Electrical repairs can be tricky, and should always be handled by a professional. It can be hard to determine whether or not you’re in need of electrical repair. Here are the top signs you need electrical repair.
- Multiple Blown Fuses – Blowing a fuse here and there isn’t uncommon, and likely isn’t a sign of concern. However, if multiple blown fuses are occurring, there may be an underlying issue and you may need to contact a professional for electrical repair.
- Burning Smell – If you notice a burning smell coming from your outlets, contact a professional right away. Burning smell indicates that your outlet cover is getting overheated and burning. This could be a result of excess heat being produced to an outlet, which can put your home at risk of fire.
- Lighting Issues – Are you experiencing lighting issues, such as your light dimming or flickering frequently? This issue can be caused by poor installation or there is a power overload on your circuit.
- Sparks – Seeing sparks coming from your outlet, whether it’s randomly or when you plug something into an outlet, can be a big indicator that you need an electrical repair. This is an issue that should be addressed immediately. Sparks are typically caused by excess heat to your outlet due to exposed wires.
