How to Keep Your Electrical Outlets Maintained
Keep your electrical outlets safe and functioning properly by keeping them maintained. Some ways to keep them working include:
- Gently insert plugs into outlets to cut down on the wear and tear.
- Shut off appliances, fixtures, and devices before unplugging them.
- When unplugging an item from an outlet, pull by the plug, not the cord.
- Don’t overload a unit with extension cords, appliances, and multi-way plugs.
- Schedule an appointment to have an electrical contractor inspect your devices to ensure they are functioning properly, are correctly wired, and are safely grounded.
Keep your appliances functioning properly by installing dedicated appliance circuits. Call us today to schedule services at your home!
Common Problems With Circuit Breakers
A malfunctioning circuit breaker can put your home at risk and cause inconveniences for your household. To avoid potentially dangerous situations, schedule services with an electrician if you experience any of these common issues with your unit:
- Miswired circuits: Bad wiring can cause minor issues like flickering lights, or can lead to more serious problems like your system shutting down.
- Overloaded circuits: Putting too much demand on circuits can cause a fire or risk injury.
- Short circuits: This can occur when a hot wire makes contact with a neutral wire, causing the electrical charge to bypass its normal route and create a dangerous current. This can lead to burned wires and can cause damage to your electronics or appliances.
- Buzzing noises: This acts as an alert to make you aware of a wiring problem or an overloaded breaker.
