Preventing Electrical Circuit Overload

Electrical circuit overload should be avoided, so understanding what can cause the problem and how to prevent it will help you be prepared. Electrical overloads happen when more electricity is transferred across an electrical wire than its circuit can handle. For example, plugging a computer into the same outlet that a hair dryer is plugged into may result in the circuit not having enough amperage for both devices. In this scenario, the circuit breaker will trip and cut power to both devices. To avoid this hassle, your electrical wiring and outlets should be upgraded to ensure they have enough capacity for all your electrical demands. Mr. Electric of Northwest Houston offers circuit breaker replacement for residents of Houston, Tomball, and Conroe, TX.

When to Replace Your Circuit Breakers

We want to educate you about when you might need to upgrade your circuits. There are many reasons why Texans should consider replacing their circuit breakers, including:

  • Overloaded Outlets – If you find yourself using too many power strips or extension cords, consider upgrading. We can ensure you have enough outlets to support your devices if you experience frequent circuit breaker tripping.
  • Security Systems – Make sure you have enough power to keep your home or business safe with a new security system that will need to be connected to your electrical system.
  • Specialty Lighting – If you’re considering adding new lighting, we can ensure your new lights are connected to your circuit properly.
  • Appliances – Adding a freezer or second refrigerator to your garage means you’ll need to ensure your circuits and outlets can handle the job.
  • Additional Outdoor Electricity – Adding landscape lighting, a swimming pool, or a sprinkler system requires advanced electrical planning.
  • Ceiling Fans – Turn your ceiling fan off and leave the light fixture on by flipping a switch. This task often requires upgrading your circuits.
  • Emergency Generators – Buying an emergency generator to ensure you have power during a blackout means you’ll need dedicated sub-panels.
  • Home Entertainment Centers – Plugging all the devices in your home entertainment center into the same outlet can cause a problem if your home has outdated circuits.
  • Home Office Equipment – Working from home means you’ll need plenty of power outlets to keep all your equipment working safely.
  • Satellite or Cable TV – Upgrading your circuits will allow you to add cable or satellite televisions to all your bedrooms.
  • Workshops or Garages – Make the most of your space by ensuring you have all the outlets you need.
  • Home Efficiency Upgrades – Our professionals can install solar water heaters, solar panels, or electric vehicle charging stations to help you reduce energy costs and do your part for the environment.
