Circuit Breaker Services Frisco Homeowners Count On
Voted Best Local Electrician in 2020 by Readers Choice in Living Magazine!
As technology advances, you may find your home’s circuits can’t handle the load of your appliances and devices. Additional circuit breaker installation will be beneficial if one circuit breaker is responsible for a number of high-power appliances.
This installation will split the burden of power between two breakers, allowing your appliances to function better. In some areas, adding circuit breakers to an electrical panel requires a permit and can be dangerous to attempt if you’re unfamiliar with local, state and national electrical codes.
Benchmark Electrical Services can repair and install circuit breakers safely, while following all standards set by the National Electrical Code. We look forward to helping you make your home safe again and welcoming you to the Benchmark family!
What is a dedicated circuit?
A dedicated circuit is used for high-power appliances like washers, dryers, refrigerators, AC window units or ovens. Devices on dedicated circuits have their own breaker in your electrical box to ensure your appliances run safely without tripping breakers or affecting other machines.
If you have an older home, you may not have dedicated circuits for your larger appliances. An easy way to spot this problem is if you frequently have tripped breakers when one of your large appliances is running.
It’s important to replace circuit breakers with dedicated circuits to reduce the risk of overheating wires and starting a fire. Our licensed electricians can inspect your home and install dedicated circuits within a small dispatch window – all while providing upfront pricing to keep you informed and on budget.
Circuit Breaker Repair
If you have a tripped breaker that won’t restore power even after resetting it, you may need electrical repairs. Although a faulty circuit breaker needs replacement and cannot be repaired, the wires leading up to it can be repaired.
Breakers that are hot or look burned should be replaced immediately and inspected to make sure no other problems were caused behind the panel. Never attempt to do more than reset the breaker. Contact our certified electricians to inspect your circuits and restore power to your home!
