Some Common Electrical Questions

Do you have electrical questions? An electrical contractor from Maclaren Electrical Services Ltd can help you with any electrical questions you may have.

Do I need to worry about power outlets that are not working?

Before you contact an electrician, test some outlets just to make sure they are broken and it is not the appliance. Many times when people think outlets are not working they actually are! Turning the wall switch on also may be the answer. However, if the outlet is not working then you may need to contact an electrician. An experienced electrician from MES will be happy to solve any problems you are having! Also, it is common to experience this problem when moving into a new home. If this is the case MES will be able to carry out a full safety tests to ensure your new property is up to standard.

A full electrical safety test from an electrician is useful if you have moved into a new home.

The light switches in my home are hot to touch, is there something wrong?

Light switches tend to feel warm or hot to touch when they have been left on for a few minutes. This is because heat coming off the switch means that there is electricity running through it. If your on/off switch is warm it may mean that there is too much electricity running through it. This can be caused by a bad installation. This can be a fire hazard. In this case the best thing to do will be to contact an electrician from MES. They will be able to help with any problems, rewiring especially, if necessary!
