There’s no doubt that electronic devices and electrical products are indispensable to our everyday life. Over time, electrical products have progressed following an immense revolution in technology.

Safety standards for these electronics have advanced as well; manufacturers are increasingly adhering to the mandatory requirement to get these products and devices certified before releasing them to the market. It seems almost safe to say that the products are entirely harmless to humans and the environment.

But it’s not true. As much as these devices are built in the best way possible, other factors like faulty electrical wiring in your home or office can render electric gadgets a hazard to you and your property. You may need an electric repair service.

When should you contact an electrician?

Before you move into a building is the best time to ensure electrical safety. You can get a certified electrician to test the building for any electrical defects. This will also help minimize future disruptions to your home or business.

  • If your socket, extension, or adapter sparks when you switch it on or plug into it, this is a sign of a short circuit in your wiring. A short circuit can also cause a burning odor or even go as far as causing an electric fire. That spark is a red flag to your safety, and immediate professional assistance is recommended. When this happens, avoid using that outlet; switch it off and unplug it to avoid melting the plugins.
  • If a bulb has blown out, you can change it in a jiffy. If one of your light switches isn’t working or your bulbs aren’t lighting when turned on, you will want to contact an electrician immediately. If the bulb holder continuously burn-out bulbs, get electrical assistance. Also, if the bulbs are constantly flickering, it means that there’s a faulty electrical device in the building.

If you experience any of the issues mentioned above or any other out-of-the-ordinary electrical reactions (like shocks when handling sockets), it is recommended that you contact a certified electrician quickly. Luckily, the knowledgeable technicians from Airco Service are here to offer you electric repair service on a 24/7 basis. Don’t stay in the dark or risk life-threatening situations.
