Your electrical system supplies electricity to everything in your home. The various components need to be working together to ensure a safe and reliable supply of electricity.
When something goes wrong in one part of the system, it can cause big problems, including serious injury and property damage.
Electrical problems can range from a problem with a single outlet to larger and more difficult to solve issues.
If you lose power, there could be several causes, such as age, a short, voltage issue, or damage caused by animals or pests.
When you are the only house on the block without power or you have power in part of the house, don’t hesitate to call for electrical repair.
Call a professional for electrical repair when:
- Constantly tripping circuits – Circuit breakers trip occasionally, which is usually not a problem. You just reset the breaker and move on with your day. However, if a breaker is frequently tripping, it may need to be replaced.
- Buzzing noises – Electricity isn’t supposed to be noisy. If you hear buzzing sounds or any unusual noises coming from a light, outlet, or electrical panel, call a professional electrician.
- Sparks – If you see sparks coming from an outlet when you plug something in or the main electrical panel, call for repair.
- Flickering lights – A light that keeps flickering may be a problem with the fixture, switch, or wiring.
Any malfunction in an electrical system can be potentially serious. A small problem can quickly grow into a much bigger problem.
For this reason, you should not wait to call a professional electrician when you notice any of the signs of an electrical problem.
Some common electrical repairs include:
- Outlets and switches
- Circuit breakers
- Electrical panels
- Home wiring
- Lighting and ceiling fans
Electrical problems can be tricky to diagnose and a mistake during a repair can lead to electrical shocks, fires, and serious injury or property damage. It is not advised to attempt to perform your own electrical repairs.
How Do You Find Out If Your Home's Wiring Is Outdated?
Determining whether your home's wiring is outdated involves a combination of visual inspection, historical knowledge about your home's construction, and understanding the types of wiring used during different time periods.
Here's how you can go about it:
- Visual Inspection: Check for wear, degradation, exposed wires, and frayed insulation in outlets, switches, and the electrical panel.
- Check the Electrical Panel: Examine the type of wiring and the condition of breakers or fuses. Outdated fuse boxes or overcrowded panels may indicate outdated wiring.
- Historical Research: Research the typical wiring methods used during the era your home was built. Different decades had different prevalent wiring types.
- Consult an Electrician: If unsure, hire a licensed electrician for a thorough inspection and expert advice on your wiring's condition. They may recommend upgrades or replacements.
- Look for Upgrades: If your home has been renovated, wiring might have been upgraded. Check for records of past electrical work.
- Safety Concerns: Address frequent electrical issues promptly, regardless of wiring age, as they might signal problems.
- Age of Your Home: Older homes without significant electrical updates are more likely to have outdated wiring.
Remember, safety is paramount; consult a professional electrician if you have any concerns about your home's wiring.
