Signs of Bad Electrical Wiring

Monday, August 27th, 2018

wiringElectricity is one of those things that is pretty easy to take for granted in this day and age. After all, we’ve had electricity available to us in our homes throughout our lives. It’s just always there. And that’s a great thing. Forgetting about the dangers that electricity can pose just because it is such a regular part of our everyday lives, however, is not a great thing. In fact, that mindset can actually lead to some dangerous situations.

Today, we want to talk about some warning signs that you may notice if your electrical wiring is problematic. Are all of these warning signs indicative of an emergency situation? Of course not. Should the resolution of any and all problems with your electrical system and wiring be treated as a top priority, though? You betcha. We are not alarmists here, but the fact of the matter is that compromised wiring is a fire hazard. So look out for these signs of trouble with electrical wiring in Acworth, NH. (more…)

Common Causes of Southern Vermont Electrical Problems

Monday, May 13th, 2013

Your electrical system allows you to harness the power of appliances and gadgets that require electricity by providing a safe and comprehensive network of circuitry and receptacles. But as with any aspect of our home, our electrical systems may need repair and professional service at some point. It’s critical that you find a good electrician to work on your home. Electricity can be dangerous, so make sure that you call the pros at HB Energy to solve your Southern Vermont electrical problems.

Let’s take a look at some common causes of such problems in your home.

  • Faulty connection: Your home’s electrical wiring works by virtue of a circuit, and this circuit depends on the integrity of its connections. If one of your wires fails, either due to heat or physical damage, then this can cause a faulty connection. For example, if you have any flickering lights in your home, this is often the consequence of a wiring issue.
  • Moisture: Water and electricity don’t mix, as well all know. But less obvious is the impact of moisture and humidity on your home electrical system. While most electrical materials are well-insulated to protect against the risk of invasive moisture, and GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters) can detect water and shut themselves off to prevent shorting the entire system, you need to make sure that your home electrical system is safe from any encroaching moisture or water.
  • Improper installation: Unfortunately, one of the common causes of electrical problems in the home is because of improper installation. Remember, only hire a certified and reputable electrician to perform work on your home.

If you’re having an issue with your electrical system in Southern Vermont, then make sure you give HB Energy a call today.
