When Was the Last Time Your Electrical Panel Was Serviced?
The electrical panel, and the circuit breakers housed within, is the heart of your electrical system. If the heart is not up to date, the circuits, or veins, that take electricity through your home will not work efficiently. By periodically scheduling a service every two to three years, you can extend the life of the panel and potentially even prevent your appliances from needing costly repairs.

How To Know If You Need A Circuit Breaker Service
You'll know that you have a problem with your circuit board if the circuit trips again after flipping the switch back to the "On" position. Check the appliance plugs first. Frayed wires can cause sudden surges, which will trip the circuit to protect your home from an electrical fire.
Common Circuit Breaker Issues Include:
- Corroded connections
- Faulty or loose wires
- Melted or chewed wiring or melted devices
- Bad connections
- Burnt cords
However, if your plugs seem alright, identify how many appliances operate off that circuit. The circuit is only designed to support a specific amperage; if you demand more of that connection, the panel will cut power to that part of your home.
Why Should You Replace Your Electrical Panel?
Are you experiencing problems with your circuits? Replacing your electrical panel might be the right solution to the issues you're dealing with.
Electrical panel replacement provides the following benefits:
- Improves the safety of your home since a malfunctioning panel could potentially cause an electrical fire on your property.
- Supplies a steady flow of power to modern technology and electrical appliances without overloading circuits and causing frequent trips.
- Increases the amount of circuits based on demand, so you can keep your home safe and efficiently powered.

Don't Be Shocked! Circuit Problems Are Common!
If your circuits keep breaking even after checking the voltage load, let our experienced Dallas electrician inspect the wiring. You may have a problem in the walls of your home with crossed or exposed wires. Continuing to demand that these wires support an electrical surge can quickly lead to a fire hazard.
Prevent Overloads & Keep Electricity Flowing
If your circuit breakers trip frequently, it usually means your panel is overloaded. To minimize the risk of an electrical fire, we recommend having ElectricMan inspect your home's electrical system as soon as possible. Your electrical panel hosts all of your home's connections – if the panel is more than 15 years old, the circuit trips may be due to old equipment. Our Dallas electricians can assess the electrical equipment throughout your home and determine the right solution to fix your problem.
What Causes An Overload?
- Melting wires. Overloading a circuit—meaning too many appliances are running on one power circuit at a time—can cause wires to melt and become damaged and shorted. This common problem can be very dangerous, which is why many electricians recommend that, particularly in your kitchen and living room areas, circuits should run individually from separate power sources in order to prevent overloading.
- Changing weather. The use of window AC units and space heaters, which use massive amounts of power, can wreak havoc on your circuits and overload them. In fact, AC units require so much power to function that even the units by themselves can overload a circuit. As with other sources of overloads, running these units on a separate circuit and with their own source of power can help prevent a bigger problem.
- Old wiring. An emergency electrician is often called to address power overloads in older homes that have antiquated wiring, as this kind of overload is tough to diagnose and requires an electrician who is familiar with the way older homes are wired. Today’s homes are built to prevent problems like bathroom circuit overloads. In fact, new homes often include separate circuits for heavy-power usage rooms like the bathrooms, kitchen and family room areas.
