The electrical system in your home is its most vital component, more so than its gas and plumbing. Without electricity, most basic tasks during the day are impossible—and they become worse than impossible at night. If you have an electrical system that is suffering from repair needs, you can’t wait for a full power loss before calling for repairs. Watch for the warning indicators listed below that will tell you to contact a licensed and experienced electrician immediately.
Since 1977, G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. has come to homeowners’ aid when they needed electrical system repairs in Mill Creek, WA. We have the qualifications and skills to keep your home powered up and safe.
3 Signs You Should Call For Electrical System Repairs
- Constantly tripped circuit breakers: One of the major warning indicators that you have an electrical system that needs repairs or upgrades is if you must constantly go to the circuit panel and reset tripped breakers. An occasional tripped breaker isn’t cause for alarm (although it may show where you need appliance repair), but if it happens regularly, you should call for an electrician. In some cases, the best route is to replace the older circuit breaker panel.
- Dead outlets and switches: An outlet or switch that goes out because of a tripped circuit breaker is a simple problem to trace. But when outlets and switches stop working for no reason that you can tell, you probably have poor connections somewhere in the electrical system. Repair technicians will look to see if there are broken wires causing it and replace them.
- Regular power surges: Power surges are usually connected to catastrophic events such as downed power lines, storms, and lightning strikes. Although all of these can trigger surges that will cause severe damage to your electrical system, smaller surges are much more common and will warn that you need repairs. Small surges occur when an appliance makes too large a demand on the electrical system, and the imbalance causes a surge that will inflict damage to other appliances (you may notice lights flickering). Have an electrician check out your home’s wiring to see if there are problems with circuits that are causing this to happen, or if you need to have a whole-house surge protector installed. (The small power strips are insufficient as protection from regular power surges.)
Our team of electricians at G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. can handle numerous jobs to keep your home’s electrical system running at its best. Along with repairs, we also upgrade fuse boxes and install whole-house surge protectors and generators.
