Household Electrical Problems That Require An Electrical Contractor
Your home’s electrical system is complex and is used constantly 25/7/365 to keep up with all of your gadget-charging, appliance-running, and entertainment-providing needs. Because of the heavy usage, it’s usually just a matter of time before you run into an electrical issue that needs repairs.
Here are the most common electrical problems that crop up that warrant calling an electrical contractor immediately.
If your lights constantly flicker, it could be a problem with the electrical grid, which is out of your control. However, if you’ve checked the bulbs and the electric company isn’t reporting issues on their end, look to your wiring or electrical panel as the culprit.
Frequent Breaker Trips
Does the breaker trip every time you use the microwave or hairdryer? If so, it’s probably because your wattage load is exceeding what your electrical system can provide. Depending on your current system setup, an electrical contractor can add a subpanel relatively inexpensively. However, if you live in an older home with a fusebox or outdated panel, an electrical panel upgrade is the only way to solve the problem.
Warm or Hot Outlet Plates
If the outlet covers or switch plates are warm or hot to the touch, it’s a serious situation that could lead to an electrical fire or electric shock. Call a residential electrician as soon as possible.
Buzzing Electrical Panel
Buzzing or humming sounds coming from your electrical panel usually means one of the circuit breakers is overloaded, which is a dangerous situation that you must fix quickly.
Bulbs Constantly Burn Out
If it feels like you’re going through light bulbs more quickly than you should, it could be a voltage problem that’s causing them to burn out faster than what they’re rated for. Call one of our experienced technicians for expert electrical troubleshooting to determine the problem.
Our Electrical Outlet Repair Services
You probably don’t think much about your home’s electrical outlets, even though you rely on them every day. If your home is over 50 years old and still has the original outlets, here are several advantages to calling an electrical contractor for an upgrade.
You Get The Benefits of Modern Outlet Technology
Today’s electrical outlets offer more features and functionality than the outlets of 50 years ago, and here are just a few.
USB Wall Outlets
We can all identify with the hassle of having enough USB ports in the house to charge our phones, laptops, and other electronic gadgets. Upgrading to USB outlets gives you plenty of charging spaces throughout the house while mitigating the spider web of cords and charging bricks using up space, making it easy to trip over.
If you have limited space in your home or apartment, recessed outlets prevent plugs from protruding too far, which can cause wires to crimp and bend.
GFCI Receptacle Outlets
Upgrading to GFCI outlets can save your life and are required by most building codes, especially when using electric appliances near water, such as in the bathroom, the garage, or outdoors. These outlets reduce the risk of shock and electrocution by cutting off power when they sense an electrical imbalance.
Adding WiFi outlets to your home allows you to monitor the appliances plugged into them easily. For example, if you can’t remember if you left the coffee maker on, you can check the status on your smartphone and turn it off if needed. WiFi outlets also integrate with many smart home services like Apple HomeKit, Alexa, and Google Home to give you greater control.
Upgrading your outlets not only gives you peace of mind, greater control over your electronics, but it adds value to your home. Contact us today for more information.
