How do you diagnose electrical problems in a house near Alexandria?
Here are three common electrical problems and what to do about them.
  1. Strange odors - If you smell something strange emanating from an electrical outlet, unplug everything connected to it and don't use it again until a certified electrician has checked it. In addition, if your breaker panel or fuse box emits an unusual odor, contact an electrician immediately.
  2. Arc faults - These occur when an electrical circuit deviates from its intended route, usually due to a flaw in the wiring. They are a common source of electrical fires. Arc faults can be avoided by installing a device known as an arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI).
  3. Warm or sparking outlets - If your light switches feel warm to the touch or an outlet is sparking, contact a professional electrician immediately to determine whether your wiring needs to be repaired or the fixture should be replaced.
