That inner do-it-yourself attitude can help you accomplish a lot around the house without spending a lot of extra money. However, not every job can be taken care of with a pair of pliers and a couple of screwdrivers. There are times when you actually need a professional who has been trained to handle specific things, like electricity. Electricity is dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. It is never a good idea to try and find out if you know how to handle electricity by employing the trial by fire method. Instead, call an electrician. Glendale residents can trust H Electric to take care of any of those little problems around the house you are not sure you can handle. The following reasons are just some of the things that will require the professional service of an electrician.
*Burning wire smells or visible smoke from around an outlet. Crackling noises that indicate frying or burning wires indicate there is a serious problem. Turn off the power and call an electrician immediately.
*Flickering lights that are not made better when a bulb is changed out. This may be a faulty fixture or a wire shorting out. Do not attempt to fix it yourself, call an electrician. Burbank homeowners do not want to risk an electrical fire by putting off problems of this nature.
*Breakers that trip frequently for no apparent reason will likely need to be changed out or upgraded. You may need an electric panel upgrade. This can be evaluated by having an electrical safety inspection completed.
*When you are installing a new air conditioner or hot tub, you will need a dedicated breaker. This will have to meet county code requirements, which will typically require an electrician.
If you have a problem you are not sure you should handle on your own, give H Electric a call and we would be happy to help you.
