When the lights and appliances in your homework properly, you likely give the electrical system that powers them a second thought. However, developing problems that are ignored can lead to such serious consequences as property damage from fires or even electrical shocks. Residential electrical systems show signs of age and breakdown that should be assessed and repaired as soon as possible. If you need your electrical wiring in Newnan GA checked, Plugged In Electrical Services can recommend necessary repairs.
One of the most common electrical wiring problems you’ll see is a circuit breaker that trips, causing power outages in your home. Circuit breakers trip for several different reasons. The breaker may be overloaded because you’ve plugged in too many appliances or other electrical devices. However, older circuits can trip more frequently, leading to dangerous conditions if you continue using the circuit. If the breaker must be replaced, it’s best to call in a professional electrician to handle the job for you. Working with the breaker itself can cause electrical shock even when you’ve shut off power. Installing the incorrect breaker could lead to a fire.
Sometimes an electrical outlet works intermittently or doesn’t properly hold the plug of the appliance or electrical device. In these cases, loose wiring is frequently the culprit. Particularly in the case of receptacles that don’t tightly hold a plug, electrical shock can be a concern. Loose wiring and defective receptacles should be replaced as soon as possible. A burning odor is also a clear sign that your wiring must be checked immediately. One of the electrical devices you’re using could be the culprit, but it may also be the result of overloaded circuits or bad wiring. Likewise, if you see sparks or hear a popping sound when you plug in a device, it might indicate that the wire is loose. A qualified electrician knows how to locate and repair the loose wire safely and efficiently.
