Power Failure – Adelaide
Locating the source of the problem
Your electricity at home might have gone off for a number of reasons, but in the event of a power failure Adelaide you most likely have to check if the cause is in your home. Faulty appliances or blown broken bulbs could most probably be the reason of a power outage causing the fuse to blow and electricity to switch off. You will need to firstly, check your trip switches or fuses to see if there is a fault in your appliances or wiring. If you find that the trip switch is off or a fuse has blown, it is likely that one of your appliances has a fault or there are problems in the wiring of your home. It is better that you call your local licensed electricians even if you are confident of the matter to check with the issue.
However if this isn’t the case –and there is a blackout everywhere around you – you will need to stay safe in your house for the duration of the cut.
Switch off your appliances
Turn off all your appliances in times of a power failure Adelaide except a room light, just so that you can know when the power is back on. Fridges and freezers are the worst to have without power as all the contents will start to thaw, so it is important that all doors and windows remain closed to keep the contents cooler for longer. Once power is back on you will have to check for food being defrosted or gone bad due to the power cut.
Most Importantly, insure that all electric heaters and cooking appliances are switched off and have no lying debris around that could be hazardous e.g kitchen towels, paper, oil spray and so on.
Mostly we take measures to make our homes more energy efficient but have no idea how our home will deal in the case of no electricity. It could help to get to know where there are current power outages on a power outage map and for ETSA power outages to be informed.
It is always better to ensure that in case of no electricity you still have alternative forms of light and heat, such as torches fitted with new batteries, candles and matches, battery-operated lights and heaters or portable gas fires. However, with portable gas fires you will need to be extra cautious and place them on non-flammable surfaces away from any furnishings also to never leave them unattended.
