If you have ever experienced circuit breaker tripping untimely, you know the value of having an electrician to come over and help you!
Electrical panel is installed to receive electric current from utility company and circuit breaker (or fuse) is placed in the panel to protect you, your appliances and your property from electric hazards by breaking the circuit that is pulling too much electric current towards a single appliance.
If the tripping has become regular, there is a fault in your circuit and the fuse is just doing its job of cutting the flow of electricity to cool the wires and protect you from a possible fire. If there are too much noises or heat coming from the panel and if you can smell burning odor, you should call for inspection immediately!
You may need to install an arc fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) or ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) for proper protection as they are the more modern version of circuit breakers or you may need to upgrade your electric panel all together!
At Fairfax Mechanical we install and repair electric panels and circuit breakers. We offer our honest advice on available types and brands so you can make an informed decision. With our pre-scheduled maintenance program, you can feel safe that your electric panel and circuits are running properly.

It is a simple and easy appliance with moderate power consumption that cools the air in summer and circulates and distributes hot air in the winter.

We, at Fairfax Mechanical, offer our electrical services to both residential and commercial properties with equal level of quality and professionalism. We install, repair and maintain electrical panels, circuits and appliances according to the needs of each customer.
Residential buildings are generally smaller with lower number of appliances which requires lower voltage. Lighting is often distributed in wider distances and the cooling / heating system is compact. Residential panels and circuit breakers are built to handle certain amount of electrical current and appropriate protection.
On the other hand, commercial properties are often loaded with office equipment, large number of lighting and central air conditioning that consumes high level of electricity; therefore, safety measures are different in order to prevent electrical hazards. Commercial panels and circuit breakers can handle stronger electrical current and provide required protection.
We can help you choose from available electrical features and brands. We also offer maintenance programs to provide you with the peace of mind that everything is under control but if emergency happened, we are there for you 24/7 to take care of the repair.
