Power failures are one of the most troublesome issues you can face. Besides making your home darker and more difficult to navigate, they also prevent important household appliance products from working. In addition, recharging important electrical devices such as flashlights becomes impossible as well.
Knowing the causes of a power failure and the ways to prevent it can help you avoid the problems mentioned. Once you’ve been able to familiarize with the factors leading to a power failure, you can easily determine when you need to call a reliable electrical contractor or electrician to do the needed electrical works. Moreover you’ll be able to prevent accidents much faster as well as avoid any potential hazards.
Two Main Power Failure Causes
- Power Overload
Power failures are usually caused by power trips which can result from an overloaded circuit. This occurs when multiple high power-consuming appliances are plugged in simultaneously into your power sockets.
- Short Circuit
A short circuit occurs when two heated wires make contact with the circuit board’s neutral wires. It usually starts as a big spark and can cause a fire if not attended to immediately.
How To Prevent Power Failures
- Avoid Plugging Too Many Devices
As mentioned, overloading occurs when too many appliances are plugged in at the same time into your installed electrical outlets. So in order to prevent it, only plug in devices or products which consume power within the installed power socket’s limit. Also make sure to plug your electrical products one at a time.
- Check If Your Socket Is In Good Condition
To prevent a short circuit from occurring, make sure that the plugs which you insert into your power socket installations are free from damage. Furthermore, see to it that the black and white wires don’t make contact with each other. If you notice a burning smell coming from your electrical outlets, turn off your main power supply immediately and have them replaced.
- Contact An Experienced Electrician
If you experience confusion in attempting the above-mentioned solutions, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced and licensed electrician to help you out instead. That way, you can protect yourself from accidents such as electric socket and switch shocks as well as prevent further electrical damage.
