Electrical repairs in Nashville TN
Whenever a homeowner walks into a room, what is the first thing they do? They turn on the lights. That’s almost a given. For better or for worse, that’s all most people want to know about electricity. When we need it, we get it. Unfortunately, as much as most people would like to think otherwise, electrical work is much more complicated than that. In fact, when it comes to electrical work, what you don’t see or know can not only hurt you, it can kill you.
Wherever a person lives, whether it’s in a home of their own or an apartment, everyone should have the comfort of knowing that the electrical system is operating correctly and at peak efficiency. This is not only due to issues with functionality but safety as well. In order to maximize the chances that an electrical system is operating correctly and safely, periodic inspections should be conducted.
Signs of Trouble
An electrical inspection is an important part of any home maintenance that should be carried out by a qualified electrician once every few years. This is especially true if a homeowner is planning on selling their home since a certificate must be signed that attests to the safety of a home’s electrical system. Once this inspection does happen and is approved, it also makes it much easier to sell a home. Perhaps best of all, inspections are usually inexpensive and don’t require much time to perform.
Even if there are no plans to sell a home, an inspection of the electrical system is a good idea. If you notice things such as the following, it’s a good idea to have an inspection performed:
- Tripping Breakers. A circuit breaker is what amounts to an intentional “weakest link” that is installed in an electrical system. As frustrating as a tripping circuit breaker might be, it is a safety feature that ensures bigger problems won’t happen. Among the problems that a tripping breaker can indicate are overloaded circuits, short circuits, and ground fault issues.
- Buzzing Sounds. Buzzing sounds coming from the main breaker can indicate there is a circuit or a wiring problem. If it is wiring it could be due to corrosion, water intrusion, or a system that needs replacement or upgrade.
- Burning Smells. A burning electrical smell could indicate that there is a serious electrical problem. If there is damage to your system or it is defective, an appliance or other device can overheat. This would often explain the burning smell. There could also be damage to the wiring.
- Dimming Lights. Lights that dim when an appliance such as an air conditioner, washer, dryer, or microwave comes on might be an indication that these are on the same circuit as the lights.
