4 Signs of an Electrical Wiring Problem
- Using Too Many Extension Cords
There’s a reason electrical wires are inside of walls. Extension cords create additional points where cords can get kinked or get pinched, which can trip breakers, damage outlets and even cause a fire. Extension cords should be used sparingly and for short periods of time — during the holidays, for example. If you feel like you need more outlets, our electricians can install them.
- Dimming or flickering lights
Light fixtures only draw a small amount of power. If you have dimming or flickering lights, it is rarely caused by a problem with the light fixture itself. This type of issue is usually related to major appliances or space heaters hogging energy from the circuit. Lights dimming could be caused by a washing machine or water heater drawing power to heat water. Our electricians can help you move lights to different circuits or install dedicated lines for major appliances.
If your breaker panel, fuse box or electrical outlet is sparking, you need to call our local electricians immediately. Don’t delay having an expert check any sort of sparking from wiring or electrical equipment. Sparking appliances can indicate the fixture itself is damaged, in which case you will need to call an appliance repair expert.
- Hot outlets or switch plates
Even when appliances are meant to generate heat (like toasters and space heaters), the outlets that power them should never become hot. Electricity can make a switch plate warm to the touch. However, if the outlet is uncomfortably hot, it needs to be turned off. Take out whatever is plugged into it and try using a different outlet. If the outlet gets hot without anything being plugged into it, it might be wired incorrectly. Call our electricians. We might have you flip the breaker or remove the fuse for that outlet until your system can be serviced.
Upgrading your electrical panel could save money and make you safer.
Your electric service panel is the central connection and point of distribution for all the electricity that comes into your home from the outside to all your switches, outlets, lights, and appliances. A defective electrical panel won’t just damage electrical devices that are connected to it. If there’s a power surge of any kind or any issues with shoddy electrical work performed in the past, it can also pose a severe safety hazard.
Do you feel like the electric service panel in your home is up for the job? Many older homes have outdated service panels that need an upgrade to prevent the overloading of their electrical equipment. Because there are many different types and styles of electrical panels, which vary in amperage levels, our licensed electricians at MK Electric can review each option with you. Our electricians will also recommend which electrical panel upgrade service best suits your electrical needs. We carry equipment from trusted industry names, and we service all brands.
Columbus, OH Outlet & Light Switch Experts
Having outdated electrical outlets can become a fire hazard and an electrical shock hazard. If you’re finding your electrical outlets spark after you plug in or unplug an appliance or after a large appliance turns on, it’s probably a sign you need to talk to an electrician about installing a new electrical outlet. You should never attempt to DIY electrical work, or risk repairing or replacing your electrical outlets without the assistance of a professional electrician that’s state-licensed and fully insured.
The standard household electrical outlet should have two of the 3-pronged plug-ins, which are polarized receptacles. Each of these receptacle have a 120-volt ‘hot’ wire in addition to a neutral wire and another wire for grounding. Because NEC code requires a ground wire or a bound wire, they guarantee both the safe and functional delivery of power to your home.
