CW Electrical Services Discuss Why AC Units Can Cause Electrical Problems

The Pittsburgh electrical services contractor, CW Electrical, notes how air conditioners are often the source of residential and commercial electrical issues. These high-load devices can trip circuits and be the cause of much stress.

    PITTSBURGH, PA, June 19, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Pittsburgh electrical services company, CW Electrical, discusses the importance of having your air conditioner inspected before the upcoming summer heat waves. Residential and commercial customers alike are no stranger to AC electrical issues as they may come in multiple forms. Due to the high-energy load requirements demanded by these devices, dedicated wiring is essential for them to function properly.

What Happens When Air Conditioners Go Bad
Since poor electrical line installations are not uncommon (typically when performed by inexperienced electricians or residents attempting a DIY project), problems like burnt wiring, frequently tripped circuit breakers and even dimming lights are not uncommon.

Needless to say, if you have recently experienced any of these occurrences, it would be wise to contact a reputable Pittsburgh electrician immediately. While very few electrical issues are considered minor, those pertaining to AC systems are definitely not!

In addition to posing immediate fire hazards (excessive current passing through an insufficiently-rated wires is a recipe for disaster), you could wind up spending a massive amount more on your utility bills. Sporadic energy use and an overloaded breaker box all lead to one thing: added costs that you really do not want to be paying!

According to Chris Walton, Owner and Operator of CW Electrical, "To avoid running your AC constantly and consequently keeping its energy use in check, consider installing heavy drapes and using ceiling fans to keep your place cooler during daytime hours. Only run the unit when necessary and avoid dramatic temperature fluctuations."
