What is a Double Tapped Breaker & Why They Are at Risk of Electrical Fires

Double tapped breakers, also known as double lugged or twin breakers, refer to a situation where two electrical wires are connected to a single breaker terminal in an electrical panel. This is dangerous because over time those wires could arc causing a short or even worse, a fire. There are some circuit breakers designed to hold 2 wires however, this may still not be a wise decision. Consult with a licensed electrician to determine the best way to fix double tapped breakers.

This practice is considered a code violation in most jurisdictions and poses several risks, including the potential for electrical fires.

Here’s why double tapped breakers are at risk:

If you are in need of double tapped breaker repair in your Southeast Florida home, you shouldn’t delay. With a problem like this, your home electrical systems are likely to malfunction, and you are at risk of an electrical fire. Find a local licensed electrician who can perform your double tapped breaker repair the right way.

Get Experienced and Expert Repairs

A double tapped breaker repair can be a complicated job. And if it is not done correctly, the problem is far from fixed. Only choose to work with an electrician that has performed this exact type of repair dozens, ideally hundreds of times before. That way you can be confident that the work is being performed to the highest standards, and that your electrical systems are now safe and stable.

Fair and Transparent Pricing

Just because you need a double tapped breaker repair doesn’t mean your electrician has the right to gouge you. Before any work starts, you should get a quote for the cost of repairs that includes labor, materials, and any other expenses. The contractor should then stick to that quote no matter how complicated the repair turns out to be.

Emergency Service on Demand

Not every electrician offering double tapped breaker repair is willing to work on your schedule. You might have to wait hours or even days for someone to show up. Instead of trying to be patient, look for an electrician that provides 24-hour emergency service. They provide the help you need exactly when you need it.

Commitment to Customer Service

Having a problem with your home electrical systems can be a very stressful experience. The last thing you need is to work with a rude, lazy, or manipulative electrical contractor. The person you hire to perform your double tapped breaker repair should be committed to the highest standards of customer service. That means they treat you and your home with respect before, during, and after the repair.
