An electrical contractor is a business that deals in the installation and maintenance of electrical equipment. There is no difference between an electrician and an electrical contractor other than an electrician is a person that is qualified to do the electrical work and an electrical contractor is a business generally employing the electricians to do the work.

Like any business, this can vary widely depending on competition, market size, reputation, and experience. Some companies do well over a million a year while others struggle to survive.

Choosing the right electrical contractor is probably easier nowadays than ever before. We live in a digital world where you can research potential companies before you even have to pick up your phone. A few good ways to choose an electrical contractor are looking at online reviews, researching BBB complaints, word of mouth from your friends and family, as well as asking for recommendations on social media sites.

Although being an electrician is not a bad paying job, it is not easy to become rich working as an electrician.

A panel is where the electrical circuits are terminated to breakers to separate them from the main electrical supply that feeds the smaller circuits.

A homeowner can only replace an electrical panel in their home if they are currently living there and pull a homeowners permit for electrical work, and secondly if it is not the main electrical panel. Only qualified electricians are allowed to perform panel replacements for the main electrical panel.

There are 4 different types of electrical panels: the main electrical panel, main lug panels, sub panels, and fuse box panels.

Inside an electrical panel consists of breakers, the main breaker or lug where the wires terminate into the panel, a neutral bar, a bus bar, and a bonding bar.
