4 Signs Your Electricity is Leaking

Jun 16, 2021 | Uncategorized

Do you know about electronic leakage? Electricity can leak the same way water might leak. However, it’s harder to spot. Leaking electricity simply means electricity is being used by an appliance or device when you think it isn’t. Some electric leakage is normal. For example, if your TV has a remote, it is always using a tiny bit of electricity so that it can receive the signal from the remote.

Here’s an idea of what normal electrical leakage looks like.

The most common cause for electric leakage is new modern appliances in old homes. Older electrical wiring wasn’t made to handle our new modern appliances. It might be time for a rewire or panel upgrade.

If you notice any of these 4 signs in your home, you might have a larger than normal electric leak. Give us a call so we can come out and inspect your electrical wiring.

1. Larger Electric Bill
