Charlotte Home Inspector Finds Dangerous Double Electrical Problem

November 19th, 2011 · No Comments


Charlotte home inspector Preston Sandlin found a dangerous situation on a recent Charlotte home inspection where he found two wires going into the same breaker causing a situation where the the wires could heat up and cause a problem.  Square D is the only breakers that are made to allow for two wires into one breaker.  If it isn’t the specially made sqaure D it is probably going to be a double tab that is illegal and is a fire hazard like the one you see here.  If you have a double tap you should call a lisensed electrician.
