If you have questions about any specific electrical repairs you need, reach out to our team!

Flickering Lights

Flickering lights become a big inconvenience, but they’re also a sign that could indicate a more serious problem. This disruption could be due to problems with a bulb, which is an easy fix. However, it could also mean there’s a problem with the wires, an overloaded circuit or more.

If replacing or tightening the light bulb doesn’t fix the problem, call in an expert for a professional inspection.

Dead, Hot Or Sparking Outlets

Your outlets are responsible for a lot — such as your access to phone chargers, toasters, hair straighteners, gaming consoles and more. You’ll want to make sure these outlets are always safe to use.

Outlets that grow hot or create sparks when you plug something in are a major concern. Similarly, an outlet that won’t power your device at all is another big problem. No matter what issue your outlets face, Longacre can help restore them to proper condition.

Frayed Wires

Having frayed wires is a serious issue that shows itself in different ways — such as flickering lights or outlet problems. Proper wiring is necessary for the safe use of electrical equipment, so homeowners should familiarize themselves with signs of a problem — including buzzing noises and strange smells. Once you suspect a problem, call an electrician to fix the issue!

What Causes Electrical Issues?

Understanding what causes electrical problems will help you know how to prevent them. Now remember, these problems are not fully avoidable, but careful maintenance can minimize your risk for problems. Below are common causes of electrical issues:

  • Animal interference — If animals sneak into your home from the outdoors, they may find wires to meddle with. Rodents are common culprits of chewed wires.
  • Old age — Your electrical systems and wiring aren’t immortal, and as time passes, they’ll be subject to the same wear and tear any system faces.
  • Water — Electricity and water are not friends, and they should never interact as it can have dangerous results.
  • Improper installation — If your appliances aren’t connected properly, they’re likely to create problems in your home.

With this information in mind, adopt strategies to protect your property. Examine your home for gaps and holes that could allow critters or rainfall to access your electrical components. Also, be careful in areas like kitchens or bathrooms where both water and electricity are necessary resources. Never let the two cross paths.

Be sure to keep the age of your system in mind, and as it reaches the end of its lifespan, call a professional to assess the efficiency of your system. For any repair, maintenance or installation needs, Longacre is happy to help!

Protect Your Home With Professional Electric Repairs

Changing a light bulb or installing a ceiling fan is one thing, but rewiring a home is another. While ambitious homeowners may feel confident in their DIY abilities, our Longacre team strongly advises against any do-it-yourself attempts when it comes to complex electrical repairs.
