Making Sure the Breakers Don’t Break!
Every home in Fairview is equipped with an electrical panel, sometimes referred to as a breaker box. These small, but very important, pieces of equipment are often located in difficult-to-reach places. That doesn’t mean the best approach to maintaining them is to assume that since they’re out of sight, it’s safe to keep them out of mind.
Every light, appliance, and electronic device in your home pulls power through the breaker box. If it malfunctions, one or more areas of your home may be left without power until the problem is resolved. Unfortunately, older electrical panels aren’t always able to handle the power draw created by modern life, and even one piece of oversized electrical equipment can overload them to the point where they stop working.
Most homeowners know to check the breaker box when the power goes out to a certain area of the home. However, few have the training and expertise to identify the underlying problems causing tripped circuit breakers. That’s where Milestone comes in. Our expert Electricians have all the training, experience, and expertise required to identify and resolve any breaker box problem.

What Is the Circuit Breaker in Your Home?
Every home has a breaker box or panel, that is the heart of the electrical system. It ensures that energy is being used correctly throughout the home. A good panel can protect against hazards and serious damage. Electric panels also have switches connected to a special function, and the switches can be turned on and off.
Depending on when your home was built, a panel could be in various places. In newer homes, it’s usually in a garage or outside. Panels in older homes might be in a closet or utility room. Regardless of location, we recommend that you keep the area easily accessible. There should be no less than three feet of clearance around it. It’s important to know where your panel is and understand how to operate it if there is an emergency.
The panel controls electricity coming into the home from the utility company. Electrical Panels have breakers that are attached to circuits, and they regulate the amount of electricity. When a problem like an overloaded circuit occurs, the breaker trips and stops electricity from flowing to the circuit. Once the source problem is solved, the breaker can be turned back on.
Power To Every Room
It’s impossible to overstate the importance of keeping electricity running smoothly to every room in modern homes. Even minor hiccups such as lights that flash out or refrigerators that stop running can cause an incredible amount of stress for homeowners and their families. Not to worry, though. Milestone can send out an Electrician the same day to resolve electrical panel problems.
Not all homeowners know how to identify electrical panel problems, or how to tell minor issues from serious safety hazards. While it’s fine to flip the occasionally tripped circuit breaker back on without calling for professional help, anything that requires evaluating and repairing the wiring or the panel itself should be left to the professionals. If you notice that your breakers are hot to the touch, you see frayed wires, or you notice an unpleasant burning smell when you head to the electrical panel to resolve seemingly minor problems, those are red flags that something is seriously wrong.
Let Milestone Help You!
Only licensed Electricians can provide electrical panel repairs and replacements.

Every modern house has a breaker box, but many residents aren’t even aware that they are there. They operate largely in the background, ensuring that the power gets to where it needs to go safely. Each breaker in the panel has a switch that can be turned on and off. When the circuit gets overloaded, the switch flips, and power to the entire area is restricted.
Let Milestone ‘Fix it in a Flash' for You!
Circuit overloads often occur when residents plug in too many appliances and electronics, especially in older homes that aren’t equipped with high-powered breaker boxes. This problem can be frustrating, but it means that at least on some level, the electrical panel is functioning as intended. It’s turning off the power to the affected area before it can cause any damage.
Homeowners just flip the breaker and move on, though, especially if this problem comes up all the time, and they definitely shouldn’t try to resolve the problem alone. While it’s good for residents to have a basic understanding of where their electrical panels are located, how they work, and what signs to look out for that the panels may not be operating as intended, it’s never safe to attempt DIY electrical repairs.
