Breaker Panel Repairs
The electrical panel (you may know it as a breaker panel or distribution board) in your home tends to be mostly ignored. Left alone, just a bit of electrical nonsense located on a wall somewhere. That is, until something goes awfully wrong with the electricity in your home. Then you may find yourself in front of a series of switches (breakers) you’re unfamiliar with, flipping them willy-nilly to see if you can fix the issue.
Don’t do that! Electricity is finicky, and you may create bigger problems than the ones that previously existed. Not to mention, electricity is nothing to fuss with if you lack an electrician’s background. It can be very dangerous, both for you personally and your home. Leave your electrical panel repairs to the certified professional at Wingate Electrical! We provide the best service in the industry, and back up our unmatched skill with industry-leading technology.

Signs You Need Electrical Panel Repairs
Though breakers generally last quite a while, eventually time will have its way and your panel’s components will begin to wear out. Keep an eye out for these signs that you may need electrical panel repair:
- Frequent breaker flipping. An occasional flip due to too many appliances on a single breaker isn’t anything to be concerned with. But if your breakers begin flipping very frequently (and nothing has changed in your home’s electricity), it is likely a sign your breakers are wearing out.
- Breakers won’t stay reset. After your breaker flips, your impulse is to naturally flip it back on. And rightfully so, since that’s what they’re for! But, if the breaker refuses to stay active (kicking back off within a minute or so) it’s a good sign you need some replacements or repair.
- Acrid, burning or ‘ozone’ smells. If you evernote an odd smell, signs of charring or any indication that your panel is burning, melting or overheating, call a professional right away. These signs are very serious, and left alone could spell an electrical fire with a quickness.
