I reset the breaker but my power is still out, what do I do?
First try to determine the cause of tripped breaker and correct it. In order to reset a breaker in your electrical panel, you must move (push) the breaker firmly to the off position (this resets it) and then push it back to the on position. Most people fail to push the breaker firmly past the off (tripped) position and assume it is reset. If you perform the correct reset procedure, still have no power, and are not sure what caused it to trip, call us. Breakers can wear out over time if they are tripped too frequently.
