Where to Buy Circuit Breakers?

It’s hard to imagine living in a world where electricity isn’t the norm. Most people are so used to it that they take it for granted. It can be easy for those who don’t work with it more closely than plugging something in or flipping a light switch to forget how dangerous it can be if the wiring becomes damaged. That’s where circuit breakers come in: Circuit breakers are crucial parts for keeping buildings and people safe. Like everything else, however, circuit breakers can go bad; so, they’ll need to be replaced. But where do you buy circuit breakers if you need to replace them?

Online Retailers

Online retailers are one of the more obvious places to start when looking for a place to buy circuit breakers. After all, you can get just about anything online. Big box stores have their online store equivalents, some of whom will carry circuit breakers for purchase. Exclusively online retailers may also carry circuit breakers that you can order. Some retailers may focus exclusively on hardware and home improvement goods, while others may offer goods that traverse a wide range of departments.

Physical Stores

Plenty of physical stores carry circuit breakers. Like online retailers, you may find physical stores that focus on hardware and similar supplies, as well as big box stores that carry a wide range of goods–both types of stores may carry the circuit breakers you need. The advantage of going to a physical store is that you don’t have to pay for shipping or wait for the breakers you need to be delivered. That said, selection may be more limited which can be a problem if you’re looking for an older circuit breaker brand.

Big Electric Supply

Some electrical parts, including some circuit breakers, can be much more difficult to find than others. Big Electric Supply specializes in hard-to-find electrical parts like some types of circuit breakers. Older legacy panels can be particularly difficult to find circuit breakers for. Big Electric Supply is proud to carry circuit breakers for such panels, allowing you to replace circuit breakers for old panels so those older buildings can continue to safely use the electricity they need.

Connecticut Electric

Homes built between 1950-1980 often have electrical panels that are no longer in production. Replacement breakers for these panels can be hard to find, making it difficult to keep homes and other buildings powered when something goes wrong. Connecticut Electric is the exclusive manufacturer of circuit breakers for many of these older electrical panels. When you get replacement circuit breakers from Connecticut Electric, you can get your home or business back up and running quickly and at a cost-effective price. Also, Connecticut Elecric breakers carry a 10-year warranty.  If you have an older home, look for distributors who stocks Connecticut Electric breakers.

There are a lot of places where you can buy circuit breakers. They aren’t all created equal though, especially if the circuit breaker you need is a little harder to come by. You can’t just go around replacing old circuit breakers with just any new circuit breaker. You have to use the right one for the panel. That makes finding the right place to buy your circuit breakers one of the most important parts of getting the job done.
