The circuit breaker panel has been called “the heart of the house.” It is the main distribution point for electrical circuits in your home. It distributes power throughout your house and disconnects power from the incoming feed.
The power for the circuit breaker panel comes into a main breaker and then individual breakers distribute individual branch circuits throughout your home.
Once a year you do want to exercise those electrical circuit breakers. That is just turning the breaker on and off. You do this to make sure they aren’t frozen – that they are working.
There are older circuit breaker panels and circuit breakers that have been shown to have problems: Federal Pacific, Zinsco and Pushmatic. You want to make sure your breakers are providing the function they are designed for and do NOT want a breaker with inherent design flaws.
