Circuit Breaker Replacements

Why are circuit breakers so important

Electricity, which is managed by circuit breakers, is probably the most important function of your home.

Circuit breakers handle a large electrical load, and as the years pass, that load becomes larger as we add more devices and appliances to our electrical grid.

A lot of times, we unconsciously add new appliances, computers, and other electrical devices without even pausing to think about what that’s doing to our electrical system.

How do I know if I need to replace my circuit breakers

The classic tell is if your breakers keep tripping all the time.

Other ways to tell is if you can’t even turn something on.

But overloaded circuits are not the sole reason to replace circuit breakers. With time, circuit breakers can start to go bad. Since there is no way to repair a faulty circuit breaker, your only option is to replace it.

If your circuit breaker feels hot or emits a burning smell, you should call a professional Winnipeg electrician to replace it immediately.
