How To Protect Electrical Appliances From A Sudden Power Trip

(Last Updated On: August 26, 2020)

Following general electrical safety tips in Singapore is important since power consumption tends to be quite high. That said, many homeowners fail to conduct proper electrical maintenance. Moreover, most of them are known to use various electrical appliances at the same time thereby putting them at risk of a power trip.

In order to prevent your electrical appliances from becoming unusable, it’s important that you know how to protect them from sudden power trips. That way, you’ll be able to use them without having to worry about potential electrical damage.

 

Try Disabling Your Power Supply

The effects of a power failure on your electrical appliances can be extremely dangerous. The risk becomes even greater when they’re left on despite no one using them. One thing you can do to prevent power trips on your electrical appliances is by disabling your power supply. By doing this, you can prevent them from experiencing damage after sudden power failures or during thunderstorms. Moreover, you’ll be able to prevent major accidents such as electric shocks.

 

Use A Surge Protector

Turning your power supply on and off constantly to avoid damage to your house’s light switches and appliances can be extremely tiring. In that case, you may want to purchase a surge protector instead so as to better avoid needed electrical repairs. A surge protector is a device created to monitor the flow of electricity. In addition, it constantly monitors and measures power supply levels. There are two types of surge protectors namely:

Buying a point of sale surge protector would be a wise decision if you want to protect only a few electrical appliances such as fridges, washing machines, and gadgets. Moreover, it is quite energy-efficient and might prove more convenient if your home only consumes less electricity.

On the other hand, if you live in an HDB flat and are not sure what to protect in case of a power outage, then you might want to have a licensed electrician install a whole house surge protector. That way, you’ll be able to protect all appliances in your home.

Whichever type you purchase, using a surge protector is a much wiser way of ensuring no electrical appliance malfunctions due to a power failure. You won’t need to turn your electrical switches on and off time and again and you’ll be able to conserve energy as well.

Conclusion

If you’re frequently struggling with power trip issues, then it might be time to call a reliable electrician to conduct electrical troubleshooting for you. Otherwise, you might face more severe electrical issues especially if you haven’t had electrical maintenance done for a long time.
