Amperage issues occur when too much electricity is transferred across wires than the circuit can manage. This results in overloads, blown fuses and damaged appliances/electronic devices. If your home is experiencing any of the above electrical issues that is a clear indicate of amperage issues that need to be addressed by a residential electrician right away.
