Electrical installation refers to the cabling and fitting of electrical wires. This task of installing wires is generally carried out by licensed electricians.
The signs that warn us that the electrical installations are becoming unsafe include sockets and plugs that have brown scorch marks on their outer surfaces, switches are hot to touch, flickering lights, tripping of circuit breakers, and fuses that blow.
All such signs give you a clear indication that your home electrical wiring needs upgrading. To safely accomplish the task of handling such repairs or upgrading, it is wise to hire a licensed electrician. Moreover, they know accomplish electrical project following electrical code of practice.
In the next section, we will get to know, how to handle the unfortunate event of fuse blow carefully. When an event of an electrical fault occurs, it results in fuse blow or circuit breaker tripping. As a result, the power supply to that area of home will be cut-off, to prevent fire.
In order to make your house electrical system work properly, it needs to replace the fuse because the fuse that once blows could not work.
Before you start working on fuse replacement, it is a strict advice to turn off the main power and also the electronics that are attached on that fuse.

A fuse with inadequate current rating may lead to fire due to flow of excessive current flow through it.
If the fuse continues to blow, it is an advice to immediately call a licensed electrician. Let’s understand the safe procedure of replacing faulty fuse:
