Breaker being blown

During our recent heat spell in May I added an air conditioner to my home office in my master bedroom. Every time I turned on the air conditioner it blew my breaker. Using a surge protection power bar prevented my need as a homeowner to walk from my 3rd floor to my basement. This was Sunday. I saw the excellent reviews on Electric Avenue & called Tyler. He took my call & listened to my situation. With the days getting hotter, my wifes hot flashes were unbearable. He came that Monday. He explained that though this air conditioner rated on machine for 10.5amps & the breaker wiring rated for a max of 15, no air conditioner amperage is as listed. In fact with the tester on the breaker, with just the air conditioner on, it climbed to 14.5amps. Tyler was candid, buy an air conditioner, turn off everything but air conditioner & one other appliance, or have wiring replaced behind drywall for higher amperage. So its Netflix & really be chill. Tyler came right away, took the guesswork out, & we were able to know what our options were. Peace of mind has no $ value. Tyler is a master electrician who is professional, patient, & understanding of his clients needs. We highly recommend him & his company.
