Should you wait? Or should you call immediately? Here's how to tell:
When many houses lose power, the issue is a blown transformer or downed power lines. That's for the utility company to deal with, and there's not much we can do about it.
When you're the only one without power, that's a sign something's gone wrong on your end. If you flip the breakers and verified that you paid your electrical bill this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You have got a problem only a skilled electrical contractor can resolve.
Never a good indication. Disconnect whatever connected to that outlet. Turn the breaker to switch off power to the outlet and call us immediately.

Think it or not, this one usually isn't a difficult repair. It suggests a bad breaker or a loose wire. In some cases it's an indication of a far more serious problem. A specialist requires to make that assessment.
Buzzing sounds from the breaker box are another sign of a loose wire or a bad breaker that can cause a fire. To some individuals, that may sound more like a humming sound.

This means among three things: your electrical system is getting overloaded, you've got a short circuit, or you've got a ground fault. Numerous elements of your electrical system might have failed to produce those issues.
