Tripping Problems Should NOT be ignored

We get calls from time to time about fuses constantly blowing or trips tripping and quite often the customer will say...
"it has been happening for a while, but I didn't bother you until now, because now it’s happening a lot more frequently..."
What needs to be understood here is that fuses and trips blow for a reason, they are safety devices that protect a circuit.
When a fuse blows the problem is not with the fuse but with something in the circuit, if you just replace the fuse or turn the trip back on without discovering what blew it in the first place, then you could potentially damage either the cable or your equipoment or lights  in that circuit.
In some cases we can diagnose the location of the fault over the telephone making it easier to find the issue, in doing this we have helped many customers restore power for the interim period whilst waiting for an electrician.
So if you have a fuse or trip swich that blows regularly and you don't know why, consider having the circuit checked before it damages the circuit further making it a more expensive repair and or worse injuring someone. As an electrician I cannot stress the importance of this enough, I have seen the results when this type of issue is ignored, and by then it can be costly to repair / replace.
Keep Safe.

My external security lights had failed and because they were over 20 years old, several electricians felt unable to help me. I then asked Karen from Bright Sparks to get involved. She promptly surveyed the problem, gave me a competitive quote and as soon as I accepted it, gave me a firm date for the work to be undertaken. Her electricians arrived on the due date, were very friendly and tidy and worked in difficult places without problem. I definitely intend to use Bright Sparks again.

The two guys from Bright Sparks arrived promptly as arranged. Took their outdoor boots off before making their way to the job - a nice touch . Efficient, pleasant; I could not have asked for more. When the invoice arrived I was also pleasantly surprised. Overall a good experience 10/10

Karen recently came to our place on a Sunday afternoon when our kitchen suddenly lost all power. She found and fixed the problem with the breaker very quickly, and also checked the others. She did a great job and we were very pleased to get it fixed so quickly! I recommend her to friends, and will definitely call her the next time we need an electrician.

We used Bright Sparks to resolve some electrical problems. They succeeded where previous electricians failed! We found them to be reliable, courteous and fairly priced.
