Signs that You Need Electrcial Repairs?

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Homeowners should always pay attention to potential electrical issues that need professional attention. Sometimes small occurrences can point to larger troubles that can become hazardous if left without proper repairs. In this post we’ll run through a list of some of the major signs that you need to call for electrical services in Everett, WA.

G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. has served the Puget Sound Area since 1977 with electrical repairs. Trust to our experience when you notice any of the following:

  • Continually tripped circuit breakers / blown fuses: An occasional tripped circuit breaker (or blown fuse) is usually not a cause for concern, and you will often know the source of the sudden power overload, such as plugging in a new device. But if circuit breakers are tripping regularly, it means that there is something wrong… likely your electrical system is no longer capable of supporting your power needs. You will either need repairs to your system, or an electrician can create new, separate circuits.
  • Sparking outlets: Outlets can wear down over the years if they experience frequent plugging and unplugging. This will lead to a loose outlet, which can become dangerous if it is left unrepaired. If you notice an outlet that sparks every time you put a plug into it, call an electrician to investigate and fix it. (Don’t try to unscrew the outlet plate and look into it yourself; this can be very dangerous.)
  • Flickering and dimming lights: When you see lights start to dim or flicker for no reason, it probably indicates a poor connection along a circuit that will need attention.
  • Dead outlets and switches: If you find that an outlet isn’t working or a switch isn’t providing power, and the issue isn’t because of a tripped circuit breaker, you may have damaged or loose wiring. As these can turn into fire hazards, don’t ignore the problem: call an electrician.

Don’t try this on your own!

We can’t emphasize this enough: you should never attempt electrical repairs on your own unless you are a professional electrician. The threat of injury from a high-voltage shock is not worth it. Even if you do manage to avoid injuring yourself, failed electrical repairs can cause further damage throughout your electrical system and appliances. Take the safe route: pick up the phone and call an experienced electrician.
