What You Need to Know About Your Breaker Box
Your home’s breaker box: it serves as the electrical brain of your household. Situated behind a boring-looking metal door, your breaker box is a wealth of information and functionality. It controls virtually all the electrical functions of your home, including your HVAC system, water pump, and television. It does this by serving as a central relay point – drawing power from the grid outside and feeding that power to the various electrical outlets in your home. If your breaker box needs service, or you need a new breaker box added to your home, you need a team experienced in electrical installation to make it happen. Fortunately, Sumner Electric Services is here for.
Troubleshooting Breaker Box Issues
Is your breaker box acting up? Because most of us only open our breaker boxes when we need to turn a switch on or off, it can be particularly challenging to troubleshoot breaker box issues. Here are a few common problems we see with Electrical Automation, though:
- Improper electrical repairs. If you’ve had previous work done to your breaker box, the issue you’re experiencing now may be a result of some of that having been done improperly.
- Flickering or blinking lights. This is commonly an issue of faulty wiring and could be a fire risk.
- Humming. If your breaker box is making a humming sound, your circuit breaker may be overloaded, and just shy of shutting down. This is a dangerous problem that requires an expert immediately.
