Do your circuit breakers keep tripping or your fuses keep blowing?
A common cause for repeated breaker tripping is a loose circuit. A loose circuit can be fixed very quickly through tightening the connections on the electrical panel. However, this should only be performed by a licensed and trained electrician!
Fuses and circuit breakers are safety measures designed to interrupt the power to a circuit when the flow is too great for the system to handle.
FUSE: Electrical Service Panels or Electrical boxes installed before 1965 may use fuses to protect Electric or Lighting Circuits.
CIRCUIT BREAKER: Unlike a fuse which must be replaced when blown, a Circuit Breaker that has tripped or shut off may be mechanically re-adjusted or replaced to resume operations once the problem has been resolved.
AFCI: (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters) These devices provide enhanced protection against additional Electrical Fire Hazards known as arc faults.
Circuit breakers and fuses turn off power to the wires they are connected to for 3 main reasons:
- There is a short somewhere on the circuit.
- The circuit is overloaded.
- The circuit breaker is faulty or broken.
