Of all the systems that we need to integrate in our homes and that we need to understand, the electrical installation is perhaps the most complex. Depending on the age of the installation, you may face various problems, from a lack of voltage to low or flickering lights, faults in the light switch or, in the worst case, a fire.
If the outlet appears to have changed color or there are signs of melted plastic, it is a warning sign that it may be burned. It could also mean that it is just damaged or incorrectly installed. Regardless, never try to use an outlet that looks burned!
Other warning signs:
- you smell a strong burning odor from your outlet
- you touch it and it feels hot
- you hear a buzzing sound coming from it
Contact specialized electrician Denver CO personnel immediately to inspect the installation and change it.
For your safety and that of those around you, turn to authorized specialists for any intervention in the electrical system, in order to avoid accidents that can have serious consequences; in addition to risking costly damage, you risk your own safety and health.
