Harsh winter weather takes a toll on your home. That includes the electrical system. Palmetto Electrical Contractors knows that any electrical problems are frustrating, but it’s especially trying in the winter when it’s dark and cold outside. As your local Rock Hill electrician, we want you to be as comfortable as possible this season. Be on the lookout for these electrical repairs that tend to pop up during the winter months:

  1. Circuit breaker trips – Circuit breaker trips aren’t difficult fix but they are annoying. This issue does tend to be more common during the winter since we’re inside more and using more appliances, like heaters. Heavy appliance use can tax your household circuits. If you have repeated problems with this, call us to make sure there’s not a more serious underlying problem.
  2. Outdated electrical panel – Outdated electrical panels may not be able to keep up with demand this time of year. This can also lead to more circuit breaker trips. If your panel is decades old, call us to install a new one.
  3. Frayed or impaired wiring – Have you noticed that your lights flicker every time the winter wind howls? It could mean that your wiring is frayed. When wind or ice hits frayed wiring, it can create a short – or a more dangerous problem. Make a note of flickering lights and call us to check it out.
