Breakers, Outlets & Circuits Installation by Cano Electric in DFW

The average lifespan of a breaker box is 60 years, but this can vary greatly based on the quality of the breakers and how much of a load the outlets & circuits have been asked to carry through the years. For those who have recently purchased a used home, as well as homeowners who have been in their current location for more than a decade, it is wise to have your breaker box inspected by a licensed electrician from Cano Electric to determine whether a replacement panel is needed.

Some of the parts of a breaker panel most prone to wear out prematurely include:

  • Circuit Breakers: These rocking switches act as safety devices to quickly shut off power to a circuit when there’s too much electricity flowing through it. When that happens, the breaker rocks to the off position and most homeowners would say the breaker for that zone has tripped . The majority of circuit breakers in your breaker box are single-pole breakers, meaning they can handle 120 volts of power and are either 15 or 20 amps.

  • Service Disconnect Switch: This is the place where the electricity that powers your home comes into the electrical panel. The service disconnect sometimes called the main breaker looks like a larger version of a circuit breaker and is usually found at the very top or bottom of the breaker box. It can handle 100 to 200 amps. In case of emergency, this is where you can turn off power to your entire home by rocking the switch to the off position.
  • Expansion Slots: These are empty slots within the breaker box that exist to accommodate extra circuit breakers when a licensed electrician adds additional circuits to your home. These are used to accommodate a room addition or other home improvements that increase your electrical load.

Most homes have 100 or 200-amp breaker boxes, with the numbers referring to the amount of electricity the panel can handle. Most newer homes opt for the larger size. If you have a 100-amp box and need more circuits, you can either add a sub-panel or upgrade to the larger 200-amp breaker box.
