4 Common Residential Electrical Repairs
Repeated Blown Fuses
A “blown” fuse is a burned-out fuse. A fuse is a small piece of metal ribbon threaded through a ceramic element that fits into a fuse panel. When too much electricity passes through the metal ribbon, it melts, and the fuse fails or “blows”. If you’re experiencing repeated blown fuses, you may be asking too much about your electrical system.
Consistant Buzzing Noises
Something called “mains hum,” tends to occur at about 60 hertz. This is normal and usually happens with large appliances like refrigerators. However, the buzzing is different and may or may not be typical. It usually occurs at 120-180 hertz. There are several potential reasons for buzzing in your home.
Sparks or Arcs
A spark is a short electric discharge, like when you get shocked in the winter. An arc is like a continuous spark. Sparks happen each time you plug something in. These sparks will be tiny, blue in color, and last only a second. It’s time to get concerned when you see sparks that don’t go away in a brief second, come out of holes in the outlet, are yellow or white, or produce a burning smell.
Loose Power Outlets
Power outlets usually come loose because the electrical box attached to them was installed too far back in the wall. If it’s too far back, the electrical box isn’t very secure and can jostle or break wires set back in the wall. This can cause sparking, arcs, and fires.
General Residential Electrical Services FAQ
Why should I get an electrical code update?
Whether you own a newer home or building or you own one that’s older — it’s always smart to hire a licensed electrician every three to five years to conduct an electrical safety inspection. Doing so ensures your home or building remains up to code to keep the place, the belongings and the occupants safe. Experts say it’s essential everyone follows the National Electrical Code as well as local and state codes. NEC codes are updated once every 3 years. As the leading electrical code standard in the U.S., the NEC establishes the basics of electrical safety in homes and buildings throughout the U.S. The importance of this code is usually adopted by local jurisdictions. Compliance with NEC code, as such, makes it easier to guarantee that electrical installation work is done without leaving safety hazards.
