Bundled wires left in electric panel

Recommended Posts

For some reason the electrician did not trim off the excess wire length and wrapped them up and left them in the bottom of the panel. Could there be any chance of overheating? Is it worth complaining about?

I alway try to neatly pack some slack in the wires. Slack accommodates changing the breaker location, etc. This sparky did a pretty good job of it. In some industrial contracting, it's required. That's where I got the habit from.
