5 Home Electrical Wiring Warning Signs You Should Not Ignore

5 Home Electrical Wiring Warning Signs You Should Not Ignore

While the warning signs of home electrical wiring problems can be subtle, but left unchecked they can put your family at risk by increasing the likelihood of electrical shock and fires.

Here are 5 early warning signs of electrical wiring problems you should look out for.

Circuit Breaker That Keeps Tripping

This can means it is either overloaded or there is a problem with the home's wiring. It could also be caused by a faulty electrical device that is plugged into the circuit.

Dimming Lights

If the lights in the house going dim, it could be an warning sign that the wiring is faulty or that the circuit is overloaded.

Flickering Lights

This can be caused by damaged wiring or a malfunctioning electrical appliance. It can also happen if the electrical system in your house is outdated or overtaxed.

Buzzing Switches or Outlets

If electrical outlets or switches make a slight buzzing noise, it could mean that there is a problem with the appliance it's controlling or there could be loose wiring in the electrical box.

Hot Electrical Outlet or Switch Plate Covers

It's normal for some dimmer switches to feel warm to the touch, however if other outlets and switches feel hot to the touch it indicates there is an electrical wiring problem that should be checked by a licensed electrician as soon as possible.

If you experience any of these electrical wiring symptoms contact Ostrom Services for assistance.
 
The Steps to Take During a Plumbing Emergency

The Steps to Take During a Plumbing Emergency


Plumbing emergencies can range from leaking pipes and clogged drains to a faucets that won't shut off and leaking water heaters. It's important that everyone in the household know the location of the shutoff valve for every plumbing fixture and appliance, as well as the home's main shutoff valve.

Water Shutoff Valves

If a specific plumbing fixture or appliance is leaking or malfunctioning, first look for its shutoff valve and turn it clockwise to turn off the water supply just to the affected system.

The shutoff valve is usually located underneath the toilet or sink. Clothes washers will have two shutoff valves, one each for hot and cold water, often located behind the appliance

If the problem is not with a specific fixture or appliance, or you cannot locate the shutoff valve, locate the main shutoff valve to turn off the water to the entire house. The main shutoff valve will be on the inside where the main water supply pipe enters the house. Turn the valve clockwise to shut it off. If the valve is difficult to turn, keep a wrench near the valve for emergencies.

Have a plumbing emergency? Call Ostrom Services. Our professional plumbers will be there in minutes to help fix the problem.
