Fuses and Circuit Breakers

Recently Universal Home Experts shared an important home safety message, ‘Proper Fuses by Universal Wiring.’ We would like to provide more information on that topic.

We have provided information on the importance of properly sized electrical fuses throughout this month. We would like to provide one more article on this topic.

Fuses are the most commonly used form of over-current protection. The fuse should be the weakest link in the circuit, and should be designed to fail in a safe manner.

Replacement fuses should only be the correct rating and type. You should never use a smaller replacement fuse. By doing this, you increase your risk of an electrical fire that puts you and your family at risk.
