Your home’s electrical system is undeniably important. Without electricity, well life is tough. From appliances to smart devices, security systems and more, we need power.
But we also need to be secure. This is where circuit breakers come in.
A circuit breaker is an automatic electrical switch that is triggered when there is excess current flow or wiring short circuits. Their one function is to interrupt current flow as quickly as possible as soon as a fault is found. Household damage is avoided when there is a circuit overload, helping reduce the risk of fire.
Circuit breakers differ from RCD safety switches in that they are only designed to prevent electrical fires. Safety switches prevent electrocution and are focused on avoiding human harm.
When a circuit breaker trips the solution is much more than just flicking it back on again. You want a licensed electrician to assess the situation so you know exactly what is causing the overloaded circuit or ground fault.
Metropolitan’s fully qualified and licensed electricians have the experience and training to do just this. They can isolate and repair the fault, upgrade your home’s wiring if necessary, and provide prompt switchboard maintenance.
