Electrical problems can be extremely inconvenient and, in some cases, dangerous for you and your family. As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to address electrical repairs and maintenance as quickly as possible. The longer you wait the more difficult and expensive the repairs may be. If you’re unsure about when to call an electrician, here are several signs that may help.
Outlets Aren’t Working Properly
One of the clearest signs there’s a problem with your home’s electrical system is outlets that aren’t working properly. While it’s easy enough to use a different outlet, the inconvenience of moving belongings around can be a pain. Don’t settle for outlets that aren’t functioning; call an electrician for help.
Faulty Light Switches
Similarly, faulty light switches indicate a problem with the electricity in your home as well. Beyond being annoying, however, broken light switches can also be dangerous. The inability to turn on the lights in your home put you and your family at unnecessary risk after dark.
Flickering lights may be an easy fix. Sometimes all it takes is tightening a light bulb. First check to make sure the bulb is screwed in tightly. If that doesn’t work, you may try replacing the bulb.If this doesn’t resolve the problem, though, you’ll need a professional to examine the electrical wiring.
