Residential Electrical Repair in Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Ohio

Residential electrical repairs should always be performed by an expert electrician that’s both licensed and insured.

This is your home we’re talking about and your safety. Because of this, even the most minute electrical work is something serious. Attempting to be thrifty or DIY can not only end up harming you, it can also harm your home or cause a fire that causes massive, expensive damage.

4 Common Residential Electrical Issues

Have you been disregarding any sort of electrical problems in or around your home? Although you might be able to repair some minor electrical problems on your own, most electrical issues are best left to the pros. In the following, we list several common electrical problems that are hazardous and should be taken care of immediately by a professional:


If you experience bulb blowouts frequently, it could be due to something much more serious than over-usage. You could have a loosened connection in the circuit or even in the socket. If you have recessed lights that frequently fail, it could be from nearby insulation. Insulation can cause overheating, and these fixtures are designed to shut off to prevent fire from starting.


Tripped circuit breakers are usually a sign the circuit is overloaded and is using too much electricity. If your breaker is constantly tripping, you should add a circuit or consider upgrading your electrical service, which we can help you do.


A burnt/odd odor might point to overheating and melting insulator materials. These smells could mean that damage from overheating may have already begun, and if that’s the case, it is crucial to have it addressed by a professional electrician as soon as possible. Naturally, if the smell does not subside or worsens, it could be a developing fire in a hidden space. If you’re unsure, it is better to be safe than sorry – dial 911 and get everyone out of the home.


Dead outlets can happen as a result of a tripped poor connection (and even possibly arcing), or a tripped breaker because of excessive heat buildup. This could result in melted wires or outlets.
