What is a Circuit Breaker?

An electrical circuit breaker is a protection device designed to prevent overloads or short circuits. Most homes and businesses require them to be installed as part of their electrical systems. The protection they provide helps prevent electrical fires, shocks, and electrocution. 

How Does a Circuit Breaker Work?

Sometimes the flow of electricity becomes too high, either because of an overload or a short circuit. When this happens, the circuit breakers interrupts the flow of current to prevent that high current from flowing the electrical currents. This interruption is provided by a switch that opens and stops the flow of electricity. 

This interruption is extremely vital as it prevents the circuit from overheating and causing fires or damage to plugged in devices and equipment. Once the interruption happens, the circuit breaker will need to be reset to resume the electricity flow. 

Circuit Breaker Repairs

When circuit breakers begin to show signs of tear and disrepair, most electricians will simply recommend a replacement. There’s a variety of reasons for replacement but it is mostly explained by the complexity and safety concerns involved with such repairs. Therefore, when you begin to notice the signs of repair in your circuit breaker, you may be looking at an entirely new breaker overall. 

Signs that Your Circuit Breaker Needs Services

Most circuit breakers are built to last. However, there are some circumstances where you may need to have your circuit breaker checked. The signs that your circuit breaker may need repairs are as follows: 

These issues are most common in a circuit breaker that is at the end of its lifespan and that requires replacement anyways. 

Why It Is Essential to Hire an Electrician for Circuit Breaker Services

Circuit breakers are a very high piece of technology that requires specialized training to be handled properly. Fixing your circuit breaker should never fall into the list of your DIY projects because: 

Expertise & Safety

Circuit breakers involve working with live electrical wires and components, which can be extremely dangerous and potentially fatal if not handled correctly. The electricians at One Source are trained to work safely with electricity and know how to prevent terrible accidents like electrocution.
