Save money on your circuit breakers by carefully resetting
them when necessary. Do not get in a hurry and flip several at the same
time. Do one at a time, and wait a few seconds if you need to do another
one. Doing too many at the same time can cause a power surge that can
damage the whole panel.
Here are some frugal tips to help with circuit
- Avoid turning circuit
breakers on and off. The switches are prone to breakage.
- Test your switches once,
and mark which areas of your house each switch covers.
- Be sure and keep a
flashlight next to your circuit breaker box for convenience and so
don't make a mistake or hurt yourself in the dark.
