Common Electrical Problems & Professional Solutions

There are a variety of common electrical problems that homeowners experience. If unchecked, they can quickly grow into severe issues that can threaten the lifespan of your electrical system as well as your safety. Common electrical problems in your household can include:

  • Loose wiring and outlets. Over time, wiring and outlets can experience damage or become loose due to improper installation, renovations, or other arrangements.
  • Ungrounded outlets. These have two-prong plug-ins instead of three and can limit how safely electrical currents travel. Using an adapter instead of replacing the ungrounded outlet can risk frying your devices and creating hot outlets.
  • Over-lamping. Over-laming is when the lightbulb used in a lighting fixture has a higher wattage than the fixture can handle.
  • Faulty switches. Loose wiring and arc faulting can cause faulty switches, both of which can be fire hazards.
  • Overwired panels. When electrical currents are pushed through more circuits than the panel can handle, power surges, outages and overheating can occur.

Bradley Mechanical has seen and repaired just about every electrical issue that can happen for over fifty years. We treat our clients like family, and we don’t let family members live in risky conditions. Our team will assess all aspects of your system to solve these electrical problems and get them repaired as soon as possible.
