Safety suggestion
« on: November 01, 2017, 09:43:44 AM »
Once again, the clocks change (most places) on Sunday.

If they are not operated occasionally, the circuit breakers in your electrical panel could "freeze" and not break the circuit when needed.  Because you will have to reset your clocks, this will be a good time to flip all the circuit breakers (off and back on) to make sure they are working properly.  If the breaker doesn't "snap" open and closed, it would be a good idea to have them checked as they springs inside can get old.

Don't forget to trip the big incoming breaker, usually at the top of the panel.  And don't forget to turn them back on.   ;D ;D

If you have fuses, it would be wise to remove and reinstall each one to make sure they aren't stuck.

Have a good weekend.
