Wiring that is exposed:
This will need attention immediately as wires that are visible when they should not be can be a fire hazard and can also present a danger to children around the home as they will be accessible.
Large electricity bills:
A good electrician will be able to advise you on how you can save money and reduce your monthly or quarterly bill. This could be upgrading certain devices or advice on how to efficiently use what you currently have.
A loose plug socket:
This could lead to you plugs dropping out of your sockets and worse still cause a fire. A plug socket is designed to grip the plug solidly so if that is not the case, seek help.
Lights that flicker:
If you have lights that flicker it could be a simple bulb change. If this continues once a new one has been inserted you may have a fixture problem or faulty wiring. Do not attempt to repair this yourself.
