Every spring you paint your house, check your roof and look over your plumbing issues. It’s not that often that you pull the outlets are your walls and check the wiring behind the outlet to see if it’s OK. It’s not very often that you take the screws out of your panel board and check to make sure that all your breaker connections are tight and in good condition.

Most electrical issues occur at the beginning point of your electrical connection the panel board. Often times the connections to your breakers or your main busbars become loose and begin to get hot. Electrical wires commonly vibrate due to the nature of electric being delivered to your home at 60 cps. These vibrations can cause screws to come loose overtime and begin to overheat. This overheating causes the breakers to frequently trip on nuisance because breakers operate and tripped on heat. So the connections must remain tight in order to function properly. This is not only the case with your breaker panel but also the case with every connection electrical system from light fixtures to switches and outlets
