  • Your outlet is overloaded 
  • Your circuit breaker is not working properly

Should electrical plugs get hot?

No, electrical plugs should not get hot. If your outlet is hot, that can be an indication of loose or faulty wiring that should be addressed right away. A hot outlet can pose a huge risk if it becomes too hot or there is an electrical shock, as it can lead to an electrical fire. If you notice your outlet is hot to the touch, you should remove anything that is plugged in and have an electrician inspect the outlet to determine what the exact issue is. Call us today to get your electrical outlet checked.

Is it dangerous if a circuit breaker keeps tripping?

Yes, a circuit breaker that keeps tripping can be dangerous. If your circuit breaker keeps tripping, that indicates that there is a deeper issue with your electrical connections. A circuit breaker will typically trip due to a short circuit, an overloaded circuit or faulty wiring. Each of these issues should not be ignored, as they can lead to safety issues with your home’s electrical connections. To get your home’s electrical issue fixed, give us a call today.
