Distribution Panel Inspection, Tune-up, and Repairs in River Oaks
Your home’s distribution panel, which is also commonly referred to as a breaker panel, divides all the electricity that comes from your energy provider to the various lights, appliances, and outlets around your home, much like the name suggests. “Breaker panel” is also accurate because it will turn power off to appliances or areas of your home that are drawing unsafe amounts of electricity. As breaker panels age, components may begin to short-circuit leading to a panel that turns power off when it’s not supposed to, or one that doesn’t trip in the case of an electrical overload. Some older panels have been recalled because they are unsuitable for distributing electricity and protecting your home. If your home still uses an electrical panel built before 1980, you may want to check to ensure it hasn’t been recalled. If it turns out that your home has an outdated or recalled panel, you should consider having it replaced with a safe distribution panel as soon as possible.
For historic homes built in the last century, it is recommended that an annual breaker panel inspection be performed to prevent any possible electrical mishaps before they turn dangerous. We recommend that all homeowners know what kind of electrical panel they have so that we can better service their home on the first visit. Your electrical panel may be outdated or failing if you’re experiencing lights that no longer work or outlets that have ceased to function. Remember: It is much more cost-effective to replace an aging panel than it is to recover from an electrical fire.
Make sure your distribution panel is safe and up-to-date with an inspection from licensed and insured electricians in your area. To schedule a consultation, give us a call at 713-730-2525.
Rewiring Out-of-Date Electrical Systems in River Oaks Homes
Much like contemporary electrical panels, electrical wiring systems have a few safety features built into their design. Since the 70s, residential electrical wires have been made of copper wiring, which is conductive enough to move electrical currents, but resistant enough to ensure that they don’t overheat. Another wiring safety feature that came later is PVC insulation that is more durable and long-lasting than the plastic insulation that was standard before the 90s.
Older homes may have an outdated wiring system like knob-and-tube wiring, aluminum insulation, or non-copper wires. Rodents can also interfere with a home’s wiring system from within the walls. These wiring methods and little pests can lead to higher electric bills, outages, and in some cases may even lead to sparks and fires.
If you are experiencing electrical issues in your home like flickering lights, outlets that don’t work, or hear strange buzzing sounds from within your wall, call John Moore to prevent a potentially dangerous problem.
