Although you could just reset the circuit breaker every time it trips, figuring out the root of the problem will help you fix it once and for all. Common reasons your breaker keeps tripping include circuit overload, a short circuit, or a ground fault. The following information will help you understand the differences between these three reasons so that you can better resolve your circuit breaker and electrical system issues. 

What is a Circuit Breaker?

Your circuit breakers protect your home from electrical issues by cutting off the flow of electricity through a circuit whenever the electrical current gets too high and unsafe. Without circuit breakers, electrical fires, shocks, and other forms of damage and injury would occur much more often. Before we get into the nitty-gritty of how a circuit breaker works, it’s important to understand how electricity works. Electricity is the name we give the movement of electrical charge from one atom to another. We use electricity as a secondary energy source that comes from a primary energy source like natural gas, coal, or even solar. Electricity is composed of three main qualities: voltage, current, and resistance. Electrical voltage is the amount of pressure that it takes to make the electric charge move through the conductor. It flows at the rate of current. Resistance occurs when the electric current interacts with the conductor. Different kinds of conductors offer different levels of resistance, which is why some materials conduct electricity better than others. Remember the potato battery experiment you might have done in grade school? The potato helps conduct electricity by acting as a bridge between two metals. You probably won’t be finding any potatoes in your home’s wiring system, though. The wiring in your house will usually be composed of three different types of wires: a hot wire that conducts the electric current, a neutral wire, and a ground wire. (Hot wires are usually black, neutral wires are usually white, and ground wires are usually green.) Like ships in the night, the hot and neutral wires will typically never touch each other. The current passes through an appliance that creates a high level of resistance to the current; this process keeps the voltage at safe levels. However, every so often, something can cause the hot and neutral wires to come into contact. When this happens, the resistance to the current is dramatically reduced, which can cause dangerous voltage and current levels—even a fire. When these voltage and current levels are higher than they should be, you’ll have a tripped circuit breaker. The trip cuts off electricity to the circuit until the issue can be resolved and safety restored.

   Do I Need to Upgrade My Electrical Service panel for My Electric Vehicle car Charger ? Homeowners and businesses in Ontario need to prepare for a wave of new electric vehicles to hit Canadian market, many people are wondering if their home or business current electrical service will be enough to maintain their EV charging requirements down the road. It’s a good question to ask before buying an (EV) electric vehicle) or a new fleet of vehicles for your business. Let’s look at the what goes into determining if your existing electric service panel is able to maintain the additional electrical load of a new EV car charger. What to know before installing an EV charger installation in Oakville. There are 2 things to think of when knowing if your home service panel or business will be able to handle the load of your new EV charging station. Type of EV charger you buy. And your Toronto home electrical service panel or business is sized to your your total electrical load. What Is Your Existing Size of your electric service ? Finding the electrical service size in your home is the first hurdle. If you have 200-amp electrical service panel, your home is probally good for an EV charger install, as long as your existing service panel has enough space to add a new circuit for a level (2 EV car charger). If you have enough amperage, but not enough room in the entrance panel, an (ESA) licensed electrician can add a sub-panel for the EV charger installation. A Hompros licensed ESA electrician will be able to evaluate your incoming service and determine if you have the space needed in your electric panel. If by chance you only have a 60 amp service panel, you will not be able to add an EV home charger. The amperage is not able to run all your appliances as well as handle the car charging system, so upgrading to a 200 amp electrical service would be needed. If you have a 100 amp service and an electrician determines your panel is at capacity, a service panel upgrade to 200 amps would be recommended. If you have a 100 amp electrical service and a licensed ESA electrician determines that you have amperage available, it may be recommended to upgrade to 200 amp service depending on the load at your business or home. What Is Your Electrical Load In Your House Like? A level 2 EV charger in Toronto can quickly utilize the majority of a 100-amp service to charge a vehicle (Tesla EV batteries will need 24 to 42 amps. A home with 100-amp service and electric appliances may experience flickering lights and frequent breaker trips because of the high electrical load of an home EV charger. This is especially important for future considerations like an additional household electric vehicle or to accommodate visitor EVs. Service Panel Upgrade A 200 amp service panel is highly recommended for installation of a home EV charger (Electric car charger). Although a 100-amp service could be capable of handling a new EV charger, it may test the limits of your home electrical systems. The average home built more than 20 years ago will have a 100 amp service or even a 60 amp panel), most new homes now a days are built to ESA code with a 200-amp electrical service.
