6 Signs You Need to Call A Residential Electrician

As a homeowner, one of the best ways to keep your family and property safe is to become familiar with the early signs of residential lighting and electrical problems. Why? When you know the warning signs, you can take immediate action.

Pro Tip: It’s very important to note that if you don’t feel comfortable troubleshooting a lighting issue at home, it’s ALWAYS time to call in a professional.

Here are 6 signs that you need to call a residential electrician:

  1. Your fuses keep blowing. It’s not unusual for breakers to need a hard reset once in a while, but while resetting things once every few months is normal, having to do it almost every week is a sure fire sign that you have deeper electrical issues.

  2. Your lights keep flickering. While in many cases, a constantly flickering light could be a sign that you need to change or tighten your bulb, occasionally it could be a sign of bad electrical wiring. If you do start to notice excessive flickering, it’s time to call an electrician.

  3. You have an older home. If you have an older home, it could be that you don’t have the most efficient and safe electrical wiring. More importantly, an older system could be overtaxed from powering your modern electrical devices. If you do have an older home, it’s worth having an electrician inspect your home to make it safer and more energy efficient.

  4. You want to renovate your kitchen or bathroom. These are the two rooms in your house that are regularly exposed to water. If you are planning a kitchen or bathroom makeover, it’s best to call in an electrician so they can help you do this in the safest way possible.

  5. You need more power outlets. If you have an older home, you may have fewer outlets than you need. Instead of plugging in a surge protector and adding additional outlets, call in an electrician to do some work. You’ll notice that a lot of issues you had before will be quickly resolved.

  6. Your electricity bill is climbing. Has your electricity bill steadily been increasing? If so, it could be that you have a faulty or inefficient electrical set-up that is causing your home to consume and waste electricity. To help you save money, it’s best to call in an electrician to find and resolve the issue.
