Distance and traffic allowing, we do our best to make it to your location within one hour. Likewise, we don't charge extra just because you have an emergency.
Should you wait? Or should you call right away? Here's how to tell:
When numerous homes lose power, the issue is a blown transformer or downed power lines. That's for the utility business 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 verified that you paid your electrical expense this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You've got a problem only a skilled electrician can fix.
Never an excellent indication. Disconnect whatever attached to that outlet. Flip the breaker to turn off power to the outlet and call us right now.
Older outlets are particularly vulnerable to ending up being fire threats. Loose screws, loose circuitry, rust, and used metal all can cause heat buildup. At the minimum, the outlet needs to be replaced. You'll want us to figure out whether there are other issues in your system that could trigger similar hazards.
Often you'll see the outlet trigger up. The trigger will reoccur quickly, however don't ignore it! One small spark now can begin one lethal fire later.
That might be a difficult one to capture, since most people do not connect with their service panels very much on a daily basis. However if you do occur to observe heat emanating from your service panel it is essential to call us right away. Again, that's is a fire waiting to take place.
Think it or not, this one generally isn't a hard fix. It's a sign of a loose wire or a bad breaker. But sometimes it signifies a far more severe problem. A professional needs to make that assessment.
Buzzing sounds from the breaker box are another indication of a loose wire or a bad breaker that can trigger a fire. To some individuals, that may sound more like a humming noise.
Regardless of how you view the noise, it is generally a sign of a breaker that's declining to trip. Breakers are expected to trip when the circuit overheats. Your wiring is handling heat and power loads it was never indicated to handle if the breaker is failing to do its job. Shut down all power and call us right now.
This indicates one of 3 things: your electrical system is getting overloaded, you've got a short circuit, or you've got a ground fault. A number of components of your electrical system might have failed to produce those problems.
The very first is reasonably safe, however it's a tip your system needs an upgrade. That is especially true in older houses, which aren't indicated to run nearly as many electronics as we now rely on every day. The second two are extremely dangerous, and require attention right away.
