Breakers

I sometimes get calls to upsize a breaker because it is tripping.If you have tripping breaker it is because you either have a short or to much of  a load on that circuit.A breaker is a safety device that trips on heat,so that your wire does not burn up.What ever the problem it will not help you to upsize the breaker and can be dangerous.Thanks for looking at my blog and check past post for more helpful tips.

Electrical Trouble

Today i would like to talk about an electrical problem i get all the time.Plugs that are not working in a certain room in the house.The first thing you want to do is find the plug that still has power.Next you want to kill the power to that circuit.Remove the plug that was working and look in the back of the plug for loose wires.If they are tight you could go to the plug next to it and check the wires there.Nine times out of ten your problem is a loose wire in a plug.I hope this helps you out and if you still can not find the problem give me a call at 361 433-6039.Thanks for looking at my blog and be sure and check past post for more helpful tips.(mention this blog and recieve 10% off on all service calls.
