Electrical faults are something that can and do occasionally arise on commercial as well as residential properties; and when that happens, it’s important that you get a skilled and reliable Residential Electrician in Sydney to fix them for you. Electrical jobs should never be turned into a DIY project and the electrical contractor you hire for the job should be able to handle all types of electrical issues, including any faults that may arise in the system. Here are some of the common electrical faults that we at Quick Connect Electrical come across:
- Load on the electrical wiring– Whenever any electrical installation is being done, it’s important to ensure that the wiring as well as the circuit breaker is able to bear the load of appliances and equipment that’s going to be used on the premises. If the load is much higher, that would only cause the wiring installation to deteriorate and the circuit breaker will keep tripping.
- Excessive wires inside electrical boxes– A minimum distance of 30 mm should be maintained within the wires and the frame inside an electrical box. This will prevent them from accidently getting cut when any nailing work is being done. Damaged wiring can result in electric shock or even a short circuit
- Too much load on the outlet– Incorrect usage is generally the cause of this electrical fault. Sometimes, people use multiple outlet extenders to connect heavy load appliances and this causes an overload on the circuit, Whenever any heavy-duty appliance such as an air-conditioner, washing machine etc., is being used, it’s important to ensure that it has an exclusive power point.
- Loose wire connections– Care should be taken to ensure that the neutral and breaker connections within the electrical panel are all secure. It’s a good idea to hire the service of a credible electrical company to carry out regular electrical system check-ups. This measure can go a long way in preventing electrical faults from cropping up. A loose connection inside a main panel will lead to heating in the circuit and poses a fire risk.
