Did you Know Upgraded Circuit Breakers Upgrade your Appliances Performance?
January 12, 2017
The appliances in your home are reliant upon the power that comes from your electrical system. Regulating that power supply is partially the responsibility of your circuit breakers. If they malfunction in any way, you’re at risk of power surges or inadequate electricity flow going to your appliances, both situations that will cause them to function improperly. Regular circuit breaker upgrades can prevent any of this from happening. That’s where we come in. The technicians at Tri Cities Best Electric and Service can make sure that your circuit breakers, and subsequently your appliances, always work properly.
Most homeowners view their circuit breaker panel as a defense mechanism against shorts and surges. What they don’t realize is that each time a circuit is tripped or a fuse is blown, an appliance or electronic device that is running at that time is affected. Dishwashers and washer machines can overflow and cause flood damage. Refrigerators grind to a halt and computers shut off if they’re the plug-in, desk-top variety. Even your phone can be affected. Power disruption on any of these devices can result in problems.
In older homes, fuse repair and replacement was a constant chore. The circuit breaker panel was invented to eliminate that problem, but they are not infallible and they don’t last forever. Some of the earlier models are now obsolete or have been proven defective over time. It’s our job as your electrician to stay current on these issues, but we can’t impart that information to you unless you call us. Like any other system in your home, your electrical system should be inspected regularly. If you haven’t done that in a while, make the phone call today and we’ll come check things out.
If you are planning on building any new additions, or remodeling your bathroom or kitchen, have your circuit breaker panel checked first. Power requirements for new appliances and electronic devices are different than they were ten or twenty years ago. The same can be said for any spa lighting or landscape lighting you might want to have installed. Your home may not be wired properly to handle it. Call Tri Cities Best Electric and Service before you have the work done and we’ll make sure your home meets the electrical standards necessary for those new additions, both indoor and out.
