Circuit Breaker Replacement & Upgrading


Every year our homes become more laden with electronic devices that require more electricity for charging or operating purposes. The function of a circuit breaker is to manage the flow of electricity to devices and appliances plugged in throughout your home. When there is too much draw on a breaker, it will inevitably trip. It may be time to have it replaced.


Updating your circuit breakers can help maintain the capacity required to power or charge every electronic device in your home. Talk to our Abbotsford electricians at Premium Electric about updating the circuit breakers in your home. We service communities throughout the Fraser Valley including Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission and can be reached at 604-308-6195.


Evidence of Circuit Breaker Overload


Do your breakers constantly trip? Are they hot to touch? Are they on but not working?


Older breakers found in many homes may simply not keep up with demand. If your fuses are burning out on a regular basis then it may be time to replace your fuse with a circuit breaker. Keep up with the demand of your devices and have Premium Electric update your breakers to diminish the odds of bad circuit breaker tripping, fuse blowouts, or possibly fire.


The Advantages of Circuit Breaker Replacement


Updating and changing circuit breakers will lessen the potential for fire caused by breaker overburden but there are many other advantages as well:

  • There’s less risk of electrical surges due to a tripped breaker that could potentially damage electronic devices.
  • They minimize the potential for computer data loss when an electrical interruption occurs.
  • A consistent power supply maintains better connectivity with the outside world.
  • You can operate more electronic devices without breaker tripping or fuse burnouts.


Use A Professional Electrician


Replacing a circuit breaker panel or installing new breakers should only be done by a licensed electrician, a professional who understands the necessary code requirements. Trying to save money by attempting circuit breaker replacement on your own can be dangerous. Installing the wrong circuit breaker for your needs may not completely solve your breaker tripping or fuse burnout problems.


Improper circuit breaker installation can also pose a potential fire hazard and may cause electrical fluctuations that increase your risk of property damage or electrocution. Our Abbotsford electricians have the experience and skill required to determine if your breaker is what is causing the problem, or if there is another concern with your wiring system that needs to be addressed.
