Breaker & Panel Services in Carpentersville
Here to Make Your Home Safer & More Convenient!
Have you ever lost power in your home when you and other members of your family have been using several electrical devices at once, from a blender to a hair blow dryer? When these electrical issues occur, one of the common culprits is your service panel. This panel is composed of circuit breakers organized in series, controlling the amount of power that gets directed to different appliances.
Unfortunately, if your panel is too old and outdated, or your circuit breakers are malfunctioning, this can lead to several unpleasant consequences. Not only will you have to face the annoyance of repeatedly resetting your fuse box or panel, but an overloaded electrical system can cause dangerous shocks or even house fires. Reach out to our talented team at Amy Home Services for support with these critical issues.

Signs That You Need to Replace Your Circuit Breaker Panels
Issues in your circuit breaker panels are a serious problem that needs immediate attention. Waiting to repair or replace your breakers or panels could result in a dangerous electric shock, or even an electrical fire. The question many homeowners ask, however, is whether they need to replace their panels entirely, or whether they can just have them repaired. While we offer rapid, emergency repairs whenever you need them, it is important to consider a replacement if your breakers are old or have repeatedly experienced malfunctioning.
Some of the most common signs that your panels or breakers need to be replaced entirely include:
- Your breakers are constantly tripping.
- Your system currently is based on electrical fuses.
- The amp has been incorrectly wired by a different company.
- Plugging in certain appliances, or multiple appliances, trips the breaker.
- Your panel is suffering from rust corrosion.
- You often notice burning odors or smoke coming from the panel or breaker.
- The panel feels very hot to the touch.
- There are black spots or burned areas on the panel.
- Your lights often flicker or dim randomly.
- There are melted or frayed wires.
- The outlet has become discolored or corroded.
- You can hear a faint hissing or buzzing.
Providing Expert Upgrades for Your Panels
You may not have had your service panel for a long time but are surprised to discover that the breaker keeps tripping, or that your lights are flickering whenever you use another electrical appliance. If this is the case, you likely need to have your service panel upgraded. When these signs occur, what is usually happening is that your service panel does not have the right amp power available to operate appliances that use a lot of electricity, or it does not have enough energy to operate multiple appliances at the same time. Alternatively, there simply may not be the right number of open circuits to handle your requirements.
Reach out to our dedicated technicians at Amy Home Services so that we can carefully upgrade your service panel to provide you with the power you need to get on with daily life.
