COMMON ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS IN HOMES
ELECTRICITY TRIPPING OUT
Do not make the mistake of constantly resetting your circuit breakers; our engineers are experts in fault finding and diagnosis. If a circuit often trips it could be the sign of faulty wiring or accessory or an issue with an appliance that may be causing a fault on the circuit.
FLICKERING LIGHTS AND BLOWN BULBS
Flickering lights can be a sign of faulty wiring or loose connection issues. Do your lamps repeatedly blow? The most common cause for this is as a result of using cheap supermarket lamps. Always use quality lamps from a branded manufacturer.
LIGHT SWITCHES OR SOCKETS THAT GIVE A SMALL ELECTRIC SHOCK
If you receive a shock of any size from metal switches or sockets then call us immediately. It may be a sign of serious earthing issues.
SPARKING SOCKETS OR SWITCHES
Have you ever noticed a spark when switching on a switch or socket? This can be an early sign of a worn accessory and if left unchecked can lead to an electric shock.
SMELL OF BURNING
A burning smell could be a sign of the start of an electrical fire. Typically when an electrical accessory starts to overheat it gives off a distinctive and slightly fishy smell. If you think you have an issue then you should switch off your electrics at the consumer unit and contact us straight away.
