Three Signs That Mean You Should Call Us!

Regardless of how much of a “do-it-yourselfer” you may be, there are some areas of home repair you should leave to the pros. One of those areas is electrical. Amateur electric repair jobs pose the danger of electrocution or fire, and can also violate local electrical codes.

Fortunately, our skilled residential electricians at Gary Houston Electric Company have the training and the tools to remedy your electrical woes quickly and safely!

Here are three signs that it’s time to call in a pro to investigate:

    1. Flickering lights: If your lights flicker, pulse, or cycle between a little too bright and a little too dim, you’re probably experiencing power surges. This often happens when your appliances exceed your home’s ability to supply them with adequate current.. This can lead to premature failure of your expensive home appliances, or worse.
    2. Continually tripped circuit breakers: A tripped breaker usually happens when you plug in a device that requires more power than an outlet can provide. But if the breakers start tripping on a regular basis, it could suggest that you have more serious problems.
    3. Warm or sparking outlets and switches: A common electrical repair is fixing faulty wiring inside light switches and outlets. This kind of bad wiring has the potential to cause electrical fires. If you notice that light switches are warm to the touch, if outlets are sparking, or if you hear a sizzling sound coming from inside a switch or an outlet, you should contact a licensed electrician immediately.

Electrical repairs can’t be put off indefinitely without potentially lethal consequences! Call us at 501-375-8330 or contact us online at this link if you experience any of these three warning signs and we’ll dispatch a residential electrical repair tech to check out the problem.
