Understanding Your Oklahoma City Home's Circuit Breaker Panel
An electrical circuit breaker panel is the main distribution point of electrical power in your Oklahoma City home. Your electrical meter receives electric power from the utility company lines. The power then goes into the breaker panel, from where it’s safely supplied in the entire house.
Besides directing power where needed, the breaker panel also has safety features to protect the wiring (and your devices and appliances) against electrical shock, fire, short-circuits, voltage fluctuations, overload, and more.
So it’s very important that your breaker panel works properly. You want to make sure it’s not overloaded and can carry your home’s power needs safely.
Keep Your Oklahoma City Home Safe With A Proper Breaker Panel
Home fires caused by malfunctioning or overloaded breaker panels are very common. As our need for electrical devices increases, we keep plugging them in without considering the burden we put on our home’s circuit breaker – or how potentially dangerous that is.
If you plan on adding something to your home in Oklahoma City that will consume a lot of power – like a hot tub, car charger, or bigger AC unit – you need to consider replacing your breaker panel.
An updated breaker panel and electrical system makes your home safer, your appliances run better, and adds value to your property.

Prompt and Personal
We needed work on a buried electrical line and outlet in the backyard that the previous owner installed. The post supporting the outlet had rusted and fallen over.
Justin came out for the estimate and listened to our concerns about the location of the outlet. He made some suggestions on how to keep the line and protect the outlet from weather by moving it up against a shed.
He gave us a very competitive estimate. A few days later, they moved the outlet and also ran a line inside my shed. The portion of the lawn that was dug up was put back in place; like it was never pulled up. I definitely will go with Hopkins for my next electrical work.
Great working with Justin and his crew.
They took care of all my needs including updating all the plugs to GFI to current standards. He added a grounding rod also to bring my folks house up to new standards.
His crew was professional, worked hard and cleaned up.
