Maintaining and keeping your home’s electrical systems up-to-date is crucial for the safety of your family. Faulty electrical systems can cause power surges and fires, putting everyone in great danger.
By investing in regular maintenance, you can have peace of mind knowing that your electrical system is functioning properly, your bills aren’t unnecessarily high and that your family is safe.
Certain signs indicate that your electrical system isn’t working properly.
If you notice any of the following, call professional electrical technicians to check out your electrical system:
1. Damaged Wires
Everyday use can cause wires to become frayed and damaged. The sheathing on wires can get worn out with consistent use. Damaged wires can lead to incorrect electrical flow and cause heat damage to internal components of certain appliances like laptops.
Have damaged wires around the house? Get them checked out by professionals.
2. Faulty Electrical Outlets
You’re constantly plugging things in and out of electrical outlets. Plugging an electronic device or an appliance into a malfunctioning outlet can be hazardous.
Electrical outlets that have scorch marks, are warm to touch and spark when you plug things in, need to be checked out by professionals to prevent the chance of fires.
3. Tripping Circuit Breaker
When your circuit breaker notices a surge of electricity in certain parts of your home, it will cut off power to that area to keep you safe. Circuit breakers work similarly to a safety switch, they are designed to protect you from potential electrical fires.
If your circuit breaker is constantly “tripping” then there must be something wrong with your electrical system.
4. Burning Smell
Do you smell a strange burning smell in certain rooms? You could have a burning wire. Any sort of burning smell alongside buzzing and cracking sounds coming from your electrical outlets are a cause of concern. You’ll need to turn off the electricity in that specific area and have it checked out by professionals right away.
5. Dimming Lights
Notice your lights dim when you switch on certain appliances like the dryer or the vacuum cleaner? That’s your circuit breaker about to trip. You’ll need to have it checked out to find out why the circuit breaker gets close to tripping whenever you plug in appliances.
