Are your lights flickering in one room or throughout your entire house? Flickering lights could indicate anything from a defective light bulb to a more dangerous low-voltage issue requiring an electrical service upgrade. Because flickering lights could lead to a potential fire hazard due to the excess heat generated, you should call a professional electrician to assess the problem if it seems to be more than just a light bulb that needs to be replaced.

Years of training and certification separate qualified electricians from the average handyman. While you may be tempted to attempt a do-it-yourself electrical repair to save money, it’s not in your best interest. Electrical issues present significant safety risks if handled by unqualified amateurs. Professional residential electricians also possess the right equipment and tools to troubleshoot problems more efficiently. When you rely on Hoover Electric, Plumbing, Heating & Cooling to diagnose your issue, you can expect speedy service so you can resume living comfortably in practically no time.

Power outages are often responsible for tripped circuit breakers. Because your circuit breaker box contains rows and rows of switches, it can feel daunting knowing which switch should be flipped. You might get lucky and flip the right switch the first time, but this doesn’t always happen. If you don’t feel comfortable checking your circuit breaker box to determine what’s causing your issue, we’d be happy to take a look. Whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter, we’re here for you year-round.

Is your light switch hot to the touch? Your outlet could be overloaded and overheated, or you could have loose or faulty electrical wiring. Either way, this is a serious fire risk. Every year, thousands of individuals are injured by faulty electrical outlets or wiring. Ensure your home and family are protected with a professional electrical safety inspection from Hoover Electric, Plumbing, Heating & Cooling.
