6 MOST COMMON ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS IN HOMES

Electricity is the backbone of a home with many

electrical systems, lighting, and appliances connected

to it. From grounding spices in the kitchen, washing

clothes, Lighting rooms, to charging devices and

smartphone, electricity is needed everywhere. It will be

right to say that homes are a big, giant box of electrical

wires.

With this extent of use of electricity, several electrical

problems arise around the home. Sometimes, it is a

broken switch while other time, it is a fused bulb.

Homeowners choose to fix many of the issues on their

own and do not seek the assistance of

Electricians in San Francisco.

While some of these electrical problems can be fixed,

you must hire an experienced and qualified electrician

to take care of common problems.

The following are the top four common electrical

problems in the home.


PROBLEM #1: OVERLOADING OF ELECTRICAL BOARD

Did you plug in your hair dryers in the socket

were four other devices were already

connected You may feel a burning smell soon.

When a socket is overloaded, the wires’

electromagnetic field changes resulting in

short circuit.

The wires will draw heavy current causing the

burning smell. It can even cause a strong

electrical fire. So, if you suspect an overloaded

circuit, you should get a new and appropriate

one installed. If you want to replace a burntout

circuit, even then, you should avoid doing

it on your own.


PROBLEM #2: FLICKERING LIGHTS

Do your lights flicker as soon as you plug in a

heavy device or appliance? For example. When

you plug in iron in the socket, the lights in the

room begin to flicker. It is a common problem in

old homes that have been built for more than

30 years ago.

With the passage of time, the wiring becomes

frayed, or the circuit becomes overloaded. The

Electricians in San Francisco can help you in

repairing or replacing the circuit according to

the guidelines set in California, and there will

be no flickering lights anymore.


ENSURE CERTIFICATION OF WORKERS

What happens if the contractor is certified and

the company is registered, but the employees

working on your premises are not certified?

You are exposing yourself to many potentially

dangerous situations.

When workers are not certified, they do not

have insurance neither proper work

experience. They may also not have protective

gear or equipment. As a result, it can damage

your property. So, you must make sure that

employees on your premises are certified.


PROBLEM #3: DEAD OUTLETS

Roam around your home and check the connectivity of

all power outlets. Let’s say you have ten power outlets

in your home, at least three or four would be out of

service or death. It means that when you connect a

device to these outlets, they do not supply current.

Dead outlets are not only ineffective and wastage of

electrical point, but they can also cause overloading as

homeowners plug in everything in the nearest working

outlet. Dead outlets can also be fixed by electricians by

finding the fault in the circuit.

Tripping of Circuit Breaker

Do you have a circuit breaker installed in your home?

Tripping of the circuit breaker is a common problem. In

case large current passes from the circuit, the circuit

breaker automatically shuts down the whole circuit.

However, you can fix this problem yourself by switching

it back on. Be careful when you are switching it on and

take precautions such as wearing rubber shoes,

wearing gloves and not touching with wet hands.


If you have felt the electric shock from a circuit or

outlet, you must take it seriously. Contact professional

Electricians in San Francisco to visit and examine the

circuit.

The electrician will identify the problem and then fix it

accordingly. You must also make sure that all of the

circuits are GFCI installed.
