Repair Flickering Lights

By Springdale Electrician,

 

When the lights are flickering, panic sets in. Is it an earthquake? Is there an electrical panel problem? How much does it cost to repair flickering lights? Mister Sparky understands your concerns and we’re going to address them on the blog to put you at ease. We’ll talk about different causes of flickering lights before educating you about different situations that would require our emergency electrician services.

A few causes of flickering lights include bad light bulbs, bad electrical connections between bulbs and sockets, large power-sucking appliances, loose conductors in the electrical panel, or problems with your electric company. We realize that’s a lot to worry about, but again, that’s why we’re writing this blog for you.

First, it’s inevitable that light bulbs will eventually burn out. If a single light bulb is flickering, try replacing it with a new one. If the newly installed light bulb is still flickering, you may have a circuit breaker problem. In this case, call Mister Sparky to come out for a complete circuit diagnosis. A faulty circuit with loose hot or neutral conductors is nothing to leave alone, as it can be dangerous. Please make sure and call to get us out to your home. After the diagnosis, our licensed electricians will find the problem and fix it only if you want the work done.

Appliances that use lots of electricity also lead to flickering lights. Many homes’ electrical panels only carry up to 200 amps so when appliances that draw 100+ amps are first started, of course lights will flicker. To fix this problem, call Mister Sparky to rewire your outdoor A/C unit for max capacity while also checking for problems with wire size or fusing. Lastly, there are problems that arise due to unforeseen circumstance with your electric company.

For example, when your neighbors are telling you they are experiencing flickering lights while you are too, it’s almost always an electric company problem. It could be a downed power line or that something was fried by an electric strike. However, it could also be an issue with wildlife messing with electrical equipment or tree limbs resting on power lines. In situations like these, call your electric company and let them resolve the problem.

There you have it! Now when you encounter a flickering light problem in your home, you’ll know how to address it. Just remember not to panic if you have an emergency electrical problem or electrical power outage.

May is National Electrical Safety Month

By Springdale Electrician,

At Mister Sparky, safety is important to us no matter the time, day, month or year. May is National Electrical Safety Month, which gives us a special opportunity to further discuss electrical safety practices with our friends and family. Mister Sparky electricians pledge to maintain a clean, safe, respectable and reputable place of business that reflects the high standards of the Mister Sparky brand every day. Safety is a part of our Code of Ethics. We don’t just talk about safety, though. We are committed to it. Did you know that every Mister Sparky electrician completes more than 150 hours of training per year? We do this to ensure your safety and ours alike.

Did you know that since 1992, fatal electrical injuries have declined by more than 50% on an annual basis according to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI)? We like to think that the decrease in accidents we’ve seen is due to an increase in electrical safety knowledge. To ensure a continual decline in electrical injuries over time, more safety knowledge is key.

Instead of boring you with a long list of electrical safety tips, we suggest you go check out ESFI’s 360-degree-rotating, virtual home to brush up on your electrical safety knowledge or better yet call us to schedule your own in-home electrical safety checkup today!

3 Easy Installs That Will Save Money This Winter

By Springdale Electrician,

It’s starting to get chilly in the evenings and that means winter is on the way, and we can help you save money this winter! Hiring an electrician for some service ideas can actually help you lower your winter bills. With higher electric or gas utilities during the winter, saving money probably sounds pretty good. Here are three easy service projects you will want to consider.

  1. CEILING FANS – Most of our customers think of using ceiling fans in the summer to stay cool. But when you set your fan blades to turn clockwise it changes the air flow to push warm air that has risen up to the ceiling back down into the room. This is a great easy technique to help increase the temperature of your rooms. Adding a new ceiling fan to your sitting room or bedroom will also enhance your home with all the styles from which to select.
  2. DIMMER SWITCHES – these wall mounted switches help you modulate your wattage output. Dimmer switches are great in both summer and winter. They will really help you control costs and keep your family comfortable. It’s amazing how much lighting can heat up and room and run up an electric bill. Plus you will add fantastic ambiance to any room.
  3. BATHROOM EXHAUST FANS WITH HEATER – Exhaust fans in the bathroom help control moisture accumulation. Many fans come with spot heaters. The combination of keeping the air dry and spot heating will make your morning shower comfortable and keep you from paying more to turn up a main thermostat.Upgrading your electrical system doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul of your home’s wiring or something equally major—a few minor tweaks can get you saving money and living more comfortably, day in and day out! If you’re interested in any electrical upgrades in your home, call Mister Sparky today!
    Sometimes the easiest upgrades to your home make the biggest difference in your family’s comfort. Call Mister Sparky today to schedule your appointment and keep more money in your pocket this winter!
