Electrical Panel Repair
The circuit breaker panel, also known as a load center or panelboard, is a very important part of the electrical system in your home. This enclosure is where the power supplied by the utility is distributed to the various circuits that supply the appliances, lights, and outlets in your home. The load center not only distributes the power to the electrical system, but it also contains some very important safety devices: the circuit breakers. The circuit breakers provide protection for your home and your family by helping to keep the electrical system free of dangerous conditions like overloads and faults. Properly designed, installed, and maintained load centers can prevent fires, shocks, and electrocution. Many electrical problems in the home, such as flickering lights or outlets that are not working, may actually be caused by problems in the load center. If there are problems with the electrical system in your home you may need to call a Licensed Electrician for Electrical Panel Repair.
How do I know if my electrical system needs Electrical Panel Repair?
Sometimes it is very apparent that Electrical Panel Repair is needed. Visible rust or corrosion on the load center is a good indicator that there is a problem. If the electrical panel cover is hot to the touch or if the circuit breakers are making excessive noise those are signs that there may be a dangerous problem with the electrical panel and you should contact a Licensed Electrician immediately. In many other cases there may be problems with the breaker panel that are not immediately visible and are only evident after a Licensed Electrician has diagnosed a different problem in the electrical system. This is why Summit Electric will always inspect the load center in your home when doing any repair.
