Electrical components have their own fair share of problems. Seriously, you wouldn’t believe how many electrical calls we get from homeowners who have state-of-the-art devices all throughout their homes but are struggling with a simple part failure.

Some components last for a while and others some could fail early depending on a lot of different factors in your home. No matter how lucky you are, eventually, you’ll need an electrician in Harvey, LA to work on your system. Different components require different needs, and today we’re going to talk about how these parts can become faulty. From wires to outlets, to electrical panels, these components can start hurting your quality of life. You’ll have trouble using your appliances and devices, and your comfort could seriously suffer down the line.

We’re here to help. We can give you information about the components that are in danger of becoming faulty, and get you the service you need.

Panel Problems

How is your home’s electrical panel doing? Or better yet, are you still using a fuse box? Old fuses might still be working in your home, but they’re on a pretty short timer to falling apart. Likewise, electrical panels (no matter how new they are) could run into problems. High usage, lots of power outages, and constant issues with moisture and heat could cause your electrical panel or fuse box to run into major issues.

It’s okay! Unlike giant appliances or vehicles, electrical components are a safe thing to have break. As long as you’ve got access to a professional electrician who you trust, you can easily get the part replaced and your home’s electrical system working again.


Frayed wires are a huge nuisance to many homes in our area. They don’t just cause shutdowns in appliances and devices, but they can be a safety hazard when they fray to the point of being exposed. You’ve probably seen the dangers in classic horror or action movies where frayed wires create a stream of sparks that can ignite loose items.

While the problem isn’t as bad as it would be in the movies, it’s still something that should be addressed. You should never pass a frayed wire in your home and think “that’s probably good for another few years or so.” Frayed wires are a problem and they should be fixed by a competent professional!


We’ve all experienced that outlet. You know what we’re talking about. There’s always that one outlet where you have to tell all your house guests and friends not to plug anything into it because it stopped powering things years ago. You don’t know why, you never really stress about it, it’s just there. Well, the biggest problem with faulty outlets like these is that they rarely exist alone. If there’s one faulty outlet in your house, chances are it’s just a countdown until another one becomes problematic.

What if that outlet could work again? You could smugly smile when guests come over, knowing that all of your home’s electrical outlets work and you don’t have to warn anyone! Call a professional electrician to make this a reality.
