Properly Labeling Your Circuit Breaker Box

labeling your circuit breaker boxLabeling your circuit breaker box properly may not seem like a big deal. The problem is that in an emergency it can be very important. Most homes in Northern Kentucky don’t have properly labeled circuit breakers. Unless it is a new installation or a new home, over time people have worked on their breaker box and changed or removed labels.

Why Labeling Your Circuit Breaker Box Is Important

Besides being a safety issue, a properly labeled circuit breaker panel is part of the National Electrical Code. This is because in an electrical emergency you want to be able to shut power off to the item or appliance without having to shut power off to the entire system. If you wanted to shut off the circuit breaker to your dryer, would it take a few seconds or a half hour? If you have a problem with one of your appliances or electrical devices, it is important to keep you and your family safe that the circuit breaker can be found quickly.
