When your home is experiencing electrical problems, you do not want to ignore them. Even if it seems to be a minor issue, it could be something that puts you and your loved ones in danger. In this blog post, we’ll discuss a few of the most common electrical problems that people face. If you are currently experiencing electrical problems, do not try and fix it yourself. Contact Mr. Sunshine’s Home Services for electrical services in Goodyear.

Flickering Lights

Have you been noticing the lights flickering constantly, making your home look like the set of a horror movie at night? Not only is this annoying, but could be the sign of a hazardous issue such as poor connection. This can eventually lead to loose or corroded connections which might cause sparks or overheating which, of course, may cause a fire.

Constant Burnouts

If your bulbs are frequently blowing out, one cause could be overuse. But that isn’t the only possibility. There are actually a few culprits that could be to blame including:

  • Insulation too close to the source of the light
  • Poor wiring
  • Too much or too high wattage

No matter what the issue may be, you’re going to want to get the help of an experienced and qualified electrician to find the source of the problem and safely fix it.

Dead Outlets

Dead outlets are a nuisance that you and your family likely want to get remedied as soon as possible (cue the inevitable freakout when the cell phone’s battery is getting low). More often than not, this is due to a poor connection, arcing, or even a tripped breaker which causes all sorts of problems.

Electrical Shocks

It’s no secret that getting shocked is not a pleasant feeling. Even if the shock is mild, it is not enjoyable. If it comes when you plug one of your devices into an outlet, then this should be a cause of concern for you. There can be a variety of reasons for this to happen, but no matter, it’s best to get the help of an electrician.

Costly Bills

Have your recent electrical bills caused your jaw to drop? If they have seemed higher than usual, this isn’t a coincidence. There are many reasons for this such as:

  • Outdated appliances
  • Vampire appliances (appliances that are running but not being used)
  • Overused electrical appliances
  • Lights and fans that are not being used strategically

In an upcoming blog, we will provide you with a few ways that we can help you to reduce your electric bill through our services.
