A circuit breaker is a component of the modern consumer unit that can protect against electrical fires, electric shocks and overloads to the circuits. If you have an old build home, there is a high chance that you may not have any circuit breakers present in your consumer unit, if this is the case, it is a good idea to get them installed for your own safety. If you have a circuit breaker malfunction, we are more than happy to perform the necessary repairs.
If you have a high number of electrical devices, each using a high number of amps on the same circuit, then an electrical fire could occur as the plug becomes overloaded and blows up or potentially becomes too hot and melts away. Because of the increased need for extension plugs required in a property as electrical device use increases there is a need for measures to be put in place to protect the circuits from overloading and prevent over current; this is where a circuit breaker comes in.
Usually, there is a circuit breaker assigned to each circuit of a building or property, therefore, if the circuits overload, then the circuit breaker will trip and cut off electricity to the single circuit only, instead of the entire building.
A circuit breaker protects against over current which is a fault within the circuit itself and can even trip if a cable within the circuit becomes loose or faulty.
