UEG provides electrical emergency services to all residential and commercial premises. We will conduct visual, meter testing, isolation, and energisation of site power.
Fault can happen at any time for any of the below reason.
Overloading: When electrical systems are subjected to a higher load than they can handle, it can lead to overheating, tripped circuit breakers, or blown fuses, resulting in a breakdown.
Short circuits: A short circuit occurs when there is an unintended connection between two conductors, causing an excessive flow of current. This can lead to overheating, sparks, or electrical fires, resulting in equipment failure or power outages.
Faulty wiring: Poorly installed or aging wiring can deteriorate over time, leading to electrical breakdowns. Loose connections, frayed wires, or damaged insulation can cause power interruptions, electrical shocks, or even fires.
Power surges: Sudden increases in voltage, such as lightning strikes or utility grid fluctuations, can cause power surges. These surges can damage sensitive electronic devices, leading to breakdowns or complete failure.
Equipment failures: Electrical equipment, such as transformers, motors, or circuit breakers, can fail due to mechanical issues, overheating, or manufacturing defects. This can result in power disruptions or equipment breakdowns.
Environmental factors: Extreme weather conditions like storms, floods, or high winds can damage power lines, electrical infrastructure, or equipment, leading to electrical breakdowns.
Human error: Incorrect installation, improper maintenance, or misuse of electrical equipment can contribute to breakdowns. For instance, accidental contact with live wires, incorrect wiring connections, or inadequate grounding can lead to failures.
UEG will follow electrical safety guidelines, perform regular inspections and maintenance of electrical systems, and ensure proper installation by qualified professionals. Additionally, using surge protectors, circuit breakers, and other protective devices can help minimise the risks of electrical breakdowns.
