ELECTRICAL PANEL FAQs
- When is an electrical panel overloaded?
When all of the active circuits' combined current draw exceeds the main breaker's rating, the electrical panel is overloaded. If you have a 150-amp service, you are not allowed to use more than 150 amps, roughly 10 15-amp circuits, or one 50-amp circuit plus roughly seven 15-amp circuits. If you frequently reach or surpass that rating, it might be time to think about upgrading your panel.
- Where is the electrical panel located in a house?
In most homes, the electrical panel is placed in a secure, low-traffic area, like the basement, a utility room, or an attached garage. It is a good idea to keep the area around the electrical panel clear and to avoid blocking it wherever it is located so that it can be easily accessed in case of an emergency or blackout.
- What causes a hum in an electrical panel?
A loose connection or a defective breaker may be to blame for a humming or buzzing sound coming from an electrical panel. For electrical repairs in either scenario, it's critical to call an electrician right away. For urgent electrical repairs, Montani Mechanical Group is open every day of the year, whenever you need us.
- When a breaker trips, how can I tell?
Most breakers switch to a position halfway between on and off when they trip, and some may illuminate a red or orange indicator. Turning off and back on the breaker will reset it. It might be time to add a circuit, upgrade to a 20-amp circuit, or replace a broken breaker if your breakers trip more frequently than once per week. Call our team at Montani Mechanical Group for assistance.
- Why will my breaker not reset?
A GFCI may have tripped in the circuit or the breaker itself may be defective if the power in a circuit remains off after a breaker has been reset. As one GFCI outlet may also protect downstream outlets, press the RESET button on all the GFCI outlets in your home. Contact our team at Montani Mechanical Group for a breaker replacement if the power does not turn on after doing so.
