What’s the Difference Between a Fuse and a Circuit Breaker?
Fuses and circuit breakers are both devices used to protect electrical systems from overloads, short circuits, and other faults. The main difference between them is how they function. Fuses are simple, disposable devices designed to melt and break the circuit when a certain current level is exceeded. They need to be replaced once they blow. On the other hand, circuit breakers are reusable devices that trip automatically when a fault is detected. They can be reset after tripping, eliminating the need for replacement. Additionally, circuit breakers are more reliable and can provide better protection than fuses, as they can trip faster and more accurately in response to faults.
I called before to schedule an air duct cleaning, and it got disconnected. Does the cleaning include the fans in the bathroom?
We send a service expert to check your home, which costs $99 that will be waived once you proceed with the cleaning. The technician will need to check your fans first to know if it is possible. Our equipment is usually for air vents, but our service experts can do it if it's easy to access the bathroom fan.
I'm returning a call about an appointment on Monday that has scheduling issues. I have a couple of appointments for different properties throughout the city. I've talked to the tenant, and he's available to reschedule for late afternoon.
Yeah. This one is for the Whirlpool fridge. We've moved the schedule to 5 to 7 PM on Monday. I'll inform the technician of the new schedule. See you on Monday.
I requested a new installation of ductless mini-split air conditioning for a house. What's the earliest schedule?
We can give you a free estimate and free consultation if you like. The earliest is tomorrow between 8am and 10am. The specialist will call you 30 minutes prior.
What size wire do I need for 60 amps?
A 4-gauge wire is recommended for 60-amp appliances, such as an electric furnace or a large electric heater. Even though it's common practice to use 6-gauge wire for 60-amp breakers, the 4-gauge wire will provide better results if you install a 60-amp subpanel. Remember that a 60-amp breaker panel controlling several circuits can draw up to 60 amps before needing the subpanel breaker trips.
Why do I need to fill my boiler every day?
You are losing water either from air valves passing steam or from a leaking condensate return line. Either way, this is a serious concern as each time the system needs new water, new oxygen is added, and this causes system deterioration. Let us determine the cause by checking the obvious problems first. Likely it is a quick repair, but if not, we are there to provide options and cost proposals for you to choose from.
