Whether you’re a new homeowner or you’ve been in the same house for years, having an electric repairman on speed dial will come in handy when something goes wrong and you need repairs done. Here are the most common reasons you might need to call your electrician. 


When you need more voltage to power your home, you need a qualified electrician to upgrade your electrical panel. Not only does this protect your house from catching fire, but it improves the efficiency of your entire electrical system. 

Flickering Lights

Flickering lights are a good sign that your electrical system is overloaded. This is not a DIY job. You need a trained professional to help you determine the cause and decide how to remedy it – usually with additional voltage in our electrical panel.

Snaked Wiring

This refers to a mess of electrical wires that crisscross their way through and around your house. Damage to one of these wires likely means damage to the surrounding ones as well. Not to mention, it doesn’t look that great. An electric repairman can fix the safety issues and improve the aesthetics at the same time. 

Trips and Blown Fuses

If your circuit breaker trips often, you definitely have a problem. This indicates that your electrical needs are more than the current system can handle. On the other hand, blown fuses are another issue. In either case, a review of your needs is necessary so you can adapt your system accordingly. 

Early Detection of Issues

Prevention can save you a lot of money and trouble and that’s when an electrician comes in handy. We can run tests and diagnostics and detect potential electrical problems before they are causing you trouble. That way you can remedy them in a timely way. 

Aluminum Wiring

If you have aluminum wiring in your house, you have a dangerously significant risk of short circuits and house fires. To prevent this danger, have your aluminum wiring swapped out for connections and wires that are safer. Our electricians can do this job for you. 

Warm Light Switches

Electricity gives off some degree of heat, but if your light switches are extra warm or they shock you when you turn them off or on, you need an electrical repairman right away. This warmth indicates danger and needs to be fixed as soon as possible to prevent accidents or fires. 

Buzzing Sound

If your electrical system makes a buzzing noise, you know there’s a problem. In this case, you should turn off the supply line and call an electrician for help. 

High Energy Bills

Faulty lines and other electrical problems can cause your energy bills to go up. If you notice a higher number on your monthly bills, you need an electrician to diagnose and fix the issue.
