If you’ve ever witnessed a power outage, then you know the terrible feeling when you lose power. You quickly begin to appreciate electricity and all the perks it gives us. Whether it’s your cell phone, television, refrigerator, or some other appliance, no one wants to ever be without it. So when something does happen at home, should you fix it yourself or leave it to a pro?
Household problems that require a professional electrician include…
1. Flickering Lights
If you notice your lights flickering, try to change the light bulb (this might be a quick fix). If this doesn’t work, it may be flickering due to poor wiring or a faulty fixture, which requires professional attention.
2. Expensive Electrical Bills
If your bills are abnormally high, take note of the little things you could fix. For instance, shutting off the lights when you leave the room and unplugging appliances when you’re done using them. If you notice that your bills are still high after a few months, it may be due to old appliances or poor insulation. Call a professional electrician to help you assess the issue.
3. Exposed Wires
If you’ve done one or two DIY projects in the past, you may have accidentally exposed some of your home wires. Besides it visually bein unappealingly, it can also cause a huge fire hazard in your home.

4. Strange Smells
Any strange odor coming from your electrical outlets is a bad sign! Immediately call a professional to repair or replace your switch or outlet.
5. Plugs Won’t Stay In Outlets
Outlets should be able to hold any plug. When the prongs in the socket of the outlet begin to fail, it can cause a fire behind the drywall.
