Types of Electrical Faults & Their Causes

When you face any type of electrical fault on your property, it throws you off track and the only concern at that point of time, is to get that problem fixed as soon as possible. Some DIY enthusiasts try their hands at fixing these faults; however it isn’t something that we at Quick Connect Electrical recommend. Electricity can be very dangerous and if you don’t have professional electrical training and certification, you shouldn’t try to fix any electrical faults, big or small.

Types of faults

It’s important that you don’t delay in calling in a 24 Hour Electrician in Sydney to attend to the issue, and focus on getting the problem fixed within the shortest possible time. Here are some common electrical faults that can crop up on your commercial or residential property:

  • Excessive electrical load on wiring- When you  are getting any new wiring done, it’s important to ensure that the circuit breakers in that system are able to bear the load of the appliances & equipment  that are being used there. If the load is too high compared to the capacity of  the systems, that will only impact the condition of the wiring & other components in the system; and the circuit breaker will trip.
  • Excessive load on circuit- In most cases, incorrect use is the culprit when it comes to load on the circuit. Sometimes people use outlet extenders and plug-in multiple cords into it, and this can result in excessive load on the circuits. This is why it’s important that you have separate circuits for all the heavy electrical appliances in your home or commercial establishment.
  • Too many wires crammed into main electrical box– its important not to pack the wiring too tightly, in the main electrical box. This prevents accidental punching/nailing of the wiring when the installation is taking place. Damaged wiring can cause a short circuit/electric shock.
  • Loose connections within main panel– The neutral as well as the breaker connections inside the central electrical panel must be correctly installed. Make it a point to get regular electrical maintenance done- in case there are any potential problems, these can be brought to light and fixed before they escalate.

If you have decades-old wiring installations, it’s important that you get it replaced without delay. These older installations aren’t designed to bear the kind of electrical loads that current day electrical appliances demand.  Any stress on the system can result in problems such as melted wiring, arcing, short circuits and blown fuses.  Always keep handy the number of a local commercial or Residential Electrician in Sydney.
