As winter sets in household electrical circuits are put under great strain. And with so many people spending more time at home during these troubled times problems are arising.
Sharpe Services is getting emergency calls to properties experiencing frequent temporary power outages caused by overloaded circuits tripping safety switches.
Often this is caused by householders using multiple power boards instead of getting more power points added to a room.
Another major issue is water entering poorly-sealed switchboards, shorting out vital components.
Resetting the circuit breaker may only be dealing with these symptoms. There are many reasons circuits get overloaded and only a licensed electrician can guarantee you and your family’s safety.
Don’t ignore warning signs! These include flickering lights and intermittent tripping of safety switches. Buzzing sounds in your switchboard or the faint smell of burning plastic are other warnings.
In winter houses can become subject to damage from nesting birds and rodents, which often attack electric wire cabling, creating a significant fire hazard.
When was the last time you had your electrical system checked for safety and performance? Is your home more than 25 years old? Does it have the best safety protection?
Although similar in appearance, circuit breakers and safety switches provide different protective functions. Circuit breakers prevent circuit overload but only safety switches protect householders from the threat of electrocution when an electrical fault occurs.
Surge arrestors are also a good option for householders wanting to fully protect electrical components in voltage spikes and lightning strikes.
Safety checks and upgrades won’t break the budget.
