We’ve all been there. Someone in your family is using the microwave, the mixer, the dishwasher’s running— suddenly when you go to blend a smoothie amongst the kitchen hustle, your power goes out.
Home upgrades are exciting. New floors! New countertops! New … electrical panel?
When you own a home, there are many times when doing the job yourself can save you some money instead of hiring the project out. That said, it’s important to remember that you don’t want to do a job bigger than you can handle.
It’s happened to every homeowner. All the gadgets are plugged into the wall, the television is on, music is blaring, your wife is making a smoothie then you turn on the microwave and everything shuts down. You head to the laundry room, open the circuit breaker box, find the switch, and then flip it back on. Sure, it’s a pain, but your tripped circuit breaker just prevented thousands of dollars of damage.
