Outlets and Switches
Outlet Repair and Installation in St. George
It’s no secret that many homes have problems with their outlets and switches. In fact, a quick Google search for “repair outlet” or “repair switch” will bring up countless pages of results. The problem is that many people try to DIY these fixes themselves rather than calling a professional. This can be expensive and time-consuming, especially if the problem is not easy to fix.
Hiring a professional for outlet repairs and installations is important for a few reasons. First of all, electrical work can be dangerous if it's not done properly. Second, it's often difficult to properly fix an outlet or switch if you don't know what you're doing. Hiring a professional ensures that the job will be done properly, and that the outlet or switch will be up and running safely and efficiently.

Signs It’s Time for an Outlet Repair
There are a few reasons why you might need outlet repairs. The first is that the outlets in your home may simply be old and worn out. Over time, the metal strips inside the outlet slots will corrode or bend, which can cause the outlet to become loose or stop working altogether.
Another common reason for needing outlet repairs is that the outlets may not be properly grounded. This can be dangerous and can also cause problems with your electrical system. If you're not sure whether your outlets are properly grounded, it's best to call in a professional to check them out.
Finally, if you're remodeling your home or doing some other kind of construction, you may need to have new outlets installed. This is a job that's best left to a professional, as it can be difficult and dangerous to perform yourself. Discount Service Electric is the name to call for all your electrical needs, including outlet repairs and installations.
Other signs that it’s time to call an electrician for outlet repairs:
- Burning odor - If you smell a burning odor, it's likely that your electrical wiring behind the outlet is arcing and the electricity is melting some of the plastic from the outlet. This can be dangerous and can also cause problems with your electrical system.
- Flickering lights - Flickering lights can be a sign that you need outlet repair because it could mean that there's something wrong with the outlet itself. While it could be as simple as needing to replace a bulb, it could also be indicative of a more serious problem like faulty switches or an overloaded circuit.
- Sparking – While experiencing a small spark when plugging something into your outlet is normal, a big spark could mean problems with the wiring or overall connection. You should call an electrician to look for signs of water damage or frayed wiring.
- Strange noises coming from your outlet - If you're hearing strange noises coming from your outlet, it's a good sign that you need outlet repair. Cracking, clicking, buzzing, and/or sizzling are all noises that should let you know that it’s time to call a professional for electrical repair.
