Circuit Breaker Installation & Replacement

In Somerset, most homes were built in 1978 or earlier, meaning you could be relying on an outdated circuit breaker if it hasn’t been replaced since your home was constructed.

With proper maintenance, most circuit breakers last between 30 and 40 years; however, there are other signs aside from age that it might be time to consider circuit breaker replacement, including:

  • Repair frequency: If you’re constantly calling for circuit breaker repairs, it could be a sign that your system is reaching the end of its usable lifespan.
  • Frequent tripping: A frequently tripping breaker could indicate that it’s struggling to handle the electrical load and needs replacement.
  • Burn marks: Visible scorch marks or melted plastic are signs of overheating and warrant replacement to prevent electrical hazards.
  • Inconsistent power: If certain areas of your property experience inconsistent power supply, you could have a faulty circuit breaker that needs replacement.
  • Repair cost: If the cost to repair your circuit breaker is 50% or more than the price to replace it, a system upgrade could be more cost-effective.

The Importance of Monitoring Your Circuit Breaker

Monitoring your circuit breaker is important to maintaining electrical safety and reliability in your home. By regularly inspecting the circuit breaker panel for signs of damage, wear, or overheating, you can identify potential issues early and take corrective action before escalation.

Circuit breakers are designed to protect against electrical overloads and short circuits, but if they become faulty or overloaded themselves, they can pose a significant risk of electrical fires. Monitoring them allows you to ensure that your circuit breakers are functioning properly, preventing potential electrical fires and protecting your household.

Frequently Asked Questions

Circuit breakers and electrical panels are not the same thing. The electrical panel, also known as the breaker box or fuse box, houses multiple circuit breakers or fuses that control electricity distribution throughout a building.

While circuit breakers protect against overloads and short circuits, they may also offer some protection against power surges, depending on their type and design. However, whole-house surge protectors are designed to mitigate the impact of power surges and are often recommended for additional protection.
