of residential electrical wiring. Installing an electrical panel within the living space of a home has many benefits.
If all wiring is installed properly, which should be the case in any new construction application, then there is no need to worry about having your electrical panels inspected or serviced by an electrician for at least ten to twenty years from the year the home was built.
The negative side effects of having an interior electrical panel are somewhat minimal.
All electrical circuit breaker panels should be serviced and inspected every ten to twenty years for corrosion and loose terminations by a licensed and reputable electrical service or contracting company. Electrical fires usually grow over time so if you see any abnormalities in your electrical system you should be alarmed and cautious and call In Phaze Electric. One should not be careless with flickering lights or outlets in their home or business. Do not hesitate, give us a call right away.
As the owner of In Phaze Electric I have seen electrical fires in many ways and forms, I have seen a house burn to nothing but ash due to an electrical fire. Most house fires are caused by faulty electrical wiring or installation during the construction of the home or at any time of electrical service or repair done to the home by an electrician. Our priority at In Phaze Electric is to have safety as our number one priority. I have encouraged our Service Managers to provide a good and thorough electrical inspection of every customer’s home or business no matter what the electrical service call is regarding. Our electricians take their job seriously and we do our best to be the most honest and informative electrical service provider in Central Florida.
Keep in mind that most electrical panels are built with similar requirements and standards and are somewhat alike but some panels like Square D QO or Cutler-Hammer CH series breakers are known to be of better quality. These panels and style of breakers typically cost a little more but take note that we typically see a longer life span of the electrical panel and breakers over time when inspecting these types of electrical panels.
