Electrical fires are a real threat that homeowners should be cautious about. There’s a difference between being paranoid and aware, and our goal at Advanced Electrical Company, LLC is to raise awareness.
As professional electricians, we’ve seen it all, from the close calls to the near misses. We’ve also seen tragedy that could have been avoided.
In our professional opinion, anytime you think you need an electrical safety inspection is a good time to get one. It’s always better to err on the side of caution. However, if you’ve been putting it off, at least be on the lookout for red flags that you should no longer ignore.
Take Time To Protect Your Home With An Electrical Safety Inspection
If even one tragedy could be avoided this year by homeowners getting more diligent about scheduling electrical safety inspections, then why not get proactive? What surprises many people is that they’re experiencing signs of possible distress with their electrical system and don’t even realize it.
Flickering lights are one of the most commonly ignored symptoms of wiring issues, yet most people don’t give it a second thought. Flickering or dimming should grab your attention and cause you to call an electrician.
Frequent Tripped Breakers
Because it’s easy to turn a breaker back on, most homeowners simply do so and then go about their day. If you’re experiencing circuit breakers tripping more than every once in a while, it’s time for an inspection because your system is being overloaded.
Never ignore a burning smell, especially if it lingers. If it’s been since last year when you last used your heater, and the dust is burning off, that’s one thing. A strong, lingering or consistent burning odor should be checked out immediately.
