Signs You Might Need Electrical Repairs

Understanding the symptoms of electrical problems before they escalate can help prevent further maintenance costs down the road. If you are experiencing any of the following issues, it may be time to contact an experienced Atlanta electrician.

  • Electrical Shocks: If you begin to notice electrical shocks or a tingling sensation when touching an appliance or power cord, this could be a sign of improper electrical wiring.
  • Circuit Breaker Issues: Circuit breakers are designed to shut off if they become overloaded. This is a safety feature to prevent overheating and fires. If you notice your circuit breakers shutting off, this could be a sign of wear and tear due to age or that something is wrong.
  • Flickering Lights: If your lights flicker every now and then, it may be due to fluctuations in the power grid. However, if your lights are constantly flickering and replacing the bulbs does not fix the problem, this could be assign of loose wiring.
  • Light Switch & Electrical Outlet Failure: If your light switch has stopped working or if the outlet is no longer providing power, it could be a sign wiring has come loose or the switch plate could be cracked.

What are the Most Common Causes of Electrical Problems in a Home?

Electrical problems in homes often stem from various issues, ranging from outdated wiring to overloaded circuits. 

Here are some common causes to be aware of:

  • Overloaded circuits: Plugging in too many devices or appliances to a single circuit can lead to overheating and electrical failures.
  • Faulty wiring: Old or improperly installed wiring can degrade over time, causing shorts, sparks, or even fires.
  • Tripped circuit breakers: Circuit breakers trip when there's an overload or short circuit, indicating potential issues with the electrical system.
  • Electrical surges: Surges from lightning strikes, utility grid fluctuations, or faulty appliances can damage sensitive electronics.
  • Loose connections: Loose wires or connections increase resistance, leading to heat buildup and potential hazards.

Regular maintenance and inspections by a qualified electrician can help prevent these common problems and ensure the safety and reliability of your electrical system.
