Making Sure the Breakers Don’t Break!
Every Little Elm home is filled with systems and devices that require special attention. The electrical panel, which is sometimes also called a breaker box, is one small but powerful example. Despite its compact size, the electric panel is one of the mightiest pieces of equipment in a house.
All of your electricity passes through the breaker system to keep your home running smoothly. If any home equipment uses excessive power, it can overload the home, and power will stop working. That’s when Milestone can step in and help.

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.

While every homeowner should know the basics of how electrical panels work, they should not try to work on them. That is a job that experienced Electricians must do because they have the training to complete projects efficiently and safely. Our Technicians inspect home electrical systems and then discuss findings with homeowners.
Some situations require emergency repairs, while other times the work can be put off until a later time. As Technicians evaluate electrical systems, they determine what conditions they are in and how safe they are. Some homes require a lot of work, while others are in excellent condition. Our Electricians discuss those issues with customers, explain the condition of their electrical systems, and recommend the best options.
Replacing Electric Panels
Electricians will do everything they can to make repairs when possible, but there are times when the only solution is to replace the breaker box. Technicians generally recommend replacement when there is no other option that can guarantee a safe result.
The most common reasons that Electricians suggest replacing electric panels are:
Panels are more than 15 years old. If homeowners aren’t sure of the age, the general rule is that a breaker box is usually as old as the home.
There is visible corrosion anywhere on the panel or panel cover.
There are several different breaker brands installed. Breakers in different colors or with different manufacturers’ labels are a sign of this issue.
There are signs of rust anywhere on a panel.
Homeowners can check their brand, but it is important to be careful when dealing with a panel, and never take the cover off without a licensed Electrician being present.
However, it is generally safe to search for the manufacturer by:
Looking at the panel cover
Inspecting one of the breakers
Examining the inside of the panel door
Looking at the (UL) tag
Any time a homeowner has a question about their electric panel, it is best to call an Electrician. Milestone’s friendly Technicians are always glad to help.
