24/7 Reliable Electricians
An electrical panel is where all the breaker switches are located. There are 2 types of switch in the control panel of the home.
1. Main Switch
2. Individual switch
Main Switch: Main switch controls the power of the entire house. It distributes current to the other individual switches. This is a high power rating switch.
Individual switch: This switch provides power to the particular area or room and has a limited number of loads so, low power rating switch will work here. Electrician will analyze your requirement and according to the load he/ she will install switches for each room.
Each circuit breaker switch is designed to trip when the circuit is overloaded. This is the primary safety device for controlling the short circuit. If this device does not work, there could be big issue. Each switch is designed to carry a certain amount of power according to the rating on them. If it carries too much, the wires could overheat and possibly catch the fire.
Tv, Lights, etc needs 120 volts and big appliances such as a stove, electric dryer needs 240 volts. When the circuit breaker switch trips, just reset it. Whereas in older homes with fuses, the fuse is damaged once due to overload you need to replace it.
