Frequently Asked Questions
Are LED lights better than incandescent?
Do I need to replace my electrical panel?
The main reason for electrical panel installation is that your existing model is too old and doesn’t meet your current electricity needs. In this case, it does not matter if it breaks, but when. Replacing it sooner rather than later makes your home safer and can save you money in the long run. Electrical code updates may require a new circuit panel, or perhaps you’ve decided to convert your home from gas appliances to electric ones — in which case you’ll need another electrical service panel to run all those appliances. Unsure? Schedule an in-home visit with MK Electric.
What’s the difference between a blown fuse and a blown circuit breaker?
When the electrical current that passes through a fuse exceeds the limit, it burns a hole in the thin metal strip. This stops the flow of current, and it means you have blown a fuse. Fuses need to be replaced (not reset).
However, when the electrical current exceeds the limit through a circuit breaker, the breaker trip setting opens to stop the current flow. Then, breakers are re-settable by flipping the handle on the face of the breaker.
What is a GFCI?
You may have seen an electrical outlet with a “test” and “reset” button in the middle – this is a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter). It automatically shuts off an electrical circuit when it detects that the current isn’t flowing correctly. It’s also used to reduce the risk of electrical shock from a receptacle located in damp locations and/or countertop areas.
