Homes built decades ago were simply not built with such foresight with affordable appliances, printers, computers, home theater systems, and other major and minor electrical devices surging energy. Any home built from then until the 2000’s might also be unlikely to keep up with the needs and homes constructed prior to 1970 is likely inadequately to support the demand of your family’s electrical needs.
Circuit Breaker Keeps Tripping

When a wire running to or from a specific device becomes overloaded the circuit breakers keep you and your home safe by tripping or turning off.
