What Is Causing Trouble in Your Electrical System?
Is the electrical system acting up? Considering the amount of work the network has to accomplish, it is no wonder that it may experience issues from time to time. One thing to check before calling an electrician is that all the appliances are fully plugged in. A loose connection can cause all sorts of havoc, from flickering lamps to vacuums that pause mid-cleaning.
Alternatively, too many extension cords might be used. When these power strips are all plugged into a single socket, it can become overloaded, leading to a tripped breaker. There may even be a cord that has been chewed by a wayward rodent. Since there are several issues that could create a malfunctional electrical system, get in touch with an expert. We can offer a full inspection to see whether one or multiple issues are at fault.
Electrical components are eventually going to wear out. To prevent this from happening, it is important to call a knowledgeable electrician right away. The question is, how can someone determine that they need repairs in the first place? Recognizing the warning signs of electrical failure is the best way to avoid accidental shocks and fires.
Seek rapid repairs from our experts when observing:
- The lights will suddenly become dim before growing bright again
- There are scorch marks on the panel or the wiring
- Some of the wires have been frayed, cut, or even chewed through by rodents
- Turning on electrical devices and appliances emits a burning smell
- Only one appliance can be used at once without tripping the circuit breaker
- Sockets and switches feel warm to the touch even when they aren’t being used

Electrical panels are essential for distributing power throughout the house. If one is malfunctional, it could create a hazardous situation. Usually, panels have a lifespan of between 25 to 40 years. This is already a wide range, and the amount of maintenance a panel receives can affect it even more. It is best to speak to the team at Paff Electric & Solar to schedule an inspection of the panel and see if it still has life left. Sometimes, a panel may be relatively new but is just incapable of handling the extensive power required by more high-tech devices.
