Most Common Summer Electrical Repairs You Might Run Into

Alabama summers are beyond hot! It’s not surprising that our home electrical systems are used heavily during the summer months. Every day year-long appliances such as refrigerators, televisions and other electronics use a lot of electrical current. Add the increased use of air conditioners into the mix, and you can easily see why summer time would see an increase in the need for home electrical repairs.

One question we’ve been asked recently at Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air is, 

“What are the most common electrical issues that require repairs from a professionally trained electrician?”

Electrical issues can vary from home to home, especially if it’s a commercial multi-home situation. Structures that have more than one housing unit typically have unique situations that always require a professional electrician like those employed by Dixie. Whether your electrical problem seems small or large or you have a single-family or multi-family dwelling, Call Dixie and It’s Done!

Some of the most common issues we receive calls for at Dixie are:

  • Tripped breakers – If breakers are tripping more frequently because your AC is turning off and on or for any other reason, you should call a trained technician to come assess the situation and make the necessary repairs as soon as possible. Dixie has the expertise to help with your breaker box and wiring to ensure all is as it should be for the safe operation of your appliances.
  • Outdoor lighting issues – Many in the Dixie service areas of Montgomery and Auburn-Opelika have pools or docks at swimming holes. During our long, hot summers, these swimming areas get heavy use, often into the nighttime hours. Having proper lighting ensures family and friends stay safe. Installing a surge protector to ensure there’s no electrical current in the water is an extra water safety feature that Dixie is prepared to install for you. Call to schedule an appointment today.
  • Ceiling fan replacement – Ceiling fans don’t produce cool air, but by moving the cool air around, a ceiling fan can enhance your HVAC system in the indoor spaces, on patios and in screened porches. To ensure the overall safe and proper operation of a ceiling fan, always engage a professional electrician for installation or replacement. Call Dixie and It’s Done. Quickly and efficiently.
  • Flickering lights – If your lights flicker when your AC or other large appliances turn on and off, you could have a wiring or a circuit breaker issue. Just Call Dixie and allow our trained professionals to fully inspect your electrical system to ensure the wiring is up to date and no faulty breakers are to blame.
