4 Signs Electrical Repairs Are Needed, Fall River, Wisconsin

Sometimes it’s obvious when you’re in need of an electrician, such as when the power goes out; but other issues may not be as apparent. There are a number of red flags to look out for that signal a need for electrical repairs. Dauman Electric in Fall River, WI, has over 15 years of experience, making them experts at identifying areas of concern. Below, they share a few of these, as well as the inner mechanics of why certain issues arise. 

How to Know If You Need Electrical Repairs 

1. Hot Outlets

It’s not uncommon for an outlet to feel a little warm to the touch, especially if it receives a lot of use; but if yours are noticeably hot, you could have an electrical issue. The culprit could be bad wiring or a damaged electrical system, both of which should be repaired quickly to avoid electrical fires or possible shocks. 

2. Frequently Tripped Breakers

Have you noticed every time you plug in a certain appliance that the lights go out? Or, perhaps there’s an outlet in a particular room that always trips the breaker when used. Frequently tripped breakers or blown fuses indicate an overloaded circuit or power surge. If not addressed promptly, this can lead to a costly spike in power usage. 

3. Dead Outlet

​​​​​​​4. Flickering Light Fixture

Having a light that flickers on and off isn’t just a nuisance, it can also be a clue that there’s more going on with your electrical system than meets the eye. This and frequently burned out bulbs are likely caused by faulty wiring in the fixture itself.  ​​​​​​​
