When numerous houses lose power, the issue is a blown transformer or downed power lines. That's for the utility company to work on, and there's not much we can do about it.
When you're the only one without power, that's an indication something's gone wrong on your end. If you turn the breakers and validated that you paid your electrical costs this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You have got an issue only a skilled electrical contractor can solve.
Never an excellent indication. Unplug whatever connected to that outlet. Flip the breaker to turn off power to the outlet and call us right away.

Believe it or not, this one typically isn't a hard repair. It's a sign of a bad breaker or a loose wire. In some cases it's a sign of a far more severe issue. A professional needs to make that assessment.
Buzzing sounds from the breaker box are another sign of a loose wire or a bad breaker that can trigger a fire. To some people, that might sound more like a humming sound.
Despite how you perceive the noise, it is typically a sign of a breaker that's refusing to trip. When the circuit overheats, Breakers are supposed to trip. Your circuitry is dealing with heat and power loads it was never meant to deal with if the breaker is stopping working to do its task. Shut off all power and call us immediately.
