Inconvenience vs. danger
This is the thing about electrical problems in the home: Some can cause a simple inconvenience while some can pose a real danger to you and your family. In all cases, Dixie works hard to solve your problems and offer the peace of mind that comes with safety. Every electrician we employ is fully licensed, background checked, and drug tested.
When to call for help
Many people want to know when it’s time to call in professional help. Because electricity can be dangerous, we urge you to always err on the side of caution. Here are some situations that often require the skills of an electrician:
- Outlets or circuits dead for no apparent reason
- Circuit breaker trips repeatedly
- Lights flickering
- Electrical shocks from a switch or outlet or when using an appliance
- Outlet or switch gets unusually hot
- Signs of arcing anywhere in the electrical system
We’re going to treat these separately because surges can be extremely damaging to a home’s electrical system and/or appliances, especially sensitive electronic devices. Lightning is usually considered the most common cause, but they can also occur because of problems in the electrical grid delivering power to your home and problems in your home’s wiring. Here are some signs you may be having power surges:
- Devices lose power or suddenly reset themselves (clocks start blinking)
- Tripped circuit breakers or safety switches
- Electrical devices fail for no apparent reason
- Lights suddenly get bright
It you believe you’ve had or are having surges; we urge you to call in an electrician to inspect your system. Dixie can also install whole-house surge protection. Think of surge protection the way you would insurance. You spend some money upfront to protect appliances and electrical devices worth thousands of dollars.
