Upgrade Your Electric Panel to Be Ready for the Holidays


The holiday lights strung around your windows, trees, and landscaping, the animatronic snowman, and Santa’s sleigh with reindeer may not seem to be using much electricity but together they add a significant load to your home’s electrical system.

Prevent Holiday Lighting From Overloading Your Circuits


When you lose power suddenly in an area of your home, it is usually from an overloaded circuit that is drawing too much electricity, causing a circuit breaker to trip. Frequently this is caused by plugging in too many electrical devices and lights into one power strip.

How to Prepare Your Home for Winter Electrically – Part 2


As discussed in Part 1, preparing your home electrically before winter arrives will help ensure you have power and stay safe during the colder months. Part 2 will cover three more ways for preparing your home electrically for winter.


 


Test Smoke Detectors


 


In the case of home fires, having fully functioning smoke detectors throughout your home may be the difference between getting out of your home safely or ending up in a hospital. This also applies to detectors that alert you to the presence of deadly carbon monoxide. Make sure to test each of these devices in your home. Some may need their battery replaced and if a device is over 10 years old, it is time to replace it. Since 2018, Maryland requires “ALL Maryland residents to have 10-year lithium battery tamper resistant smoke alarms with the silence/hush feature on every level of their home.”


 


Test Electrical Outlets


 


Preparing your home electrically for winter should also involve having all your electrical outlets tested. Checking your outlets will ensure they are providing sufficient power and their wires are properly connected and grounded. If you are a fan of DIY, a simple way of testing your electrical outlets’ functionality and safety is with a multimeter. An even better way is asking a licensed electrician to perform these tests during an electrical inspection.


 


Rewire Your Home


 


After performing an electrical inspection of your home, a licensed electrician may recommend rewiring some areas of your home for safety reasons. Worn out or defective wiring is hazardous and can lead to a deadly electrical fire in your home. If your home is 50 years old or older, and you rely on extension cords to supply some rooms with electricity, this situation is unsafe and your home’s electrical system needs rewiring.

Electrical Subpanel Basics for Homes – Part 2


As Part 1 discussed, an electrical subpanel is basically a smaller service panel. It can be described as a “satellite circuit breaker panel.” A subpanel is typically installed in a location far from the main service panel and convenient to the area it serves. Part 2 will discuss the Benefits of Electrical Subpanels and Construction Savings.

Electrical Subpanel Basics for Homes – Part 1


The main service panel, also known as the circuit breaker box or load center, is the heart of every home’s electrical system. It is where the utility company’s electrical feed enters a house from the meter. The main service panel then distributes electricity to the branch circuits of the home.







An electrical sub panel performs like a smaller service panel with its own circuit breakers, distributing power to an area of a home or a nearby structure. A subpanel is installed in a convenient and accessible location for its service area.





Why Subpanels Are Needed





Some houses need subpanels to add circuits to a location situated far from the main service. Subpanels are often required for a garage or guest house on a home’s property. Usually rated at 60 to 125 amps, a subpanel’s capacity will depend on the electrical usage anticipated for its service area.









For supplying power to large appliances and car chargers, additional circuits will be split off from a subpanel to handle their power demands. Electrical subpanels located on detached dwellings will each require its own grounding system.





Connections





An electrical sub panel needs two hot wires that are connected to a 240-volt double-pole breaker inside the main service panel. In addition, a neutral wire and a ground wire will be required. This wiring configuration is described as a “three-wire cable with ground.” Acting as feeder wires, the two hot wires supply all the electricity to a subpanel.









A three-wire cable with ground is connected to a 240-volt main breaker inside a subpanel, which then provides power to two hot bus bars. Connected to the bus bars, circuit breakers are used for distributing electricity to the branch circuits running from a subpanel.









Sizing of Subpanels





The proper sizing of subpanels to meet the electrical load anticipated presents some challenges. The two factors are the amount of available power load required and the capacity of the main service panel.









For example, a home equipped with a 200-amp main service panel will have no issue installing a 100-amp subpanel for powering a barn, garage, or shed. It should also have no problem feeding a 60-amp subpanel used for powering general-use outlets or lighting in a newly added room.









Part 2 will discuss the Benefits of Electrical Subpanels and Construction Savings.
