Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Can I DIY My Home’s or Business’s Electrical Repairs?
It’s not uncommon for homeowners to immediately spot an electrical issue since electricity is something used dozens of times per day. Any good “handyman” or “handywoman” may tell you that they should be able to fix it themselves without a problem. However, handymen are generally not qualified to handle electrical work. Licensed Electricians have to undergo years of extensive training and certification processes to obtain his or her license. Sure, a license may seem just like a piece of paper, but that paper is something that can save your life, so use a licensed electrical contractor.
Is My Home’s Wiring Up-To-Date?
The majority of homeowners and home inspectors cannot always easily identify the age of wiring. It often takes a trained and licensed electrician to properly do this. In general, if your home was built between 1920 and 1960, the wiring that was used can have a tendency to dry rot and cause problems. If your home falls in the age range, and you have not had an inspection in the last few years, we recommend you schedule an inspection to determine if your home’s wiring is up-to-date and in good shape.
Am I Responsible For My Home’s Service Cable and Meter Box Outside?
Yes, you are definitely responsible for the meter box and the connection to your property from the electric company’s equipment. If you suspect that either might be damaged, we recommend contacting a licensed electrical contractor to perform an inspection.
Why Do My Electrical Fuses Blow or My Home’s Breakers Trip?
Usually, this is because you have overloaded the circuit with things like; air conditioners, TVs, microwaves, fans, toasters, heaters, etc. It does not always matter how big your service is, these issues usually have to do with a branch circuit, which is from the breaker box to the problem device.
Why Do My Lamps Burn Out Early?
There are often several possible reasons, it could be the quality of the lamps you are using or the house could be at the high-end voltage of the electric service on your street. Also, make sure you are using the correct light bulbs recommended for your lamp type.
Why Does My House Have Blinking Lights Sometimes?
You may need more branch circuits throughout the house, or you may have loose connections in the breaker box, meter box or throughout the house. This could cause a potential fire and is definitely worthy of calling a licensed electrician to schedule an inspection.
Why Is My Light Switch Hot or Very Warm To Touch?
If you reach for your light switch to turn it off, only to find that it is hot to the touch, you definitely have a problem. This is not normal, and it often indicates that there are serious issues hiding in the electrical wiring or electrical setup behind your walls. Call an electrician to inspect this thoroughly or you could end up facing a home electrical fire in the future.
What Are GFCI devices?
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) devices are required in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, garages, and outside. These are life-saving devices against electrical shock. GFCIs are residual-current devices, or residual-current circuit breakers, that quickly break an electrical circuit to prevent serious harm from an ongoing electric shock.
What Are Arc Fault Breakers And Why Do I Need Them?
Arc fault breakers monitor the current and discriminate between normal and unwanted arcing conditions. Arc fault breakers are primarily designed to protect against electrical fires caused by arcing. Several years ago, the electrical code was updated and requires us to install arc fault breakers in the house wherever there are new lines being installed, except for where GFCI devices are required (kitchens and bathrooms). Arc fault breakers are generally regarding as a beneficial technology and help the electrical safety of your home or business.
