What Are The Signs You Need An Electrical Repair?

January 9, 2020

If you hear a buzzing noise when you turn on a light, it could be a sign that your home’s electrical system needs to be inspected. Let’s take a look at a few other signs your home has an issue that needs to be remedied quickly.

Fuses Blow on a Regular Basis

The fact that a fuse blew or that a circuit breaker was tripped isn’t generally a cause for alarm. However, if this starts to happen on a regular basis, it could indicate that a larger problem exists. A professional from De Soto Electrical Products in De Soto may be able to provide an electrical inspection or complete minor repairs such as replacing a fuse or circuit breaker. We can also rewire your entire home to help it better meet your needs.

Lights Flicker After You Turn Them On

Generally speaking, a flickering light does not mean that there is an issue with a lamp or chandelier. Instead, it means that there are too many other appliances or electrical devices connected to the same circuit. It may be a good idea to provide dedicated circuits for a washing machine, dishwasher, or any other item that may be a power hog.

Outlets Are Hot Even When Nothing Is Plugged In

If you notice that an outlet or switch plate is extremely hot when you touch it, there may be a problem with how your home is wired. Typically, outlet and switch plates will not become warm or hot even when an item is plugged into them. This is generally true even if that item is a toaster, space heater, or other device that warms its immediate surroundings.

We can inspect, repair, or install a new heater or air conditioner in your home in a friendly, affordable and timely manner, and we can help with any electrical issues you may have.
