Owning a home comes with the responsibility to have repairs performed promptly to avoid a dangerous situation. In the case of electrical repair, if you don’t take care of an issue right away, you can get burned - literally.
The National Fire Prevention Association reports that almost half of home fires involve electrical failure or malfunction. Here are some of the signs that you may need to call us out for your home electrical repair.
Do You Need Residential Electrical Repair?
There are several telltale signs that the Doc Watts team should hop on the case to evaluate your electrical system. Keep an eye, ear, and nose out for the following:
Anytime you smell something burning in your home, you should take immediate action. It could be something as simple as the toast staying in the toaster too long, but it could also be a sign of a more dangerous issue.
The first thing you should do if you smell burning is track down where it’s coming from. If it’s coming from a heating vent, especially if you just turned on the heater for the season, it could be dust burning off and it should go away shortly. If the smell is coming from an outlet, you should call an electrician right away and avoid using that outlet.
Appliances in your home can make noise from time to time. Refrigerators and water coolers emit a hum when the motor is running, but if you hear a buzz, pay close attention. There are a couple of reasons you can hear buzzing in your home:
If you hear buzzing (and you’re not a beekeeper), shut off your electricity and call Doc Watts Electric immediately.
Sparks And Shocks
While it’s not uncommon to see a tiny spark occasionally when unplugging something from an outlet, if it’s anything more than a small spark and it happens frequently, you could need home electrical repair. If you are getting shocked when using an outlet, that is a huge red flag signaling that a residential electrical services company should take a look right away.
Sparks can also be a result of a loose power outlet. Your power outlet can become loose if it is connected to an electrical box that sits too far back inside the wall. When this connection is loose, it can cause sparks and fires.
A fuse can trip in severe weather or if it’s overloaded, but if your circuits are tripping frequently, it can be a sign of a more serious issue. A fuse will “blow” (or burn out and die) when too much electricity is being sent through it. When fuses blow out repeatedly, a residential electrical company can replace the fuse and address the overload. You could have too many appliances going to that particular fuse.
Electrical Safety Maintenance
Having your electrical system properly maintained and up to date is the best way to protect your family from an electrical fire. Our professional electricians can check your electrical system for potential fire or electrical shock risks and perform any repairs before they become more dangerous.
