The electrical panel is an important item in your home. It consists of circuit panels that control different areas inside your home and distribute electricity to them. It can be hard to pinpoint which circuit controls each area, so it’s recommended to have labels set on the panel. If your electrical panel doesn’t have labels, you should call a knowledgeable electrician and ask for assistance. We’ll now go over the importance of labeling your electrical panel and how you can label it yourself at home as well.
The labeling process requires two people and can take up to several hours. The first step will be to locate your electrical panel. Most panels are placed in the basement, inside the garage, or somewhere near the front of the house.
Position one person next to the electrical panel and the other in a room. Have one person mark down which room you’re in and which circuit corresponds to that room. The person inside the room should now be turning on all lights and fixtures, plugging in a lamp or something similar, and recognizing which switch turns on each fixture. The person managing the electrical panel should be labeling each breaker with a number if it isn’t already labeled. Next, they’ll start switching off each breaker and waiting for a signal from the other person. The person in the room should pay attention to anything turning on and off, caused by the breakers, and inform the person next to the panel if anything happens.
When something turns off, the person recording the data should write down which circuit turned off a certain fixture, and the exact location of the fixture that was turned off. Continue recording this for every room in the house.
