Circuit Breaker Repairs & Replacement
No matter where you live, a newer condo, or an older house, you have probably had electrical panel issues at some point or another. A blown fuse here, a tripped breaker there, these things happen. And when they do, it’s good to know there is a reputable electric contractor who can help.
Call Maitz Home Services for electric panel repairs and replacements by NATE-certified technicians with more than forty years of experience.
Some indications that your circuit box needs to be checked by a licensed technician are:
- Burnt smell
- Using too many electrical cords
- Burnt odor
- Improper installation
- Normal wear and tear
- Flickering lights
If the lights in your house flicker, this is a sign your home is due for a breaker panel upgrade.
All service panel issues should only be diagnosed and repaired by a licensed electrician.
Electrical Panel Upgrades
An electrical panel upgrade is not a DIY weekend project. This means that you should always hire a licensed electrician for the job. This will also ensure that the job is completed correctly and up to code.
If you live in an older house with the original electrical wiring, it may be time for an electrical panel replacement or a total upgrade. Old electric panels can overload circuits, especially if they are over 25 years old. Below are a few hints you might be needing an electrical panel expert to check things out:
- Breaker switches are rusty & corroded.
- Devices operate at less than full power.
- Odd sounds coming from the panel box
- No GFCI outlets in the home
Give us a call to discuss your electrical panel needs and to determine if a panel upgrade is in store for your home.

Fuses or Circuit Breakers – What’s the Difference?
Both fuses and circuit breakers are meant to shield electrical circuits by interrupting overloads that cause fires. They both work in the same way, yet differently. A fuse will melt when overheated, whereas circuit breakers have an internal switch mechanism that will automatically trip when it senses a surge of electricity.
Fuses are less expensive and easier to find. They react quickly to overloading and must be replaced when blown, whereas a circuit breaker only needs to be reset. Maitz Home Services will install the right fuse or breakers, so you don’t have to worry about getting it wrong.
