Breaker & Fuse Services in Tewksbury
Keeping Your Home & Family Safe
A circuit breaker is a type of electrical switch which is designed to protect your home and your electrical system from taking damage caused by too much current running through it. When the breaker detects that there is too much current, it will shut down the flow of current. A fuse has a similar function, though it must be replaced after the device is triggered, whereas a breaker can be reset back to normal function. These devices play an important role in the safety of your home electrical system, and bringing in a Tewksbury electrician can help you to ensure that they are expertly maintained.

What Causes a Breaker to Trip?
Resetting a tripped breaker repeatedly tends to be extremely annoying. But why does it happen?
There are three main things that will cause a breaker to trip:
- An overloaded circuit. This is the most common cause and simply means that you have too many things pulling electricity on a single circuit at the same time.
- A short circuit. This happens when a “hot” wire touches either a neutral wire or another “hot” wire.
- A ground fault. These occur when a “hot” wire comes in contact with the ground wire.
In all three cases, there is potential for dangerous electrical fires or other hazards.
