Why do I frequently blow breakers?

Each breaker or fuse is assigned a specific circuit in the home. Your family room, for example, may have a one breaker that controls all the outlet and light fixtures in that room. With advancing technology and the addition of new electrical appliances big and small it’s possible over time for these circuits to become overloaded causing the breaker or fuse to blow. Another problem may be a short circuit causing the breaker or fuse to blow instantly which may require a licensed electrical contractor to repair.
