Breakers and Fuses
Repairing Circuit Breakers & Fuses in Houma & Thibodaux
When they are working properly, your circuit breakers and fuses help to prevent electrical shocks, sparks and fires. If you are having any type of issues, our electricians can provide you with a solution for your Houma or Thibodaux home. Our top priority is to serve your electrical needs and improve the safety of your home.
Professional Electricians for Your Breaker or Fuse
The main difference between a breaker and a fuse is the way each interrupts an electricity flow. A breaker uses a spring-loaded part that trips the circuit when it becomes overloaded. Because they can be manually switched back, breakers do not have a limit on how many times they can be tripped.
A fuse uses a strip of metal that is melted when it becomes overloaded. These are most often seen in older homes and have to be replaced once they are blown.
Our team can handle all types of breaker and fuse repairs, including:
There are many signs that your circuit breakers or fuses need to be repaired or replaced. The most obvious is breakers that are frequently tripping. If you have noticed any strange smells, especially around your breaker box, or unusual noises inside the panel, it may be time for professional repair.
