The circuit breaker can be tripping for a number of reasons— either it’s overloaded or shorting out. If this is happening often, it should be looked at because it’s a problem that won’t fix itself.
You don’t. Everything in the house might be working perfectly and yet it might be unsafe. That’s why National Fire Protection Association, National Electric Code and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration all recommend having your electrical system checked once a year.
Absolutely. That is one of reasons we recommend the plan to our customers. The Safety and Savings Plan is a way to give you and your family piece of mind that your electrical system is safe and operating properly.
Once the surge protector is in place and connected it will redirect surges to the ground and lessen the energy. The surge protection selected must have a UL rating on response time. A point to remember is that the greater the surge current rating, the longer the surge protector will last.
GFI is an abbreviation for ground fault interrupter. There are two kinds of GFIs, a receptacle type and a circuit breaker type. A GFI will monitor the current going through it and if it senses an imbalance it will trip out quickly and prevent the user from getting a shock. A defective appliance or piece of equipment could cause a ground fault. They should be installed in various locations as per the national electrical code. Some areas are as follows: bathrooms, kitchen counter tops, all outdoor areas, pool and hot tub equipment, spas and ponds, garages, and unfinished basements. This is truly a lifesaving device!
