The cicuit breakers in your electrical panel are designed to protect you from an electrical fire. There are many reasons that your breaker will "trip" meaning shut itself off. It could be simple: You are using too much power on one circuit all at once. Don't try to use your hair dryer, curling iron, toaster and microwave in the same room at the same time! Solution: call a licensed, insured electrician, like Generation 3 Electric, and have an extra circuit added to a room with high power demand. Most modern kitchens have four to five circuits. Or it could be more serious: That handyman you let install some breakers did a very poor job! The photos below show poorly installed breakers and panel. There is even a screw touching the copper wire! No wonder that breaker is tripping. Solution: call Gen3 Electric and we will inspect your electrical system and offer you options to meet your electrical needs as well as your safety. Maybe your circuit breaker is failing and just needs to be replaced.
Today's code requires arc fault breakers which are even more sensitive to shorts or power surges. They trip even more often. If your breaker is tripping, it is trying to tell you something. Listen! Call a licensed, insured electrician, like Generation 3 Electric, and schedule an appointment right away.Read More >

Knob and Tube Investigations are labor intensive inspections that we perform in many beautiful and charming old homes in and around Philadelphia. These are in high demand now because many insurance companies are denying homeowners coverage due to the prescence of this deteriorating, dangerous and obsolete wiring.Read More >
