As much as you might like to handle home improvement projects by yourself, electric panel installation should be completed by a professional. Videos like the one below can give you a great idea of what is involved in the installation process, but unless you have the proper training and equipment, it’s not something you want to attempt yourself.
Not only is it incredibly dangerous to work with electricity, but it is very easy for your electric panel to be installed incorrectly.
This could cause a lot of issues in your home even if things look like they’re working properly. Circuits can be overloaded, certain outlets might not work at all, and your wiring might not even pass inspection.
While it does pay to watch videos like this one to know how to install an electric panel, you’re always better off contacting an electrician to make sure the job is done the right way the first time. Not only will you have the peace of mind that your home is wired properly, but you won’t have to spend money on repairs on your own botched DIY electric panel installation.
