Common Causes of Broken Outlets
A broken or malfunctioning outlet can be a real nuisance. Understanding why outlets malfunction can help you take preventive measures and know when to call for electrical outlet repair. Outlets typically fail because of a:
- Damaged breaker
- Electrical arcs
- Power overload
- Old wiring
Most outlets break down because of old age. While many of your home's electrical outlets seem to work well, they may lack the capacity to power modern devices. This is why you should consider upgrading to new receptacles.
For example, a GFCI outlet installation protects you from electrical shocks, while a USB wall outlet installation allows you to power your appliances without an adapter. Whether you want a new GFCI receptacle or AFCI outlet installation, we have you covered.

Signs You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade
Unless you have electrical training, it can be challenging to look at your breaker panel and tell how much it can handle and whether you need to upgrade it. However, a few telltale signs point to an outdated panel that needs an upgrade.
Keep an eye out for the following signs that you may need an electrical panel replacement or upgrade:
- You have two-pronged (non-grounded) outlets.
- You hear a crackling noise from the fuse box.
- You have constantly blowing fuses.
- Your breakers trip frequently.
- Your appliances are not running at full power.
Your electrical panel is at the center of your home’s electrical setup, so you must ensure your panel meets your household demands. Our team can assess your home’s electrical load and recommend a solution for the panel upgrade.
