Twin Cities Breaker Replacement
Repair, Replacement & Installation
Your circuit breaker is designed to protect an electrical circuit by interrupting circuit flow upon detection of a fault condition. When the amperage rating exceeds the value labeled on the breaker, for instance, the breaker will shut down the whole circuit. Simply put, if you have a 100-amp breaker and it exceeds that amperage, it will trip.
The Causes Behind Your Breaker Tripping:
- Circuit overload
- Short Circuit
- Ground Fault
Tripped breakers happen to everyone. In fact, they are supposed to. As a necessary safety measure, circuit breakers are made to trip in order to protect your home from overloaded and short circuits.
If, however, you notice your breaker tripping frequently, take note! You may have a much larger electrical problem on your hands. If you are using more amperage than what your breaker can handle, then you probably need to have a breaker or two changed or have your breaker replaced with one that has a higher amperage rating.
