What Does a Service Box Do?
A service box is a metal box where the building’s electric service conductors are located. It prevents circuits from overloading and causing a potential fire threat. Many older buildings lack a proper circuit breaker box that will indeed trip when an overload occurs. Keeping your service box current and in good working order is insurance and peace of mind that you are protected.
Signs You Need Service Box Updates
There are some subtle signs that your service box may need an update. Unfortunately, many homeowners and business owners wait too long to replace or update their service box and it ends in their entire building being without power, or on fire. Here are a few signs you may require a service box update:
- Evidence of burning or overheating at the panel
- Breakers that will not reset
- Breakers that constantly need to be reset
- Your system is more than 30 years old
