An electrical installation overload is a problem that happens frequently in many buildings, and puts safety and the life quality of its residents at risk. This type of damage happens with the excess of electronic and household appliances connected to the electrical grid at the same time.
Although it’s most common, not only older houses are subject to overload. Thus, a few caution steps must be taken to avoid that the problem aggravates and culminates in a short-circuit.
The overload gives some signals that may suggest that an electrical maintenance is necessary. Be aware of frequent disarming of the circuit breakers, because this is the first alert that something is wrong. Burning of fuses, lighting failures and electrical conductors that appear to be dried, cracked, or perhaps with burnt smell, also require attention.
If there is a need to execute a repair, it will probably be necessary to acquire new electrical materials, which means, circuit breakers, outlets, wires, light bulbs and others.
When temperature drops, it is normal to use devices such as electrical showers and heaters, for instance, for temperature control, but they require a higher current. Which means, the electricity used is more concentrated due to domestic heating. It causes a bigger incidence of overloads during the winter, and that’s why you must be extra careful on cold days.
Don’t wait up to look for an electrician or electrical engineer. Prevention is the cheapest and safest way of dealing with electrical grid related problems.
This was our explanation about how to avoid electrical installation overload. Follow the news in our blog, where we cover the importance of a safe industrial electrical installation and the use of quality materials, such as junction boxes, cable-glands and conduits, check it out!
