Signs You Need to Replace Your Circuit Breakers

Our highly-trained electrical contractors are great at diagnosing and repairing problems with your circuit breaker. However, there are some instances when it makes more sense to replace the breakers rather than repair them.

These signs can indicate your circuit breakers need to be replaced:

Breakers trip frequently

This can indicate that circuits are overloaded and need to be upgraded.

Your system is older than 20 years

The equipment could be at the end of its lifespan or out of date. 

Breakers are damaged

If the breakers are compromised in any way, a professional should inspect them to determine if they can be repaired or if they need to be replaced.

Breakers feel warm and/or are buzzing

If the breakers are warm, they need to be checked before it gets worse.  Sometimes, if this is found sooner than later, the repair cost can be minimized.

Common Problems with Circuit Breakers

While having a circuit breaker malfunction is never ideal, there are some common issues you can look for that an electrical contractor can repair. Some of these include:

Miswired Circuits

Bad wiring can cause minor issues like flickering lights, or more major ones like complete system shutdowns.

Overloaded Circuits

If you are putting too much demand on circuits it can cause a fire or risk injury.

Short Circuits

When a hot wire makes contact with a neutral wire, the electrical charge bypasses its normal route and creates a dangerous current.

Buzzing Noises

Strange noises can be an alert that you have a wiring problem or an overloaded breaker.
