Common home electrical repair needs

Many homeowners are able to do basic electrical repairs around the house, like resetting a breaker, changing a light bulb or replacing the faceplate of an outlet. However, in many cases, the following electrical repairs should be left to trained professionals:

  • Failing outlets

  • Sparking outlets

  • Bulbs that burn out frequently 

  • Warm outlets or switches 

  • Flickering lights 

  • Service upgrades

  • Frequently tripping breakers

Troubleshooting electrical issues in a house

While many technical aspects of electrical troubleshooting should be left to trained professionals, there are a few steps you can take in attempts to identify the source of the problem.

  • If your power is out completely, check to see if your neighbors have power. If they do, it's likely a local issue with your home's system. If their power is also out, it's likely an issue with the utility company. 

  • If only some of your power is out, it could be an overloaded circuit. Check to see if someone in the home was using a hair dryer, air conditioner, or other high-energy appliance.

  • If too much power is being drawn through your system or circuit, you might have tripped a circuit breaker or blown a fuse. Check your main panel and identify any breakers that might have been tripped or fuse blown. Simply resetting the breaker or replacing the fuse, or resetting your GFCI device, may solve your issue. If your home still has a fuse type panel, you should seriously consider an upgrade to a breaker type panel.

Safety precautions and tips for home electrical systems

Many electrical issues and safety hazards can be avoided with a few simple precautions in your home:

  • Make sure to use the correct wattage light bulbs in your lamps and other appliances 

  • Replaces or repair damaged power cords 

  • Keep appliances and electrical cords away from water 

  • Avoid overloading a single outlet with too many appliances 

  • Unplug your electrical appliances when they're not in use
