Commonly asked questions about breaker boxes

Signs that your breaker box may need replacement include frequent electrical issues, such as tripped breakers or flickering lights, outdated equipment (fuse boxes), visible damage or corrosion on the panel, or if your home’s electrical demands have outgrown the capacity of the existing panel.

A breaker box replacement typically involves assessing the existing electrical system, selecting an appropriate replacement panel, obtaining necessary permits, shutting off power to the existing panel, disconnecting and removing the old panel, installing the new panel, wiring circuits to the breakers, testing functionality, and ensuring compliance with regulations.

The duration of a breaker box replacement depends on various factors, including the complexity of the installation, the size of the panel, any additional electrical work required, and local permitting processes. On average, a residential breaker box replacement may take anywhere from a few hours to a full day.

The Role of thermal imaging in electrical maintenance

One of the key tools we use in our preventive electrical maintenance services is infrared cameras otherwise known as thermal imaging. This advanced technology allows us to detect and visualize temperature variations within your electrical systems, providing valuable insights into potential issues that may not be visible to the naked eye. 

By identifying hot spots and areas of excessive heat, infrared imaging helps us pinpoint potential problems such as loose connections, overloaded circuits, and faulty components. Unfortunately, not all electrical companies make use of thermal imaging which means these companies have no way to spot overheating until it becomes costly, inconvenient, and potentially hazardous.
