When To Call An Electrician
A blocked panel or one that isn’t easily accessed is a violation of safety codes in the Canadian Electrical Code.
If you have an electrical panel that you cannot easily get to, that is a good sign that you are in need of a replacement or upgrade.
In addition to their accessibility, an electrical panel is required to have what is known as a “dead front” where electricity cannot be conducted in order to prevent dangerous electrical shocks from occurring.
