Have Your Electrical Circuits Checked

Some people may find it difficult to find solutions that can fix malfunctioning circuits or outlets because first you have to locate outlets linked to other circuits and then find a convenient way to reach it. As you can see these are tasks that require the suitable equipment and expertise as the average person may not even know what a circuit is.

Most of the time people use extension cords and think this will eliminate the issue however they are for short term use and don’t fix the problem. It would be best to have an electrician here at Spyrka come in to evaluate the problem for you. First the dispatched electrician will begin by tracing general- purpose circuits using labels on the main panel.

This will give them a basic idea as to where the circuits run.  Only a skilled electrician possess the adequate knowledge to properly map out these circuits in order to turn off the respective circuit breaker at the main panel followed by a thorough testing of outlets throughout the home.

Once circuits have been mapped out and the testing of outlets is completed a calculation can be made and the source of the issue can be better pinpointed. To better explain a circuit is overloaded if the designated current is exceeded for instance, 1,800 watts for a 15-amp circuit. So by conducting tests the electrician will be able to more accurately determine which circuit might be overloading so that it can be traced and fixed.

Most likely this process will be repeated for other circuits until you know what’s what.
