Our team at Mister Sparky by Wise Electric Control Inc. understands that you depend on your home’s electrical system for a variety of things, from preventing your perishable food from spoiling, to letting you communicate with your loved ones, to keeping your indoor environment comfortable. An unfortunate truth is that the various parts of your electrical system will wear out over time, and this includes your outlets. If your outlets have been acting up lately, we encourage you to call our team to come have a look and help you determine whether you need outlet repair or replacement. In this article, we’ll go over some of the signs that you have an outlet problem in need of our attention.
- The outlet doesn’t work. Starting with an obvious sign, if your outlet is no longer powering your electronics, you may need outlet repair. We recommend trying the breaker switch to see if that fixes the issue, but if the problem persists then you should give us a call.
- Your plugs are loose and fall out easily. Another sign that you may need outlet repair can be seen in how your plugs fit into them. Simply put, if your plugs don’t fit snugly into the outlet and tend to fall out easily, you likely have a problem. In this situation, we at Mister Sparky by Wise Electric Control Inc. encourage you to give us a call so that we can examine the issue in more detail.
- Your appliances keep turning on and off. A third sign that you may need outlet repair is if the appliances connected to that outlet keep flickering on and off. This behavior is a sign that the wiring of your outlet can no longer keep up with the power demand, and it merits attention from professionals like us at Mister Sparky by Wise Electric Control Inc.
