Electrical Repair FAQs
Should a “hot” light switch concern me?
A light switch that is hot to the touch is a serious concern. As light switches age and components wear out, the exposed wires can generate sparks when turned on or off. If you have a hot light switch, it can become a potential electrical hazard. We recommend you call an electrician out as soon as possible.
Why is my circuit breaking tripping?
Due to a multitude of reasons, if your circuit continues to trip, we recommend leaving it in the tripped position and having Black Diamond out as soon as possible. You want to avoid continuous resetting of a breaker as it is an indicator that could cause more harm than good.
Why are my lights flickering?
If your lights are tightly screwed into the fixture but still flickering, it is usually because of a fluctuation within the household voltage. However, it can also be caused by a faulty circuit breaker or a loose electrical connection, so you will want to have a certified electrician look to confirm the cause.
What’s the difference between a fuse and a circuit breaker?
If your home is still using fuses, you might want to consider a panel upgrade as fuses are outdated.
Can I perform electrical repairs myself?
It’s not advisable. Electrical systems are hazardous, and one mistake is all it takes to cause serious injury. Unless you are a licensed electrician, you should always contact a professional to perform service on your electrical systems.
