Circuit Breakers

Circuit Breakers

Are your breakers Safe?

  1. Do your breakers hum or trip constantly?
  2. Have you ever noticed that your breakers feel warm to the touch?
  3. Does your electrical panel have a funny smell?
  4. Do your lights flicker when you turn on a hair dryer or a vacuum cleaner?

If you answered yes to any of the four questions above please call the experts at In Charge Electric today. There are a lot of reasons why breakers may trip and feel warm.  If your house has any of these symptoms we highly recommend that you give us a call today.  These are warning signs that something could go drastically wrong.

With technology changing every day, the electrical components that are in your home or business may not be able to support today’s high-powered demands.

In Charge Electric recommends that you should have your electrical system evaluated at your home or business.  We also can check if there are any safety issues or hazards.  We can make sure that your electrical system is up to par to today’s standards.

The counterfeit breaker, do you have them in your house?

Did you know that counterfeit breakers and other electrical devices exist?

You have to be very careful because in the last 10 years there has been a plethora of illegal counterfeiting of electrical breakers and other products that are not safe according to US standards.  These counterfeit products are dangerous because they fail to do what they're supposed to do, which is to protect you and keep you safe from electrical faults.

The only way to find out is to have your electrical panel box and breakers inspected by someone who is qualified to recognize such counterfeits.

We also specialize in panel rejuvenations.  This way you can be guaranteed that your panel is working correctly and safely!

What does a circuit breaker do?

Circuit breakers are designed to trip quickly, i.e. turn off the power within a fraction of a second when there is a problem with your electrical system. If the circuit breaker is properly installed, not overloaded and used in conjunction with the correct wire size, a circuit breaker will keep you, your family and your home safe.  

For even more safety, we can install AFCI breakers. These are the only breakers in the world that prevent electrical fires.

Why is my breaker always tripping?

There are many reasons why your breaker could be tripping:

  • A circuit could be overloaded.
  • There could be an intermittent short.
  • Another common cause for repeated breaker tripping is a loose circuit.

Regardless of the reason, it is important to get this fixed immediately.  This should only be performed by a licensed and trained electrician! Never attempt to tighten, replace or remove a breaker on your own!

Call us today at (352) 350-7878 or please request service from our contact page and let the one of our master electricians evaluate your circuit breakers and panels.  Your safety is our number-one concern.
