Common Signs of Residential Electrical Problems

Many electrical appliances generate heat when on. Outlets and switches, however, should always be cool to the touch (except for dimmer switches which can occasionally get warm). If your outlet or switch feels hot, immediately unplug any cords or turn off the light. Do not use it until a Custom Electrical Services professional can inspect your wiring. Excessive heat may be the fault of loose or damaged wiring and can create a fire hazard if left unexamined.

A bad or loose bulb can cause flickering lights. Suppose the problem persists after switching out the bulb, or you catch multiple lights across your home flickering. In that case, the culprit could be a loose electrical connection, outdated wiring, or a power surge. Power surges can sometimes be fixed by unplugging unnecessary appliances and devices. Still, frequent flickering lights may be a sign you need to upgrade your home’s wiring. A big job like that requires expertise you can find at Custom Electrical Services .

Over time, connections between electrical wires and old switches or outlets can loosen. This can disrupt the flow of electricity in the wiring and produce a fire hazard. If you notice any loose, broken, or missing outlet covers or switch plates, replace them and contact Custom Electrical Services to examine the wiring as soon as possible.

Dead outlets can result from a loose wire connection, arc faults, tripped breakers, or excessive heat from faulty wiring. If you find and repair a blown fuse or tripped breaker and the outlet remains dead, the issue may require the help of a local electrician in Utah.

You may have a rodent problem on your hands if you notice chewed or frayed wiring. If you suspect your wiring may be compromised, contact a licensed electrical contractor to inspect and replace the damaged wiring. Any damaged wiring is an urgent shock and fire hazard.

Circuit breakers are designed to shut off power whenever their system is overloaded. Don’t be alarmed if you have to reset a breaker every so often. But, if your circuit breakers frequently trip, they may be overloaded with too much electricity. Electric overloads can come from either too many high–energy demanding devices connected to the circuit, or deeper problems with your home’s wiring. One of our qualified electricians can help you pinpoint where the problem lies.

Strange smells from electrical outlets can be a serious issue, especially if you detect a burning odor. This may indicate that your wiring is creating a fire risk by heating the outlet enough to melt its plastic sheathing. If you notice an odd new smell coming from your outlets, fuse box, or breaker panel, immediately unplug anything connected to it and contact a qualified electrician for an inspection.

All electrical appliances make noise. Quiet, infrequent sounds such as vibrations are common and usually not of concern. However, loud and unusual noises emanating from your electrical system could signal wiring malfunction. If you hear concerning sounds coming from a specific appliance or fixture, unplug it and don’t use the socket until a professional can examine it.

If you observe any smoke, discoloration, or scorch marks coming from your home’s outlets, it is a sign that the wiring in your home has been damaged in some way and is releasing heat. This heat can do much worse damage if left unchecked.

Why Seek Help From a Professional?

When looking at your home’s electrical system malfunctions, your safety is the number one priority. If you find any problems with your wiring, do not attempt to fix it yourself. Instead, ensure a safe, effective, and quality repair for your residential electrical issues by entrusting the job to your local electrician in Utah.

I will come to them every time. They are friendly, honest, and always on time! Absolutely recommend.

Had these guys and gals help me update my electrical as well as run some power out to a shop. The whole process was super smooth, Kourtnie nailed the paperwork side of things (even got a permit and inspection that I had no idea we needed) and Cory was great to work with on the installation side of things. The price was the same from the original bid all the way to the final product, which is always nice. The work itself was exactly what we agreed upon. Really nothing but good things to say about my whole experience. Would totally recommend these guys to any of my friends!

We are so appreciative of the work that Morgan and his team did on behalf of Custom Electrical for our new home. Custom Electrical provided a thorough, exact, and honest/fair bid right from the start, and they stuck to it! We had a budget, and they respected it. They were always timely and very professional. Attention was paid to every detail, and they made sure things were just how we wanted them. They went above and beyond in so many ways, from being patient with our kids running around to coming back an extra time to make sure everything was just right. We will be recommending them to everyone we know. Thanks you guys!

5 stars and a forever customer! My family moved into an older home and we've had Custom Electric over several times to help get our home working a bit more how I would like it. I appreciate that I am always able to get someone to my home quickly- whether it's to install a light switch or rewire an entire room. Everyone who's been in my home has been professional, friendly, and consistent in their quality work. Maybe most of all, I am grateful for the honest communication and great customer service! After the last visit, I had some concerns that were cleared up right away with kindness and respect (especially for dealing with a not so electrical savvy me). I would send everyone I know and love who have electrical need to Custom Electric- they won't let you down!!

We had a baseboard heater stop working in our baby's room. Custom Electric came out and quickly repaired the problem. Scheduling was easy, the technicians and staff were all very professional and great to work with. When we need electrical work done in the future, we will definitely be working with them again.

These guys/gals are always very helpful. I got a tech out to the house same day I called to repair a GFI receptacle that kept tripping open. Cory (technician) troubleshoot the problem, corrected it and was gone in about 30 minutes. I have used them for other projects with no complaints. I use them without hesitation for any electrical issues.
