Your home’s electrical panels, fuse boxes, and breaker boxes are central and essential parts of your home’s electrical system. They distribute the electricity from your utility provider so that you can power everything in your home. Of course, this means that they can also be dangerous; if they are malfunctioning, that could mean serious problems, and they are not items that you want to work on alone. You need a licensed electrician. For electrical panels, fuses & breaker box repairs in Franklin, Cashiers, and Highlands, NC, call Andrews Auld Heating & Cooling, Inc. at (828) 229-2727.
When to Repair an Electrical Panel, Fuse Box, or Breaker Box
If you think that your fuse box needs repairs, it is important that you call an electrician as soon as possible. A broken fuse box or electrical panel is a fire hazard; repairing these or a breaker box could mean preventing a fire. If your breakers are tripping often, that is a sign that it may be time for you to have the breaker box repaired. If the breakers won’t reset, or the fuse box gets hot, call an electrician immediately.
Your home and family’s safety are the primary reasons to have your electrical panels and other parts checked, and repaired, if necessary. When the lights dim without reason, you may need to check the fuse box. Sometimes, electrical systems have outdated safety standards without owners realizing it, too. Make sure that all of your electrical safety standards are up-to-date, particularly if your home and electrical system are old; some older homes–built from the 60s to the 80s–may have fuse and breaker boxes that are no longer up to code. While many homes get sold and the breaker boxes replaced, some people are still living in old homes with old electrical systems. The electrical panels and fused boxes may heat up, or not trip when they should.
Fuse and breaker box inspections and repairs are valuable investments in many ways. When you have your electrical panel and repaired, you may be adding value to your property, should you ever plan to sell. You may also lower your home insurance rates if you update your electrical panels.
