Electric shocks “leaking” from your appliances?

Many warning signs of faulty electrical wiring begin as frustrating but mild problems, like resetting the GFCI breaker in your bathroom every time you use the plug or having to replace light bulbs too frequently. Repairing these issues while they’re at this level is ideal.

At Rytec Electric, all of our electrical contractors are licensed and have several years of on-the-job experience. We’ll narrow down what’s happening with your electrical system and outline the next steps to solve them. And, we’ll get it done right the first time – guaranteed.

Frequently Asked Questions

When am I having an electrical emergency?

Some signs of an electrical emergency include:

  • Many or all of your lights are flickering, or you have flickering lights and malfunctioning appliances and electronics.
  • You can smell burning plastic – a sign that wires are burning. (Or, you might smell something like fish – that means your wires are going to start burning soon or have just begun burning.)
  • You can hear buzzing in rooms of your home that have no clear source.
  • None of your home’s outlets are working.
  • You have an overheated service panel, or overheated switches and outlets.
  • You have brown or black switches and outlets, or sparks or smoke coming from your switches and outlets.

Generally, these are signs of old or faulty wiring, a burning electrical fire, a lack of power capacity for your home’s needs, and more.

What are common electrical problems?

Just a few common electrical problems include:

  • Dim or flickering lights
  • Hot light switches or outlets
  • Dead or loose outlets
  • Electrical shocks from appliances or switches

These mainly indicate an underlying problem with your electrical system, like old wiring or not enough power capacity, and should be addressed by a professional. They aren’t always an immediate emergency, but they should generally be repaired quickly.

Can I fix an electrical problem myself?

There are few, if any, cases in which we recommend fixing an electrical problem yourself due to the complex nature of electrical systems. No harm may come to you, but you might repair something poorly and increase the chance of an electrical fire or even cause issues with your homeowner’s insurance.

Should my electrical panel be humming?

It’s normal for your electrical panel to hum. However, it’s not normal for your electrical panel to make crackling, sizzling, buzzing, or popping noises. These sounds indicate something serious is wrong, like loose or damaged wires or a broken circuit breaker, and you should call a professional to inspect it.

Should circuit breakers on my service panel be hot?

The circuit breakers on your service panel shouldn’t be hot. The heat makes them a fire hazard, so you should call a professional as soon as possible. Some reasons for circuit breakers’ warmth include them being:

  • Overloaded with power
  • Inadequate for use
  • Defective
  • Incorrectly installed
