Now, what is it with the electrical panel that you have to trust it only to the experts? It’s a central point which connects all the wires from outside your house to the wires inside. It’s where the electric service provider supplies electricity to your home. Generally, it’s called an electrical panel but it is also referred to by various names, such as the main breaker box, a distribution panel, fuse box, and so on. It’s sometimes called a breaker panel where you flip the breakers off and on to have the power back whenever it trips. Residential electricians in Toronto usually inspect it first when diagnosing your electrical problem.
In case you’re considering to do the fix yourself with a bit of knowledge about it, you’re only putting yourself to more risk than solving the problem.
