With improvements in technology, our homes consume more electricity than ever before. With this higher demand for electricity, you may find that the circuit breakers in your home are inadequate.

Inadequate circuit breakers will begin to trip or shut off power when the demand is too much for the circuit. Lake Norman Electric can provide Circuit Breaker Replacement to upgrade your electrical system.

Addionally, circuit breakers that trip frequently can wear out over time. Circuit breakers that are not properly maintained will not be able to protect your home from power surges, and can develop a severe risk of arcing or faulting. Arcing or faulting can cause fatal electric shocks or electrical fires.

Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters or AFCI’s can eliminate the risk of arcing. AFCI is a type of circuit breaker that recognizes fire hazards and shuts down the power to your home immediately. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has reported that a majority of home fire related damage comes from homes where AFCI circuit breakers have not been installed. They perform like a conventional circuit breaker but additionally protect against erratic current caused by arcing.
