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.
