We always recommend a softer temperature of light; warm white is a suitable color for outdoor lighting and reduces any glare when entertaining in the back yard. Footpaths are areas that will need lighting, ensures no trips or fall while people walk at night. Install security lighting to deter unwanted guests while giving you and your family a sense of safety your home needs.

Projects in the garden should always begin with a plan. Trees, sculptures, water features, and walk paths can all be illuminated and will capture people’s attention at your garden parties. Types of garden lighting would include spike lights, bollards, LED strips, and up-lighters, and we recommend using 24v to power garden lighting. A heavy-duty cable will need to be used to run power to your lighting, and the voltage drop will need to be measured at the end of the installation; using a larger cable diameter will reduce voltage drop dependant on the load.

Residential Emergency Electrician

When emergency electrical faults happen at home, it sends the household into chaos and disruption. Not only will you lose power, but you could potentially have safety hazards arising in your home. In the case of a blackout, before you call our emergency electricians, check to see if your neighborhood is also in complete darkness; it might just be that the supply authority has a power outage for your area. Another common cause of power failure might just be an appliance,
so be sure to unplug all appliances before calling us.

At km.electric, our fully qualified licensed electricians can carry out electrical tests using the latest test equipment and find cable faults within minutes. Once the electrician has diagnosed the fault, he will provide a detailed report outlining any remedial works or parts needed to restore power to your home. Generally, 90% of defects can be found within the first hour, a on the ball electrician will know first hand, where to start his fault-finding diagnosis.

Common Electrical Problems In Your Home

Can’t reset your safety switch or circuit breaker?

The biggest problem any home can have! These issues can cause faulty wiring, appliances, electrical switches or outlets, and even the safety switch or circuit breaker can breakdown over time. We find the fridge to be the biggest issue when it comes to tripping safety switches. The fridge houses a defrost heater in the evaporating department; it melts the ice when it builds upon the refrigerator’s coils. Unfortunately, this defrost heater can become water damaged or can have insulation damage around the element, causing the circuit breaker to trip; thankfully, for you, a heater can be replaced relatively easily. Other appliances to cause these issues can be the dishwasher, kettle, toaster, and ovens.

Faulty wiring

Damaged cabling in the roof space or underground can play havoc with your safety switches. Cable damage can become faulty over time, insulation becomes brittle on some cables, and the safety switch will detect these leakage currents and immediately cut the power supply to reduce the risk of fire damage. The black rubber cable had been extensively used from the 1940s to the 1960s. The cotton cable was mechanically protected by conduit, deteriorated over time, and easily crumbled in one’s hand, potentially causing electrocution. So before you hammer that nail or turn that screw, always check what’s below and above because just maybe you are in direct line with a live cable.

Defective safety switches

Yes, it happens; safety switches deteriorate from time to time, causing nuisance tripping or no tripping at all. A safety switch that becomes faulty could have incoming power but will read zero volts on the outgoing side, and the safety switch will remain in the ON position. When the safety switch refuses to stay on the ON position without a fault, the safety switch is another cause for a defective switch. The safety switches are easily changed out and can be done within a timeframe of 15 – 20 minutes, but the switchboard will need to be isolated from the power supply while work is being carried out.

Overloaded Circuits

a safety switch can only handle so much current. When it reaches its current rating, it will likely trip, causing power failure for that particular circuit. Why might this happen? The safety switch protects the cable, and having a few too many appliances on that specific circuit will call the safety switch into action. So exceeding the current rating of the safety switch will trip the circuit, and without it, the overloaded circuit would overheat, causing cables to burn, resulting in fire damage.
