As a child, I remember that there was an ultimate struggle in our house hold with my sister & my mother. When we would get ready to go out as a family and my sister would be in her bathroom blow drying her hair & my mom would be in her bathroom blow drying her hair and POOF….both dryers aren’t working, lights are out in both bathrooms and the girls are yelling at each other. Has this ever happened to you?
If you can relate, you know that you (or in my case, my sister & mother) just overloaded a circuit and tripped a breaker or blew a fuse. Luckily, we knew how to fix the problem, but for those who don’t know where to start, here are some pointers:
- Check the electrical panel or fuse box – see if the breaker has tripped or a fuse has blown.
- If the breaker has tripped it is easy to reset by turning it back on with the flip of a switch on your breaker panel.
- If a fuse has blown, it must be replaced. Fuses come in different sizes & styles.
If your situation is worst case scenario, then we recommend that you call a professional electrician to help you. For tips & hints on how to choose the right Electrical Contractor in Orlando, visit this previous blog post.
