Electrical Troubleshooting in Central Iowa

Homes require a lot of care to keep them in good condition, and most homeowners have a list as long as their arm of improvements and repairs that they want to have done to their home. It can be difficult to know how to prioritize these items, but staying on top of electrical repairs is more than just a matter of cosmetics or convenience. It can be a matter of safety both for your home and for your family. If your home has been showing signs of electrical problems, it is a good idea to reach out to your friends at Coffin Electric right away to have these problems diagnosed and resolved. 

When to Call Coffin Electric

According to FEMA, electrical malfunction is among the top three causes of fires on residential properties. However, when an electrical system is properly cared for and maintained by a licensed electrician, the probability of this occurring in your home is greatly reduced. At Coffin Electric, we are determined to bring down these numbers by providing meticulous electrical services to Central Iowa. 

An important step in the process is troubleshooting electrical problems, and it takes teamwork between the homeowner and our electricians at Coffin Electric to get the job done. When you notice signs of an electrical malfunction, we will take it from there and find the problem. It is good to be aware of when to make the call since even seemingly small problems can be signs of something that should be fixed right away. 

You should call us as soon as possible if you smell smoke, melting plastic, or a fishy smell. These can all be signs that things are heating up behind your walls, and this is generally an urgent problem. You should also pick up the phone if you notice scorching around your outlets, large white or yellow sparks when plugging in a device, an electrical panel that feels warm, flickering lights, or breakers that are tripping on a regular basis. 

We can fix other problems as well such as broken outlets, lights that don’t turn on, and switches that no longer work as they should. We always find the source of the problem during our troubleshooting so that we can fix the root cause. This keeps you from having to make follow-up appointments for something that should have been fixed the first time.
