Springtime is the Right Time for Your Next Inspection

Springtime is the Right Time for Your Next Inspection

March 13, 2019

Now that winter is ending, and spring weather is upon us, it’s time for some spring cleaning and home maintenance. However, many homeowners neglect their electrical needs. Ignoring issues with wiring, circuits and other electrical components can lead to harsh consequences, like fires, property damage and personal injury. An annual electrical inspection can help reduce these kinds of problems, since you’ll be made aware of any unforeseen trouble and correct the issue before it becomes severe. At MR. Electric of Dallas, we enjoy helping our local residential and commercial clients achieve high quality, reliable and efficient energy. If you’re ready to have the same great results for your North Texas home, here is some more information that can help keep your electricity safe this Spring and all year long. 

Why is Spring a Great Time for an Electrical Inspection? 

Over the winter, many things can go wrong with your electrical system. Freezing temperatures and fluctuations in weather conditions can become problematic for overburdened wiring. In addition, the winter time can put heavy demands on your system. Whether you’ve needed to run your heating at full force to stay warm, or you piled on the Christmas decorations in December, the Spring season gives homeowners a chance to refresh and restore their electrical system. 

Look for These Warning Signs 

While it’s recommended to schedule a professional electrical inspection at least once per year, you may need to have another visit from a certified electrician under certain circumstances. If you notice any major signals, it’s best not to wait six months to address the problem. Here are a few of the most common red flags that homeowners should look out for:

  • Buzzing sounds around outlets. 
  • Frequently tripped breakers. 
  • Discoloration around plugs and outlets. 
  • Strange electrical smells. 
  • Signs of a rodent infestation.
  • Switches randomly refusing to turn on. 

If you’re experiencing one or more of these problems, it’s best to schedule an appointment for an electrical inspection as soon as possible, regardless of the season. 

The Importance of Hiring a Certified Electrician for Your Electrical Maintenance

While some home maintenance tasks can be easily performed by homeowners, electrical work can be extremely complicated and dangerous. Exposure to high voltage can cause electrocution and severe personal injury. In addition, incorrect repairs or replacements can encourage fires and may damage expensive appliances and electronics. If you suspect that there’s an issue, be sure to hire an experienced and licensed electrician who can accurately diagnose and repair the cause of your trouble.
