Signs Your Home May Need Wiring Repairs

img_0032It’s easy to take the wiring that serves your home’s electrical system for granted since you can’t see most of it. (This also applies to the ventilation system.) Unfortunately, this often makes it easy to ignore trouble with the wiring for far too long. Below are some common indications that your household wiring needs repair work. When you notice these, call our electricians right away!

Here Are Warning Signs of Wiring Trouble

  • Flickering lights: It’s October, and perhaps the idea of flickering lights provides a nice “haunted house atmosphere.” But this is still a sign that something may be wrong with the electrical system. A single flickering light is likely trouble with the bulb. But when it’s happening all over your house, there may be a deeper problem.
  • Sparking: You never want to see sparking coming from fixtures, outlets, or switches. The moment this happens, call an electrician to see what’s wrong and what to fix.
  • Frequently tripped breakers: How often do you find yourself going to the circuit breaker panel to reset tripped breakers? Hopefully no more than once or twice a year. If this is a common issue, the wiring may be overloaded (or the panel in need of replacement).
  • Burning smells: If you notice a burning smell in your home when there is no obvious source for it (like something in the oven), the source may be burning wires. Call an electrician ASAP, and take precautions, such as keeping a fire extinguisher handy, until the problem is fixed.

Reminder: Always Call Licensed Electricians

This is critical! Attempting to tackle a repair to your home’s wiring is potentially dangerous, both to you and to the house. To stay safe—as well as to ensure that the job is done correctly—only call on experienced, licensed electricians for wiring repair. Our team is always ready to assist you, any time of the day or night, so don’t hesitate to call!
