What are breakers? Breakers are the "switch-like" devices in your electrical panel. These are safety devices designed to protect your homes wiring and the electrical devices (appliances, electronics, etc...) that are plugged into the circuits. Why does my breaker keep tripping? A very common cause for a continuously tripping breaker is a loose circuit. This can be remedied very quickly through tightening the connections, but this should only be done by a licensed electrician. Never attempt to tighten, replace or remove a breaker on you own. This should only be trusted in the hands of a licensed and trained professional electrician. There is high risk of electrocution and damage to your electrical system that could result in an electrical fire. Never ignore a tripping breaker. If it is tripping, there is a reason. If a breaker trips again, immedatly after resetting, this is a good indication that there is a short in the circuit and it should be evaluated as soon as possible. Call Powell Electric today to resolve your tripping breaker!
