4 General Reasons to Call an Electrician

Not Enough Outlets

If plug-strips and multi-receptacle add-ons are strangling your outlets, your electrical system is working beyond capacity. Additional circuits with duplex receptacles are needed to restore order- and safety.

Consistant Buzzing Noises

Something called “mains hum,” tends to occur at about 60 hertz. This is normal and usually happens with large appliances like refrigerators. However, the buzzing is different and may or may not be typical. It usually occurs at 120-180 hertz. There are several potential reasons for buzzing in your home.

Safety Concerns

Wet locations such as kitchens, baths, utility rooms, and grounded areas like your basement or garage now require outlets protected by Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters or GFCIs. Easy retrofit installation will make your home code-compliant and safe. If GFCIs have already been installed near sinks and dishwashers, test their reset buttons to ensure they’re working correctly.

Loose Power Outlets

Power outlets usually come loose because the electrical box attached to them was installed too far back in the wall. If it’s too far back, the electrical box isn’t very secure and can jostle or break wires set back in the wall. This can cause sparking, arcs, and fires.

General Electrical Repair FAQ

Why should I get an electrical code update?

Whether you own a newer home or building or you own one that’s older — it’s always smart to hire a licensed electrician every three to five years to conduct an electrical safety inspection. Doing so ensures your home or building remains up to code to keep the place, the belongings and the occupants safe. Experts say it’s essential everyone follows the National Electrical Code as well as local and state codes. NEC codes are updated once every 3 years. As the leading electrical code standard in the U.S., the NEC establishes the basics of electrical safety in homes and buildings throughout the U.S. The importance of this code is usually adopted by local jurisdictions. Compliance with NEC code, as such, makes it easier to guarantee that electrical installation work is done without leaving safety hazards.
