Residential & Commercial Electrician

Problems with your Residential Electrical Systems

We rely so much on electricity in our day-to-day lives but do we know anything about how it works or what to do if there is a problem? Some electrical issues call for the skills of a Calgary electrical company and others you can fix at home by yourself. Let’s explore three common electrical problems and how to deal with them properly.

1. Electrical Surge

Electrical surges vary in length and can be the result of faulty wiring, old home appliances, lightning, or interference with power lines. If they frequently happen in your home, try unplugging any appliances that may be faulty. Otherwise, it might be a job for a Calgary electrician.

2. Circuit Breaker Tripping

Most people will experience the tripping of a circuit breaker at some point or another. Often it is high wattage appliances that cause the problem such as microwaves, hair-dryers, or space heaters. In addition, overcrowding of a single outlet or power can trip the breaker. The tripping of a breaker is a sign that it’s doing its job so this generally doesn’t require the help of an electrical contracting company.

3. High Electrical Bill

If your electricity bill is consistently high, try calling a residential electrical servicing company. They might be able to repair leaks in the hot water system or damaged circuits and wiring. You can also try unplugging devices and charges when they aren’t in use as well as replacing the faulty appliances that be the source of frequent power surges.

Services Offered By Calgary Electrical Contractors

Usually, a Calgary electrical company will offer services in addition to electrical repairs. They can also perform wiring services for a new home, panel upgrades, aluminum wiring replacement, data cabling, and other commercial or residential electrical services.
