A flow of electricity that is too large for capacity often results in wiring damage, fires, and destruction of property. Circuit breakers help solve this issue, by providing a middle property that will stop the electric flow if it is too large. Some types of circuit breakers have one-time use pieces, that will need replaced after preventing each instance of circuit damage. It’s important that the user understands each type of circuit breaker, and what its individual parts and purposes are.
