Why do people install circuit breakers in their homes?
Circuit breakers protect your home by stopping the flow of electricity if there is too much amperage draw. If there were no circuit breakers installed, then you could overload wires; when too much is plugged into a circuit, or the circuit shorts out, the wires can heat up very quickly and cause a fire. Circuit Breakers prevent this by disconnecting the circuit before the wires get hot enough to catch fire.
What should you do if your electricity is out?
First check with other people in nearby homes to find out if there is a general power outage. If there is, call the power company to ask about it. If everyone else has power, SAFELY look in your main service panel, where the meter is, to check if any of the breakers or fuses are tripped or have blown. If so, turn breakers back on or replace fuses. If they still trip CALL AN ELECTRICIAN.

What is wrong when you switch from fan to air conditioner and it shuts the breaker in the electricity box?
You're actually OPENING the breaker. And it means you're drawing too much power. 1 air conditioner=about 10 box fans. Try unplugging things using the same circuit. An air conditioner draws a lot of juice. An A/C and a microwave, for example, are too much for most homes to handle. Your breaker box should (hopefully) tell you what breaker goes where.

What is the place in the home that contains the circuit breakers?
The ciruit breaker box. This is usually mounted near the main power source in the home. Try the basement, the back porch, or near the kitchen. If all else fails, go outside and look where the power meter is. The breaker box should be nearby inside the home. In many homes the electrical panel is in the basement. In homes that do not have basements the electrical panel is placed in the garage.
How many amps is standard in a common household circuit breaker?
For the US, the two common values are 15 and 20 amps, with 20 being the most common in newer homes and 15 more common in older homes. Which one is used is determined by what size of wiring is run. 15A breakers feed 14 AWG wire, and 20A breakers must use 12 AWG or larger. If you simply replace a 15A breaker with a 20, you will create a fire hazard.
