Why does my breaker keep tripping?

There are many potential causes for a breaker to trip. The two most common reasons are; 1) the circuit has a dead short or 2) the circuit is overloaded with too many items/appliances. Fixing this issue would start with sending out service department to diagnose the issue. Our service department has over 20 years of experience with issues like this and would be happy to assist.

Why are my lights dimming and flickering?

This issue could be the result of what we refer to as a floating neutral. This means there could be a loose wire somewhere in the circuit that needs to be fixed. This issue has the potential to be very dangerous and lead to other electrical issues if it is left unresolved.
