Replacing Faulty Circuit Breaker Switches

Circuit breaker switches are important safety mechanisms in your home that can prevent too much electricity from traveling through your wiring - a dangerous fire hazard. A few signs that your switches are faulty and require circuit breaker replacement include:

  • Breakers tripping repeatedly
  • Flickering or dimming lights
  • Unable to operate more than one appliance at a time
  • Burning odors or burn marks on outlets
  • Panel board cover is hot to the touch
  • Buzzing or crackling noises
  • Appliance upgrades
  • Older circuit breaker panels

While simply flipping a switch on a breaker is an easy enough DIY task, any time you're dealing with electricity, it's always best to call in an experienced residential electrician in Fairfield for your safety - and the safety of your home and family.

Understanding Circuit Breakers

A circuit breaker is an electrical switch that is specifically designed to prevent current overload in your wiring. When protective relays detect a fault in the system, the circuit breaker "trips" and interrupts the current, protecting your wiring and appliances and preventing the risk of fire.

The common causes of circuit breaker trips include:

  • Overloaded circuits
  • Short circuits or wire-to-wire contact
  • Ground fault surges or wire-to-ground contact
  • Arc fault due to loose terminals or bad connections

It's important to know that having a professional electrician inspect your system and provide circuit breaker replacement and other services can prevent big issues down the road. To request services in the Fairfield area, give Landmark Electric LLC a call today.
