Preventing Common Summer Electrical Issues in Biloxi

July 9, 2024 | Blog

As the summer heat intensifies in Biloxi, residents often face a unique set of electrical challenges that can disrupt their comfort and safety. From power surges to overloaded circuits, understanding these common summer electrical issues and how to prevent them is crucial for maintaining a safe and efficient home. At Ball Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical, we are committed to providing top-notch electrical services to ensure your home remains a haven of comfort throughout the sweltering summer months.

Common Summer Electrical Issues

1. Power Surges

Power surges are sudden spikes in electrical voltage that can damage your appliances and electronics. These surges are often caused by lightning strikes, which are more frequent during summer thunderstorms in Biloxi. Additionally, the increased use of air conditioners and other high-energy appliances can contribute to power surges.

Prevention Tips:

2. Overloaded Circuits

With the increased use of air conditioning units, fans, and other cooling devices, your home’s electrical circuits can become overloaded. This can lead to tripped breakers, blown fuses, or even electrical fires.

Prevention Tips:

  • Distribute Load Evenly: Avoid plugging too many high-energy devices into a single outlet or circuit. Spread out the usage across multiple circuits.
  • Upgrade Electrical Panel: If your home frequently experiences overloaded circuits, it may be time to upgrade your electrical panel. Our team at Ball Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical can assess your current system and recommend necessary upgrades.

3. Air Conditioner Issues

Air conditioners are essential for staying cool during Biloxi’s hot summers, but they can also be a source of electrical problems. Common issues include short cycling, tripped breakers, and capacitor failures.

Prevention Tips:

  • Regular Maintenance: Schedule regular HVAC system tune-ups to ensure your air conditioner is running efficiently. Take advantage of our $69 HVAC system tune-up offer to keep your system in top shape.
  • Check Wiring: Ensure that the wiring to your air conditioner is in good condition and not frayed or damaged.

Additional Summer Electrical Issues to Consider

4. Electrical Fires

The combination of high temperatures and increased electrical usage can elevate the risk of electrical fires. Faulty wiring, overloaded circuits, and outdated electrical systems are common culprits.

Prevention Tips:

  • Inspect Wiring: Regularly inspect your home’s wiring for signs of wear and tear. If you notice any issues, contact a professional electrician immediately.
  • Install Smoke Detectors: Ensure that smoke detectors are installed and functioning properly in all key areas of your home.
