While breaker boxes don’t necessarily need to be replaced, there are a few instances in which replacement may be necessary. If your breaker box is more than 40 years old, contains outdated or damaged breakers or continues to trip circuits frequently, replacement may be the best option. Breaker boxes also need to be replaced if they’re not large enough to accommodate new circuits or additional electrical loads.
There most definitely are circuit breaker panel box requirements! In fact, electrical safety is one of the most important concerns when it comes to breaker boxes. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has a set of guidelines that must be followed in order for a breaker box to be considered safe.
- The box must be made of non-combustible material.
- There must be a way to prevent sparks from igniting any flammable materials nearby.
- All circuit breakers must be labeled so that they can be easily identified.
- There must be enough clearance around the box so that nothing can come into contact with it and cause an electrical shock.
We recommend that you don’t attempt to install an electrical outlet yourself. Working with electricity is inherently dangerous and should only be done by an electrician. If you need a new electrical outlet installed or an existing one replaced, you should call in a professional electrician. Not only does this protect your safety, but it also protects you from a rejected insurance claim in the case that you experience an electrical fire.
Yes, we can rewire a house without removing walls near Blanchard. We do this by using a fish tape to run the wire between the studs. First, we remove the faceplate from the wall and disconnect any wiring that’s currently in place. Next, we’ll use the fish tape to run the new wire between the studs, making sure to leave enough slack to easily connect the wires when we’re done.
