Circuit Breakers and Safety Switches

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors is your local expert for circuit breakers, including repairs, installation and more. We’re able to assess your home’s wiring when something goes wrong or can just keep everything safe and secure.

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.

Call us now for more information on how we can help you.

Reliable Circuit Breaker Repairs

Our electrical contractors will ensure your home can handle any common – or even uncommon – electrical problems. And when you’re faced with a tripped circuit breaker we can get to the bottom of it, fast.

Our electrical repairs tackle all of your woes, including common faults such as:

  • Overloaded circuit – When too many appliances or devices are operating at the same time, drawing on too large an electrical load.
  • Short circuit – Wiring is to be blamed, when a hot wire touches a neutral one, or appliance wiring is damaged.
  • Arc fault – A reaction to power fluctuation caused by sparking, or arcing, between contact points.
  • Ground fault – When a hot wire makes contact with a ground wire or material which it should not, such as metal or a wet surface. There is a chance of electrical shock.

So whether your wiring has a loose connection, ground faults or continues to short circuit on a regular basis, you want Metropolitan.

Repairs are more than just a simple replacement and we will take care of you and your family with a full house assessment. If there are any appliances, lighting or air conditioning causing concern, your worries will soon be over.

And if your current switchboard is outdated, or perhaps you have no circuit breakers or safety switches, let us lift your home so it meets all regulations and standards. There’s no reason to put up with old circuits and wires!

FAQs - All you need to know about Circuit Breakers

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors answers your questions about circuit breakers.

A circuit breaker is an automatic electrical switch that protects an electrical circuit from excess current or a short circuit. They prevent damage from overloads and minimise the risk of fire. Their one function is to interrupt current flow as quickly as possible as soon as a fault is found.

At a glance, safety switches and circuit breakers look the same. They’re a switch. The difference is that RCD safety switches also have a test button. The button may be square or round, but it always has a ‘t’ on it for ‘test’. So if you have a switch in your fuse box that is accompanied by a button with a ‘t’ on it, you have a safety switch and not a circuit breaker.
