Signs You Need An Electrician
There are several signs you may need to call Doug’s electricians.
Buzzing: While electricity does a million things, it's supposed to do so silently. If you can hear buzzing from an electrical appliance contact the manufacturer, but if it's coming from your lights or electrical panel contact us today.
Flickering lights: If your electrical grid is spread too thin, flickering lights will be the first indication that you might want to upgrade your electrical panel.
A power strip attached to another: If you're considering attaching a power brick to another then you don't have the outlets you need. Give us a call and we'll provide you with all the electrical outlets you need to avoid this fire hazard.
Outlets that are warm to the touch: Like the buzzing sound, electricity isn't supposed to get hot if everything is wired correctly. If you're noticing that it's a little bit warm it's better to be safe than sorry.
Rust on your electrical panel: If there is any rusting going on then you have water where there shouldn't be any and you should get in touch with our electrician team right away.
