Distance and traffic permitting, we do our best to make it to your area within one hour. We don't charge extra simply because you have an emergency situation.
Should you wait? Or should you call right away? Here's how to tell:
When numerous houses lose power, the problem is a blown transformer or downed power lines. That's for the energy 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 turn the breakers and confirmed that you paid your electrical expense this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You have got an issue only a skilled electrician can solve.
Never a great indication. Disconnect whatever connected to that outlet. Turn the breaker to switch off power to the outlet and call us immediately.
Older outlets are particularly susceptible to becoming fire dangers. Loose screws, loose circuitry, rust, and used metal all can cause heat accumulation. At the very least, the outlet needs to be replaced. You'll want us to identify whether there are other problems in your system that could trigger comparable threats.
Sometimes you'll see the outlet trigger up. The trigger will come and go quickly, but don't ignore it! One small spark now can begin one deadly fire later.
That might be a difficult one to capture, due to most people don't connect with their service panels quite on a day-to-day basis. If you do occur to discover heat emanating from your service panel it's crucial to call us right away. Again, that's is a fire waiting to occur.
Think it or not, this one usually isn't a hard fix. It suggests a bad breaker or a loose wire. In some cases it's an indication of a far more major issue. A professional requires to make that assessment.
Buzzing noises from the breaker box are another sign of a loose wire or a bad breaker that can trigger a fire. To some people, that may sound more like a humming noise.
Regardless of how you perceive the sound, it is normally a sign of a breaker that's declining to trip. Breakers are supposed to trip when the circuit overheats. Your wiring is managing heat and power loads it was never suggested to manage if the breaker is stopping working to do its task. Shut off all power and call us right away.
This suggests among three things: your electrical system is getting overloaded, you have got a short circuit, or you have got a ground fault. A number of components of your electrical system may have gone wrong to produce those issues.
The first is reasonably harmless, but it's a hint your system requires an upgrade. That is specifically real in older homes, which aren't suggested to run almost as many electronic devices as we now rely on every day. The 2nd two are incredibly hazardous, and need attention right now.
