Does your electrical panel have breakers from different manufacturers?
This is fairly common practice because many are mechanically interchangeable (they will fit though not as tight as manufacturer specifications). But this practice is not safe and does not meet UL listing standards. If there were a fire and it was decided that the panel played a part in it, this action may void your Homeowner s Insurance Policy. Feel free to call and ask your insurance company about this.
Modern circuit breaker panels have more safety features and are more convenient; these panels are built to far higher safety standards than outdated fuse panels or split bus system breaker panels.
Extra protection is incorporated into the latest equipment in the form of circuit breakers. These circuit breakers protect every device in the house with sensitive circuitry that responds quickly if there is a fault, opening the circuit and eliminating the electrical fire hazard. There is also excellent protection available in the form of ground-fault circuit breakers and arc-fault circuit breakers.
Older equipment and wiring systems did not have to support the modern appliances of our day. Overloading and doubling up of circuits is common in outdated fuse or circuit breaker panels, the result of improper installations that were never inspected. This can cause fires. Upgrading the electrical circuit breaker box in your home by installing a new circuit breaker box / main service panel can eliminate this potentially dangerous situation
Code varies between cities and towns and this is why you need an electrician that knows your local code. Electrical code was created to protect you from injuries and fires, don t disregard it. In comparison, would you drive a car that has not met specific safely standards?
Examples of some of the codes you must follow include:
The bathroom must have its own 20A circuit. There must be a GFCI outlet within 3-feet of the outside edge of the sink, on a wall that is adjacent to the sink or countertop. The circuit that serves this outlet cannot serve anything outside of this bathroom, but can serve other things within the same bathroom such as lights or an exhaust fan (w/o heater).
Even though some people may have some electrical knowledge, I would advise against taking on a basement wiring job by yourself.
