At worst, the can turn into a serious safety hazard. Our Santa Barbara electrical repair technicians have over 30 years of experience giving property owners the peace of mind and quality service they deserve.
Signs That Electrical Repair Is Needed
When damage to an electrical system is spotted early, it's more likely that a property owner can mitigate the costs of fixing that damage. Common signs that repair work is needed include the following:
While occasional flickering may not be a cause for immediate concern, persistent or frequent flickering could indicate an underlying issue that calls for professional attention by our team.
If sparks are noticed when plugging in or unplugging an appliance, it is crucial to address the issue promptly. Sparks can pose a significant fire hazard and may result in electrical shocks if left unresolved.
Strange Smells & Noises
Another indicator of potential electrical issues is the presence of strange smells or noises originating from electrical outlets, switches, or appliances. Unusual odors like burning plastic or a smoky scent may suggest overheating wires or electrical components.
Similarly, buzzing, crackling, or popping sounds can also indicate electrical problems. These signs should not be ignored, as they can signify dangerous electrical faults that require immediate attention.
Ignoring any of these signs could potentially lead to more serious electrical problems or even electrical fires. Prompt action can prevent further damage, and hazards, and allow for the continued reliable operation of your electrical system.
