How to Stop Your Circuit Breaker from Tripping in the Summer

Attic Fans

During the summer, our attics really start to swelter. In the peak summer months when outdoor temperatures get to around 90℉, attic temperatures can get even higher. These extreme temperatures can put a lot of stress on your house as it tries to cool itself down. It also makes it a struggle for you when you need to access the attic. With a new attic fan installed, your attic can expel the hot air and draw cooler air in from outside. These are usually best run late in the evening or early in the morning when the air is at its coolest. Not only would this help your home cool itself easier, but it can also help extend the life of your roof by taking away excess heat.

Dedicated Circuit Upgrades For Your A/C

As we all know, your home is constantly drawing energy during the summer to cool itself. Heavy A/C use along with the constant use of appliances like refrigerators, ovens, toasters and hair dryers can put a lot of strain on your circuit breakers, maybe even causing them to overload or blow a fuse. Making a dedicated circuit upgrade for your A/C ensures that your system can pull enough energy while making sure the power grid of your home stays stable and secure. Making these two additions to your home can really put your home at ease from the heat and make keeping cool much safer for you and your family. If you feel that your home would benefit from these services, be sure to give Kelly Electric a call or contact us online.
