How do I know if I need an electrical repair?

In some cases, it’s very obvious that you need to call the electricians at Mainstream – if your entire home is without power, that’s where we come in! But there are many other subtler signs you should keep an eye out for:

Light Switches Not Working As They Should

If you turn on a light switch and nothing happens, the light flickers, or the light illuminates on a delay, you may have issues with your home’s wiring or circuitry.

Lights are Brighter or Dimmer Than Usual

You know your home better than anyone. If you can tell that certain lights are brighter or dimmer than you’re used to them being, there could be a house-wide issue with your electrical system’s main neutral connection.

Unusually High Energy Bills

If you’ve seen a large jump in your monthly electric bill and don’t suspect this is due to increased usage, your home’s system may be at fault. Mainstream’s professional electricians are here to help analyze the problem and get it fixed fast!

Additional Signs of Electrical Problems

If you experience smoking electric outlets, a “pop” noise when turning on lights, an electric shock when flipping a switch, visible sparks from appliances/lighting, or switches that are warm to the touch, call us right away! These are all signs of potential electrical issues that could lead to something more serious, such as a fire or injury.
