Frequently Asked Questions

worker fixing some electrical wires

  • Q. When should I call an electrician?

    Call an electrician if your fuses blow frequently, your circuit breaker trips often, you hear buzzing sounds in the walls, or a light switch fails to work. Also, if you’re using multiple extension cords in one area, it’s time for a professional check.

  • Q. Why might I need a new electrical circuit?

    A new circuit may be necessary if your home is old and can’t support modern appliances, or if one circuit is overloaded. Adding a new appliance could also require a new circuit.

    A hot breaker is dangerous. Don’t touch it—call a licensed electrician to evaluate the situation.

  • Q. How can I identify an unsafe electrical outlet?

    Replace the outlet if its faceplate is loose or damaged, it feels hot, shows burn marks, or if plugs easily fall out.
