Why Do My Breakers Keep Tripping?

There are a variety of causes that could trigger a circuit breaker. Some of these causes are fairly harmless but others could be putting your home in danger. For this reason, it is important to know the common causes of a tripped circuit.



Breakers can trip for a variety of reasons, and it is always important to know the cause of a tripped breaker. If your breakers are continuously switching, make sure that you contact an electrician. Some of the most common causes of tripped circuits include:

Overloaded Circuits

The most common cause of a tripped circuit breaker is an overloaded circuit. Circuit breakers are designed to trip when too much power is being drawn, as this can cause overheating and lead to a fire or damage all of the electrical devices plugged into the circuit. When something is plugged in that draws too much power or when multiple appliances are plugged in that overload the circuit, the breaker trips. If your breakers are tripping, check to see what is plugged in. 

Problematic devices could include vacuums, air conditioners, space heaters, hairdryers, and corded tools.


Short Circuits

A short circuit occurs when a hot or live wire comes in contact with a neutral wire somewhere in the circuit. This usually occurs at an outlet, light fixture, or switch. Short circuits can be incredibly dangerous, as they create massive amounts of heat. 

Short circuits are the most common cause of electrical fires.


Ground Fault Surges

Similar to short circuits, ground fault surges occur when two wires cross when they are not supposed to. When a hot or live wire comes into contact with a ground wire, the edge of the box, or any other grounded source more power than the circuit can handle will begin to flow through the system and a ground fault surge occurs. 

If not handled properly, this can lead to electrical fires and electrocution, so a licensed electrician should always be called.

If you are ever uncertain about a potential electrical issue in you home please contact Active Electric and one of their qualified professionals would be happy to come out and take a look.  They Also provide Free quotes!

To Whom It May Concern,                                                                                              

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Active Electric. We have been working with this company for approximately 3 years now. The service we receive from Brad and his crew is exactly what we need for our business. They are quick to respond to our needs. They are always at our jobs when they say they will be. And there have been countless occasions we have called them on very short notice, and they are still able to react to problems within the very same day. Working with insurance claims as we do, we encounter all different types of jobs big or small, complicated or simplistic. Active Electric is always there to help us trouble shoot whatever electrical issues we face, and to help us provide a sound opinion and recommendation to our insurance partners and home or business owners. I can honestly say our company would not be where it is at today, without the strong partnership we found with Active Electric. As far as working relationships go, Brad and his team at Active Electric are an example of one of our very best partnerships. We look forward to working with them in the years ahead, and wish them nothing but continuous success in whatever future endeavors they encounter.

10 Questions to Ask an Electrician Before Hiring:

Asking these 10 electrician questions will help you find a qualified pro with the right experience and business practices for your needs.

Finding the right electrician can be as much a matter of safety as getting your money's worth, since electrical problems are among the leading causes of house fires. Electrical work must be done by the book-specifically, the National Electrical Code book-and follow all code requirements of your city's building department. Asking these 10 electrician questions will help you find a qualified pro with the right experience and business practices for your needs.

1. Are you licensed?

Electricians are required to be licensed in most states and municipalities, so don't consider one who isn't properly licensed. There are two basic levels of licensure: A master electrician has at least two years of professional experience and is licensed for both design and installation of electrical systems. A journeyman is licensed for installation only. In some areas, journeymen must work alongside masters.

2. Are you insured?

Certainly one of the deal-breaker electrician questions, given the potentially high liability for this work. Electrical contractors should carry at least $500,000 in liability and workers' compensation insurance.

3. Who will perform the work?

Don't assume the person you talk to will be the one doing all the work. Ask about the hourly rates for different qualifications (master electrician vs. journeyman/apprentice, or any combination of workers). If you feel your job requires a master's expertise, discuss this up front.

4. What special training/experience do you have for this kind of work?

This should be one of your electrician questions if your project calls for specific expertise, such as installing voice/data cabling, home automation systems or solar equipment. Even if another contractor handles the specialty stuff, it's helpful if your electrician has experience working with those systems and protocols.

5. Will you provide references (for past jobs similar to mine)?

References are particularly important for hiring electricians; it's hard to judge the quality of their work when you can't see most of it and don't really know what to look for (see item 10 for tips).

6. What does your estimate include?

In addition to pricing structure, be sure to discuss incidentals, like repairing drywall and other things affected by the electrical work. Chances are, you'll be responsible for them.

7. Do I need a permit? Who will obtain it?

A permit ensures electrical work will be checked by a city inspector-an important safeguard for homeowners. It's standard for electricians (not homeowners) to pull permits.

8. What kind of work do you do most?

Like many contractors, electricians often specialize in one area or another. As an example, if your project involves finished spaces, look for someone who specializes in remodels as opposed to new construction.

 

9. What will you guarantee/warranty?

Learn how well a pro stands behind his work. Also be aware that electricians typically assume responsibility for fixtures, devices and other equipment they buy for you through their professional accounts.

10. May I see a work in progress?

Depending on the nature of your project, it might be helpful to visit an electrician's current job, for a behind-the-scenes look at his work. In general, you're looking for evidence of orderly, methodical installation: neat cable runs near the service panel (breaker box), clear labeling of circuit breakers, regular anchoring of cables, switch boxes that sit squarely and finish flush to the drywall surface, etc.

Like a plumber, doctor and auto mechanic, a trusted electrician is a valuable member of a household maintenance team. As you cover your list of electrician questions, listen for a panel-side manner; you want someone who explains what he's doing and why, and who will help you understand the essentials of your system (or as much as you care to know). Ideally, the electrician you hire now will be a good source to call for emergencies and other projects down the road.
