Electrical issues commonly make themselves noted, but that doesn’t mean it’s not difficult to find out what the cause of the problem is.
If you’re uncertain of what’s occurring, don’t go checking into it yourself. Electrical systems are complicated and can cause significant harm if you are inexperienced.
Here are some signals you should hand the problem off to the electrical team at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC.
In general, electricity moves evenly through your house. That means your lights and other electric appliances should function steadily, with no apparent change. Flickering lights—either when a powerful appliance switches on or on a ordinary basis—could indicate something is off with your wiring or power supply.
Periodically Tripping Breakers
We’ve all unwittingly operated one too many appliances on one breaker or fuse. You’ll figure out you’ve arrived at capacity when the power shuts down around you in just one zone of your space. But if you’ve reset the breaker and it quickly trips again, it’s time to call a professional.
Issues with Your Outlets
Any time you’re feeling unsatisfied with your outlets, an electrician can step in. Whether your outlets aren’t transferring power to your appliances or you’re in need of more outlets, it’s time to schedule an appointment. And if your outlets seem to be warm to the touch, be sure you do it as soon as you can. It could hint at a significant problem.
