Tripped Circuit Breaker

Tripped Circuit Breaker

One of the most common electrical problems is a tripped circuit breaker. This occurs when the electrical current in a circuit exceeds the circuit's rated capacity, causing the breaker to trip and shut off power to the circuit. Allow our team of professionals to attend to your service promptly

Blown Fuse

A blown fuse happens when too much electrical current flows through a circuit, causing the fuse to melt and break the circuit. To fix this problem, our team will need to locate the fuse box, identify the blown fuse, and replace it with a new one of the same amperage rating.
