Did you know the flow of electricity creates heat? When you have a heavy load such as a space heater, air conditioner, pool heater, etc., all the connections in that circuit will heat up causing them to expand. (You remember high school physics, right?) After many cycles of heating (expansion) and cooling (contraction) the lugs inside of your electrical equipment can loosen. As these lugs loosen it makes it harder for the electricity to pass through (called resistance) causing even more heat. At some point the heat gets great enough that it starts to burn the insulation off of the wire. This could have been prevented if the person who installed this would have applied the proper amount of torque when the wiring was installed. Hiring the cheapest "electrician" doesn't always save you money.

If you suspect you have an electrical problem in your home or business, don't hesitate to give us a call. The longer you wait, the more damage the heat can cause.

I had a customer call complaining that most of the electricity in his house had stopped working. Of course it happened just as this cold spell hit and the furnace was one of the items not working. I came out that day (all the way to KCMO) and this is what I found. This is the main breaker. As you can see, one side had been arcing and completely burned the case of the breaker itself. Luckily the panel was fine and I was able to simply replace the faulty breaker, restoring power and heat. Crisis averted.
