Labeling Your Breaker Box

While many jobs having to do with home electrical wiring should be left to an electrician, tasks like replacing a ceiling fan or changing a light fixture are within the skill sets of many homeowners. Before tackling projects like these, you need to turn off the power to that part of your home. However, if your circuit breakers aren’t marked, then this can turn into a guessing game.

To distinguish one circuit breaker from another, plug in a radio in your living room and turn it up loud enough to hear from your electrical box. Then, switch the breakers until the radio turns off, which will tell you which switch corresponds to the living room’s electrical outlets. Through this method, you can easily label your breaker box.
