Electricity in a home is
more than a convenience - it is a necessity. When a homeowner encounters
electrical issues, they are confronted with a complex web of wires,
dangerous loads and the danger of being left in the dark (literally). It
can be difficult to diagnose electrical issues in a home with wires
running through the entire property, or even inconsistent electrical
problems can be frightening. Not only do they damage equipment, but
they also pose a threat to life and property. Problems like high
electricity bills, twinkling lights, etc. indicate electrical problems.
- Poor circuit protection / no GFCI
Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) is a device that detects a low voltage
circuit and shuts down if there is a leakage current. It cuts the load
from the mains when there is residual current in the circuit.
residual current device is installed which provides protection against
direct and indirect currents, electric shock and electric fires.
differential circuit breaker is installed. GFCI cuts the circuit if
there is an imbalance between the incoming and outgoing currents.
Without IF circuit breakers, there is a risk of overheating, impact,
burning or electric fire of the power lines.
Solution: If you don't already have one, install a GFCI breaker.
- Lack of grounded connection
are connections that do not have a grounding system for reliability.
Grounding provides a path for excessive current flow in the event of a
Solution: Make sure all connections are grounded and that you have the correct grounding system.
Light bulbs often burn out. If your bulbs go out too often, it could indicate electrical problems. The bulbs can burn out if:
1. Power is too much
2. high tension,
3. Poor air circulation,
4. The bulb is too tight
5. Bad wiring on the network or circuit
you often encounter this problem, check if the bracket is loose.
Consult a professional to determine the root cause of electrical
- Flickering lights and light too bright or too dim
you see the lights flickering, or if one is lighter or darker than the
other, there are two possible reasons for this. They use different
amounts of electricity or have technical issues in the main power panel.
If the lamp has different watts, there is no problem. However, if there
is a problem with the power panel, you need to call a professional.
the device on and off may cause an electric shock. Even if the dents
are minor, it indicates that the device has an electrical issue or
wiring issues. Electric shock is a bad experience. Although they are
usually very light, which is a constant shock, they are a reminder that
lightning is dangerous when it can not be used.
shocks usually occur when you turn a device on or off. The problem may
be with the equipment or with the wiring. You can test this by plugging
in another device and verifying that the results are reproducible,
although you are only avoiding another electric shock. In most cases, it
may be best to speak to an electrician.
can plug in another device and see if you are having the same problem.
If the results are reproducible, contact an electrician to correct the
problem before anyone is injured.
of the main reasons for frequent tripping of circuit breakers is to
overload the power boards. Most homes and apartments, even for
newcomers, do not have enough electrical outlets to accommodate, for
example, a complete home entertainment unit installation. If circuit
breakers are being tripped repeatedly in your home, it may be due to
1. Never connect the power card in series.
2. Remove devices that are not in use (for example, phone chargers still use electricity when not connected).
3. Distribute your electricity needs. Do not overload a single circuit.
4. Be aware of how you connect devices around the house - what is used and what is not.
For some reasons, you can have a really big electricity bill:
1. Damaged wires and circuits
2. Leakage in electrical systems
3. Electrical appliances are older and consume more electricity
not in use, you can reduce the cost of utility bills by replacing the
devices with low cost devices and not using them. Repairs damaged cable
and identifies electrical devices that may cause voltage spikes.
- Light switches do not work
non-functioning switch is the result of poor workmanship or poor
product quality. It can also cause malfunction in wiring, circuit or

boxes have multiple wires that are connected to each other and are
designed to pull one section of wires away from another. This box also
protects the wires from damage. An open junction box increases the risk
of electric shock.
Solution: It is covered with screws provided by a professional.
electrical panel is designed to accommodate many circuit breakers.
These fit into the circuit breaker slot. A tandem circuit breaker looks
like two switches, but it does not require two locations. So when people
put a breaker together in one slot instead of two single pole breakers,
they over-circuit the panel. An over-circuit panel is a fire hazard and
Solution: Call an electrician to replace the panel with a larger load or to add a sub-panel.
electrical problem and its solution is circuit breaker. If too many
energy-intensive objects are being fed from the same source, the
likelihood that your circuit breakers will travel - this is a good sign,
though - means that your home is safe.
Reduce the number of energy-intensive devices drawn from a single
source. Or use the following settings. If this does not solve the
problem, call the electrician to check the wiring and determine the
reasons for the trip.
is a metal and is more susceptible to oxidation when it conducts
electricity. So when it comes in contact with other combustible
materials such as wood, plastic etc., it can catch fire.
Solution: Use copper instead of aluminum. Copper is cheap and only ductile, but does not have the oxidizing properties of aluminum.
