What Is a Circuit Breaker?

Your circuit breaker protects your home from electrical overloads and short circuits, helping to prevent electrical fires and other dangers. Acting as a resettable fuse, a circuit breaker detects a fault and interrupts the flow of electricity immediately. You can often find your breaker box in your garage, basement, or a closet. If you’re having difficulty finding your breaker box, the location of your electric meter, which is outside your home or business, may give you a clue.

Circuit Breakers vs. Fuses

Unsure if your home has – or needs – a circuit breaker or a fuse box? Here are the common differences between circuit breakers and fuses:

  • Circuit breakers may be reset after they have tripped; fuses must be replaced.
  • Circuit breakers are more expensive initially; fuses are cheaper to install.
  • Circuit breakers require maintenance; fuses do not.
  • Circuit breakers can be upgraded with optional protective features like ground faults; fuses cannot.

Why Did My Circuit Breaker Trip?

There are several reasons why a circuit breaker may trip. In fact, if your circuit breaker has tripped, that means it’s doing its job properly, because circuit breakers are designed to trip at predetermined loads to help protect your home or business from the dangers of an overcurrent.

However, if your circuit breaker trips frequently or you notice a burning smell, it’s important to act quickly. Turn off the main breaker and contact the professionals at Five Star Plumbing Heating Cooling and Electrical right away. Don’t try to DIY circuit breaker issues; because their job is to protect you from dangerous overcurrents, the safest way to get electricity flowing again when they’re not working properly is by trusting a professional electrician.
