A circuit breaker is a component of your home’s electrical supply system. It not only distributes your electrical power feed into accessible multiple circuits, but it also provides a protective fuse for each circuit in one convenient metal box enclosure.
We’ve all experienced a tripped breaker at one time or another – and sometimes it’s nothing more than a slight movement of the handle. But other times, it’s a much more serious problem that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. If you suspect you may be having an issue with your circuit breaker, don’t wait to call Spark Daddy today.
Why Do Breakers Trip?
There are three common reasons why circuit breakers can trip:
The more serious cause for a tripped breaker is a short circuit or a ground fault condition. Because these situations are more difficult to diagnose and could signal a dangerous fire hazard, it’s best to leave it to a professional electrician. At Spark Daddy, we’re able to install GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) and AFCI (arc fault circuit interrupter) to protect against dangerous fault conditions. A faulty breaker or electrical panel is extremely dangerous, so it’s important you know the warning signs.
