It’s extremely important to make sure the electrical wires in your home are not only up-to-date but intact. We have to use electricity every day in some way or another. If the wiring is damaged, outdated, or installed incorrectly it could be incredibly dangerous. It’s also important to determine where the issue is located. If left unchecked it could result in an electrical fire or other serious damage that could endanger the household. Here are five signs there’s a fault in your wiring that need to get taken care of as soon as possible.
- Frequent Circuit Breaker Trips: The circuit breaker is the first defense when it comes to any electrical issues. It’s common for them to trip periodically if there’s an overload with an outlet, appliance, etc. Now and then it’s really a big deal. It becomes an issue when it starts tripping several times a month or even a week, especially if there’s nothing really new you’re adding in. This means something is wrong with the existing wiring or the breaker is getting over-taxed by something.
