The electrical system of one’s home is critical to its function. While other issues such as sloping floors, water leaks, and structural issue are more visible, electrical issues are far more unnoticed, dangerous and potentially deadly. Faulty wiring causes millions in damage to home owners each year. Damage can be caused by age, pests, or even renovations which leave exposed wire. Periodically, it is a good idea to have an electrician come in and inspect the home for possible issues.
- If multiple light fixtures in your home flicker routinely, you need to get an electrician in as soon as you can.
- If you can feel hot spots coming through switch plates or outlets, this is a sign of a potentially dangerous problem that could cause a fire.
- While an occasional trip of the circuit breakers is nothing to worry about, If it happens a lot it could mean you need electricians to come and upgrade your overloaded wiring.
“After all, while a plumbing problem can inflict water damage and a heating system issue could leave you uncomfortable for a couple of days, electrical wiring problems could cause electrocution and/or house fires.”
