What Is a Circuit Breakers Job?

Your circuit breaker helps prevent electrical overload. You can easily overload your electrical circuits by using too many electrical appliances at one time. When more electricity is transferred across an electrical wire than the circuit can handle, it should trigger your circuit breaker. It will then cut power to all devices. Your electrical outlets and wiring should be upgraded to meet the electrical demands of your home.

We understand it can be challenging to know the best time to choose a circuit breaker replacement. The most common reasons you should replace your current circuit breakers include the following:
