Is Your Electrical System Healthy? Our Electricians Can Diagnose It.
The electrical system is like the nervous system of your home. When your electrical panel starts to fail, it will affect your whole system. The electrical panel is the spine of your system. The panel houses the circuit breakers, which manage the flow of electricity, safeguard against short-circuit hazards, over-current hazards, and hinder devastating fires caused by electricity.
Our professional electricians at West Houston Electric can make sure your electrical panel is in peak working order. Don’t wait until it’s too late – give us a call today at (832) 925-4669.
What Happens When Circuit Breakers Trip?
The purpose of a circuit breaker is to safeguard your property from electrical shorts and over-currents. If a circuit breaker does not trip like it is supposed to, heat is conducted to the panel and other breakers. This will lead to the melting of other breakers. On the occasion that your circuit breaker trips, it probably just needs to be reset. A repeated tripped circuit breaker is sign that there is something else going on. Your wiring or panel may need to be upgraded or you might have a circuit that is overloaded.
The following signs should tell you that you that you have a serious problem that needs attention:
- Repeated tripped breaker switches
- Lights that flicker/dim
- Burning odor or sparks
- Corrosion or rust
- Burn marks
Does My Panel Need to Be Replaced?
Between 1950s and the 1980s, many homes had a Federal Pacific (FPE) or Zinsco electrical panel installed. These panels could go for years without a problem. Then, suddenly, the breakers on the panels failed to trip. This caused many incidents of fires all around the country. If you’re not sure if your home has one of these panels, give our experienced West Houston electricians a call. They will come check out your panel and offer you a free estimate should you need service or replacement.
Don’t Go It Alone
