Signs of An Electrical Emergency

Electrical problems can manifest in a variety of ways. Common symptoms of an electrical emergency include:

A common fixture in the 1960s and 1970s, aluminum wiring is susceptible to expanding and contracting as the temperature changes. Over time, this can lead to loose connections and pose a serious fire hazard. A Los Angeles licensed electrician can help you replace your home’s aluminum wiring with safer, industry-standard copper wiring.

A constant buzzing or humming noise near switches or electrical outlets may signal an issue with wiring in the outlet box or a faulty outlets. The noise may be coupled with hot outlet or switch faces.

Frequent circuit breaker trips may point to overloading or a wiring issue. Tripping can also be caused by a faulty appliance connected to the circuit.

A damaged power cord can cause appliances to fail and pose a fire hazard. If you notice damage or exposed wiring within a power cord, turn off the power switch and unplug it.
Commonly caused by stormy or windy weather, dimming or flickering house lights may also point to faulty wiring, damage to the lighting fixture, or an overloaded circuit. If the issue persists during calm weather, it’s time to contact an experienced Los Angeles electrician.

Make sure that your electrical panel is equipped with the proper breaker fuses. Most homes use 120/240 volts with a main electrical panel rated for 100 to 200 amps. Using an improper fuse can cause overloading and melting and start a fire. A hot electrical panel is a surefire sign of an electrical issue.

GFCIs are required by code to be installed anywhere an electrical current touches the ground or is near running water. These devices help protect against deadly electric shocks. A faulty GFCI can place you at risk of injury and may signal faulty wiring.

Faulty wiring is the cause of most electrical issues. Outages, buzzing sounds, burning odors, dead outlets, hot switch faces, flickering lights, and sparking can most likely be traced to damaged or ungrounded wiring.

Proper wiring is key in both indoor and outdoor lighting systems. Faulty wiring or improper connections can cause flickering, dimming, sparking, and burning.

A power outage may occur due to stormy weather, overloading, faulty wiring, or issues with the circuit breaker. Power surges can cause damage to appliances and pose a fire hazard. You can greatly reduce the risk of a power surge by plugging your electrical devices into a surge protector.

The distinct odor of burning plastic is almost a surefire sign of an electrical emergency. If you catch even a faint whiff of burning plastic, immediately shut off the breaker and contact a 24 hour electrician in Los Angeles. Ignoring the problem can result in melting wires and a potential electrical fire.
