Burning Out Bulbs
Light bulbs are not going to last forever, though some will certainly last much longer than others—as a side note, consider LED lighting for outstanding bulb lifespan. However, if you seem to be going through light bulbs at a very rapid rate, it could be a sign of an electrical problem in your home. Degenerative issues over time could leave certain fixtures burning bulbs more brightly than others, and burning through them at an increased rate. Whatever the issue may be, you need to have it resolved before it poses a safety risk.
Tripped Circuit Breakers
The point of a circuit breaker is to interrupt the flow of electricity on a circuit when it threatens to overload that circuit. They are reset with a simple flip of a switch, rather than requiring that a fuse be replaced. However, if you are flipping those switches with any regularity, you probably have an issue with your wiring, or perhaps with your breakers themselves, which requires repairs. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you think that your circuit breakers are tripping too frequently.
Dead Outlets or Switches
Outlets and switches are not installed in homes in order to add character. Each and every outlet and switch in your home should be operational. If you have outlets or switches that seem to serve no purpose, or if one day you just discover that an outlet has stopped putting out power, you need electrical repairs.
