What Should I Do If My Circuit Breaker Keeps Tripping?

The last thing you want during the holiday season is for your home to start having electrical problems. One issue that may give you problems during the holidays is your fuse box and circuit breakers.

Imagine being at home cooking your dinner and counting down the moments before the next episode of your favorite show is about to premiere and your power goes out. Or what if you have family and friends over for a holiday party and your power goes out? Worse yet, what if you or a loved one depends on medical equipment that runs on electricity and the power is constantly going out?

Bottom line, you need your home’s power to be reliable, especially during the holidays. If your circuit breakers keep tripping, that’s not going to be the case.

What to Do If Your Circuit Breakers Keep Tripping

If your circuit breakers keep tripping, you need to have the issue resolved as soon as possible. The following are a few tips for what to do if your circuit breakers are constantly tripping:

  • Don’t try to fix it yourself – Working with electricity is extremely dangerous. Electricians are highly trained and it can still be dangerous for them to work with electricity. If you are not an electrician, you shouldn’t try to repair your fuse box or a troublesome circuit breaker. This doesn’t mean that you can’t do simple things, such as resetting a circuit breaker that has tripped so that your power can be temporarily restored. It just means leave the more complex repairs and maintenance to qualified professionals for your own safety.
  • Call an electrician to troubleshoot the issue – There are several issues that could be causing your circuit breaker to keep tripping, such as a circuit overload, ground fault, or short circuit. An experienced and licensed electrician can inspect your system, figure out the problem, and provide you with options for fixing the issue.
  • Have an electrician repair the problem – Once you know what the problem is, hire an electrician to repair the issue. They will get it repaired quickly, safely, and efficiently, and they will provide a long term solution to the problem.
