About Circuit Fuses & Breakers
Circuit breakers trip for one of two reasons, a short circuit or an overloaded circuit. A short circuit is the simplest to explain and the hardest to repair, and an overloaded circuit is fairly easy to explain and easier to fix.
A breaker is designed to regulate the amount of amperage a wire can safely carry. This is why most 110 volt circuits in your home are wired with 12 Gage wire and placed on a 20 amp breaker. Quite possibly, your Des Moines home could be wired on 14 gage wire and a 15 amp breaker. You could place a 15 amp breaker on the 12 gage wire but you can never place a 20 amp breaker on 14 gage wire.
When a short circuit occurs, the hot wire is broken or possibly just has the insulation worn enough to make contact with a ground. When this happens this direct short causes the amperage to increase coming through the breaker and when the amperage is higher than the rating on the breaker the breaker trips. When you try and reset the breaker, it will trip right back off.
Repairing this situation requires someone with professional training and experience in the electrical field. Electricity is dangerous, so it’s very important that you hire a professional for this job. It takes less than one amp to kill someone, and injuries can occur very easily.

Is it Time to Upgrade Your Des Moines Fuse Box?
If you have a fuse box, chances are your home is up to 50 years old or older. If this is the case, you probably have electrical fuses that pull in and out rather than the circuit breakers of today, which use switches.
If your home is equipped with a fuse box, it is important that you invest in routine electrical inspections for your safety. Even if the wiring in your Des Moines home is in good shape, it is probably a good idea to replace that old fuse box with a more modern electrical panel for safety reasons. You’ll find that circuit breakers are much easier to operate as well.
To learn more about circuit breakers versus fuse boxes, contact the electricians Lazer Electric & Plumbing today. We can advise help you determine whether you need replace your fuses and breakers, upgrade them, or repair them, and we can handle the entire job.
