What Are The Common Problems Found With Poor Electrical Installations?

No matter how handy one considers themself, electrical installations should never be completed by an unlicensed person. Even when seeking licensed professionals, due diligence should be taken to ensure their track record is strong. There is no room for error when it comes to electrical wiring. At worst, electrical shocks can be deadly, and at best faulty electrical wiring can cost a fortune to fix. 

Here are some of the most common issues that can occur through poor electrical installations:

Bulbs Burning Out Too Often

When bulbs are burning out more often than they should be, it’s a good indication that there may be issues with the electrical installation. 

Dead Outlets

Discovering dead outlets clearly indicates that electrical components are not working as they should. Dead outlets are a sign that something is wrong with the wiring and should be looked at immediately to avoid other potential issues coming next.  

Overheating Power Sources

Loose connections can lead to overheating power sources. This is a big alarm bell that professionals should be called as overheating could cause injuries and/or fires. 

Regularly Triggering (tripping) Breakers

Faulty appliances are the most common issue to trigger breakers and switch off the electricity. As it’s so commonplace, there can be a little passivity when this happens, but regularly triggered breakers should be assessed. Hopefully, it’s the microwave, but you don’t want it to risk being a bigger issue that could destroy your breaker and leave you at risk. 

Circuit Breaker Issues

Poor electrical installations can cause circuit breakers to malfunction, which puts the building and its inhabitants at risk should electrical surges or other issues occur. 

Don’t risk electrical installations to any old electrician. Work with professional commercial electricians that can prove their workmanship, reliability and commitment to quality through exceptional past projects.
