Common Electrical Panel Issues
Our clients count on CABS to solve all their electrical panel issues. Whether your power is going out more frequently than usual or it's been a while since your last electrical panel inspection, we are happy to help. Some of our most common electrical panel service calls include the following:
- Outdated panels: These can't handle the electrical load of modern appliances, resulting in frequent tripping of circuit breakers.
- Corrosion or rust: This can create a fire hazard.
- Faulty wiring or loose connections: These can lead to overheating and potential fires.
- Improper installation: Panels that aren't correctly installed can pose a significant safety risk.
- Electrical panel inspection: It is recommended that you have a thorough inspection of your electrical panel annually to make sure it's not overloaded and all the connections and wirings are in good shape.
Of all these, though, the most annoying problems is definitely frequent tripping. Frequent tripping of the electrical panel is usually caused by three main issues: circuit overload, short circuits, and ground faults.
Circuit overload occurs when too much electricity flows through the circuit, typically because there are too many appliances or devices operating on the same circuit. This can be prevented by distributing electrical devices across multiple circuits.
Short circuits happen when a hot wire touches another hot wire or a neutral wire, causing a large amount of current to flow and trip the breaker.
Ground faults are similar to short circuits but occur when a hot wire touches a ground wire or a metal outlet box. Both short circuits and ground faults require professional attention to fix.
Additionally, environmental factors such as lightning strikes or storms can also cause circuit breakers to trip. If your circuit breaker is tripping frequently, it's important to identify the cause and address it immediately, as excessive electricity passing through a circuit can overheat the electrical wiring in your home or electrical devices, potentially causing a fire or electrocution. So don't delay, contact CABS right away.
