Power Trip/Power Failure


About A1 Handyman Power Trip/Power Failure Services

Power trips or power failures transpire when electrical circuits undergo interruptions in the flow of electricity, leading to an abrupt loss of power to devices or entire electrical systems. In such cases, seeking assistance from professional electrician handymen is advisable.

At A1 Handyman Singapore, we deliver prompt solutions to all power trip or power failure issues. With a team comprising licensed electricians, we ensure that our customers are in capable hands.

Causes of Power Tripping or Power Failure in Singapore


Here are potential causes for power tripping or power failure in Singapore.

  • Overloading: Power overloading stands as a primary cause of electricity failure or power tripping. This occurrence arises from plugging in high-power-consuming devices into a single outlet or through extensions. It’s worth noting that a significant number of household power failures stem from this issue.
  • Construction Excavation: Excavation during construction or expansion work poses another threat. Land digging in these scenarios might lead to damaging or breaking underground wires, resulting in power failures.
  • Tree Interference: Surprisingly, large trees can also trigger power outages. Roots growing onto wires due to natural growth or severe weather causing trees to uproot can damage wires, though such incidents are relatively rare in Singapore due to the careful practices of local electricians.
  • Electrical Equipment Malfunctions: Even with proper electrical installation and maintenance, electrical equipment failures can still happen. Technical glitches or overheating can cause failures in equipment like wires, transformers, switches, connectors, or panels, leading to power outages. Promptly contacting an emergency electrician is advisable in such situations.


What to Avoid During Power Failures or Trips?

During a power trip or failure, the sudden halt of essential electrical appliances such as the air conditioner, water heater, and refrigerator can significantly disrupt daily routines. This inconvenience highlights the importance of understanding how to navigate such situations. Knowing what actions to avoid becomes crucial in such instances.

These are the things to avoid during power failures or trips:

  • Forget to unplug: Ensure to unplug electronic devices to prevent potential damage from power surges when the electricity is restored.
  • Touch a Downed Wire: Avoid touching any fallen or exposed wires as they may be live and pose a severe risk of electrocution.
  • Use a Grill or Generator Indoors: Never operate grills or generators indoors due to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep these devices in well-ventilated outdoor areas.
  • Let Your Phone Battery Die: Keep your phone charged or conserve its battery to maintain communication during power outages.
  • Use Candles: Avoid using candles for illumination as they pose fire hazards. Use flashlights or battery-powered lanterns instead.
  • Open The Fridge or Freezer: Minimize opening the fridge or freezer to retain the cool temperature and prevent food spoilage during extended power outages.
How to Choose a Reliable Electrician for Power Failures and Trips in Singapore


Choosing a reliable electrician for power failures and trips in Singapore involves considering several factors:

  • EMA License Validity: Ensure the electrician holds a valid Energy Market Authority (EMA) license in Singapore. This accreditation signifies competence in handling various electrical issues within the regulations and standards set by the authority.
  • Years of Experience and Updated Knowledge: Look for electricians with extensive experience and updated knowledge of the latest techniques and procedures required for electrical repairs. A well-experienced electrician is better equipped to handle diverse electrical issues effectively.
  • Availability of Emergency Services: Prioritize electricians offering emergency services available daily across the island. Quick access to emergency electrical services ensures prompt resolution of power-related issues.
  • Free Consultation and Quotes: Seek electricians who provide free consultation and quotes after discussing the specific electrical problem over the phone with the client. Reputable electrical maintenance companies in Singapore often offer these consultations without any service fee obligation.
  • Portfolio of Previous Projects: Evaluate the electrician’s portfolio showcasing previous electrical projects as proof of their experience. A diverse range of completed projects reflects their expertise and capabilities in handling different electrical tasks.
