You’d like to believe that your house is safe, but there are plenty of potential electrical problems that could cause your home to burst into flames–all without you ever being aware that there’s an issue. Electrical fires can quickly cause a serious amount of damage to your home, leaving you scrambling to repair.
If it’s been too long since the last time your electrical system was evaluated by an electrician, it’s time to call Jeremy Services. If you have any of these four key electrical symptoms, today is the best day for you to schedule an evaluation:
1. You’ve never had your home evaluated
Unless you’ve just moved into a home that was only recently constructed, an electrical evaluation is a must. You want to make sure that nothing was missed during the home inspection or has gone wrong since then that might lead to a fire.
2. You’re used to having electrical problems
Appliances don’t seem to be running at full power, light bulbs, whether bulbs throughout the house or bulbs in specific fixtures–burn out faster than the norm–and you catch your breaker tripping or blowing fuses on a regular basis. If this is the case, it’s past time you had your wiring and fuse box evaluated by a qualified electrician.
3. Your electrical panel makes noise
While you might hear power lines crackling as you walk beneath them, that’s not a noise you should hear in your own home! If you hear noise near your electrical panel, make sure you have it evaluated as soon as possible.
4. Your home is showing symptoms of faulty wiring
Flickering lamps or other power issues that suggest that the power is going in and out aren’t something you should deal with on your own, especially if you have no electrical experience. Instead, hire a qualified electrician to deal with your problems for you.
