What’s the reason for my power failure?
Electrical Switch Problems
If your switch isn’t working properly, it is highly possible that the electrical switch is bypassed. This adds significantly to the electrical load on the property and circuit breaker. Hence, if the electrical switch is not functional, your threshold for circuit breaker trips is going to be rather low. If you are experiencing circuit breaker trips even with very little electrical equipment being in use, this could be the source of your problem. Let the experienced electricians diagnose your power trips today.
Electrical overload of power sockets
One thing that may not be an electrical fault is that your property simply consumes too much electricity. Have a look at what is active in your homes and offices today and you may notice that there are a lot of electrical components that are running at the same time. You may consider switching to energy saving alternatives, such as the appliances with Green Energy Saving ticks.
Circuit Breaker issue
If your number of electrical appliances are low and do not consume much electricity, then perhaps your circuit breaker is the issue in the property. If your circuit breaker is faulty, then it is possible that it trips the circuit at a much lower voltage than expected. If this is the case, you should employ an experienced handyman in Singapore to help diagnose the issue.
If your property is constantly getting power trips, your wiring could be the issue. If your wiring is drawing too much current, the wiring’s insulation could be compromised. For wires that are not properly insulated, it is best to contact a licensed electrical worker in Singapore to assist you, as the live wires are dangerous if handled without proper insulating equipment.
What we’ll help you look at
First thing we look at are the individual electrical switches in your houses. Given that the problematic switch could be anywhere around the house, we will test each switch individually to find out if it is the source of the problem.
The circuit breaker may be the one at fault as it could have faulty connections. While it is possible to keep resetting the circuit breaker, it is an inconvenience to have a circuit breaker that is not working correctly. It is therefore important to check if the circuit breaker is functioning correctly and should be replaced immediately as a safety hazard if it is found faulty.
Another possible fault could be in the wiring of the house. If the wires are not insulated or connected properly, the current in the wires could end up being multiplied. This could be main reason why frayed wires or old wires could become a problem and start tripping your circuit breakers often.
What you can do when you encounter a power trip
Check the circuit breaker
Turn the power socket off
As explained earlier, one of the main reasons for a power trip is an electrical overload. By inspecting the power outlet, you are able to find out if an electrical overload was causing the issue. If the electrical appliance originally connected to the power outlet was removed and the switched turned off, the circuit breaker should not trip again. For safety reasons, if you are unsure about whether there has been an overload there, do not use the power outlet in question or call an expert in power trip in Singapore.
