Electrical issues can’t always wait until the next business day to be handled. When there are electrical issues in the home, they can end up leading to major concerns like electrical shocks or a fire. At Master Electrical Service, we offer emergency services for electrical issues, so you don’t have to wait to get them fixed. Some of the Emergency Electrical Services we provide include the following.
Power outages often occur if there is a storm or an issue with a local transformer. However, if your house is the only one in the neighborhood that’s dark, it could be a much larger concern. Call the electric company to make sure the outage isn’t on their end. If it’s not, a call to an After hours electrician is needed to get the power back on.
Sometimes, the power outage will only be in part of the home. If one or two rooms have experienced a power outage, it’s likely that the circuit has tripped. Take a look at the electrical panel to see which one has tripped and flip it back to the on position. If it immediately trips again or this doesn’t restore power to the home, more help is needed.
Overloaded outlets can become hot or start to look brown or black. This can also happen if there is a sudden surge in power going through the outlet and a small electrical fire occurs. An outlet that looks burnt should not be used until it can be repaired or replaced, as it could end up catching on fire.
Sometimes, outlets may stop working. This can be a sign that it is damaged or that the wires aren’t connected securely. If an outlet stops working, it is important to have it repaired as soon as possible, as it could lead to the risk of shocks or be a sign of a much larger issue in the home. While this isn’t always an emergency situation, it can be in some instances. It’s always better to have it repaired or replaced right away to avoid anyone using it before it is fixed.
Flickering lights can happen if there is an issue with the bulb or the fixture. Replacing the bulb or having the fixture upgraded will solve the problem. If there are multiple lights flickering in the home, though, it’s an indication of a much larger electrical problem and one that needs to be fixed right away by an emergency electrician.
Breakers are designed to trip to protect the home against short circuits. When this does happen, flipping the breaker back on should solve the problem, as most of the time, it’s just a one-time issue. However, if the breaker immediately trips again or it happens frequently, it can be a sign that you are using more electricity than the system can handle. Emergency Electrical Services may be needed to prevent it from happening again.
Some electrical issues are easily fixed and will not reoccur. However, if the root of the issue isn’t solved, the problem will keep coming back again. This can be a sign that something more significant is wrong with the electrical system, so it’s never something that should be ignored. If electrical issues continue to occur, it’s time to call an After hours electrician to make sure it’s fixed properly.
The electrical panel is often located in the garage or a central part of the home, so it can be accessed as needed. If the circuit breaker starts to make odd noises, it’s a sign that there is something wrong that needs to be fixed immediately. Odd noises often happen if the electrical system gets overloaded and the breakers fail to trip. This can lead to the risk of shocks or an electrical fire. Immediately stop using any appliances, avoid turning anything on, and call for an emergency electrician to get help.
