Should you wait? Or should you call right now? Here's how to inform:
When lots of homes lose power, the issue is a blown transformer or downed power lines. That's for the utility business to work on, and there's not much we can do about it.
When you're the just one without power, that's a sign something's gone wrong on your end. If you flip the breakers and validated that you paid your electrical bill this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You've got an issue just an experienced electrician can fix.
Never a great sign. Disconnect whatever attached to that outlet. Turn the breaker to turn off power to the outlet and call us right now.

Buzzing noises from the breaker box are another indication of a loose wire or a bad breaker that can cause a fire. To some people, that may sound more like a humming noise.
Despite how you perceive the sound, it is typically an indication of a breaker that's refusing to trip. When the circuit gets too hot, Breakers are supposed to trip. If the breaker is stopping working to do its task, then your circuitry is dealing with heat and power loads it was never indicated to handle. Shut down all power and call us immediately.
This suggests one of 3 things: your electrical system is getting overloaded, you have got a short circuit, or you have got a ground fault. Numerous elements of your electrical system might have failed to produce those problems.
The very first is relatively safe, but it's a hint your system needs an upgrade. That is especially true in older houses, which aren't meant to run nearly as lots of electronics as we now count on every day. The second two are extremely harmful, and require attention right away.
