What is an electrical fault?

Just what exactly is an electrical fault, and how can you identify one? Simply put, an electrical fault is an abnormal or dysfunctional condition in any electrical system, which is causing a problem with the normal electrical flow. Most modern electrical systems and devices are built to be fairly reliable, especially at the up-market end of the quality scale. However, when an electrical fault does occur, it can pose a serious risk.
For example, a common electrical fault is a short circuit between the supply and the ground. This can create a fire risk, which is always one of the biggest concerns with electrical equipment. An oversupply of energy could cause overheating in wires and devices, which might lead to combustion. As this demonstrates, it’s important to deal with an electrical fault as soon as you find one!
Electrical faults can have a variety of causes, from equipment failure to human error. It can be as simple as somebody accidentally cutting a wire (something that, in our experience, is all too common!). If you notice damaged wires or electrical equipment, or an electrical system playing up, you may well have found a potential electrical fault. Whatever you do find, you should call a professional to carry out electrical repairs. And, of course, the best way to identify electrical faults is to have a professional carry out periodical electrical testing.
