There are many signs that we can look for if we suspect we have an electrical problem. First, if you plug a wire into an outlet and it sparks or shocks you, there is probably cause for concern and you should contact a professional. Loose outlets hanging off a wall can also cause faulty wiring and fires. Lights flickering can also alert us to a possible issue with regards to electrical wiring. Finally, if you smell something burning in your home and can’t find the cause, it could be your electrical system. Call a professional for peace of mind.
- If your lights are flickering on and off, you may have an issue within your electrical system such as a light fixture problem or wiring.
- If you smell something burning in your house and can’t find the object, it’s very possible your homes electrical system is malfunctioning.
