If you are a homeowner, you know there is nothing that takes away your comfort more than when your electricity isn’t working properly, especially if it happens out of nowhere. Without reliable lighting and power for all your devices and appliances, it won’t be long before you start getting frustrated. Electrical problems can be more than just a headache, they are typically a sign that there is a serious hazard looming. This is why you must be proactive about finding reliable, efficient, licensed and insured electricians who can complete the necessary electrical repairs. There are few signs that you need electrical repairs that are universally known. For example, if your home outlets are emitting a burning smell, please call us immediately! However, there are many other signs that you might not be aware of. Below are a few warning signs to look out for. If you are experiencing any of these or other warning signs, please give us a call right away so we can keep your home safe!
Lights Burn Out Or Flicker
If you are constantly replacing light bulbs, you might have a bad connection. It is normal for lightbulbs to burn out or flicker ONLY with prolonged usage, which is why we will conduct a thorough inspection to find the issue before it becomes a much bigger or more serious problem.
Like anything in your home, outlets wear out. If you have a dead outlet or light switch, there may be a broken wire that needs to be repaired. It’s common for outlets to spark from time to time, but if it’s happening regularly, it’s best to give us a call before a fire or injury does significant damage.
tripped circuit breakers
Circuit breakers automatically trip when a fault is detected. If it’s happening almost all the time, then there is no question that something is wrong, which requires our immediate attention.
