One of the common electrical problems that homeowners in San Diego encounter are flickering lights and outlets that don't hold plugs tightly or don't work at all. One reason this happens is because electrical panels and circuit breakers are old and may have a bad or burnt connection point. Many older homes use a type of electrical receptacle that can become dangerous over time due to loose internal connections. This is also a common cause of partial power outages. Poor connections, no matter what the reason, can lead to power outages, electrical damages and can even cause a fire.
Tightening or replacing your circuit breakers can prevent unnecessary electrical downtime and, in many cases, is more economical than paying for electrical installation down the road.
