Circuit Breaker Panels Service in Houston, Texas
The panel is the heart of your electrical system. It is by far the most important component. It controls the flow of power through your home, and in the case of an irregular event, it will cut off electricity to prevent serious damages from starting.
It usually provides between 100 and 200 amps of power to
your home, depending on your home’s load demand. Power
comes in to your home from the utility company, through
a service entrance. It flows through an electrical
meter, through an electrical disconnect and then to the
main breaker in your electrical panel.

equipped with three or less major appliances, a 100-amp
circuit breaker panel will provide an adequate amount of
power to feed the home in most cases. If you have a much

If you are unsure what size circuit breaker panel you
need, you can calculate by looking at the amps rating of
each of the appliances in the home. If you are still
unsure, call a professional licensed electrician to help
you estimate the load requirements for your home.
