Electrical Panel Services in Plano, TX

The electrical systems in homes have evolved a long way from the crude porcelain knobs and exposed copper wires that were common in the early twentieth-century. Each change in the wiring technology for homes has increased both safety and electrical capacity. Current homes use a circuit breaker panel to monitor the electrical currents running to all the circuits throughout the building. This component of your residential electrical system requires special attention and care.

Hutchins Plumbing & Air Conditioning has a staff of licensed electricians who can help you whenever you need a new electrical panel or repairs for your current one. We have 40 years of experience in Plano, TX and the surrounding areas making sure that homes have only the best in electrical service. When your electrical panel acts up, or if you think a new one is a good idea, just give us a call.

The Importance of the Circuit Breaker Panel

The electrical panel in a home (a.k.a. the breaker box, electrical box) is something like a central station of the electrical power that enters your home. Its main purpose is to prevent too much electrical current from flowing through a circuit and creating a danger of an electrical fire. The circuit breakers in the electrical panel monitor the current, and when the current moves above a set level, the breaker cuts off the circuit.

Older electrical panels used fuses to protect the circuits, which disintegrated when they heated up too much, after which they needed to be replaced. The modern circuit breaker is a type of switch that flips when the electromagnetic current is strong enough to pull on a metal lever that’s hooked to the switch. The flipped switch breaks contact and cuts off the electrical current. You only need to flip the switch back to reset it.

We’ll Replace the Circuit Breaker in Your Home

An electrical panel will eventually wear down and will need to be replaced. If your home still uses an old fuse box rather than a circuit breaker box, you definitely need it replaced: modern electrical demands are simply too high for fuses to handle without turning major fire hazards. A licensed electrician can have the electrical box removed and an excellent new one installed in its place in no time.

Make sure that you keep a watch for signs that your electrical panel is out of date. If circuits are tripping on a regular basis, or you notice black marks around the switches, call for an electrician to examine the panel to see if it needs to be replaced. In some cases, repairs can take care of the problem.

Repair Service for Circuit Breaker Box

As with any electrical job, repairs for a malfunctioning circuit breaker box must be left to licensed electricians. Fiddling with the wiring circuitry can lead to hazardous high voltage shocks. Improper work can also put the entire electrical system in jeopardy, making it more likely for an electrical fire to start. When you think you’ve got a damaged electrical box, don’t attempt any troubleshooting or analysis on your own. You only need to contact the licensed electricians at Hutchins Plumbing & Air Conditioning and we’ll see that you have the proper assistance necessary. You can depend on us for installation, repair, and replacement services for your circuit breaker panel in Grayson and Collin Counties.
