The electrical trade is filled with many talented individuals who specialize in their own particular area of expertise. For example, some electricians excel at bending conduit or wiring theatres or gas stations. Some electricians thrive in industrial settings or installing and repairing large electric motors. Many of my trade school instructors were Navy electricians who learned their craft working on nuclear submarines. I suppose it is much the same as doctors who specialize in one area of the human body; a plastic surgeon probably doesn’t perform open heart surgery.
At Edison Electric we specialize in residential electrical service. Our experiences in the hundreds of homes we visit every year have helped amass a wealth of knowledge about troubleshooting in residential homes. In some of our blogs we have discussed how using sight, hearing, feel and the sense of smell can help detect an electrical problem in your home. Our electricians use all of these senses everyday to locate electrical problems and make repairs. In addition to these senses, a good residential electrician develops a keen, instinctive “sixth sense” with respect to electrical troubleshooting.
When we encounter an electrical problem in a home, troubleshooting is often required to locate the problem. Finding the cause of a challenging electrical problem can take a bit of detective work, but in the end it is our past experiences which lead us in the right direction toward locating the problem. At Edison Electric we have performed difficult troubleshooting in both new and old homes. When your switches and outlets begin acting up, you are better served with a company who specializes in residential electrical service and only residential service. Troubleshooting in someone’s home is specialty work to be handled by a true professional.
