Common Electric Panel Problems

As a trained home inspector, I have opened and inspected hundreds of residential electric panels.  Whether they are main service panels or subpanels, there always seems to be a short list of recurring issues in these panels.  This post is designed to help you identify these potential problems and be able to contact a professional to have them corrected.
