When is it time to bring in professional assistance?
If you notice anything strange about your electrical system, including circuit breakers that keep triggering, flickering lights, odd smells or sounds, or even just outlets that are not working properly, you may need to bring in Sylvester Electric. Your electrical system is a very finely tuned part of your home, and any malfunction can result in extremely dangerous malfunctions.
The power is out. What do I do now?
First you need to find out if the issue is coming from your provider or from your home’s electrical system. Call your local electricity provider to find out if they are experiencing an outage. If not, you may have a much more serious problem. At Sylvester Electric we can be at your home in no time to keep you, your family, and your property safe.
Why does my circuit breaker keep tripping?
If your circuit breaker has been triggering repeatedly, it is because there is either a problem with your wiring, or your system is overloaded. In either case, it is best to bring in our Tewksbury electrical experts to find a permanent solution and ensure that you are not in any danger.
What is a GFCI?
GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. It helps to protect you and your family from electric shock in the event that a given electrical device is near water. If the GFCI senses power being directed somewhere it doesn’t belong, it shuts off. These receptacles are frequently required to be used in kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor areas, and laundry rooms.
How can I save money and energy with my home electrical system?
There are several things you can do. Some are active, such as ensuring that you turn off lights and unplug appliances when they are not in use. Others are more passive, such as ensuring that you have the most efficient possible lighting (such as LEDs) and wiring setups.
What is the sound coming from my electrical panel?
If your electrical panel is making sounds of any kind, it is generally indicating very serious issues which, if left untouched, could result in costly repairs or even electrical fires.
