Circuit Breaker Keep Shutting Off? Trust a Residential Electrician for Your Service Panel Upgrades

The vast majority of electrical problems that most Galveston homeowners come to us for are related to power outages.

Why do you think that is?

Because the vast majority of Galveston homes don’t have the right electrical infrastructure to keep up with the power demands of today’s appliances.

That’s sort of a funny concept. Because, as we all know, the appliances and technologies of today are much more energy efficient than they were 40 years ago. Anybody who’s been zapped by an improperly grounded fridge knows that some things weren’t better in the ‘good old days’.

But the issue is that suddenly households have a lot more of these efficient appliances. A 20% reduction in energy use doesn’t matter much when you’ve installed six new cooking gadgets into a kitchen. And since I’d personally rather die than give up my Instant Pot or KitchenAid mixer, it looks like my inner chef’s gain is my energy bill’s loss.

So what is the average Galveston homeowner to do when the screens that provide so much entertainment also draw so much juice from the grid their power turns off? The answer is simple. Invest in a circuit breaker upgrade.

200-Amp Circuit Breakers Are the Way of the Future

Just as most people aren’t using fuseboxes anymore, and for good reason, we’ll be saying the same thing about 100-amp circuit breakers in five years. The ‘90s have come and gone. You aren’t holding onto your old IBM personal computer for nostalgic reasons, so why haven’t you replaced your circuit breaker in 20 years?

The fact of the matter is that demands for electricity in Galveston aren’t going down anytime soon. And if electric cars become a thing, your home’s power consumption is guaranteed to increase. Why not add value to your home and prevent nasty power outages by asking your residential electrician to install a new 200-amp circuit breaker panel?

The Benefits, Straight Up

Listen, Galveston’s real estate market isn’t as red-hot as, say, San Francisco’s, but people want to move to this area all the time. And odds are, after the kids move out, you won’t want to stay in your current house forever.

There are no sweeter words to a home buyer’s ear than “we recently redid the electrical work.” Kitchen and bath renovations may get all the attention, flashy as they are, but they aren’t worth anything if your home doesn’t have solid foundations. I mean literal foundation, but also good electrical wiring, plumbing, solid roofing. You know, the basics.

Installing a 200-amp circuit breaker in your home won’t spark a bidding war. But it will convince potential buyers they’re investing in something that won’t bite them after the paperwork is signed. That guarantee? It’s worth its weight in gold.

That isn’t the only way service panel upgrades can save you money. See about installing one of the new generation of electrical economizers and you could see your home power bill drop by 20% month after month.

In many instances, an electrician winds up doing maintenance and repairs that your homeowners insurance will cover. In those cases, your insurer will demand a trained and licensed home electrician. When it comes to getting the job done right and safely, a residential electrician from Christensen Electric is what you need.
