Inspection & Evaluation
Regular inspections and evaluations of your fuse box and circuit breaker are essential to identify any potential issues before they escalate. Our team of skilled electricians are trained to assess the condition of your electrical panels, ensuring that they are functioning correctly and up to code. During our thorough inspections, we look for signs of wear and tear, exposed wiring, or any other issues that may compromise the integrity of your electrical system. By catching problems early on, we can save you from costly repairs and potential electrical fires.

Circuit Breaker Repair & ReplacementCircuit breakers are designed to interrupt the current flow when an electrical overload or short circuit occurs. However, they can wear out over time due to the repeated magnetic forces they experience during normal operation. If you experience frequent trips or suspect that your circuit breaker panel is not functioning correctly, our technicians can diagnose the issue and perform necessary repairs or replacements. We offer a wide range of circuit breakers, including molded case circuit breakers, to ensure that your home’s electrical system remains safe and efficient.
Types of Circuit BreakersThere are several types of circuit breakers, each designed for specific applications and electrical systems. Here are the most common types:
- Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs): MCBs are commonly used in residential and commercial buildings. They are designed to protect against overcurrents and short circuits and come in various ampere ratings.
- Molded Case Circuit Breakers (MCCBs): MCCBs are larger and more robust than MCBs. They are often used in industrial settings and can handle higher current ratings. A molded case circuit breaker is designed to protect against overloads, short circuits, and ground faults.
- Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs): GFCIs are designed to protect against ground faults, which occur when electrical current flows along an unintended path, such as through water or a person. They are commonly used in bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor outlets to prevent electrical shocks.
- Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs): AFCIs are designed to detect and prevent electrical arcs, which can cause fires. They are commonly used in bedrooms and living areas to enhance fire safety.
- Residual Current Circuit Breakers (RCCBs): RCCBs, also known as residual current devices (RCDs), are used to protect against ground faults by monitoring the difference between incoming and outgoing currents. They are often used in conjunction with MCCBs or MCBs for added safety.
- High-Voltage Circuit Breakers: These circuit breakers are used in high-voltage electrical systems, such as those found in power distribution networks and industrial facilities. They are designed to handle extremely high currents and voltages.
- Medium Voltage Circuit Breakers: Medium voltage circuit breakers are used in medium-voltage power systems, typically ranging from 1 kV to 72 kV. They are essential for protecting and controlling electrical distribution at this voltage level.
- Low Voltage Circuit Breakers: Low voltage circuit breakers are commonly used in residential and commercial electrical systems. They come in various types, including MCBs and MCCBs, to protect against overloads and short circuits.
- Air Circuit Breakers (ACBs): ACBs use air as an insulating and arc-quenching medium. They are often used in industrial settings for high-power applications.
- Oil Circuit Breakers: Oil circuit breakers use oil as an arc-quenching medium. They are primarily used in high-voltage applications and are known for their ability to interrupt high currents.
- Vacuum Circuit Breakers: Vacuum circuit breakers use a vacuum as an insulating and arc-quenching medium. They are often used in medium-voltage applications and are known for their reliability and quick response.
- Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) Circuit Breakers: SF6 circuit breakers use sulfur hexafluoride gas as an insulating medium. They are commonly used in high-voltage applications due to their excellent insulating properties.
Routine MaintenancePreventative maintenance is key to ensuring the longevity and reliability of your electrical panels. Our routine maintenance services include tightening connections, cleaning electrical panels, and conducting thorough inspections to catch potential problems early. Regular maintenance not only prevents unexpected outages but also saves you money in the long run by extending the lifespan of your electrical system.
