It is well known to anyone living in the Phoenix area that Parker & Sons is just one of the many HVAC, electrical, and plumbing service providers around. However, they are also one of the most popular as their forty years of business has been nothing less than perfect in more than one way.
Considered experts in all of the area of service they provide, Parker & Sons representative Justine Kelly has taken the time to mention what she and other Parker & Sons employees find to be the most common electrical problems that homeowners and renters face on a regular basis.
The first of these common electrical issues is that people find their circuit breakers tripping often, and are unsure of what to do. “When this happens, the first thing that people should do is to think about why this is happening in the first place,” said Kelly. “In most cases, if not all cases, the circuit breaker trips because people are overloading the system and using too much electricity at one given time.” Not only can this cause the circuit breaker to trip, but it can also be dangerous. In some instances, overloading the circuit breaker can lead to potential fires. The only way in which this issue can be resolved is to either add an additional circuit or upgrade your electricity.
Another common issue that homeowners and renters face on a regular basis is with their lightbulbs. Whether they flicker, dim, or burn out completely on a regular basis might not have anything to do with the actual quality of the lightbulb itself, and could be an electrical issue. When lightbulbs burn out on a regular basis, and do not last as long as they should, this is more than likely due to a poor or loose connection in the circuit or socket, rather than mere overuse. While this is inconvenient for many, there are reasons why the lights burn out faster than they should. In effect, many lightbulbs shut themselves off automatically in order to reduce the risk of starting a fire.
If you have any of these issues, Parker & Sons can assist in providing professional services, as well as providing additional information.
