    Spooky Electrical Problems In Your Home and What To Do?

    It is spooky season, after all. Electrical problems, no matter how big or small, can be scary. It’s important to know what these problems look like and what you can do to stay safe and comfortable. Here are some common spooky electrical problems in your home and what to do about them.

    1. Humming or Buzzing Outlets

    Are your outlets or switches making a humming sound? This could mean you have a loose wire. However, if it’s more of a buzzing sound, then it might mean your outlet is overloaded or improperly grounded. While not a ghost, it can still be concerning and should be checked out by a professional electrician.

    2. Humming Electrical Panel

    When you hear spooky noises coming from your electrical panel, it’s never a good sign. Humming noises from behind the panel, specifically, usually mean there’s a problem with your breaker. This could be due to a consistently overloaded circuit. Make sure you aren’t overloading circuits to avoid this problem. If this problem persists, always contact an electrician to further inspect your panel.

    3. Buzzing Lights and Fixtures

    If your lights and fixtures are buzzing, it might be due to electrical shorts or loose fixtures. It could also mean that your light bulb is about to burn out, or the voltage being applied to it is too high. First, try swapping out the bulb with a new one to see if that resolves the issues. Consider replacing them with LEDs because they’re more energy efficient and last longer. You should also make sure to use the right bulb with the correct wattage. If this doesn’t resolve the problem, contact an electrician to take a look at your lights and make sure there isn’t a hidden electrical problem that needs attention.

    4. Buzzing Appliances

    Many appliances make noses when they operate, or when they first kick on. But any sudden, unusual and loud changes shouldn’t be ignored. This could indicate a problem that needs your immediate attention. If you notice an appliance buzzing suddenly, it could mean you have a faulty electrical socket which will need to be inspected by a professional electrician.
