Small Electrical Repairs You May Need Around the House

Small Electrical Repairs You May Need Around the House

If electrical issues are permanent fixtures of your “honey-do” list, contact the experts at Professional Electric for small electrical repairs.

Homeownership is something that many people aspire to, work hard for, and enjoy. Keeping your home well-maintained is a labor of love, but some maintenance concerns seem so small that they are pushed aside, often accumulating over time. Small electrical repairs are typically minor enough that homeowners put them off, but they’re significant enough to require a professional’s expertise. If electrical issues are permanent fixtures of your “honey-do” list, contact the experts at Professional Electric for small electrical repairs.

Small Electrical Repairs for Outlets 

Your home’s power outlets allow you to tap into the electrical system, powering devices large and small. Because they’re often plentiful around the house, a broken outlet here and there may not cause alarm or inconvenience. Loose outlets are a common issue in some homes, and they can often be fixed using outlet shims with minimal fuss. Dead outlets may not seem like a problem, especially with functioning outlets nearby. However, dead outlets can be a sign of larger problems. Arcing and other issues can heat wires and nearby components to their melting point, which can be incredibly dangerous. Outlets that are warm to the touch are another sign of problems beneath the surface.

Breaker Box Issues

While most homeowners can tackle the occasional tripped breaker, small electrical repairs may be necessary for frequent problems. If your breaker box trips often, your electrician may find a range of issues. Something as simple as an overloaded circuit may be to blame, and solutions range from small electrical repairs to heavy-up services and dedicated circuit installation. 

Common Problems with Lights

Problems with your home’s light fixtures may seem trivial, but they can often indicate the presence of larger wiring issues. Lights that dim or flicker often do so because of poor connections. While this may simply seem irritating, poor connections and faulty wiring can eventually lead to arcing, overheating, or electrical fires. Lightbulbs that burn out more frequently than they should can also be a problem, and they may not necessarily be caused by simple overuse. Overheating is a serious issue, particularly with recessed lights that may be surrounded by insulation. Consulting an electrician for small electrical repairs is the best way to ensure that your home’s electrical system can handle everything you throw at it.
