Common Electrical Problems
There always comes a time when we have electrical problems in our homes, if these problems are not treated seriously and with the correct care then you may find yourself with a much bigger problem in the near future. Here are some of the common problems that people may face.

  1. Light switches not working properly, this is sometimes due to bad workmanship or a product that is not 100% up to standard. If you begin to notice a switch is notice in your home that the switches are not working then it is also possible that the switch has been superseded, this can also be connected to bad wiring behind the plug or a break in the circuit. Consult a electrician if you are having these issues. 
  2. A circuit breaker tripping is usually the first sign that something is wrong, the first that should be rememebred is that it is very common even in new modern houses for the circuit board to overload. Houses usually dont produce enough power to support a large system or systems at once, to preven this from happening. Unplug all major devices you arent using (Microwaves, TV, Washing Machines) at that time. Spread your electrical needs all aorund, do not burden a singular circuit with a days fullof electrical use. 
  3. When your lights are either too bright or too dim, there are two usual problems that could be occuring, it may be a different type of light with a different wattage, all bulbs must be checked and must be identical in each room. Bad main neutral connection, this cannot be sorted until a proffesional comes in to look.
  4. Light bulbs burining out too often. This can be due to quite a few electrical issues: Wattage is too high Insulation is too close to the light, bad wiring to mains, If flickering possibly bad connection on the circuit.
