A safe and functional electrical panel is the key to receiving electricity in your home. This component is key to all electrical function in your home and as such, should be inspected for safety and functionality regularly.

The function of an electrical panel is to take the electricity from your electric company and distribute it adequately and properly throughout your home. The breakers in the panel or box regulate the electricity to ensure that your electrical wires are not overloaded.

Outside of regular inspection and maintenance by a licensed electrician, what else do you need to know about your electrical panel?  There are a few brands of electrical panels that require immediate attention should your home have them. This includes the Sylvania panel. These panels are known to malfunction and do not properly break if your panel is overloaded, leading to increased risk of electrical fire in your Clearwater, Florida home.

If your home is equipped with a Sylvania panel, it is vital that you contact a licensed electrician to replace it as soon as possible. If you’re not sure if your panel is a Sylvania panel, a licensed electrician can help. They can inspect the panel to determine if it’s impacted. You should never take on these types of projects alone and without a licensed professional, so it’s important to contact an electrician.
