Circuit Breakers: The New Fuses
Have you heard your electrician talk about circuit breakers, and you’re wondering how these relate to your fuses? In a nutshell, circuit breakers are the new alternative to fuses.
They work the same and they trip if the electrical current is too high. This protects your home and your building from a potentially dangerous situation if too much electricity is being used.
The main difference between circuit breakers and fuses is that fuses are only for a single use. You can reset the circuit breaker and use it again.
Circuit breakers are safer than fuses, so if you still have a fuse box in your house or building, you should have it upgraded to a circuit panel.
Why 3-Pronged Outlets Are Required in Your Home
When updating your home and your electrical system, you might notice that only 3-pronged outlets are installed and any 2-pronged outlets will be replaced by the electrician. This is because these 3-pronged devices are now required in order for your house to be up to code. They provide a grounding line and a grounding electrical outlet. This will detect high electrical currents and neutralize them in the ground before it reaches your house or building.

What To Consider When Choosing a Location for Your Generator
When you purchase a generator, one of the big questions you will need to answer before it’s installed is where it will be located. A lot of factors can go into this decision. You will need to consider how much noise it will make, how quickly and easily it can be accessed if it needs maintenance or repairs, the elevation level to keep water from entering it, any code requirements, and any suggestions from the manufacturer.
When you are looking to buy a generator, our electricians at ICT Electric will help you determine the best location for your system.
