Plugs Sparking

Plugs sparking in your home?

You’ll know it’s time for an upgrade if your panel is:

Too Small!

If you’re experiencing plugs sparking, frequent fuse blowouts, tripping circuits in your home or building? You may need a larger electric panel to handle the amount of power flowing into it.

Your Electrical Panel is too unsafe.

Panels that have fuses rather than circuit breakers were probably installed many years ago when homes used far less power. These units are prone to overloading and present fire and shock hazards.

Have you ever plugged something into an outlet and seen a spark? In most situations, this small blue spark is a normal event as the electrons begin to flow into the appliance's power cord. At other times, however, a spark from an electrical outlet could start a fire or severely damage the plug. Here is what you need to know about electrical outlets, why they spark and when it’s time to call in a trusted electrician. The electricity flowing through the circuits of your home is running very fast and hot. Ideally, it should flow through the circuit and back out to the main grid without much interruption. The electrical outlets in your home essentially tap into this fast-moving electrical stream and divert some of the electricity to whatever you plug into them. The electricity runs through one slot of the outlet, powers the appliance, and then escapes through the second slot of the outlet. Any spark you may notice on the 'hot' side of the outlet is usually caused by the appliance's sudden draw of amperage. Once the electrons begin to flow, the spark dissipates, much like static electricity.Don’t let various “how to” websites convince you that electrical services upgrade and repair is a do-it-yourself job.
