Do you need a ladder to reach your electrical panel? This can be problematic when quick and easy access to the electrical panel is necessary. A qualified electrician will likely advise installing a platform underneath your electrical panel if it is too high for an average-height person to reach with ease. Worst case scenario, re-wire and locate the panel at a lower height. Typically, this means not having the main circuit breaker at the top of the panel any higher than 6’7”. If you need a ladder to flip breakers, it’s definitely too high!
