Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

10 Most Common Household Electrical Issues | Paschal

When it comes to household electrical problems, it is important to bring in a professional to service your home. Failure to do this may result in additional electrical issues while putting everyone inside the house in danger. Whatever the electrical issue is, the team at Paschal is here to assist, no matter how big or how small the job may be.

Common Electrical Surges

If your household is commonly suffering from electrical surges and the power shutting down, there is an issue either with using too much electricity or a stable electrical flow within your property. 

Light Switches Not Working
Do you have a light switch that isn’t working? Perhaps you have a power outlet that isn’t working either.

Constantly Tripping Circuit Breaker
Directly connected to the electrical surges, does your circuit breaker constantly trip? Do you need to flip a room switch on what seems to be a regular basis?

Dips in Power
Do lights randomly dip in brightness? Do devices seem to fail and then come back on? These dips in power can signal larger issues. 

Light Bulbs Burning Out Quickly
Most standard light bulbs will now last years, if not decades. So if you are swapping out bulbs on a regular basis, there’s a wattage problem. 

Lighting Goes Out and Comes Back On
Often connected with the power dips, do you have lights that come off and come back on? This means there isn’t a steady electrical current. 

Circuit Overload
If your circuit is overloading it is likely tripping. You’ll need to have this addressed ASAP. 

Lights Too Dim (Or Too Bright)
If your lights are too dim, the bulbs are not getting enough electricity. If too bright, there’s too much electricity flowing through. 

Higher Than Normal Electrical Bill
If you see higher than normal electrical bills, the electricity is going somewhere. This is potentially dangerous and we recommend assessing and addressing the situation as soon as possible to avoid larger damage or potential hazards.

Electrical Shocks When Touching Switches and Outlets
If you’re getting shocked when touching switches and outlets, you need to have it addressed because electricity is free flowing from the connection.
