Understanding the electrical problems you have at home
Home electrical issues can often be identified through noticeable signs. Being aware of these warning signs allows you to take quick action to prevent more serious issues from developing. Here are some common indications of electrical problems:
- Burning Smell
If you notice a burning odor coming from outlets, switches, or electrical components, this likely means wires have become overloaded or damaged in some way. Overloaded wires that cannot safely handle the electricity running through them will overheat, potentially melting insulation and creating a burning smell. Damaged or deteriorated wiring can also cause overheating. This is a serious fire hazard requiring immediate attention.
- Constantly Tripping Breakers
Circuit breakers are designed to trip and shut off power to a circuit when electricity flow exceeds safe levels. If you find certain breakers are frequently tripping in your home, it could mean the breaker is faulty and overly sensitive. However, it more commonly indicates excessive energy demands on the circuit. Too many devices, lights, or appliances on a single circuit can cause tripping when in use. Upgrading wiring may be needed to support your electrical needs.
- Burn Marks at Outlets
Dark burn marks or scorching around electrical outlets or switches should not be ignored. This often results from loose plug connections that spark due to gaps in contact. It can also stem from faulty wiring issues within the walls that overheat. Burn marks put you at risk of electrical fires and shock. Have an electrician inspect and identify the underlying cause right away.
- Flickering Lights
Lights that flicker or dim periodically can have many causes, like a faulty bulb or lamp. However, flickering paired with other electrical issues may point to wiring problems like ground faults or loose connections. Faulty or damaged wiring unable to deliver steady electrical current will make lights flicker.
