Tripped Breaker

Why Is My Breaker Tripping in Tampa?

Breakers trip; it's what they're designed to do. This is actually a safety feature that prevents electrical overload and minimizes the risk of electrical fires. However, if your breaker is frequently tripping, it could indicate a more severe underlying issue that you shouldn't ignore. In the Tampa area, where temperatures can soar, electrical systems are often under extra strain from air conditioners and cooling systems. Frequent tripping could be a sign of an electrical problem waiting to happen.

The Science Behind a Tripped Breaker

When the electrical demand on a circuit exceeds its capacity, the breaker "trips" to shut off the electrical flow. This action is a built-in safety measure to prevent overheating and fire risks. Each circuit breaker has a designated amp rating, and if you exceed this limit, you're asking for trouble.

Why Should I Be Concerned?

Ignoring a tripped breaker can lead to several problems:

  1. Risk of Electrical Fire: Prolonged electrical overload can heat up the wiring and lead to a fire.
  2. Appliance Damage: Frequent tripping can wear out your appliances prematurely.
  3. Inefficiency: If your electrical system isn't running at its optimum, you're wasting both electricity and money.

Steps to Take When Your Breaker Trips

  1. Identify the Culprit: Look for the appliance or devices causing the overload.
  2. Switch Off Appliances: Turn off all electrical appliances connected to the troubled circuit.
  3. Reset the Breaker: Flip the breaker switch to the "off" position and then turn it back "on."
  4. Consult an Expert: If the breaker continues to trip, it's time to call us.
