What’s Going On?
Alright, so let’s take a step back for a second. In order for us to properly diagnose your electrical problem, and make sure that you’re dealing with a problem that requires repairs, we need to address what’s going on. Take a look at common problems we deal with down below and tell us which sound familiar, or close to what you’re experiencing.
- Certain outlets and appliances don’t have any power.
- Things keep shutting off randomly in my home.
- There’s a fuse that keeps tripping.
Each of these can be related to a faulty electrical system. For starters, it’s a good idea to make a rough sketch of which outlets are having problems if you’ve pinpointed the issue to them. Once you can tell a professional electrician the specific outlets that don’t have power, they can more easily find the location of the frayed wire, broken fuse, or whatever else is causing the problem. Basically, it’s a good idea to write down your problem in clear terms so you can easily communicate what’s going on with a professional.
When your fuses keep tripping, that’s usually a signal that your fuse box is in need of an upgrade. Most homes now use state of the art electrical panels that are built to handle the wider variety of devices and appliances we use in the 21st century. Consider upgrading your old electrical system if you’re struggling with this problem often.
Over time, wires can lose integrity and begin to fray. This doesn’t mean you’ve been treating your appliances poorly, it’s just something that can occur at random. It’s important to have frayed wires addressed because they can become a fire hazard when neglected.
Other Broken Components
Sometimes having a problem with your electrical system can seem like there’s a ghost in your house.

Take note of all these problems and remember that they don’t have to be permanent. Your home doesn’t have to be the house from the Poltergeist movie. Instead, call our professionals and tell us about your problem. We promise we can help.
