Consequences of Bad Wiring

Poor wiring can cause electrical fires or shocks that can cause power surges, faulty power arcs, and even death. While a frayed wire can seem innocent, it will transmit a dangerous current surging through your body if you touch it with your bare hand. If you believe you need new electrical cables in your home, you should contact a professional electrician to avoid any health problems.

When an electrical wire is damaged, cracked, corroded, or worn, it can significantly increase your chance of having an electrical accident. Only a qualified electrician should check your wires. They can also upgrade and replace your old or faulty wires with brand new electrical wires.

Signs Your Electrical System Needs New Wires

Heat, bending, corrosion, or general wear and tear can cause frays or cracks in the wires. Here are the signs to watch for that may show your home requires new electrical wires:

Damaged Wires

Screws and nails pinching your wires are just one way your wires can fray. Damaged wires are a major hazard for fires and cause threaten the lives of your family and the safety of your home.

Melted Insulation Around Wiring

If an electrical connection starts to loosen or was installed incorrectly, it can generate a horrible accumulation of heat. This can cause the conductor to heat up and melt all the insulation around your electrical wiring.

Blown Fuses

A blown fuse can occur if too many lights or appliances are on at the same time, causing the circuit to overload and melt the ribbons inside of the fuse. As a result, the power going into the circuit can die suddenly.

Odd Noise Coming From the Wiring

Cracking, buzzing, or sizzling noises coming from your outlets should be avoided and turned off immediately. This can cause a huge fire or shock to your body if not handled properly.

Discolored Outlets

Staining and discoloration can mean you are experiencing a power surge. This can be a huge fire concern that needs to be addressed immediately.

Burning Odor

Smoke or fire smells are only a sign of trouble. You need to shut off the main circuit breaker immediately and turn off all of your appliances until the source of the problem is identified and fixed by a qualified technician.

Messy Wiring

Your wires should be neatly and properly installed, due to messy wiring posing a significant fire risk. A licensed electrician can help ensure that your wiring is compliant and safe.

Frequent Tripped Breakers

You should not be constantly resetting your circuit breaker. If you are, this could mean your circuits are overloaded.

Warm/Vibrating Outlets

If your electrical outlet is emitting heat, that is a sign that your wiring has gone bad and you need to contact a professional immediately.

Scorched Outlets

Your outlets and switches should not be hot to touch, they should be cool. If you are noticing warm or burn spots on your outlets, that could mean you have an unsafe wiring condition.

Flickering Lights
