Katy Electrical Panel Installation & Repair

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 panel houses the circuit breakers, which manage the flow of electricity, safeguard against short-circuit and over-current hazards, and hinder devastating electrical fires.

Need electrical panel services in Katy, West Houston, or the surrounding areas? Our professional electricians at West Houston Electric can make sure your breaker box is in peak working order.

Don’t wait until it’s too late; give us a call today at (832) 925-4669 or contact us online.

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. However, a circuit breaker that constantly trips 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 or Upgraded?

Between the 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 electrical 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 Katy electricians a call. They will come check out your panel and offer you a free estimate should you need electrical panel service or replacement.

With Electrical Panels, Don’t Go It Alone

Attempting to work on a breaker box when you are not properly trained is extremely risky. You could end up with serious injury to yourself or others, as well as serious property damage. Once you have checked with your power company to make sure there is no problem with the electrical service, certified technicians should be called in to do the job. When you are looking for West Houston residential electrical panel services, call your friends at West Houston Electric to come by for diagnostics and service.
