Tripped Circuit Breakers
Addressing a Red Flag with The Accuracy and Effort You Deserve
Why Does a Circuit Breaker Trip?
There are certain features in modern-day technology that are meant to protect you. For example, the air bags in your car are programmed to go off if you get into an accident. Even more, your town infuses your home’s gas with a rotten egg smell so that you can quickly detect gas in the event of a leak.
When it comes to your electricity, a tripped circuit breaker can actually save your life. As the electric current runs into your breaker, it is then distributed to various areas throughout your home.
A circuit trips when what’s known as a fault condition takes place. After this happens, the electric current in your home will shut off as a safety precaution. In most instances, you can simply reset the circuit to turn your electricity back on. Oftentimes, circuit breakers will trip when one of your circuits is simply overloaded with too much power. This typically occurs when you are using multiple devices at once in a single area, such as lights, hairdryers or space heaters.
The real problem arises when your circuit breaker frequently trips and you have to constantly reset your electricity. At this point, you have no idea what the problem could be, and are afraid to meddle with your electric in an attempt to find out.
