electrician tequesta fl | Jupiter-Tequesta Air Conditioning, Plumbing & ElectricAutumn is the perfect season to tackle indoor home improvement projects. Do you have any home electrical problems that you’ve been putting off all year long? Here are a few you’ll want to finally tackle.

Common Home Electrical Problems:

  • Dead Outlets – Do you have a dead outlet in your bathroom, garage or kitchen? Try resetting your breakers or GFCIs.
  • Flickering Lights – Aside from being annoying, flickering lights when it’s windy can be dangerous if they are due to frayed wiring. Your electric utility may be able to replace the weatherhead.
  • Not Enough Outlets – Relying on extension cords and power strips? Add a few more outlets to your home! This is a simple electrical fix that adds convenience to your home.
  • Aluminum Wiring – Aluminum wiring is common in older homes build in the 60s and 70s, however, aluminum corrodes and connections loosen – creating a fire risk. Retrofit your home with copper wires that are safer for your home and your family.
  • High Electric Bills – If your electric bill is a bit higher than normal, have your electrical and plumbing systems checked out for potential problem areas. Something unexpected, like a leaking hot water pipe, can be the reason behind your high bill.
  • Light Bulbs Run Dim – If you notice that some light bulbs in your house are dimmer than others, it may be due to a bad main neutral connection.
