Electrical Service Calls
Electrician house calls are often necessary when experiencing a problem within your electrical system. If you find yourself experiencing electrical issues in your office or home, it is a wise decision to have one of our professional electricians come out on an electrical service call. If you overlook issues, or if problems go without being checked out, you are setting yourself up for serious consequences. The issue has the potential to grow larger, turning into a larger problem that could be possibly harmful to your family, employees, or home.
signs when to call an electrician
It is important to know when or why you should contact one of our professional electricians to come service your home or office. It is dangerous to try and fix these issues yourself, and without experience and training, you could make the problem worse. You may also be putting yourself, your family, and your employees at risk.
blown fuses/tripped breakers
If you find that your fuses blow regularly, or if your circuit breakers are being tripped often, you make consider calling an electrician. This is a sign that your circuits are taking more power than they can safely distribute. This could also be a warning that there are one or more circuits with dangerous faults.
flickering or waning
Have you ever had a moment when you turned on the microwave, and the lights begin to wane or flicker? This is a common issue when your motor-driven appliances draw a great amount of current. They need to be wired on a circuit that is dedicated to them. However, if you are having issues with smaller appliances, you may need to think about servicing them with the addition of a 20 amp line.
warmth and shock
If your electrical system surfaces are warm to the touch, it could be a sign of a very dangerous issue. If could be as simple as too great of a demand on the circuit, or could even be a sign of aluminum wiring. Other signs of being aware of are mild shocks when touching or using a switch or outlet, blackening around switchplates, terminals for switches, or the ends of wires.
