Panelboards split power feeds into secondary circuits while providing a protective circuit breaker for each circuit housed within the enclosure.
Panelboards are a component within an electrical supply system. Panelboards split power feeds into secondary circuits while providing a protective circuit breaker for each circuit housed within the enclosure. The average person knows this object as a circuit breaker or the “fuse box” located in the attic or basement of their home.
However, a qualified power professional understands that a panelboard’s capacity and construction will vary, depending on the power needs of their customer. Selecting the right panelboard will help ensure that it can safely accommodate the power equipment that will be housed inside and used on a daily basis. Proper selection and installation of panelboards in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, will also ensure that your work will not be cited by the city inspector.
Making any initial type of power installation or electricity change is a major task and should not be done quickly or haphazardly. Through thoughtful consideration and consultation with electrical power professionals such as as found at Portman Electric, Inc. will guarantee success. As Industrial and Commercial electrical contractors with 28 years of electrical installation experience we at Portman Electric thought it would be helpful to create a checklist to assist in the process to ensure the best panelboard solutions are selected and installed correctly so they can function safely.
"Showed up on time. Justin and his co-worker were plesant and very professional. They went right to work installing the new 17k generac generator. Justin noticed that a prior electrician had made a mess of our 400 amp panel. He went out of his way to rewire the panel and bring it up to code. Everything they did was very neat and professional. When the job was finished you would never know they were there. I am going to have them back to do outside lighting in the spring."
