When a circuit breaker trips, it shuts off power to certain parts of a home. This is a frustrating process to go through repeatedly – it can reset clocks and appliances, and leaves you in the dark until you flip the breaker back on.
Even though it may be getting on your last nerve, there are two things to remember when this is happening:
- Circuit breakers trip and are designed this way for your safety, to help avoid electrical fires and shock hazards.
- When a circuit breaker trips, it likely means there is something going on that needs to be addressed for your safety.
