Elecrtical Panel Dangerous???
 
Ihave the electrical panel for my entire kouse in my spare bedroom. I am wondering if any elctrical panel will emit any sort of dangerous waves I should be concerned with or is this just a myth.Should I cover it and with what would be suggested.Ive worked with metal pretty much my entire life and would prefer to cover it with stainless or aluminum.Or is that just stupid and cover it with wood.A box or cover idea would be appreciated.

The box should already be metal.
As for the EMI emmisions, there are many theories on this but I would not be conecerned.

No concern here either. Why do you ask this question? Are there any issues present?

I've never heard of such a thing. Do not modify the panel or its cover in any way whatsoever. You can put a cabinet door over the front of the panel cover, mounted on hinges to the wall. Be sure not to restrict access to the panel or impede the removal of the panel cover.

An aluminum foil hat may shield you from dangerous waves...:wink:

I believe you might have problems secreting milk from your mammary glands.

I prefer my foil hats to be rounded without the ears. Aliens can read your thoughts better if there are ear holes.

Big myth, there is emi that is emitted, but is not enough to bother anything. I guess for the appearance you can put a wood door over it. DO NOT cover it up to where its not readily accessible, and DO NOT put a large object (like a shelf or something) in front of it.
