When you hear buzzing in a wall, it is most likely from an electrical problem. There can be other things, like a ceiling fan, or an issue with the HVAC system, but it is usually electrical. When it is electrical, it can be coming from an outlet or a light switch. This could be from a loose connection. The issue can also originate from an electrical panel, if there are wiring connection issues with the circuit breakers.
- Even though it’s always possible that there’s something supernatural, when there’s buzzing in a wall, it’s most likely electrical.
- If there are loose wires, this is a fire hazard, so it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
- Sometimes buzzing in the wall is actually coming from something that isn’t electrical, like a ceiling fan.
“Try to pinpoint where in the wall you’re hearing the buzzing noise. If it seems to be coming from either an outlet or a light switch, then there are probably loose connections in them.”
