5 Home Electrical Wiring Problems You Should Not Ignore

While the warning signs of home electrical wiring problems can be subtle, but left unchecked they can put your family at risk by increasing the likelihood of electrical shock and fires.

Here are 5 early warning signs of electrical wiring problems you should look out for.

Circuit Breaker That Keeps Tripping

This can means it is either overloaded or there is a problem with the home’s wiring. It could also be caused by a faulty electrical device that is plugged into the circuit.

Dimming Lights

If the lights in the house going dim, it could be an warning sign that the wiring is faulty or that the circuit is overloaded.

Flickering Lights

This can be caused by damaged wiring or a malfunctioning electrical appliance. It can also happen if the electrical system in your house is outdated or overtaxed.

Buzzing Switches or Outlets

If electrical outlets or switches make a slight buzzing noise, it could mean that there is a problem with the appliance it’s controlling or there could be loose wiring in the electrical box.

Hot Electrical Outlet or Switch Plate Covers

It’s normal for some dimmer switches to feel warm to the touch, however if other outlets and switches feel hot to the touch it indicates there is an electrical wiring problem that should be checked by a licensed electrician as soon as possible.

 

If you experience any of these electrical wiring symptoms contact ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electrical for assistance.
