Residential Circuit Breakers

Residential Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers are intended for switching and protection of your home's wiring from high temperatures caused by excess current higher than the rating of the wire. While thermal-magnetic circuit breakers are the key element for overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system, there are potentially dangerous conditions that do not involve over current. The following circuit breakers should be utilized to provide further protection.

Surge and Circuit Protection

Siemens SPD Breaker protects at the point of entry where electricity enters a home through the main electrical service panel.

New! WireGuide Circuit Breaker

WireGuideTM  Load Centers and Electronic Breakers are now available. They offer more than 4 inches of breaker wire bending space. WireGuide's modified design accommodates WireGuide breakers with pre-trimmed neutral wires, making installation faster and easier.

Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Circuit Breaker

The Dual Function Circuit Breaker combines GFCI and AFCI, protecting against both Arc Faults and Ground Faults. This, along with the new Self-Test feature, makes it the first in class in electrical safety for homeowners.

Ground Fault Protection

GFCIs are an effective means of preventing severe electrical shock to people and equipment. To protect against electrical shock, Siemens GFCIs continuously monitor the difference in current between the hot and neutral conductors.
