Are you tripping your circuit breaker on a regular basis?

Circuit breakers are designed to interrupt power to a circuit when the electrical current flow exceeds safe levels. They “trip” when they sense more current drawing on the circuit than the breaker is rated for. This happens when you have more devices or appliances drawing current simultaneously on a circuit that can’t handle the load. When they trip, breakers prevent the wire from heating to dangerous levels, stopping electricity from reaching outlets, switches and fixtures.

Resetting breakers usually restores power, as long as the load has been minimized. It’s infrequent, but sometimes a bad circuit breaker needs to be replaced. Faulty breakers cannot be repaired.

Park View Island Circuit breakers are directly connected to the flow of electricity and the amount of power your home produces. Their main responsibility is to protect your home or business from an electrical disaster. So, when a circuit breaker trips, it means you’re trying to use more energy than your outlet can handle. However, with a power upgrade from Electrician Network , we promise you’ll be able to meet the power needs of your home or business.

How Many and What Type of Circuit Breakers?

After asking “What is a circuit breaker?” you’ll need to determine how many and which types of Park View Island circuit breakers you need in your home. A circuit breaker operates at 80-percent of its rated capacity, so calculate how many breakers you need based on how many amps you need covered.

Add up the loads of the devices and appliances that will run on the circuit. Usually, you can find these listed on a sticker or label attached to the items.

If the load is calculated in watts, use this formula: watts divided by volts = amps. Example: 1,400W/120V = 12 amps.

The different types of circuit breakers include:

Single pole or one-pole circuit breakers provide 120-volts in various amp ratings

Single pole circuit breakers rated 15- to 20-amps are typically used for receptacles and lighting. They are available in three types: full size (1-in. wide), half size (1/2-in. wide) and tandem (1-in. wide with two switches that control two circuits).

Double pole or two-pole circuit breakers provide 240-volts in various amp ratings.

Double pole circuit breakers are typically used for appliances and hot water heaters

Arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCI)

are designed to shut down power to a circuit when they detect arcs of electricity caused by worn or damaged wires. AFCIs are used to protect circuits in bedrooms and common areas.

Combination arc fault circuit interrupters (CAFCI)

protect against the same arcs covered by AFCI as well as low-energy series arcing. They protect downstream branch circuit wiring and power cords.

Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI)

break a circuit instantly when a short is detected. They are used to protect circuits in wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, garages and unfinished basements.

Dual function (C/AFCI and GFCI)

breakers combine the features and benefits of an AFCI breaker and a GFCI breaker into one. This dual breaker protects against both arc faults and ground faults. Not only is it convenient, but it's also easy to install and maintain.

What Makes Up the Cost of An Emergency Electrical Repair?

Many Factors  contribute to the cost of hiring an emergency electrician.

Location – If your electrician travels far to provide repair services, you can anticipate fees to cover mileage. The area in which you live may also be a factor – if you’re in a large, populated city vs. residing in a rural community.

Time – You can expect your electrician to bill for their time, so you should inquire as to whether the charges are a flat rate or by the hour.

 

Expertise & Certifications – The experience of your electrician will factor into your pricing – whether they’re an apprentice, journeyman, or master electrician. Certifications for specific services will also influence pricing as your electrician will be more knowledgeable on your specific need.
