Few electrical installation errors commonly seen in Singapore homes

  • All electrical wirings should be placed correctly and secured firmly with the use of clips or staples. Ensure that these staples are also not placed too tightly around such electrical wirings to prevent any damages on the cables itself. This is because such faulty electrical wirings may lead to eventual electrical problems. On the other hand, electrical wirings that are loosely installed can lead to overheating of such cables, which can easily cause an accidental fire. Hence, correct and professional electrical wiring installation is essential for ensuring the safety of residents in Singapore.
  • Most inexperienced electricians may still lack the necessary knowledge required to conduct such electrical installations. As such, they may inadvertently use electrical wirings of the wrong size and length, which can seriously pose a potential danger to electrical appliances at home. To avoid such problems, only work with an experienced and licensed electrician in Singapore who are able to install wires with proper dimensions as set by local electrical authorities. Homeowners should also only work with electricians who have undergone the electrical installation course from recognised institutions in Singapore.

  • The electrical wires should be adequately covered with plastic cables, without which the wires may be damaged very easily. Moreover, electrical junction boxes of the correct size should be used during the electrical wiring installation in order to protect the electrical cables. These junction boxes should never be left open carelessly, to avoid any accident caused due to the touching of the live wires. Hence, these boxes should be firmly covered with metal lids to ensure safety.
  • Avoid short circuits by ensuring that suitable circuit breakers are used during the electrical installation. Your electrician should strictly follow the electrical installation guide provided by the EMA or Energy Market Authority in Singapore.
  • The junction boxes should not be overloaded with too many electrical cables passing through one place, as it may lead to excessive heating and house fires. Hence, it is best to use larger junction boxes and has correctly sized cables passing through these boxes to avoid any such accidents. Ask your electrician to go through his electrical installation checklist to prevent any mistakes and ensure that all the necessary tasks have been completed.
  • Light installations may also be incorrectly done such in the case of wrong placements of live and neutral wires. Reliable electricians should always opt to use a circuit tester to ensure that the correct electrical wiring installation is done.

Common errors made while installing a ceiling fan

Several mistakes are often made when a homeowner tries to install a ceiling fan by himself. Without the help of a professional electrician, they are more likely to start the electrical installation process without measuring the height of the ceiling and the dimension of the ceiling slope, which can prove to be a big mistake.

If you’re replacing an old ceiling fan, don’t forget to remove the old junction box first before moving on to the new installation. Certified electricians are required to follow all these safety measures during ceiling fan installations in Singapore to prevent any accidents during the installation process.

Additionally, the electric supply should also be switched off from the main supply of the house during the installation of the fans. They should also have all the necessary tools and knowledge of safety measures before carrying out the ceiling fan installation.

It is best for the electrician to follow all the local rules laid down for electrical installation and maintenance services. This ensures the safety of both the electricians and residents. Correct installations of the lights, fans, and other electrical appliances can lead to future savings from electrical repairs. Meanwhile, improper installations will not only incur greater costs but also cause potential accidents.
