Electrical Issues Albertville

Published in Blog, Electrical Issues

Electrical_Issues_AlbertvilleWired Electric can solve your electrical issues Albertville. Many homes have wiring that’s old and essentially out-of-date. Today people have so many things to plug in, such as electronics, lighting and appliances, that it’s not uncommon to experience electrical issues Albertville.

When old circuits need re-wiring, Wired Electric can do the job. If you are in an older home, it’s a smart idea to have a professional electrician from Wired Electric look at the insulation on your wires to see if it’s dried out and/or fraying. Many homes built in the 1960s and ‘70s have cheap aluminum wiring that may have since corroded. It’s no longer considered safe. Your electrician can also look for corrosion in your service panel and check to make sure no one installed a fuse with a higher amperage than your wires can safely handle.

Other electrical issues Albertville residents should consider having an electrician check for include “overlamping,” where a light fixture has a bulb in it that’s a higher wattage than what the fixture was designed for, as well as an over-wired panel with more circuits than it’s rated to handle. Uncovered junction boxes should be covered. If lights flicker when it’s windy, there may be frayed wiring in the weatherhead causing a short whenever the cables move.

One of the most typical electrical issues Albertville residents face these days is having too few outlets. Rather than rely on extension cords and power strips, consider hiring Wired Electric to add more outlets in places where you need them. It’s also a good idea to add GFCIs (ground-fault circuit interrupters) that can shut down circuits within 4 milliseconds, before current can cause a deadly shock– something great to have in wet areas like your bathroom or kitchen.
