Electrical Panel Repair
We can all agree that electricity is one of the best conveniences that we have in our homes. Because of electricity, we can enjoy our computers, televisions, lights, heaters, kitchen appliances, and so much more. When something in your electrical system fails, it will probably disrupt your whole day. This is especially true when it comes to your electrical panel. Your panel is at the heart of your system, and a breakdown can spell serious trouble.
At A-Lumination Electric, we want to make sure you have someone you can turn to when your panel shows signs of needing a repair. With more than two decades of experience in the area, a good reputation, and 24/7 service, you can depend on us for quality repairs.
Your Electrical Panel
Before electricity makes its way to your phone, light fixtures, or laundry machine, it’s going to go through your electrical panel first. Your panel has several rows of switches that control the electricity in each zone of your house. Any irregularities in electrical flow will cause the breaker to trip, protecting your electrical system from overload. Without an electrical panel, the system would overload, wires would heat up, and it would cause sparks and maybe even a fire.
Homes in central Florida are set up with either a circuit breaker or a fuse box. Both function similarly to protect you and your home. Circuit breakers are much easier to maintain since all you have to do is flip the switch back on after it trips, but at A-Lumination Electric, we also offer fuse box repair to meet the needs of everyone in our community.
When to Call A-Lumination Electric
Thankfully, your panel is probably going to let you know when there’s a problem, but it’s up to you to pay attention and call when something isn’t right. Some of the first signs of a faulty panel will be flickering lights, a breaker frequently tripping, or unusual sounds such as buzzing or popping. You should also check every once in a while to make sure your panel isn’t warm to the touch since this could be an indication of a loose connection.
It is understandable if you’ve brushed off dimming lights or other seemingly minor problems, especially if you live in an older home with a lot of quirks. But we always recommend getting these things checked out so that you can avoid any dangerous situations. We are always here for a quick chat!
Repair or Replacement?
Not every problem with your panel automatically means you need an upgrade or a replacement. In fact, many electrical issues can be solved with a quick repair and we always do what we can to find the best options for you that won’t break the bank. One of the first things we’ll do is discuss electrical panel repair vs replacement with you.
Replacements and upgrades are generally reserved for when your panel doesn’t have enough amperage to support your devices and appliances, or for when your panel has become unsafe or too expensive to repair. Water damage, home renovations, or n old panel may cause us to recommend a replacement. We’ll always give you our honest opinion so that you can trust our advice wholeheartedly.
Some problems that occur with your electrical panel will need to be taken care of right away. We are here 24/7 to take your call and we encourage you to reach out to us any time you have concerns about your electrical system. We would rather you call and discover that there is nothing wrong than to wait and have a worse problem happen overnight.
A flickering light or a tripping breaker can probably wait until morning, but if you smell smoke, see sparks, notice a hot panel, or find scorch marks around your outlets, you should call right away. We want you to be safe, so we always have a real person on call to talk to you.
