Electrical Troubleshooting

Electrical Troubleshooting

Are your lights flickering or dimming in an area of your home when the microwave is on or when the refrigerator turns on? Do you have an outlet not working or working intermittently at best? Are you blowing fuses? Do you have a pesky electrical circuit breaker that keeps tripping, killing power to an area of your home? Have you detected sparks or noticed occasional smoke coming from an outlet or appliance in your home? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then let the electrical troubleshooting experts at SME Inc of Seattle work to fix all your electrical problems. At SME, we have years of experience with troubleshooting electric switches, electric plugs (outlets or receptacles), lights, electric wires, and electrical equipment connections in residential and commercial buildings. Our courteous, licensed, trained electricians will safely troubleshoot and repair all of your Seattle electrical problems.

Our electricians at SME, Inc. of Seattle want to only replace the defective components and do so in the least amount of time. We use a systematic approach that is reliable and effective in finding the source of most electrical issues.

  1. Be Prepared. Our electricians are experienced and licensed. Our trucks are equipped with the necessary tools to troubleshoot, inspect and repair any electrical problem that we find.
  2. Inspection. Some electrical problems are easily identified through pure observation. Things like over–lamping (using a bulb too high in wattage for a light receptacle), or overloading an outlet. Other electrical problems will require use of a voltage meter, circuit tester and tracing.
  3. Identification. When a specific electrical problem is identified the causes too must be analyzed. Our electricians will systematically check all possible causes of an electrical problem until they find the origin of the problem.
  4. Prioritize the Cause. Often more than one issue can be the cause of an electrical defect. SME, Inc. electricians will check the integrity of receptacles, connections and wiring to make sure we fix the entire electrical problem.
  5. Repair and Test. SME, Inc. of Seattle always employs the highest safety procedures in our work. Our electricians follow proven safety practices to assure their safety and yours. Once the problem is found our experienced electricians will repair the problem and test to make sure everything is working properly.

Electrical problems can come up at any time and for many reasons: remodel work, poor installation, or even electrical failure due to age and outdated standards to name a few. If you are thinking about doing any exterior work on your home that requires digging, make sure to have all your utilities located before you do any digging. But if you or someone else does happen to damage an electric wire or electric cable, SME Inc of Seattle can find and repair the problem, and in most cases we can be out the same day. If you have even the slightest question in your mind as to whether or not a part of the electrical wiring in your home or business is safe, please buy some peace of mind and call a licensed electrical professional. We can also work around your schedule so that our service call is as convenient as possible for you. If you can't wait, you can call anytime because SME Inc of Seattle offers 24-hour emergency service.
