Electrical Panels by Superpower Electric
You may have heard the terms breaker box, breaker board, service box, service panel, or electric box. All of these names are used to describe the same thing: the electrical panel. No matter what you call it, the electrical panel is the control center for power in your home. You should know where it’s located, and how to operate it in the case of an emergency.
The purpose of a panel is to control the electricity coming from the utility company into your home. The breakers that are attached to each circuit in the panel are necessary safety devices. If a circuit overloads (meaning there is too much power being demanded of the circuit), the breaker will “trip,” thus preventing the flow of electricity. Electrical arcing, faulty wiring and electrical overloads are common reasons why the breaker might trip. Once a breaker is able to be turned back on, electricity will flow into that circuit once again.
The panel is often referred to as “the heart” of any electrical system. A good panel can prevent serious damage and protect against hazards. If you are unsure about the state of your panel, give Superpower Electric a call, and we will be more than happy to discuss it with you.
We inspect the state of your electrical panel and more during our Free 33 Point Home Safety Check. Our friendly electricians take it upon themselves to make sure that you know the condition of your home’s electrical system. Request a home safety inspection or any of our comprehensive electrical repair and replacement services, by phone or online.

That’s correct, you read right: we offer a 10-Year Warranty on all service panel upgrades in Central New Jersey! That’s how confident we are in the ability of our certified technicians and the quality of our electrical products. We believe and trust in our experience. A job correctly done from the beginning greatly minimizes the possibility of breakdowns or equipment failure.
Many of our houses were built and wired during a time that microwaves, hot tubs, and home theatre systems simply weren’t available. These added conveniences greatly tax those older systems, putting us, our homes, and our families in jeopardy by overloading them. Though initially this may merely cause a breaker to trip, if you reset a breaker too often it will deteriorate – thus creating a potential fire hazard.
Service panel upgrades in Central New Jersey homes are recommended for the following reasons:
- A service panel upgrade will ensure that your electrical system is efficient and safe – providing peace of mind to you and your family.
- Our high quality, modern panels are designed with the addition of future circuits in mind – offering you the ability to expand your home and circuitry with minimal inconvenience and expense.
