How to fix each electrical fault
A power surge is easy to fix. You will need to switch off or unplug some of the electrical appliances with the highest consumption, turn down the circuit breakers and wait a few seconds before switching them on again, from right to left, with the last one being the main switch. If, after doing this, the power has not returned, you should contact a qualified electrician who will check everything properly. Moreover, if the electricity comes back but the ICP trips, often the logical thing to do is to increase the contracted power.
In the event of a short circuit or faults in the electrical system or wiring, you should call a technician as soon as possible to prevent further damage. We have said it many times before, but an electrical fault can lead to a house fire. The professional who visits us will have to check the electrical installation, to see if there is a need to change a cable, several cables, or the whole network. You can also check the appliance that you suspect may have tripped the fuses. Any of these actions are complex and require electrical knowledge, so don't take any chances.
