It’s shocking, but many Roanoke homeowners forget the importance of having their electrical systems inspected until it’s too late. Electricity is just one of those things it’s easy to take for granted — until you flip a switch and nothing happens or, even worse, there’s a pop, some smoke, and the lights go out.
Homeowners should watch out for a few warning signs of problems with home electrical systems. If your lights flicker, it can mean there is a faulty switch or a loose connection. There is also the potential for faulty wiring, which can end up causing significant damage. Overheated wiring is one of the leading causes of house fires, posing great risk to your home and family.
If your circuit breaker keeps tripping, it can mean that you’ve plugged in too many devices or are using too many appliances on the same circuit. It can also be caused by short circuits in the system. This could lead to fires or extensive damage to wiring and appliances.
