You should have your homes panel inspected on a yearly basis for loose connections. Keep panel doors and box covers closed. Dust and moisture are two of the biggest enemies of electrical devices.
Electrical panel preventive maintenance is more cost effective than making repairs as components fail. Your electrical panel and its’ components are a very important part of your home. Usually they’re taken for granted, mostly due to being out of sight out of mind.
The assumption is they are maintenance free. Untrue, gone unchecked can cause service interruption and in extreme cases fire. Breakers and loose wires can cause arching and overheating thus causing additional damage and more costly to repair.
If you are regularly re-setting a breaker you most likely have a problem!
You could be over loading the circuit by having too many components plugged into one outlet! This should be avoided.
When you regularly reset the breaker it heats up thus causing wire damage and could cause a fire in extreme cases. This must be addressed and repaired to avoid more costly repairs.
A preventive maintenance on your homes electrical panel should be done at least every 3 years but is recommended on an annual basis.
