Updating electrical to 220 volt Aunty sexy video free chat com
The simple answer to this question is, “No—Probably not.” Because most electrical service panels are NOT installed by homeowners or “Uncle Harry,” it is actually pretty rare to find a main panel without a main disconnect.There are a couple of ways where it might “appear” to be missing—but is in fact there after all.As a Seattle Home Inspector I love finding panels this nicely wired.This type of panel will not usually have a main disconnect—it will be located at the electrical service equipment—-typically where the meters are located.The first point I will make is that ALL electrical services to the home MUST have a means of shutting off all the power.Being able to shut off all of the power is usually achieved by a Main Disconnect Breaker in the electrical service panel—and should be labeled as such. Where it gets a little confusing is when that main disconnect breaker is in a different location from the panel in the home—like outside the home at the electric meter (as in mobile homes, townhouses, condos and other instances).This type of Service Panel is called a Split-Bus Panel.In these instances the panel in the home is not the electrical service equipment but is instead called a sub-panel.
There is another type of panel that looks, at first glance, like it might be missing a main breaker.
This type of panel is configured such that it takes a maximum of 6 throws to shut all the power off.
My goal is to keep this post simple enough that most readers can understand what I am talking about.
Real estate agents and home owners need to understand the basic principles so that when the inspector calls for replacement of what appears to be a perfectly good panel, they can understand why.
Of course it does no harm to have one and one is often installed for convenience.The following picture is of a pretty close to correctly wired sub-panel.
