Flickering Lights and Other Common Electrical Issues

Do your lights flicker during when you hit the switch? Do you frequently trip the circuit breaker when you try to run appliances simultaneously? While we rely more and more on electricity for entertainment, work, and daily chores, we often don’t realize the extent of our dependence until a problem occurs. With pro installation by a certified electrician, your home should be in good shape for years to come, but over time, you may find yourself in need of professional Poughkeepsie electrical repair. Fortunately, Smart Systems offers comprehensive electrical services, and in today’s post, we’d like to review some of the most common.

  • Flickering lights. If your lights flicker when you turn them on, it is not only frustrating, but it can also be dangerous. It basically indicates that the electrical circuit that supplies that fixture is not working properly. Make sure you have a professional electrician come take a look at your flickering lights as soon as possible.
  • Electronic equipment damage. If you have sensitive electronic equipment in your home, or are concerned about surges throughout the home, then you should consider installing a whole-house surge protection. Electronic equipment damage can ruin your expensive HD television or your new desktop computer. Whole-house surge protection allows you to protect not only equipment that you plug in, but also your heating and cooling systems.
  • Fallen power line. During a thunderstorm or blizzard, the power line running to your home may endure significant stress and strain, sometimes enough to dislodge it from its connection. This can be very dangerous, and you need to make sure you hire a professional to get it back up and working.
  • Dead outlet. If you have an outlet that doesn’t supply electricity to your home, then you may need to have it swapped out by a professional. It could be a problem with the receptacle itself, or a problem with the circuit supplying it.

Electricity is dangerous. Make sure that any electrical repairs are carried out by a certified and experienced professional. Call Smart Systems today for comprehensive Poughkeepsie electrical repair services.
