There may be a loose connection somewhere on the circuit or the circuit is overloaded.

Sometimes dimmer switches do get warm to the touch. As long as the switch isn’t operating lighting above 300 watts, your situation should be safe. If you smell burning, or the plastic is melting, clearly this situation is not safe and the switch wiring should be replaced.

It all depends on what size load you have added since the service was installed. In Ottawa and surrounding areas, Hydro One and Hydro Ottawa provide a consumption report, which is an overview of your hourly electrical usage.

Yes, any home or business that is prone to power outages should have some kind of backup power source. There are many options of generators, with whole house and half house generator panels as well as a GenerLink™ which is an interconnection device that enables you to connect your portable generator directly to your home’s wiring system.

It is hard to say but in most cases there is a reduction in the electric bill due to the new installation, tighter connections, and balance of power. The amount of savings depends on your monthly electric bill.

As per the OESC a homeowner is able to install lights in their own home if no new wiring is needed. However, if you are installing a new ceiling, make sure the device box is rated to hold the weight of the ceiling fan. The code require ceiling fans to be mounted on special fan-rated boxes, which are made of metal or strong plastic and have deep-threaded holes for the mounting screws. The box must be mounted firmly, either by attaching it directly to a framing member or by using a fan-rated brace. This installation would be best performed by an electrician.

First make sure the switch is in the complete off position until it clicks in place. Now try to reset. If it still will not reset, then there is an issue which needs to be rectified. Consider this your red flag. Either there is a short, or an overload to that circuit.
