Frequently Asked Questions

Question:  If one of my breakers keeps tripping, do I need an Electrician?

Answer:  In most cases the answer is yes.  If you are attempting to use appliances that require larger breakers   and wire you will need an electrician to install the proper equipment. 

Answer:  This could also indicate a more serious problem:  If a breaker trips for no reason at all, it could be a loose wire in the outlet or breaker, and in other cases a picture hanging nail or device may have punctured the insulation of the wiring and is a very dangerous problem.
