Basic Electrical Troubleshooting Tips

There’s nothing like the frustration of flipping a switch and having nothing happen—or having lights or outlets suddenly stop working and being unable to figure out why.

3 Troubleshooting Steps Before Calling Your Local Electricians

Complete these steps before calling in the experts.

1. Check your circuit breaker panel: Sometimes, a simple tripped breaker can cause multiple electrical issues. However, if resetting the breaker doesn’t resolve the problem, there may be a larger underlying issue that requires professional attention.

2. Look for common culprits: Faulty or outdated wiring, overloaded circuits, or loose connections can lead to intermittent electrical problems. Inspect your outlets, switches, and visible wiring for any signs of damage or loose connections. However, please exercise caution and avoid handling any exposed wires yourself.

3. Keep a record of the issues. Jot down the frequency, duration, and specific details of the electrical problems you are experiencing. This information will be helpful for our electricians when they assess your situation.
