Is your system overloaded? If you have a circuit that you suspect may be carrying more than it should, make sure the fixtures and services on the circuit exceed its safe capacity. A circuit's safe capacity is 20 percent less than its total capacity, as a frame of reference. In many homes, circuits are not divided rationally. There may be too many receptacles on one circuit, and only one of the two on another.
Some older homes in Lancaster, TX were wired under early codes and have never been updated. Others have been updated by homeowners without sufficient knowledge. By evaluating your circuits, you can flag problem areas and determine what improvement need to be made.
Is it really grounded? Many do-it-yourselfers simply replace old ungrounded receptacles with new three-holed models. The resulting receptacles look grounded but are not. And even in newer homes, a grounded receptacle may not have the ground wire attached, rendering the third hole useless. Test each of your receptacles with a receptacle analyzer. It also will tell you whether the receptacle is correctly polarized.
