Common Electrical Repairs

When you lose electricity, simple daily tasks become difficult. Dodson Electric works tirelessly to provide solutions that last. 

Common electrical problems include:

  • Circuit breaker replacement
  • Rewiring
  • Flickering lights
  • Overloaded circuits

8 Signs You May Have a Problem with Your Electrical Wiring

Electrical wiring issues can pose significant safety hazards, including the risk of fire or electric shock. Recognizing the signs of wiring problems early can help prevent potential disasters. Here are eight signs that you may have a problem with your electrical wiring:

  • Frequent Circuit Breaker Trips: If your circuit breaker trips often, it may indicate an overloaded circuit or faulty wiring.
  • Flickering or Dimming Lights: Lights that flicker or dim when you use an appliance could point to an overloaded circuit or loose wiring connections.
  • Buzzing or Crackling Sounds: Buzzing or crackling sounds from outlets, switches, or the electrical panel can signal loose connections or faulty wiring.
  • Burning Smell or Scorch Marks: A burning smell or scorch marks near outlets, switches, or electrical panels suggest an electrical issue that needs immediate attention.
  • Warm or Hot Outlets/Switches: Outlets or switches that feel warm or hot to the touch may indicate an overloaded circuit or faulty wiring.
  • Frequent Light Bulb Burnouts: If your light bulbs burn out more often than usual, it might be due to poor wiring, loose connections, or an overloaded circuit.
  • Sparking Outlets or Switches: Sparking from outlets or switches can be caused by faulty wiring, loose connections, or an overloaded circuit and needs urgent attention.
  • Outdated or Damaged Wiring: Older wiring, like knob-and-tube or aluminum, is more susceptible to wear and tear. Visible signs of wear, such as frayed wires or damaged insulation, should be replaced.

How can I tell if my circuit breaker needs to be replaced?

Circuits are used to delegate the power in your home to designated areas. Your circuit breakers trip to prevent too much voltage from entering your system and causing damage. If you’re noticing breakers that are constantly tripping, it may be time for a replacement.

When should my house be rewired?

If your house is over 40 years old, you may have outdated wiring that is no longer up to code or safe. Your current electrical may not be meeting your power needs if you use extension cords in most outlets. 

Trust our professionals for high-quality electrical repairs in Fort Worth that keep your building safe.

How do I fix flickering lights?

Double-check that your lightbulb is correctly tightened. If this doesn’t stop the flickering, it may be caused by frayed wires loosening the connection to cause shorts. We’ll find the source of the flickering and protect your home from a potential fire.

How do I know if my circuits are overloaded?

If you use appliances with wattage that’s higher than your circuit breaker can handle, it will cause unnecessary damage to your wires. Installing more outlets can help manage your excessive wattage, or we can upgrade your electrical panel to better fit your needs.

Preventing Electrical Problems

It’s easy to ignore your electrical system until it stops working. A problem with your electrical components can be dangerous if not handled by a professional. Dodson Electric stays up to date with technology and protocols to keep you and our technicians safe.

Tips to avoid electrical problems in your home:

  • Always check your cords before use and never use a damaged or frayed cord
  • Don’t overload plugs or extension cords
  • Only use the correct wattage for light fixtures
  • Don’t try DIY repairs

Ways You Can Protect Your Home From Electrical Damage

Damaged or exposed wire puts your space at risk for electrical fires. Before use, examine your cords for damage. Never hide cables under carpets or behind furniture. It’s common for older homes to lack enough outlets for you and your family. This is a sign you need to upgrade your electrical panel for safe operation. 

Using the wrong wattage in a lamp is a common cause of an electrical fire. Don’t overload the wattage recommended on the light fixture. Without proper knowledge of DIY, electrical repairs are dangerous and can cost more money than they save. Don’t put yourself or your home at risk when you can trust the pros at Dodson Electric for expert electrical repair in Fort Worth.
