Signs Your Outlet Needs to Be Repaired
Your outlet is a crucial part of your home's electrical system, and it's important to keep it in good shape. However, sometimes your outlet may need some repairs. There are a few signs to look out for that can indicate it is time for your outlet to be repaired.
Signs your outlet needs repair include:
- Discolored or melted plastic: This can occur due to excess heat, short circuiting, and damaged wires. Be sure to call our electricians to repair your outlet before conditions worsen.
- Smoke or sparks: If you’re noticing smoke or sparks, this could be a sign of water damage or a short circuit. Be sure to turn off the flow of electricity to the outlet(s) and call for an electrician to investigate this problem.

How to Know When Your Switch Needs to Be Replaced
As with any piece of equipment, switches too will eventually need to be replaced over time. Knowing when it's time to replace a switch is essential to prevent any inconvenience or further damage.
Signs that it may be time to replace your switch include:
- Buzzing or clicking noises: If you hear buzzing, clicking, or any other strange sounds from your switch, it may be time to replace it. The sound may be due to an electrical charge jumping between the interior of the switch rather than flowing from one piece to another. Call our electricians for service as this can become a fire hazard.
- Warmth: If your light switch is warm or hot to the touch, this can be a sign of loose wiring or a short circuit. Contact our team for an inspection.
- Changes in resistance: When you flip your switch, there sound be a slight resistance. However, if it loses its normal resistance or becomes too difficult to flip, this is a sign it needs to be replaced.
Be sure to keep an eye out for these signs to be sure your switches are functioning correctly and to avoid any further complications. When you notice a problem, don’t hesitate to call for our switch services in South Shore. Our electricians will thoroughly investigate your issue and promptly replace your switch to have it functioning normally once again.
