Emergency Electrician 24 Hr
You may have wondered, what exactly is an electrical emergency, and how can an electrician help? An electrical emergency is anything that poses an imminent risk for an electrical fire. Additionally, in the case that household members or residents of a facility depend on electricity for medical devices, even a temporary power outage can become an electrical emergency, which is why our team of expert electricians is available 24/7. The following are some of the most common calls we get for electrical emergencies. In the case of an active electrical fire, always call 9-1-1 first.
An electrical blackout is often caused by a down power line or a problem with the transformer. When the power goes out, check with neighbors to find out if they are also experiencing an outage. If so, call your power company to request service as soon as possible.
If the power outage is only in your house, it may be due to an overloaded circuit or a number of other serious issues. Call an emergency electrician to investigate and get your power running again.
Circuit Breaker Buzzing
If you hear buzzing or popping coming from the circuit panel, or smell burning, this is an emergency. The circuit breakers are designed to “trip” or shut off the electricity when the circuits are overloaded. If this is not happening, your house is in danger. You should get an electrician out as soon as possible.
Electrical Burning Smell or Popping
The same is true for outlets. If you hear electrical popping, notice an electrical burning smell, the outlet is sparking, or the outlet has turned brown, this may mean that the outlet is about to catch fire. Unplug any appliances, don’t touch the outlet, and call an reputable electrician.
Check if other outlets around the house also have visible damage. Do not accept shortcuts from an electrician who is unwilling to fully investigate the problem. Your due diligence could save your home and your life.
