Denver Electrical Panels
Your Denver electrical panel is the heart of your electrical system. Without it, your several devices, lights, and other electrical components would be beyond useless. In other words, they’re incredibly important. Additionally, they’re quite complicated and dangerous pieces of equipment. They’re so dangerous and intricate that you should always leave any repair or replacement jobs to the professionals. Fortunately, the expert electricians here at Brothers Plumbing Heating Electric are here to help! Contact our team of electrical panel professionals at the first sign of any electrical panel problems. Remember, the faster you get an electrical panel problem taken care of, the less likely it’ll exacerbate into something far worse.
What’s Inside Your Electrical Panel in Denver?
We’ve already discussed the importance of your electrical panel, but that begs the question: what’s inside it? Well, inside your box is a set of circuit breakers (they look like switches) and wires. The wires start from the main power supply, head through the breakers, and then go out to your various electrical circuits. Each electrical circuit serves certain areas of your home and provides them with surge protection. Additionally, there will be one large breaker switch (typically at the top of the panel) called the main circuit breaker. It controls the flow of power to the entire electrical panel. Deeper inside your breaker box, you’ll find two hot bus bars, a neutral bus bar, and a ground bus bar. However, those components are somewhat technical, and we won’t bore you with the details here.

How Do You Know If Your Denver Electric Panel Has a Bad or Inadequate Circuit?
Electrical panels contain circuit breakers designed to protect your electronic equipment and appliances from damage. When one of your home electrical circuits draws more power than intended, your breaker shuts off power to that circuit, saving your equipment from damage. However, when those circuit breakers go bad, they no longer protect your home as they should. Unfortunately, it can be quite challenging to detect a bad circuit unless, however, you know what to look out for. To help you identify electrical panel problems, our team of Denver breaker board professionals has put together the following list:
- The breaker trips repeatedly
- A circuit breaker won’t reset
- You smell burning wires/plastic or see smoke coming from the panel
- Wires inside the panel look frayed, roasted, or otherwise compromised
- You hear sizzling or popping noises coming from the breaker box
- Your breakers or breaker box is hot to the touch
If you’ve detected any of the previously mentioned Denver circuit breaker problems, then please don’t hesitate to contact our team of experts right away. For more troubleshooting instructions, check out the video below:
