Signs You Have Faulty Outlets in Your Home
All parts of your electrical system are crucial, including the outlets. It helps to know the warning signs that you have bad outlets so you can contact us for repair or replacement work from licensed electricians. Some of the warning signs of bad outlets include:
- Outlets trip circuit breakers: While a plugged-in appliance may be to blame for tripping a circuit breaker, contact an electrician if multiple appliances, plugged into the same outlet, cause a breaker to trip.
- Sparking: Frequent sparking with an outlet may indicate an electrical short that needs professional attention before it turns into a fire hazard.
- Dated or discolored outlets: If an outlet is charred or discolored, call for professional repairs right away.
- Outlets feel warm to the touch: If you notice an outlet is warmer than usual, the wiring inside is likely faulty and may create an electrical fire. Call an electrician to look into the situation.
What Are GFCI and AFCI outlets?
While standard circuit breakers offer basic protection from electric fires, GFCI and AFCI interrupters provide enhanced protection from ground faults and arcing. GFCI or ground-fault circuit interrupter outlets are designed to lower the risk of electric shock and electrocution. AFCI or arc-fault circuit interrupter outlets, on the other hand, are designed to prevent the generation of dangerous heat and electrical fires.
Both of these outlets are essential for safety and critical for any electrical system in terms of functionality.
