Electrician in Lexington, Winchester, Richmond, Georgetown, KY
 
When you open up the door on your electrical panel cover is each breaker labeled as to what it controls?  If I asked you to turn off only your microwave circuit would it be a 2 minute task or a 30 minute task?  Not only is it important for safety reasons to have a properly labeled panel, it's also required as part of the National Electrical Code.  Does your panel more so resemble the one on the left or the right? 
The panel on the left is a properly labeled panel. Each breaker has a sticker next to that in good handwriting has the circuit listed that corresponds to the breaker.  The panel on the right has stickers missing, a few different colors of sharpie and circuits scratched off and wrote over.  In an emergency situation you could have a breaker turned off very quickly by going through the circuits on the left panel.  A homeowner may be forced to turn off the main breaker in an emergency situation where the panel isn't properly labeled such as on the right.  In this case the homeowner is left without power until an electrician can arrive on scene and make repairs. 

It's very rare as an electrician to be working in someone's Lexington home with a properly labeled panel unless it is a new home or the service has been recently updated.  It's not a long procedure to audit a panel and properly label it.  A clean, labeled panel can also make a possible buyer feel safer about your houses electrical system.  It will also make future work on the electrical and HVAC systems much easier and quicker.

The safe and effective utilization of electricity in the home is important for you and your family safety. I find a lot of people using aging or faulty electrical appliances, including a damaged cord. If you are using any certain appliances replace them with any modern plugs or dispose that appliance. Most people try to repair defective electrical appliances and wiring by themselves. But I believe it is safer to <a href="http://www.theshockdoctors.ca/electrician-services/electrical-troubleshooting/">agree with any licensed electrician or repairmen</a> to get along.

It is very important that we label every thing in the house that involves electricity. It avoid unnecessary accidents in the future. A lot of fires during summer started with faulty electrical system. Everyone should go back to basic nowadays. There is too much technology that requires electricity. Old houses should be equipped to handle modern equipment.

Thank you for sharing this useful information with us, I am working in Gaslicht Company as a technician. To give yourself a clear idea of how electrical panel wiring impacts electric distribution in your home, you have to understand first how electric circuits work. Electricity is not just about meter readings; it is more about how electricity is distributed to lights and other electrical circuits you have in your home.

This is a very helpful tips. Thank you for sharing your advises on electrical panel. The circuit breaker is one of the most important safety mechanisms in your home. Whenever electrical wiring has too much current flowing through it, the circuit breakers cut the power until somebody can fix the problem. Most electrical codes now require clear labelling of circuit breakers in new homes and that usually includes a directory of each circuit and what it powers.

A meat grinder, also known as a meat processor, is pretty self explanatory but for the masses, it is a kitchen appliance which is used for grinding, mixing or fine mincing of raw meat. Most people don't really have a need for this kitchen appliance as minced meat is easily available in the market.

To thoroughly map or label every circuit in your home will take up more space than is available on your home electrical panel itself. On the other hand, you don't want to keep the record you will make away from the panel (in a notebook or in a computer), because the next homeowner (or anyone servicing your system) may be deprived of your hard-found data.
