If you are one of those lucky people who are blessed with a natural talent for being ‘handy’, then it’s probably fair to assume that you have undertaken a good amount of electrical DIY in your lifetime.

Any homeowner should be able to complete the simplest of electrical tasks, but here at Central Coast Electricians we are firm believers in the notion of calling in the professionals when things reach a higher level. 

Electrics are too dangerous and too important to the overall health of your home to be messing around with, so when something happens that you aren’t 100% sure about, the best thing to do is enlist the services of electricians on the Central Coast.

Here are some of the most common electrical problems that need an electrician.


  • Flickering Lights

Flickering lights in the home are a really common problem, with the thing that makes it difficult for DIY fixes being that there could be any number of issues causing it in the first place.

Rather than playing around with your circuits and risking messing up the flickering even more, it’s always best to get a professional in to do the inspection instead. They will be much more competent and confident in their diagnoses.


  • Buzzing Dimmer Switches

If you can hear an audible hum or buzz coming from your dimmer switches, it could be an indicator that something worse is in the making.

You can get used to the low level sound but leaving it unresolved means that something else is going on in the wiring that you can’t see.

To be 100% sure that you keep your home electricals as safe as possible, it is always advised that you get a professional to come and see any buzzing dimmer switches.


  • Tripping Circuit Breaker

We are all just about capable of flipping a trip switch when one is noticeably out of pattern, but if the problem keeps happening and isn’t always solved with the usual methods, then it is definitely worth calling a professional to have a look.

If you are in need of electricians on the Central Coast, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
