The breaker panel has many names like electrical panel, circuit breaker panel, service panel, and more. But no matter what it is called, the critical role it plays in protecting your home and allowing electricity to flow safely is the same. That’s why you need highly trained electricians to ensure that your system is operating safely and efficiently. As a licensed and insured electrician, you can count on us for reliable and affordable replacement or new breaker panel installation in St George or Washington County.
While your electrical panel takes up next to no room and is often stashed away out of sight and installed in a closet or garage wall, it is one of the most essential parts of your electrical system.
A properly functioning circuit breaker panel will interrupt the flow of excess electricity, protecting your property from electrical fires that start when too much electricity is flowing. While it may be annoying when a circuit breaker trips and you need to reset it, the alternative is excess electricity overheating the wiring or throwing off sparks that can create property-destroying fires.
Also, your electrical panel in St. George makes it easy to turn off the flow of electricity to the part of the house where you are having work done or if an area has become damaged. That way, you can more easily protect yourself with the control the breaker panel provides.
Along with control, most modern electrical panels allow for flexibility in setting up your home’s electrical system. Say you need a new dedicated circuit to run your new hot tub or need to set up a new workstation that has a high-power draw. It is easy enough for our electricians to set up a dedicated circuit on the electrical panel and run the appropriate wiring.

However, electrical work, especially installing the critical control point of your home, is best done by professionals.
Our electricians can perform electrical panel installations as well as wire your home with your desired number of dedicated circuits, outlets, light fixtures, and all other aspects of your home’s electrical system. Depending on the size of your home and electrical needs, our electricians can recommend the right electrical panel to be installed.
Along with the electrical panel itself, our electricians can provide maintenance to the circuit breakers that are part of the panel. Modern circuit breakers shouldn’t require as much maintenance as a fuse-based electrical panel would, but there are signs you can look for to see if your circuit breakers require maintenance or replacement.

A circuit breaker that trips often may be an indicator that you have too many things trying to draw power from the same circuit. Or it might be an indicator that the breaker is failing and needs replacement. If you can lower the number of devices drawing power and the breaker is still being tripped, it’s time to contact us for circuit breaker replacement in St. George or Washington County. replace your circuit breaker in St. George.
If you see clear damage from the switch being broken or the breaker is scorched or something similar, it is critical that you have the breaker replaced quickly to prevent electrical fires.
When a circuit breaker is worn out, it generally will not stay on and will turn off even when there isn’t an electrical overdraw. To correct this, you can have one of our electricians replace the worn-out breaker.
Often, breakers are replaced one at a time, and new ones are added to the panel as new dedicated circuits are installed. So, you can end up with a variety of circuit breakers of different ages and need to replace one or more older breakers.
