Electric Shock

A clear sign of an electric shock is when you touch an electric outlet or switch and feel a jolt. This could mean outdated or loose wiring in a switch or outlet. Although a small electric shock may not seem dangerous in the moment, unattended this faulty connection can cause fire.

Damaged Wiring

Damaged wiring can have visible marks or frayed ends. This can be the cause of rodents, or simply old wiring that should have been replaced. Because this is a serious fire hazard, damaged or exposed wires should be replaced by an electrician right away.

Unusual Sounds

Buzzing is a sign that something is faulty. Usually, an electrical current doesn’t produce a sound that is audible to the human ears. When the prong is loose, when a wire is faulty, or some other problems exist, the current might jump and create a buzzing noise. Call the best residential electrician Little Rock has to offer and avoid undue stress on the system that might result in a bigger issue.

Unusual smells

There should not be any smell of smoke, or burning near outlets or electrical panels. If you smell smoke, or any other odd odors then faulty wires have already begun to cause fire damage. It is important not to use that outlet until a professional has checked it out.

Flickering Lights

Flickering lights are caused by low-quality, incompatible wiring, and faulty or old connections. If your lights dim as you plug in an appliance, then that could mean that your electric current is not flowing correctly. Flickering or buzzing lights can also be caused by a lose light bulb. Check your lightbulbs and see if it works. If it does not solve the problem, call the Little Rock electricians. They will diagnose the leading cause and be able to professionally fix the issue for you.
