Why are some of my outlets and lights not working near Sarasota?

If one or more outlets in your home stop working and your circuit breaker is not tripped, a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) might be the culprit. When there is an electrical imbalance, GFCI outlets trip significantly faster, protecting people from electrocution. If you press the "test" button and nothing happens, the GFCI has tripped. You may restore power to the outlet and any outlets downstream by pressing “reset” until you hear it click.

Other difficulties that may arise include faulty wiring or loose outlets. Wiring and screws can loosen over time. When an outlet fails, it might affect several outlets or lights around the house. Most homeowners are capable of tightening outlet screws on their own. If faulty wiring appears to be the source of the problem, contact us for assistance. In the United States, loose wiring is the third biggest cause of home structure fires.

How much does an electrician cost to fix an outlet near Sarasota?

Electricians generally charge less than $100 for a house visit and a variable hourly fee for labor. Typically, the cost of replacing old electrical outlets is around $125 for parts and labor. If the electrical wiring from the original outlet is still intact, this is a quick and straightforward project. You may expect to pay between $200 and $250 if the ground wire is cut or new wires need to be hooked to the outlet. 

Can you rewire a house yourself?

No. Unless you are a trained electrician, you should never attempt to rewire a house yourself. Completing electrical work is a risky endeavor. Electrocution, shock and fires might occur when completing electrical rewires. These risk factors have the potential to cause significant harm or even death. Every year electrical components and systems are responsible for over 51,000 house fires in the United States alone. For your safety, always have a licensed electrician perform your home rewiring project!
