Electrical Troubleshooting for Las Vegas
Electricity. We expect it always to be there when we need it, right? But sometimes, electrical power can be unpredictable. Does your home ever have problems related to electricity such as:

A professional electrician will find the cause and fix it so you can go back to enjoying your home.
Some of the Issues We See
Frequent electrical surges
Faulty wiring isn’t always the cause. Surges can become from damage to power lines, lightning strikes, damaged appliances, and more. Even short surges are problematic. If they occur frequently, they will damage expensive electrical elements that are plugged in, such as your costly audio-visual equipment and your brand-new refrigerator, causing them to shorten their useful lifespan.
Unreliable Light Switches
Flip a switch; you expect your light to come on. When that doesn’t happen or is unpredictable, it’s time to call Sin City Electrical for a home electrical diagnosis. Sometimes the switch can wear out, but it may be a deeper problem. It could be a fault in the outlet, with the circuit, or throughout your home’s wiring.
Frequently Tripping Circuit Breakers
When your circuit breaker trips, it is usually at an inconvenient time. You have probably chased down a breaker and reset it yourself from time to time. The usual suspects are high wattage appliances running concurrently and causing a drain on the circuit. When we are troubleshooting electrical wiring in your home, be sure to tell us if you have frequent trips. It could be something more serious. Often circuit overload is the culprit.
Does your home need more outlets? Most homes do not have enough outlets, and often they are not placed when you need them. Call us to help you relocate your outlet.
One problem that should not be ignored is electrical shock. These shocks usually occur when you turn a plugged-in device on or off. In addition to endangering the device, you risk injury when to yourself or your loved ones. You may even find a household fire started from ignoring this common electrical problem.
High electrical bill
A high electrical bill is often a symptom of needing to do some troubleshooting. Finding the cause can be tricky for a homeowner, but it will be worth reaching out to Sin City Electrical to help identify the root cause of the high bills.
