How to Know You Need an Electrical Repair

Some electrical repair jobs are easy to notice, such as a failed outlet. But others are less easy to immediately spot. There are several warning signs to look out for that will tell you it’s time to call for a licensed professional electrician.

  • Repeatedly tripped circuit breakers: An occasional tripped circuit breaker can indicate an appliance putting too much demand on the electrical system. But when circuits are tripping on a regular basis, you may need electrical repairs (possibly extensive rewiring) or repairs made to the electrical panel itself.
  • Dimming lights: If you notice lights around the house occasionally dim when other appliances come on, there may be wiring repair needs.
  • Warm outlets or light switches: When you notice that either outlets or switches are hot to the touch, call for an electrician immediately to prevent the danger of an electrical fire.
  • An acrid burning smell: A burning odor coming from outlets and switches is a reason to call for electric repairs ASAP.
  • Too many dead lightbulbs: Replacing lightbulbs at a furious rate? That shouldn’t be happening—something may be wrong with the electrical system.

You Must Call a Licensed Electrician for Any Electrical Repairs

Please never attempt to tinker with outlets, switches, electrical fixtures, the electrical panel, or any of your home’s writing on your own. Don’t entrust repairs to a "handyman" without an electrical license either! Any electrical repair, from a small fix to an outlet to extensive rewiring must be left to a fully licensed and insured professional electrician. A licensed electrician understands the local electrical codes so they can keep your home safe with precise and correct repairs. They will ensure the job is done right and there are no dangers of electrical fires. The insurance will protect you from liability in case of damage to your home or injury to the electricians during the work. Don’t take chances on this important job.
