Should I Upgrade My Electrical Panel?
Electrical panels are built to last a long time, but unfortunately, they can’t last forever. Over time, they experience plenty of wear and begin to break down and become less effective. Electrical panels are responsible for safely distributing power throughout your home, and once they begin to show signs of aging, it is important to replace them before they become unsafe.
Signs that you need to upgrade your electrical panel include:
- You rely on a number of power strips and extension cords throughout your home
- You lose power if you plug in one too many appliances
- Your wiring is frayed
- You experience electrical shock when touching light switches
- Your panel hasn’t been upgraded in decades
- Your lights dim every time you turn on certain appliances
- Your outlets or switches are burnt
Signs You Need Electrical Repair
When something is wrong with your electrical system, you need fast repairs. Electrical systems have the power to wreak havoc on our homes or businesses; in fact, one of the leading causes of residential fires is malfunctioning electrical systems. Because they can be so dangerous, it is incredibly important that you take action right away when you notice something is off.
Signs you need to schedule electrical repair include:
- Yours is the only house in the neighborhood without power
- Your circuit breaker keeps tripping
- There is a burning smell coming from your outlets
- Your outlets or light switches are burnt
- Your light switch doesn’t work
- Some of your wires are frayed
- Your lights flicker
- Your lights are too bright or too dim
- You receive a shock when you touch your light switch or a plugged-in appliance
As mentioned before, it is absolutely crucial that you never attempt DIY electrical repairs. Calling in a professional electrician ensures that the repair is completed safely and properly. Our Portsmouth electricians always work with your safety in mind, ensuring a job well done.
Benefits of Installing Ceiling Fans
If you don’t have any ceiling fans in your home, it’s time to schedule an installation. Ceiling fans are an inexpensive, easy way to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. When a ceiling fan is set to circulate clockwise, it pulls air upwards creating a cool breeze. When a fan is set counter-clockwise, warm air is pushed downwards to keep you warm. By keeping your home more comfortable, ceiling fans can save you up to 40% on your utility bills!
