Nearly each and every electrical system in every home and building that you have ever been in is linked to the central circuit breaker box. Although most people know how to flip these breakers on and off, most people have no idea how they work or what exactly it is that they do. Circuit breakers firm your first line of defense against unsafe levels of electricity. As electricity levels become too strong, your circuit breaker will shut off the power to an individual circuit until you can either reset the breaker or get in touch with your local electrician to come troubleshoot the problem.
