Our electrical systems play a major role in our day to day lives. From hot water delivered by electric water heaters to our air conditioning systems which cool our homes, to simply illuminating our living spaces so that we can navigate them safely and conveniently, it is impossible to overstate just how vital reliable electricity is. Of course, there are a number of problems which may arise and cause trouble with your electrical system. Here are a few examples of some common signs that it is time for electrical repair services in North Seattle. If you have any further questions, just give us a call. G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. is here to help you get the most from your electrical system.
- Flickering Lights: If you have a cheap old tree lamp in a corner of your home that flickers, then it is very possible that the problem in that scenario is with the quality of the lamp itself. If you have flickering lights throughout your home, though, the problem may be much more pervasive, and potentially much more dangerous. If your lighting system is flickering in areas, or if you find that you are burning bulbs out far too quickly, contact us to schedule electrical repairs immediately.
- Hot Wiring/Outlets: Should you notice that any electrical wiring in your home is hot to the touch, you must dial our number right away. You could have a serious fire hazard on your hands. If patches of your walls with electrical wiring behind them are warm, or if the face plates of your outlets feel hot, electrical repairs are very likely necessary. Don’t wait to smell something burning or to see smoke. The sooner the problem is resolved, the better.
- Frequent Tripped Breakers: Flipping a switch in the breaker box is a much more convenient way to get electricity flowing once more than replacing fuses is. However, remember that you should not be making trips to the breaker box too frequently. If you are, contact our team so that one of our electricians can investigate matters and complete any repairs needed.
