Overheating Issues

Summer is a fun and lazy time for many of us. For our home electrical systems, summer is a busy, overwhelming time. Kids are home from school, the air conditioner runs all day, electrical devices are plugged in and TVs are running every night. All this electrical demand can overload and overheat electrical panels. There are a few ways to solve this problem.

You have to make sure your usage doesn’t exceed the amount of power your panel can hold. Your trusted electrician like Nipper Electric can help measure your load. You can also look into adding solar panels to offset the demand and lower power bills.
  • Track Electrical Use- Find the time when there is the highest demand on your panel. Cut back on unnecessary use during this time. Charge devices at night, run laundry during low usage times. This can also cut back on your power bill.
  • Check the Wiring-If you have aluminum wiring in your home, you may have some loose connections. This can be a serious problem. Loose connections can lead to electrical failure and house fires. It can also be a simple problem to fix. A reliable electrician like Nipper Electric can install connectors, pigtail aluminum wiring or rewire your home, depending on the extent of the problem.
  • Solar Power Overheating- The incredible amount of solar energy gathered during summer can occasionally lead to overheating, specifically in water heaters. The secret is really in the installation process. Make sure your solar panels are installed at the right angle and your solar system is able to store the right amount of solar power.
