Breaker Box Upgrades & Replacement in Broken Arrow, Tulsa & Owasso
Breaker Box Upgrade & Repair
Your home’s breaker box – which you may also know as a circuit breaker or electrical panel – is vital to keeping your electricity flowing. Usually located behind a metal panel or in a box outside your home, it can turn each individual electrical circuit in your home on or off. It also contains a main breaker that controls all of the circuits. Older homes have older breaker boxes, and in addition to the breakdowns you’d expect from aging electrical work, they can become a fire hazard if not maintained properly. When it’s time to repair your breaker box or replace it with a brand new one, call Hot Shot Electric! We’re Broken Arrow’s choice for breaker box upgrades and repairs.

Hot Shot Service Co. can provide breaker upgrades or repair that are up to code, provide improved safety and functionality.

Signs That It’s Time To Replace Your Breaker Box
Keeping your breaker box in good shape is a must. Aside from the inconvenience of losing your electricity, blown fuses and other electrical problems can lead to potentially catastrophic house fires. Although electrical problems aren’t exactly subtle, you might be missing out on the early signs of trouble with your breaker box. Keep an eye out for the following:
Circuit breakers are designed to trip whenever too much power is being pushed through them. If homeowners notice that their circuit breakers are tripping every time a certain appliance is turned on, it could signify that the breaker is starting to fail. Working with an experienced and licensed electrician can help determine if a single circuit is the cause or if the whole panel may need to be replaced.
If the lights in your home flicker regularly or the brightness levels are constantly different, there is a chance that your circuit breaker is not working as it should. While the issue may be tied to certain circuits or the lighting fixture in use, it is important to get an accurate diagnosis from an electrician. With this information, it will be much easier to replace or repair the circuit or fixture that is causing the problem.
Although circuit breakers are designed to last for many years, several homes still rely on dated technologies to power their home. If your circuit breaker has not been serviced in a decade or longer, there is a good chance that it should be checked by an electrician. In many cases, it will often need to be replaced with a safer electrical system that meets modern code standards.
Any time a burning odor is found near an electrical panel, homeowners should immediately reach out to a licensed and experienced electrician. When this smell is present, it could mean that there is a dangerous wiring problem or insulation issue that is causing the panel to overheat. When left alone, this problem can lead to a more serious electrical emergency or a fire.
If you struggle to get your oven to temperature or find your washer stopping mid-cycle, it may not be a problem with your appliances. Instead, it could mean that your circuit breaker is failing and not providing adequate or consistent power. Working with an electrician can help ensure that you do not waste your money on new appliances that will have the same problems.
