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 In that case, the culprit could be a loose electrical connection, outdated wiring, or a power surge.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.

We were contacted by a very professional lady from Custom Electrical Service to perform a repair to our solar panels. They had been contacted by SunPower that our unit was not producing correctly. We were told told the service was under warranty and would be completed in the next 2 - 3 weeks. An appointment was scheduled and the service people came when they said they would come! The gentlemen (and Ii use the term correctly) were very polite and respectful of our property. They had to replace things (which means there were old parts to dispose of). There was no trace of any debris when they left. Our panels are now working perfectly again!

I have used Custom Electric for several needed repairs. Some of our outlets and switches were not up to code and we needed them replaced. There was a problem with some exterior outlets as well. They were replaced and protected with the appropriate weather covers. All the work we have had Custom Electric perform has been very professional and completed without any further issues. Everyone I have dealt with has been very knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. I would recommend them to anyone needing electrical work. I think their pricing has been very fair as well. I know who I will call or refer when there is a need for electrical work.

Custom Electrical was awesome. We had some issues with our solar panels and turns out the service panel had some issues too. They put in a warranty work order with the manufacturer and took care of the issue right away. I was very impressed with the responsiveness of the company and further impressed by the fact that they were not the original panel installation company, but treated me like a long time customer. This company will be doing all my future electrical work and will be my go to company when asked for a reference by my friends and family. Thank you Custom Electrical!
