While not every homeowner is completely familiar with the warning signs of a failing or ailing panel, they’re actually quite easy to pick out. Panel problems may be caused by a wide array of complications, but they tend to always exhibit a specific set of signs. Keep an eye out for these:
- Frequent breaker tripping. When breakers trip often it’s a clear indication that either your circuit is being overloaded by too many appliances, or the panel is experiencing some form of damage or malfunction.
- Breakers refusing to engage. Breakers tend to last a good long while, but they’re not immune to wear and damage. This typically requires breaker replacement, which John Goudie Electric can handle in no time.
- Flickering lights. Do your lights flicker frequently, and especially when heavy appliances in the home (HVAC, microwaves, hair dryers, etc.) are engaged? If so, either the wiring in your home or your panel needs to be looked at.
- Appliances and lights wearing out. Do you find yourself replacing light bulbs far too often? This usually means an overload of supply, which is often related to panels and subpanels.
- Outlet covers look burned. Keep watch for outlet covers that are singed, or covered in blackish or brown spots. You may need either wiring or panel services.
- Pungent, melted plastic odors. Smelling burnt wiring or other signs of electrical fire is considered an absolute emergency. Call on professionals immediately, and if safe to do so shut off your home’s electrical panel until help arrives.
I was thrilled with their efficiency and customer service. He arrived the same day, identified the problem quickly and after the part I needed came in he was back right away to install. They even sent me a thank you for my business card! This is a company with superior electrical skills and top-notch customer service.M T
