Nobody is happy to make the phone call for emergency electrical services. The power goes out and your family is stuck in the dark, or you’re left to suffer in the sweltering summer heat. We are all accustomed to having electricity available all the time to meet all of our needs. Consequently, we tend to panic when we experience an outage. Whether a home loses some or all power, the sudden loss of light, entertainment devices, or air conditioning sends many people into a tailspin.
Here are the three most common reasons people grab their cell phones to call for emergency electrical services:
1. A tripped circuit breaker
Overloading a circuit by demanding too much electricity at once will trip the circuit breaker. Hence, a portion of the home will lose power. Most people know how to check their breaker box and reset the tripped circuit. However, we do get calls from people who are unaware of how their breaker box works. The circumstance that caused the circuit to trip may require the attention of an electrician so as to prevent it from happening again.
2. Sudden blackout
A full loss of power is deeply concerning for most people. When this happens to you, the first thing to do is check with your neighbors. Is your whole street without power? If so, you should call the power company. Almost always, there is nothing an electrician can do to restore your home’s power in this situation. If it’s just you, double check that you paid your electric bill and then call for emergency electrical services.
3. On again, off again requires emergency electrical services
Flickering lights might appear to be a minor nuisance, it can indicate a major electrical problem lurking inside your home. If power comes and goes to your lights or other electrical devices, it’s important to call an electrician right away. As a result, you are ensuring your family’s safety.
The thing to remember about electrical issues is that there is always a concern for safety. Faulty wiring can cause electric shocks or house fires. Any doubt about your home’s electrical system integrity should be taken seriously. Don’t hesitate to call for emergency electrical services. It is better to have an electrician quickly solve a small problem, than to let a big problem become a catastrophe.
