Electrical safety equipment

When things go wrong


There will be times when electricity does not work as it is supposed to. It could surge out of control to dangerous levels that can damage devices or it could fail completely causing power loss to the home. You need to be ready for either scenario with the following electrical safety supplies or equipment.

Circuit breakers


Oftentimes, your circuit breaker panel can be the cause of electrical problems throughout your home. It is easy to overload your breakers resulting in power failure in one or more of the rooms in your house. If you’ve had a breaker trip more than once recently, it is time to call in a professional to evaluate if you have the appropriate voltage. 


There are several reasons why your breakers could be faulty including improper materials, water and humidity corrosion, missing breaker knockouts, and improper wiring. Electrical home repair is something you should not try to do yourself. Instead, call Home Mechanics in Boston today to ensure proper circuit breaker installation and repair.
