Electrician Maintenance in Dubai

Dubai is one of the world's most futuristic cities and many people dream of living here or even just come for a visit. Personally, I cannot find another city in a different country to which I can compare with Dubai. Therefore, this futuristic city is unique in so many ways. It is a melting pot of cultures, traditions and, there's always a lot of activity going on, both during the day and night.

Living in this amazing city comes with many benefits and perks. Customer service is super high. Every business makes sure that their customers are satisfied and happy. Also living in Dubai is very comfortable and there is an app for everything. Literally. You can basically get whatever you wish through an app delivered right to your door, no matter in which area of Dubai you live.

Like any other city in the world, whether you live in a house, an apartment, a villa, or a palace, one day or another, you will have to face some maintenance issues. Some of the most common maintenance issues that residents in the UAE, especially those living in Dubai face, are electrical issues. 

In this day and age, we cannot survive without electricity and therefore, using electricity all the time in our home or workplace will cause electrical maintenance issues from time to time. 

In an article published in 2016, Khaleej Times said that electrical faults are the main reason behind the UAE fires. Moreover, according to the Dubai Statistics Centre, electrical sparks caused 22% of the fires, of which 27% occurred in Bur Dubai. These rates and statistics demonstrate how serious electrical issues can be if not treated properly or not treated by a professional company. 

In another article published in 2019, Khaleej Times also advised its readers to use approved cables and electric devices. The article also reported that "a number of fire accidents were caused by poor quality electric cables, improper connections carried out by non-experts, short circuits and overloading of electric networks. Lack of periodic maintenance of electrical appliances was also to be blamed."

The National News also reported that the fire that broke in Dubai's Zen Tower in 2018 is believed to have started on the first floor due to a shorted circuit, before quickly spreading to the whole tower. More than 100 residents were forced to flee the tower and find alternative places where to live. This shows that someone's carelessness and untreated electrical fault caused damage and a loss of a home to many other families and children or God forbid someone's life.

What are the most common electrical faults in Dubai?

For residents in Dubai, it doesn't come as a surprise to hear about building fires, because unfortunately, they are a common occurrence and the most common reasons are short circuitsdamaged wires, and poorly installed electrical systems and appliances

What are Short Circuits?

When an electrical appliance is switched on electrical current flows through the wire, completing the electrical 'circuit' and causing the appliance to operate. The amount of flowing current is called 'amperage'. Most lighting circuits in the home are 15 amp circuits. Most electric dryers and air conditioners require larger 30 amp circuits. Moreover, the amount of electrical power needed to make an appliance operate is called 'wattage' and is a function of the amount of current flowing through the wire (amperage), and the pressure in the system (voltage).

That being said, a short circuit definition in layman's terms is a problem in an electrical circuit where two or more wires that are not supposed to come in contact with each other touch. A short circuit can result in a very high current flowing through the circuit. Also, a short circuit also happens when there is a bypass of electrical current. 

In addition, the wire thickness and size, outlets, and circuit breakers are designed for an anticipated electrical load. Deteriorated insulation is one of the most frequent causes of short circuits.

Electrical Surges

For most cases, electrical surges are caused by heavy rain and bad weather: When a lightning strikes on electrical wires it could cause the wiring to malfunvtion and damage the power lines. You're probably thinking that since you're living in Dubai, you're not bound to face such issue. But unfortunately, electrical surges can also be occured due to faulty appliances or bad wiring. 

Another issue that can arise from faulty appliances is a dip in power which is also known as sags. This is mostly caused by faulty devices (ex: a faulty ac) that is connected to the power outlet.What happens is that these appliances don't work as they normally should and therefore pull more power than they were intended to which causes a power surcharge in the system. But don't worry, if you get in touch with the best maintenance company in dubai, they'll know how to help you and fix all you electrical problems.

Lighting Issues

Another issue you might be dealing with might include lighting. This is a minot issue and is not considered as a dangerous one to have. But iut sure is annoying! Lighting issues would include a dim or low light bulbs. It could also mean that the light switches are not properly switching ON/OFF, Usually, this is due to a fault in the installation, wiring, outler ot circuit. The resolution of this problem is easy and won't take time from a professional electrician.

How to avoid short circuits and electrical failure at your home

It is important that when a building is under construction, an Electrician Near Me Dubai come to visit to make sure the electrical system is in compliance with the international building and electrical codes. Note that only licensed electricians are permitted to install electrical systems. In the UAE, most homes have two incoming voltages: 120 volts for lighting and appliance circuits and 240 volts for larger air-conditioning and electric dryer circuits.

Things to keep in mind for an electrical safe home and work environment:
