How to Test If an Outlet Is Working Properly

At Kalahari Electrical we want to help keep you informed on everything electric. We are well-established Atlanta electrical contractors and are available for your needs. Often times we go to our clients’ homes and find that their outlets are either malfunctioning or not working at all. This month we want to discuss how you can test to see if your outlet is working properly.

There are a few steps that we recommend taking when checking to see if an outlet works especially before calling out an electrician. First and foremost, make sure that all switches that could be attached to that particular outlet are turned on. The next thing that you want to make sure and check is that the circuit breaker or fuse is intact that is in connection with that outlet. Often times outlets are tripped and simply need to be flipped in the circuit breaker. Once you have completed these steps, now you can test the outlet! It is often as simple as plugging in a light and seeing if you can turn it on. If the light doesn’t turn on you can assume there is no current in the socket and you should call a professional to repair it.

If you have any questions about your particular outlets, or if you need help with repairing broken outlets please do not hesitate to call us at Kalahari Electric.

From the Owners

Our customers here are our number one concern: we treat them as if it was our own home. We pride ourselves on being on time. We give a standard hour window and work to meet you within that time. One of the owners, Joseph Cloer or Jan Rossouw, normally answer the phone so you do get to talk to an electrician directly and discuss your problem with us so we can give you advice over the phone. We have a saying here: we would rather over-do it than to have to do it over. If you are in need of an electrician, give Kalahari a call. We will take care of your residential, commercial, and emergency electrical needs.
