Is Your Wiring Faulty?
Over time, things can go wrong with any electrical system. It’s part of the nature of wiring: connections break down and wires deteriorate. But what if the problem that develops is because of something that happened when the electrical system was installed, something you didn’t have any control over? There’s nothing so treacherous to the safety of your home as faulty wiring. Mistakes in the initial wiring of your home can take years to finally finally fail or show the signs of imperfection and can lead to serious safety hazards and property damage. If you suspect faulty wiring, don’t ignore these warning signs - reach out to a Dallas wiring repair expert from our team right away. A licensed electrician can help you find the problem areas in your wiring and repair them.
Common Signs Of Faulty Wiring Include:
If your wiring doesn’t work, it’s probably faulty. This is the most obvious sign and is usually caught in newer homes before it has a chance to become more serious. However, that’s not always the case if you live in a house with previous owners, especially if only part of the wiring is faulty. If one outlet in a particular room has never worked, it’s probably the result of poor wiring or installation.
Your lights flicker. This happens because the connections between the wires and devices are poor or in the process of breaking down. The flickering comes from voltage spikes as the current tries to overcome the poor connection. This can lead to arc faults and is a potential fire hazard.
Your wiring is stapled on the outside of the wall. Even if there doesn’t appear to be any damage to the wire, this still qualifies as faulty wiring. This is because wiring should never be exposed on the outside of a wall, as it’s subject to damage when installed like this. If for some reason wiring must be outside of a wall, it must be placed inside an approved conduit to protect it.
You smell burning or melting plastic. Wires that are carrying too much current or have poor connections tend to heat up. This melts the plastic shielding all wires are coated in. This plastic emits toxic gas when it melts, which has a very distinct scent. If you smell this in your home and can’t identify a source, you should call a licensed electrician immediately. If discovered and dealt with quickly, this can prevent your next call from being to the fire department.
Your outlets and switches feel hot to the touch. A switch or outlet properly rated to handle the current going through it should not heat up. If they do, it’s a sign that they may be improperly wired, or that the outlet or switch itself is faulty, and should be replaced as soon as possible.
