Here at Delta Electrical, we’ve seen pretty much every electricity-related situation ever known to man. That may be a slight exaggeration, but each and every residential electrician we employ could probably tell you a story or two about some of the wilder electrical things they’ve seen during their time on the job.

In today’s blog, we’re going to take a look at a handful of different times that a residential electrician would come in handy.

Keep in mind, of course, that if you experience these situations (or any others) yourself, Delta Electrical is just a quick phone call away. Our team of trained professionals is here to provide our customers with the highest level of professionalism, integrity, and fairness.

3 Situations Where a Residential Electrician Was the Solution

Something Smells Funny Here…

This is a scenario that’s all too common to the majority of residential electricians out there. In it, a homeowner has been away all day, drives home, walks through the garage and into the home, and that’s when they smell it. “Is that burning plastic?” they ask.

For many, the first response is to attempt to follow their nose to the source of the problem, but that’s not always the best idea. If it smells like plastic is burning in your home, there’s a good chance that something is going wrong with the wiring somewhere in your home. If that’s the case, grab your cell phone, get outside, and call a residential electrician. He or she will be able to pinpoint the problem and get things fixed up right away.

The Lights are Flickering

If you’ve ever been at home enjoying a nice, relaxing movie night with a bowl of popcorn and the lights flicker, you might be thinking that your house is haunted. “I should have known better than to watch a scary movie at night,” you tell yourself.

The reality of the matter, however, is that your house (probably) isn’t haunted. If your lights are flickering, it’s a sign that too much current is being drawn and there’s a bigger issue with your home’s electricity. When the lights start to flicker, don’t wait around to see if they’ll stop on their own. Instead, call in a residential electrician who can solve the problem quickly and prove once and for all that you don’t have a haunted house…probably.


You’re Constantly in a State of Shock

Static electricity means that a little zap is fairly common from time to time, but if you’re getting shocked every time you plug in your iPad, it’s time for a change. If your outlets are warm or hot every time you touch them or, worse yet, if you can see burns around your outlet boxes, it’s a sign that something needs to change. This is especially an issue if you live in an older home, so if that’s the case, be sure to have someone come by to inspect your home’s wiring and see if there’s anything that should be changed in order to keep you and your family safe.

Shocks aren’t a fun thing to experience, and if you’ve been shocked, it’s time to call in the professionals. After all, the only thing that’s shocking should be how quickly and affordably a residential electrician from Delta Electrical fixes your problem!
