Are Your Lights Flickering?

If you have flickering lights, and especially if they start flickering suddenly or the flickering changes, it’s important to take note. You could save your home from serious damage and even fire. Reach out to your local electrical company for electric repair or rewiring in Salt Lake City today!

Benign Flickers

In some homes, especially older ones, all of the wiring in the home is on just a few circuits. Since there is only so much electricity available per circuit, you may experience flickering lights when you are running many electrical items on the same circuit. This should resolve when you turn some things off. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this on your own, contact a Salt Lake City electrician to take care of everything for you.

Flickering can also occur when you turn something on. Many appliances will pull a larger electrical load at first, which should resolve itself once everything gets going. Most homes share a transformer with neighbors, which means that their electrical usage could cause your lights to flicker, too. Give us a call for your rewiring in Salt Lake City today!

Dangerous Flickers

If your lights suddenly start flickering when they never have before or it becomes a lot worse all of a sudden, it’s time to call an electrician. These flickers can mean that there is an electrical problem in your home. Left unchecked, these can eventually cause fires and other damage. 

Most of the time dangerous flickers are caused by loose wires or other connections. Loose switches can also cause flickering, though that is usually less dangerous. Either way, though, you will need help from a professional Salt Lake City electrician to locate and fix the problem.
