Location of Main and Distribution Panels
The main and distribution panels connect to the electric power feed to the house and divide the electrical current into circuits. Each circuit has a breaker or a fuse which is housed on distribution panels in the breaker or fuse box. This system also has a main disconnect switch that turns off all electrical power to the house.
Anything dealing with electricity in the house always carries the risk of sparks or fire and must be handled with care. With the main and distribution panels, the individual circuits must all have breakers or fuses and these must all be labeled correctly. The system must also be assembled so that no one circuit carries too much amperage.
