Electrical malfunctions are a leading cause of fires in New Jersey every year.  Problems with electrical wiring throughout a structure or faulty wiring within a defective product account for numerous fires every year in New Jersey.

Some of the common causes of electrical fires include:

  • Faulty wiring
  • Improperly installed appliances
  • Defective products
  • Damage to electrical wires during renovations
  • Circuit breaker failures

In order to help prevent electrical fires from occurring in your home or business there are some warning signs that you can look for:

  • Lights changing in brightness or repeated failure
  • Circuit breakers or light switches feel hot
  • Circuit breakers or fuses that trip even when not overloaded
  • Visible sparking or sounds coming from your breaker panel
  • Damaged or rusted circuit breakers and panels
  • Overloaded outlets caused by extension cords and plug expanders
  • No GFCI protection within 6’ of a water source

If you see any of these issues you should contact a licensed electrician immediately to ensure the electrical integrity of the structure.
