Do your lights flicker on and off? Are your circuit breakers constantly tripping? Are you still going to the hardware store for screw-in fuses? If you said yes to any of the previous questions, now is the time to have us perform an electrical system safety check for you today.
Many problems can go undetected until it is too late. Old obsolete fuse and breaker panels can pose a safety hazard to your family, home and property. There are a number of products which were manufactured and sold in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s which are of questionable quality and have proven to be unsafe (see our article FPE Fact or Fiction for an example), and may not provide the level of protection required for safe operation of the electrical systems in your home.
The panel in your home or business is the heart of your electrical system, and provides the required protection for people, equipment and wiring. For the uninitiated, understanding the components of your electrical system can be a bit confusing, so here is a brief explanation:
Circuit Breakers are the primary level of protection in your panel for your electrical system. Standard breakers are not just switches which turn on and off the power to your stuff… their main function is to prevent an overload situation, which would cause overheating on the wiring, which in turn could cause a fire. Standard circuit breakers however are not very good at seeing and protecting against damaged and arching wiring and equipment.
The newly developed Arc Fault Circuit Breakers protect your circuits from just such an arcing (prolonged sparking) situation caused by a pinched or punctured wire or cable offer even more protection because they are designed to see this specific type of problem.
GFCI Circuit Breakers are designed to protect people from electric shock associated with moisture related contact with electrical appliances and tools.
And finally, a Surge Protection Device installed in the panel will protect your whole electrical system and valuable electronics from the damaging effects of electrical surges. (All new panels we install come standard with provisions for mounting a Surge Protector!) Please see our articles on Arc Fault, GFCI and Surge Protection in the Products and Services page of this website for more detailed explanations.
