Our team at Mister Sparky by Wise Electric Control Inc. understands that your home is important to you, and we want to help you keep it in great condition. When it comes to home maintenance and repair, there are some things you can handle yourself, and others that you should really enlist professionals to deal with. In this article, we’ll go over a few signs that you need to call our kind of specialist–namely, an electrician.
- You Smell Burning- One sign that you should call an electrician right away is a burning smell in the air–if you smell smoke and can’t figure out where it’s coming from, there’s a chance that it’s coming from faulty wiring in your walls. If this happens to you, the first thing you should do is cut power to your home and call the fire department to find and put out any fires that may have started. Once they give you the all-clear, your next call should be to an electrician to get the problem fixed.
- Your Outlets Shock You- Another situation in which you should call an electrician as soon as possible is if you are getting electrical shocks when you plug appliances into your outlets. This can be caused by a number of issues, from faulty wiring to unstable current, and you will need a trained professional to figure out what is going on and to provide the necessary solution.
- Your Circuits Trip a Lot- A third sign that you should call an electrician is if your circuits are tripping frequently. This is a sign that your system is getting overloaded on a regular basis, and you should call a professional to help you determine why.
