What Can Cause Electrical Faults?
While electrical faults can seemingly happen at random, there are a few notorious causes. At Sierra Electrical Ltd., our electricians in Edmonton can find out what’s causes these failures and work to remedy the situation. Among the most common causes for electrical faults include:
Weather: Lightning strikes, heavy rains and heavy winds can all affect overhead lines, conductors, and other electrical components. These types of weather conditions can interrupt the power supply and damage electrical installations.
Equipment issues: Over time, electrical equipment can wear down just like any other type of equipment. Failures by generators, motors, transformers and more can cause short circuit faults from malfunctioning and ageing.
Errors: Faults can also be caused by human errors like choosing improper equipment and devices, or using the wrong parts after service or maintenance.

What Are the Dangers of Electrical Faults?
As most people know, issues and problems with electrical equipment and components should not be taken lightly. That’s why it important to always have professional electric contractors in Edmonton perform any work at your home or business. At Sierra Electrical Ltd., we provide our electrical troubleshooting and repair services to clients of all sizes in the residential and commercial/industrial sectors. If you think your home or business may be at risk for electrical faults, we encourage you to get your systems checked out immediately. If not, you could be at risk for dangers like:
Over current flow: When a fault occurs it can create a very low impedance path for the current flow, which can result in current being drawn from the supply. This sort of issue can cause tripping of relays, as well as damage to insulation and components.
Injuries: Electrical faults can cause shocks to operating personnel. Depending on the severity of the shock, it can even lead to death.
Equipment loss: Heavy currents due to circuit faults put components at risk for being completely burnt out. This can lead to devices and equipment working improperly.
Fires: Short circuits can cause flashover and sparks from the ionization of air between conducting paths, which can cause fires.
