Do you feel like you’re paying too much on power bills? If yes, why not look for a professional electrician to check your property electrical circuit?
Below are signs that suggest you might need to call licensed electricians to check your property:
When you turn off your lights as you go to bed, can you feel the heat coming from the switch? This can be a sign of electrical overload, a consequence of old, faulty or poorly installed switches, and is a serious fire risk.
Old powerpoints often have a build-up of dust, grime, or grease, but if you can’t wipe the surface clean, this discolouration could instead be charring or soot - another sign of dangerous overheating.
Circuit breakers are designed to protect your electrical system from overload, and an occasional trip simply shows that they are doing their job. But if these trips become regular, it points to an issue with your system that needs immediate attention.
Keep an eye out for dim or flickering lights. If the inconsistency is confined to one room, you could just have a faulty bulb. If they flicker when you turn something energy-intensive on, like an air conditioner, then there may not be a reason to worry. But if they regularly flicker throughout your home, it could be a sign of a failing electrical system.
Along with reduced fire risk, the prime reason to maintain your energy system is energy efficiency. If your power bills are getting higher and higher, an upgrade could bring them down instantly.
