This service includes inspection and investigation to determine the cause of power failure, identifying the issue and conducting repairs and upgrades which are necessary for getting the power systems up and running again.

Short circuit repairs

A short circuit is a condition in which electricity changes its direction and doesn’t follow its established flow. This can be caused by faulty appliance wiring, loose wire connection or faulty, old or damaged wire insulation.

When dealing with a short circuit, the electrician’s job is first to locate and isolate the problem, inspect the appliances and all power cords that have been plugged into the outlets where the short circuit occurred and repair the circuit problem.

Frequently asked questions

When should I use recessed lighting?

If you want to add more light to your room, while also improving the ambience and design, you can go with recessed lights instead of ceiling lights. You can use recessed lights for your ceilings, walls or place them in the ground, to light a pathway and so on. Recessed lights are also great for rooms or areas that have lower ceilings and would seem smaller with regular ceiling lights.

What is the difference between can lights and recessed lights?

Can lights are just another word for recessed lights. Other names you can find them under include pot lights or downlights. Can lights get their name from the shape of their housing which is typically cylindrical and can-like. However, if you do not like can lights, you can get square lights, which are another type of recessed lights.

How many recessed lights can be on a circuit?

This depends mainly on breaker limitations and on the type of bulbs you plan to use. While you should always limit the circuit breaker’s load to no more than 85% of its rating, if you go with a 60-watt incandescent or halogen bulb, you’ll be able to get up to 30 of them on a 15-amp breaker, or up to 180 or more if you go with CFL or LED bulbs. In most cases, this is not an issue, as typically, you wouldn’t require that many fixtures installed.

How do I choose recessed lighting?

There is a range of sizes and types of recess lights available on the market. Depending on your particular needs you may choose to go with a standard 15 cm aperture, or if you’re looking for something more current and modern, you can go with a 7-10 cm aperture. The design of the lights and the type of recessed trim should be chosen depending on your interior or exterior design. Another thing you’ll need to consider is whether or not you want to invest in LED bulbs or go with the standard incandescent or halogen bulbs.
