Biltmore House – Power Panel

Huge Old Electrical Panel
This is really incredible to see. The technology that was being used at that time is truly amazing, and the fact that it was used until 1990 is great.
While it may not be that massive, if you have an electrical service that is aging and would like to have one of our electricians come inspect and give an estimate to bring it up to date, give us a call!

From the Biltmore House Facebook post:

“While Biltmore House remains closed at this time, we hope you enjoy this peek at the sub-basement, where the original heating and power equipment still stand!
Biltmore was designed with “state-of-the-art” technology of the time. That is evident in Biltmore’s Sub-Basement where the original heating and power equipment still stand. This switchboard measures seven by sixteen feet and is made of four slabs of solid marble chosen for its insulating properties.
This switchboard was used until April of 1990 at which time it was determined to be inadequate to accommodate the needs of the House.”
