The National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, is a United States standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment. It is part of the National Fire Codes series published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

While the NEC is not itself a U.S. law, NEC use is commonly mandated by state or local law, as well as in many jurisdictions outside of the United States. The NEC codifies the requirements for safe electrical installations into a single, standardized source. The “authority having jurisdiction” inspects for compliance with these minimum standards.

No! If your breaker is tripping it is doing exactly what it was designed to do. A tripping breaker is telling you that you have overloaded the circuit or that it is worn out and should be replaced with the same size and type as the original.

Besides dedicated circuits, your multi-wire branch circuit is designed to power multiple devices, lights, and fans. If you turn all of your items on and the breaker trips, you probably overloaded the circuit. Replacing the existing breaker with a higher capacity/size will expose the circuit to a heat/fire hazard. The best solution is to limit the number of electric devices you use on a given circuit to avoid tripping the breaker or have an additional circuit installed.

If a breaker is continuously tripping and you do not feel you are overloading the circuit, please contact Phoenix Electrical at 706-607-6332 so we can assess the condition of the breaker and circuit.
