When To Contact a Licensed Electrician in Winnipeg
When your electrical system is working correctly, you don’t have to think about how all your outlets, light fixtures and appliances are connected. An outdated or overloaded system is a safety risk that should be handled promptly. Review these signs that it’s time to call our team at Handyman Connection:
- Outlets aren’t working
- Breakers routinely trip
- Lights flicker or become dim
- Wiring is outdated
- Outlets and switches are warm or buzzing
- You wish to add outlets or lights to your home
Outlets may not be working because the breaker is tripped or overloaded. Some outlets, like ground-fault circuit interrupter outlets, have a limited lifetime and will fail to work properly. Schedule a replacement service if this style of outlet is 15 or more years old. Breakers are designed to work with a limited amount of amps. If approximately 80% of the listed amperage amount is drawn, the breaker will trip and automatically turn off power to the particular outlets, appliances or light fixtures. This typically only happens if you have too many devices connected to the same breaker or a wiring issue. Outdated wiring includes aluminum or knob and tube wiring. Both of these come with extremely high risks of fire and electrocution. They are not used in modern homes, but older homes may still have some of this outdated wiring. Work with a local electrician to replace it to reduce the risk of a fire. Too few lights or outlets isn’t an emergency and can be scheduled at your convenience. Other signs are serious and should be dealt with quickly to reduce the risk of a fire or electrical shock. Some homes in Winnipeg have dangerously outdated wiring or faulty breakers that won’t prevent a fire in the event of a short circuit or overload.
