If you think you shouldn’t call an electrician because you can complete an electric home repair yourself, or you’re fearful that it will be a waste of time to ask an expert to come out for a “small job,” we’re here to tell you to pick up the phone and dial. Whether you choose to believe it or not, your local electrician can complete any electrical repair faster, safer, and more accurately than you probably can—no matter how big or small.
Certified electricians specialize in all types of residential electrical repairs, but there are top requested services that span across clientele. They often include:
- Tripped breakers
When a circuit is overloaded, it will completely shut down to prevent damage to your electrical system and home. Sometimes a tripped breaker can be easily solved by decreasing your electrical use (yes, that means you can’t plug too many things in one outlet or run big appliances at the same time) and resetting it. Other times, electricians have to determine the root cause of the electrical issue. New kitchen appliances, washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, and hot tubs are often the culprit when dealing with a tripped circuit breaker.
- Loss of power in certain rooms
We’ve all experienced the power flicker or completely go out during a storm, but what causes loss of power in specific rooms or outlets? Most of the time, this issue happens when either a receptacle, a switch, or splices fail—which means electricity cannot pass through.
- Recessed lighting
Recessed lighting is when your lights are installed directly up and into the ceiling without any visible fixtures. Whether you want to update the lighting in your home or you’re trying to fix an issue with your space’s recessed lighting, it’s best to call a professional to handle this electric home repair.
- Generator repairs
Generators are a great back up solution to have in your home to prevent power outages, but when they fail you must call your residential electrician! Neglecting an electrical repair for a generator could mean no power for hours during that next big storm.
- Hot tub repairs
Hot tubs are a great addition to your home because you can use them all year long! Electric home repairs for hot tubs often occur because it’s not heating up (and no one wants that), the control panels aren’t working correctly, or it’s tripping the GFCI breaker.
- EV charger repairs
Electrical vehicles are all the rage right now, which means the demand for EV charger installations and electrical repairs are quite high! If your EV charger isn’t working, you’re going to want to let your electrician know. Pushing off an EV charger repair might mean carpooling or taking an Uber© to work.
