“Theo had to remove some drywall to fix our issue, but left it so that we would be able to easily patch it. He even explained how to do it!” - Brandon F.
Managing electricity in a home can be challenging, especially when things go wrong. While some electrical issues seem not to be a cause for concern, many problems warrant an immediate call to a professional electrician. Homeowners should be aware of the signs of an electrical problem so they can contact an expert as soon as possible for repairs.
There are several signs that indicate electrical repairs are needed, including:
- Sparking appliance or circuit breaker
- Flickering lights
- Damaged wires in an electrical panel
- Smoking or burning smells
- Hot switch plate or outlet
- Power is inconsistent
- Breakers trip frequently
- Buzzing in the walls
- Light switches that don’t turn anything on
- Outlets or switches cause a shock
Most electrical issues can be fixed quickly and easily if caught early. However, because working with electricity can be complicated and dangerous, it’s always best to leave repairs to a licensed electrician with years of experience.

Flickering lights are sometimes due to harmless causes, such as a bad bulb or a bulb that’s loose in its socket. These types of issues can be fixed simply by replacing the bulb or tightening the bulb inside its socket. Homeowners are usually able to take care of these fixes on their own, but they should be careful to turn off the light switch to prevent burning or electric shock. If multiple lights are flickering in the same area of the house, it’s likely a problem with the circuit. Since this problem can be dangerous if left unaddressed, it’s best to call an electrician as soon as possible to diagnose the issue and provide the right repair.
If the lights flicker when large appliances power on, it could be due to an insufficient power supply. An electrician can inspect the system and determine if it’s time for an electrical service upgrade. In the case that flickering lights are not associated with large appliances turning on and the issue is not contained in one specific area but occurs all over the house, it could be a sign of a larger problem in the electrical system, such as a loose connection or bad wiring. Because these types of issues can lead to various hazards, an electrician should be contacted right away for an inspection.
