Internal wiring, machinery, appliances, fuse boxes, surge protectors, outlets, and circuit boards all have problems from time to time. When these problems occur, it is rarely advisable to attempt repairs on your own. Thousands of volts of electricity run through these components. Also, it is sometimes impossible to know that has caused a particular electrical problem. Condensation and moisture may have dripped into the interiors of your walls, corroding and shorting out wires. Small insects or chemicals may have dripped onto wiring and eaten away at insulation. These little problems cause electricity to arc between wires and circuits, burning them out or causing dangerous surges that can destroy circuits, outlets, or appliances.

You may also notice variances in electrical power when running high-powered appliances like microwaves or blenders. Lights may dim. Other appliances may temporarily lose power. Many people attribute this to old wiring in the walls of homes or buildings, but this is not always the case. At best, it is an annoyance.
