The Differences Between Breakers and Fuses:
Breakers and fuses are necessary in a home to control the amount of electricity entering your outlets. If an outlet is going to become overloaded, the breaker will trip or the fuse will blow. This occurs to protect you and your family from electrocution and also to protect your appliances from shorting out or also getting overloaded.
The main difference between a fuse and a breaker is the method they use to interrupt the flow of electricity. A breaker is more modern and works with a spring-loaded contact that trips when overloaded. Breakers can be interrupted an infinite amount of times since they can always be switched back.
A fuse does the same general function, except it uses a strip of metal that safely melts when overloaded to interrupt the electricity. Fuses are often used in older homes and can only be blown once before replacement is necessary.
