Alberta Electricians Breakers
The 4-Star Difference, BREAKERS:
For Albertans living in an older home, breakers can quickly become a headache. Breakers are designed to help protect your home from fires and your electronics from power surges. They do this by detecting when too much power is being drawn and shutting off the circuit before the wiring can overheat or your electronics become damaged. Unfortunately, the demands we place on our home’s is significantly higher than it was a couple decades ago. So many of the older breakers react to what is, by today’s standards, a normal amount of drawn power.
Some homeowners, who have fuse boxes rather than more modern circuit breakers, try to get around this problem by changing out the 5 AMP fuses for larger 10 or 15 AMP ones. But that isn’t a good idea. Fuse boxes have 5 AMP fuses because the wiring used at the time can only safely move 5 AMPs at a time. When the wires are forced to carry 10 or 15 AMPs regularly, they degrade much faster which greatly increases the risk of an electrical fire.
