4 Common Residential Electrical Problems
- Sags and Dips
Sags and dips in power levels are closely related to power surges. Small appliances are usually the culprit behind these issues. It’s essentially an intermittent drop in electrical voltage. They usually only last a second. They are also known as “brown-outs.” It happens when your lights get dim and then get bright again, without going off all the way.
- Not Enough Outlets
Many people don’t think about it, but not having a sufficient number of electrical outlets is a problem. This is an electrical problem, whether you realize it or not. Although extension cords and power strips often work for temporary repairs, they aren’t meant to be the only option. If using an extension cord is your permanent solution to a lack of outlets, you have to make sure you’re using the 14-gauge heavy-load cords (at least) or a UL-listed surge protector.
- Uncovered Junction Boxes
Uncovered junction boxes are one of those hidden problems lurking in walls that you don’t think about. Junction boxes are the professional casing used for various electrical wires. They are installed during the initial construction. They are also replaced frequently with an electrical upgrade. If you take out a section of your wall for a remodeling project, these boxes are small plastic or metal boxes that are roughly 2 feet by 3 feet. This is your junction box, where a wire runs from the main panel and connects to other wires that run out to your electrical fixtures. Junction boxes should always have a proper cover. If they don’t, you’re dealing with a safety issue. The purpose for having an enclosed box is to protect you and your home from electrical shocks. They also prevent fires from spreading that start because of damaged wires.
- Flickering Lights
Flickering lights could be caused by a loose bulb in the socket. However, if continues to happen even after changing the bulb, it might be because there’s a poor wiring connection or faulty fixture. In any case, these sorts of issues require the immediate care of a handyman. You need an expert not only to diagnose the problem but also to handle the repairs safely and affordably. To determine whether it’s a more serious issue, watch out for: Bulbs that burn out too fast, Light bulbs that appear too bright or those that aren’t bright enough, and problems with your refrigerator or freezer, which could indicate voltage problems.
