Panel and Breaker Services

What Does A Tripped Breaker Mean?

When your breaker is tripped, it means that too much power was flowing through and the breaker tripped to protect the circuit from overheating. Tripping breakers are never fun, and it’s especially inconvenient when it happens in a commonly used part of your home like the kitchen. One minute you’re enjoying a fun dinner party and the next, you and your guests are shrouded in darkness. The only thing standing between you and an evening thrown into darkness is your circuit breaker panel.

Don’t be the victim of your overloaded breaker panel – call Arnold Electrical!

When Should I Get My Panel Upgraded or Replaced?

There are a few crucial times to have your home’s electrical panel inspected. It’s essential to consider panel upgrades during any major home renovation or addition. This includes installing anything that demands significant electricity, such as an electric car charging station or entertainment center.

In any home sale process, you may want to have the electrical panel inspected by a Chicago licensed electrician before a home inspector is called. It’s possible there have been “upgrades” over the years by DIY-ers who have not adhered to state electrical safety codes. Arnold Electric can save you from costly delays by bringing your panel up to code before the home inspector demands it.

Reasons to Have Your Electrical Panels Inspected

A circuit breaker evaluation or inspection is a great idea any time of the year, but it’s especially important to check your breaker’s health for certain situations. If the answer to any of the following questions is yes, consider your home’s safety! You need to have a professional electrician assess your circuit breaker and ensure that your system is ready to safely provide power to your home.

  • Are you remodeling your home?
  • Need higher amperage breakers?
  • Can your panel handle new breakers?
  • Is your panel more than 20 years old?

When you work with the professionals at Arnold Electrical, you’ll never have to worry about these questions again! Live a stress-free life with all the electrical power you need by simply picking up the phone and talking to our friendly customer service representatives.
