Should you wait? Or should you call right now? Here's how to tell:
When numerous homes 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.
But when you're the only one without power, that's a sign something's failed on your end. If you turn the breakers and validated that you paid your electric costs this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You've got an issue only an experienced electrician can solve.
Never a good sign. Unplug everything attached to that outlet. Flip the breaker to shut off power to the outlet and call us immediately.
Older outlets are specifically prone to becoming fire threats. Loose screws, loose circuitry, rust, and worn metal all can trigger heat buildup. At the minimum, the outlet requires to be changed. You'll desire us to identify whether there are other problems in your system that could cause similar threats.
In some cases you'll see the outlet spark up. The spark will reoccur rapidly, but don't ignore it! One small trigger now can begin one deadly fire later.
That might be a tough one to catch, since most people don't communicate with their service panels very much on a day-to-day basis. However if you do occur to discover heat originating from your circuit box it is essential to call us immediately. Once again, that's is a fire waiting to occur.
Think it or not, this one generally isn't a difficult fix. It suggests a bad breaker or a loose wire. Often it's an indication of a far more serious issue. A professional requires to make that evaluation.
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 might sound more like a humming noise.
Regardless of how you perceive the noise, it is generally a sign of a breaker that's refusing to trip. Breakers are expected to trip when the circuit gets too hot. If the breaker is stopping working to do its job, then your circuitry is managing heat and power loads it was never indicated to deal with. Shut off all power and call us right away.
This implies among 3 things: your electrical system is getting overloaded, you have got a short circuit, or you have got a ground fault. Several aspects of your electrical system might have gone wrong to produce those problems.
The first is reasonably harmless, but it's a tip your system needs an upgrade. That is especially real in older homes, which aren't meant to run nearly as many electronics as we now rely on every day. The 2nd 2 are incredibly unsafe, and require attention right away.
