Many homeowners worry if they hear buzzing sound coming from their home electrical systems. While most electrical appliances make some noise, it’s typically inaudible. Most of the time, these electrical noises are not a huge cause for concern. However, if the buzzing noise is louder than normal, it may be an issue. Some causes of these noises can be damaged wires in the walls or faulty appliances. If the noise becomes too loud, it’s always best to call an electrician to investigate the issue.
