It’s pretty easy to take your home or business’ breakers for granted. Breakers tend to last a really long time, and are often pretty much out of sight and out of mind. That is, until you begin noticing electrical problems in your home. Then it’s a quick trip to the breaker box (or a phone to call a professional, if you’re quick on the draw!) to start hitting switches until something happens.
