How to tell if you have Damaged Sockets
Oftentimes, especially in older homes, there comes a time to replace your electrical sockets or perhaps install new ones to help modernize your living space. Our team at Wireman Electric is familiar with both installation and repair, but it often falls on the homeowner to identify the need. So, how can you tell if the electrical sockets in your home are damaged? It’s really pretty easy. All outlets have a plate that surrounds them, and that plate can hold some of the most obvious clues to a faulty socket. Burn marks, cracks, or loose wiring around the plate are all telltale signs. Further, if plugs won’t stay firmly placed in an outlet something is likely wrong on the inside. Finally, if you have observed inconsistencies in the power being provided by a specific outlet in your home that, too, is a good indication that something is amiss with the underlying electrical.
Even if all sockets and switches in your home are working well, many homeowners have the urge to install new switches and sockets or relocate switches and sockets to new locations.
