The electrical panel is the point from which electricity is distributed throughout the home or business. In addition, the electrical panel also provides protection against the dangerously high levels of electricity that is being delivered to the home.
Each circuit is protected by a circuit breaker, or fuse in older homes. When a problem occurs with the electrical current such as a short, or the current reaches an unsafe level as in an overloaded circuit, the breakers are designed to turn off, which cuts off the electrical current to the affected circuit. This helps to prevent overheating, fire and potential shock.
