Breaker & Fuse Services in Birmingham
Keep Your Family Safe with Breaker & Fuse Repair
While most homes have circuit breaker boxes, older homes may rely on fuses. Either way, breakers and fuses are essential to shutting down a circuit when it is overloaded. This shut-down can prevent fires or other catastrophes. Homes built in the 1960’s and earlier may have fuse boxes instead of circuit breakers. Blown fuses can happen because modern appliances require higher amp levels than fuse boxes can handle. If you frequently struggle with blown fuses, a Birmingham electrician from Armstrong Electrical Contractors can help. We can examine your fuse box and let you know how to upgrade it safely.
Newer homes have breakers and every homeowner has had to readjust a breaker when it trips. This is as simple as flipping a switch at the breaker box. However, if you constantly have to flip the breakers to reset them, you may have a safety problem. Our experienced electricians can inspect your breaker box and let you know if it is overloaded or if you need to update it.
A breaker or fuse box that isn’t in good repair can cause catastrophic problems. Stay safe by contacting the experts at Armstrong Electrical Contractors at (205) 379-8163.
How to Know Your Fuses or Breakers Need Repair
Fuses that blow need to be replaced and if this happens frequently, you will spend a lot getting repairs. It may be a good idea to contact an electrician in Birmingham to upgrade your wiring and electrical box. A circuit breaker won’t degrade but it may develop a loose connection or be overloaded with appliances.
Signs your circuit breaker or wiring needs repair include:
- If you lose power to many appliances or lights if a single breaker loses power
- If resetting the circuit breaker switch does not restore power
- If circuits lose power frequently
If you notice these problems in your home, don’t put off calling the Birmingham electrical professionals at Armstrong Electrical Contractors. You do not want to ignore an issue until it becomes a burnt-out circuit or a fire.
