Top Electrical Issues
This happens when a light fixture bulb has a higher wattage than the fixture it is designed for. This poses a serious danger because the bulb’s heat can melt or scorch the socket, which increases the risk of sparks jumping through the air from one wire to the next. Even after the bulb has been removed, damage to the socket and wires remain.
- Few Outlets:
If a home doesn’t have very many outlets, there is heavy reliance on extension cords, power strips, and the few outlets there are. While this is not a code violation and the danger is minimal, the extension cords can overheat and ignite a fire.
- Unprotected Junction Box:
A junction box houses where the wires connect. The danger is minimal as long as wires are not tampered with or damaged. It is important to have a cover installed over this box.
- Flickering Lights Due to Wind:
Wind can cause outdoor cables to move. When those cables are a direct powerline into the house, they pose a high level of danger because the frayed wiring might arc and result in a fire.
- Wires have been Backstabbed:
This most often occurs on wires that have been pushed in the back and come loose. This is dangerous because wires can cause a receptacle or stop working altogether. Worst case scenario, they start a fire.
