Electrical Service Panels

A key component of any electrical system in a home or business is the electrical service panel. These panels redirect electricity from the grid (through the meter) into the various appliances, outlets, and devices on the property that need electrical power. Damage to an electrical panel can result in total loss of power, and that can mean that a complex or urgent (or both!) claim lands on your desk. As an insurance adjuster, it’s important that you know enough about electrical service panels so that you can handle these claims accurately and effectively.
