Problems in your electrical panel, wires, sockets, fixtures, and switches can all lead to disastrous results, which will only increase the longer you delay troubleshooting. On an annual basis, it has been estimated that over $1.5 billion in the United States is lost in the form of property damage, from both homes. Much of this damage comes from deadly electrical fires, with an average of 54,000 fires per year. To ensure that your household and those you care about stay safe from these terrible risks, be proactive in scheduling troubleshooting when you notice an issue.
The fixtures, wires, and other components of the electrical network in your house are supposed to be installed securely and safely by reliable electricians, and the products that are manufactured nowadays are supposed to be more powerful and durable than ever. So why exactly is your system suddenly starting to fail out of nowhere? Even though you may be confused why these components are breaking down, such failure is actually normal after an extended period of time, simply because your systems are working day in and day out to provide that critical source of power.
Some of the reasons why your system could be malfunctioning include:
- Damage after a severe natural disaster, such as a blizzard, rainstorm, or lightning strike
- Lack of protection from a power outage or blackout caused by toppled electrical lines
- Corrosion of wiring from many years of use
- Damage from being chewed or frayed by rodents and other pests
No matter the cause of your system’s problems, it is important to get in touch with a knowledgeable electrician as soon as possible. Even if it is normal to experience issues from time to time, allowing them to go unattended poses a major risk.
