When Are The Two Most Common Reasons You Should Call A Residential Electrician?
As more and more people catch the DIY bug, it can be tempting to want to do everything possible yourself, and in many instances, this can lead to homeowners attempting to complete their own electrical work or repairs.
The key is understanding your limitations and knowing which repair and maintenance chores you can complete and which are best left to the professionals.
Don’t Take Any Unnecessary Risks Using A Residential Electrician Makes Sense
While it is perfectly safe for most people to change a lightbulb or replace a plug, the vast majority of electrical work should involve calling a residential electrician rather than trying to attempt the work yourself. What are the signs that you should look out for so that you know it’s time to call in the professionals?
1. The Trip Is Constantly Being Triggered, Or Your Fuses Are Constantly Blowing
One of the first signals that you may have an electrical issue requiring the services of a professional electrician is when the electricity in the house continues to trip or you constantly have to replace fuses as they blow. As the amount of electronic devices in our homes continues to increase, older electrical installations may be unable to cope with the amount of electricity flowing through the circuits.
This could also indicate that some of your circuits are defective and need to be repaired or replaced. If you are not a qualified electrician, then trying to troubleshoot could not only cause issues, your lack of knowledge could, at best, cause damage to the circuit board and, in the worst case scenario, cause the house to go on fire.
2. You Are Running Out of Plug Sockets
At Moreheat, one of the most common reasons our customers contact us is that they need more sockets. With the proliferation of mobile phones, iPads, Ring doorbells and every other part of modern-day life, the need for plug sockets is never-ending. Firstly there is the risk of overloading your sockets with endless extension leads; then, running too much current through your sockets is easy. The significant risk is that this could potentially lead to a fire developing or other equally catastrophic problems.
The solution to this problem is to invest in more outlets. This is not a job for an amateur, as it requires the expertise and knowledge of a residential electrician. At Moreheat, we can fit new plug sockets in whatever location around the home that suits you whilst installing additional circuit breakers simultaneously to ensure everything runs smoothly and without issue.
These are the two main reasons why you should call the team at Moreheat, although regardless of the electrical problems you may be facing, feel free to call us on 01392 927761 for advice or to obtain a free no-obligation quotation for any work that may need.
