Residential Panels

Electrical panels, also known as breaker boxes or service panels, control where power goes in your home. Every appliance uses electricity that travels from outside through the panel, where it is directed through the house via a circuit. You’ll recognize the panel as a steel box full of switches, usually found in the basement, laundry, or other utility room. When a breaker gets tripped, as often happens when using appliances like hair dryers or space heaters, the panel has disconnected a circuit to protect electrical equipment. Panels also control how much power is available for personal electronics and appliances.



Commercial Panels

There are no major functional difference between the panels used in homes and businesses, although of course, businesses consume more power.
How do you know if you need to replace your electrical panel? Call Transfer Electric today if you have one or several of the following problems:

    Main Breaker

    A large circuit breaker that can cut off the main supply of electricity to prevent damage and injury.

  • icon

    Bus Bars

    Bus bars carry power from electrical meter through the circuit breakers and into the circuits.

  • icon

    Grounding Bus Bars

    This connects all the grounding wires to the ground. The grounding wires direct power away from the building when there are dangerous surges so that you stay safe.

    Main Breaker Panels

    These panels already have the main breaker built in, so shutting it off will shut the power down through the entire building.

    If the panel provides enough electricity, but one particular room keeps experiencing problems, a sub-panel can help. These can change energy distribution and make sure enough energy reaches important places such as greenhouses or computer rooms. It is important to note, however, that sub-panels do not make more electricity available. If you need more power, call Transfer Electric for a panel replacement instead.

    Transfer Switches

    These sub-panels also act as generators, so they are idea for people who live in rural areas or in areas that experience a great number of storms.

Federal Pioneer Electrical Panel

These panels were manufactured from the ‘50s to the ‘80s, and were relabeled as Federal Pioneer panels when installed in Canadian homes. Not all Federal Pioneer panels are unsafe, but Transfer Electric can assess whether your home needs a replacement to prevent fires and shocks.

Pushmatic Electrical Panel

Pushmatics have weak breakers that are difficult to reset over time, meaning that they need to be replaced. Also, they sometimes lack a main breaker so it is extremely important to make a panel replacement appointment if your home or business has one of these panels!


Some models of electrical panels simply need to be replaced because they are old and could potentially be unsafe. If you have one of these following panels, please make an appointment with Transfer Electric so that you, your family, or your business is safe again. Need a safety inspection so you can stop worrying? Transfer Electric can give you peace of mind.
