What should I do if I smell an electrical burning odor in my house?

Firstly, don't ignore the smell as it could indicate a serious electrical problem. Safely turn off the power at the main electrical panel and contact a professional electrician immediately to inspect and resolve the issue.

Why do my lights flicker?

Flickering lights may be caused by loose connections, overloaded circuits, or faulty wiring. It's best to consult an electrician to diagnose the exact cause and provide a proper solution.

Why is my light switch hot?

A hot light switch could indicate an underlying electrical issue, such as loose connections or overloaded circuits. To prevent potential hazards, it's crucial to have a qualified electrician investigate and address the problem promptly.
