Electrical Panel Safety

The electrical panel is the heart of the home’s electrical system. Operating like a human body would operate, circuits and wires distribute and receive electricity throughout the home like veins and arteries would carry blood throughout the human body. Just as blood keeps the body alive, electricity keeps your home alive, and without a properly functioning panel, you could be putting your family and home at risk from potential hazards.

When a circuit breaker gets overloaded and overheats, the breaker is supposed to trip. This essentially shuts the breaker off to prevent a fire.Many Electric panels and breakers can operate properly for years. But if and when they do malfunction, a disaster could occur. However, if that electrical panel fails to trip the panel could overheat and catch fire, causing serious harm to your home and family.How can Black Hills Inc Help?If you are worried that you may have an outdated electrical panel in your home or have not had your panel inspected recently, you owe it to yourself and your family to contact us (360) 558-3242 today and received your free inspection.
