Electrical Panel and Circuit Breaker Issues

Does your circuit breaker trip every time you plug in an appliance or turn on a light? Many homeowners in the Twin Cities rely on numerous electronic devices and appliances throughout the day. However, many homes are not equipped to properly handle this load of electricity. Updating the circuit breakers can help prevent power interruptions, surges and electrical fires from overloaded electrical panels. Licensed electricians at Finch Home Solutions in Minnesota specialize in repairing circuit breaker issues with your electrical panel.

Common Circuit Breaker Issues

Common circuit issues can include errors in electrical wiring, tripping and overloading. A circuit breaker is designed to cut off an electrical current that is too high before damage occurs. To accurately assess the issue, the circuit breaker should be looked at by an experienced electrician. The electrician will assess the voltage, amps and continuity on the line to determine the root cause of your electrical issues.

The typical lifespan for circuit breakers is approximately 30 to 40 years, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Preventive maintenance of your electrical panel should be performed every three years to ensure there are no issues with your circuit breakers. Your circuit breaker may need replacement if you notice a burning smell or frayed wiring. A prompt repair can extend the life of your appliances and protect your home from extensive electrical fire damage.

Power Surge Protection for Circuit Breakers

Power surges can create problems for the circuit breakers in your electrical panel. If you experience a power surge, unplug all your appliances and devices and then reset the circuit breakers. If you notice any damage, call a licensed electrician immediately for electrical repairs. You may need the installation of additional circuit breakers to provide protection from future power surges. After an inspection, an electrician will be able to recommend the best solutions to fit your home’s needs.
