Three Reasons a Breaker Trips

A breaker that keeps tripping is usually caused by one of three things.  The first reason could be there are too many electrical items plugged into the circuit.  Circuits are designed to only handle so much electric demand.  The second reason is there could be a short in the wiring, or the third reason is the breaker or fuse could be faulty.  It is recommended that an electrician evaluate the problem to make sure there are no safety issues.  Your electrician can also talk with you about adding more circuits to your home so that your electrical system can support all your needs.

 Don’t take chances with your home’s electricity. Electrical issues are one of the top causes of house fires. Don’t just keep resetting that breaker! It might be trying to tell you something.
