Signs of Electrical Problems in the Home
If you know the symptoms and realize the electrical problem before it gets worse, it can help you a great deal to make repairs to prevent a damage or a dangerous situation which might lead to property damage or electrocution.

This is nothing new but is out of the knowledge of someone who is not an expert in this field. These circuit breakers are designed in such a way that it is bound to trip when a circuit is overloaded. The breaker prevents wires from starting a fire or from overheating. There are high chances of these breakers tripping when they have been in use for quite a long time.

It is advisable to leave this type of work to an experienced professional. Do not replace a fuse or a circuit breaker with a higher rated one as it can cause fire or overheating.
Improper electrical wiring or a ground fault in the appliance would be the cause if you feel a tingle or a mild shock when you touch an appliance. After crossing a carpeted surface, if you notice a shock, it might be from static, which is quite common in winter and is not a huge cause for concern. However, never leave this situation unattended as you would not want to risk such a situation becoming worse.
Hot ceiling fixtures
It is not necessary that all fixtures are well insulated, so it is better to check the area around your ceiling for warmth. Excess heat build-up can also pose a fire hazard. Switching a light emitting diode or a compact fluorescent light bulbs provides one solution, as these bulbs do not produce so much heat as incandescent bulbs.
Flickering lights are a very usual problem these days but if replacing the bulb does not solve the problem then it is better to consult a residential electrician services. It might be that the connections to the fixture or the electrical wiring of your home in the circuit box may be loose. This type of problem definitely needs a professional diagnosis.
Burning sparks or odor
Turn the power off at the electrical panel, if you smell a burning odor coming from any switch. Immediately contact the residential electrician services for appropriate repairs. It can also be a faulty device, wiring or an overload problem.
