Troubleshooting Common Household Electrical Problems

Electrical problems can literally bring our lives to a standstill especially when we were least expecting the problems. Of course the only sane thing to do is call for help from one of your trusted local electricians. But, instead of just sitting pretty as you wait for the help to arrive, you can do some of the troubleshooting yourself such that by the time your electrician is arriving, you have a pretty good idea of where the problem came from.

This doesn’t mean you have to go all pro like opening all the switches and other parts of your electrical system as this can turn out very dangerous for you. Leave this part to the professional electricians who are well trained to deal with such matters.

Here are some tips for easy troubleshooting at home.

• Electrical outlets not working

The first thing to do is to first check the nearby outlets to see if they are still working or not. This will help you determine the extent of the problem. If nothing is working, you may either have lost power to your house or something could have tripped your electrical system.

You can locate your electrical panel to see if there is a switch that’s off. If indeed that is the case, simply turn it on and your outlets will be working again. If however, that’s not the case, it is wise to call for help. Electricians will be in a position to tell what’s going on and fix the problem from where you left off.




• Flickering lights

The first thing to do is to check whether your bulb has the recommended watts for the socket or whether the bulb is screwed in all the way into the socket. Note that if you are using the wrong wattage, this cud easily lead to an electrical fire. If everything appears to be as it should be, try fixing another bulb and see if the problem is going to persist.

If the flickering stops, this could either mean that the bulb was faulty or even old. However, if the problem persist, this is an indication that there is a problem with your wiring with the main problem being with either the cord or the outlet.

In any case, a call to Brisbane electrical services will come in handy and help you fix the problem as soon as possible. You should have at least three electricians’ numbers such that in case one is not available, you can still reach the one of the other two.
