Electrical Repair FAQs

Being able to recognize and understand common electrical hazards can go a long way in reducing the likelihood of costly electrical repairs. Some ways in which you can avoid the need for electrical repairs include:

  • Safeguard against electrical surges
  • Get regular electrical maintenance
  • Keep your electrical appliances dry
  • Make sure that the wattage for your lights is correct
  • Unplug appliances by the plug and not the cord
  • Secure electrical outlets
  • Leave extensive repairs to the expert electricians
Legally, you’re entitled to do your own electrical work in your home. However, it’s strongly recommended that you hire a licensed electrician for electrical work around your home. If you do engage in DIY electrical repair work, make sure to abide by the laws, get a valid permit, and have an inspector check your work to ensure it’s safe and follows the necessary regulations.

A short circuit is an excess of voltage that provides a surplus of current flow to a power source. A short circuit occurs when a low-resistance path receives a high-volume electrical current which flows through a “short” route which can result in electrical shock, appliance damage, or a fire.

The way to fix a short circuit is to replace the wire. If you have no electrical experience, it’s recommended that you consult with an electrician before trying any DIY electrical repairs.

If you’re trying to fix a blown fuse by yourself, it’s important to have the basic knowledge about your fuse box, the proper tools and equipment, and that you take the necessary safety precautions.

If you have a blown fuse, use the following steps as a guideline:

  1. Unplug all electrical appliances
  2. Turn off the power
  3. Find your fuse box
  4. Identify the broken fuse
  5. Replace the faulty fuse
  6. Test it out

 

If your fuse is constantly tripping, call an electrician to inspect your circuit breaker. A licensed and experienced electrician can help identify the root cause of a blown fuse and can help prevent larger and more costly electrical problems.

Some common signs that you might need electrical repair work done by a licensed electrician include:

  • Abnormally high energy costs
  • Flickering lights
  • Power surges
  • Frequently blown fuses
  • Incessant buzzing noises
  • Burning smells
  • Shocks when unplugging things

For any and all electrical repairs, you should practice extreme caution. Whether you’re a regular everyday handy man or not, it’s best to leave electrical repairs to a licensed and certified electrician that knows what he’s doing. Some of the main reasons that engaging in a DIY electrical repair project is a bad idea include:

  • Exposing yourself to shock & injuries
  • The potential of fire hazards
  • Your repairs will likely not be done to code
  • It could lead to more expensive problems down the road
  • Potential fines if you fail an electrical inspection
