Here’s an electrical repair we’d like to discuss that should only be done by a licensed electrician – the main breaker replacement. The main breaker is essential to disconnecting power to the circuit breaker panel. Therefore it manages the most amperage and can shut off power to the entire house. Usually, the individual circuit breakers will shut off first, so it can be rare that the main breaker shuts off. Therefore, if you have problems with the main breaker and think you need a main breaker replacement, chances are the issues could be significant. In addition, there may be more causes that should be investigated and diagnosed by a licensed electrician.
The main breaker handles a significant load demand for your home. If you find your home needing a main breaker replacement, there could be underlying problems best inspected by a licensed electrician with knowledge of how the system works and where the issues could be. And as always, all electrical repairs, including a main breaker replacement, could be dangerous and cause damage to the home and put your family at risk.
