Are Your Breakers Protecting You!?

By: Blessed Electric and Air

Are you familiar with your breaker’s location? Most of us don’t think about it until our lights go out, and we must scramble to find it. Breakers, or electrical panels, distribute electricity throughout the home. Electrical wiring is connected to your home’s internal wiring through these connectors. Circuit breakers and fuses are designed to trip before circuit wires become dangerously hot. Your appliances and power sources may not work as a result.

The tripped circuit keeps your house safe by protecting the electrical wiring in your house when you use the toaster and microwave at the same time.

Electrical loads you send through your walls, not the number of appliances you have, make the power go out. If your circuit breaker trips or keeps tripping, there may be a problem with your home’s wiring.

That’s why it’s crucial to keep your systems up-to-date and secure or to upgrade them if necessary. Circuit breakers can be found in the following types:

  • Standard Breaker– The electrical flow is monitored from when the electricity enters the home to when it leaves through appliances and outlets.
  • GFCI Breaker– When an overload trips GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breakers, the power to the circuit is cut off.
  • AFCI Breaker– Electric discharges in cords or wiring can cause fires if they are not protected by AFCI breakers (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters). These breakers immediately disconnect the damaged circuit when the arc builds up enough heat.

Contact us if your breakers need special attention. Blessed Electric and Air.
