Residential and Commercial Electrical Emergencies
Most electrical problems can wait a day or two before being addressed by an electrician. Here are a few electrical emergencies that should be handled as soon as possible.
- Appliance Failure: The electrical failure of a major appliance or its circuit may necessitate immediate repairs. It's unsafe to be without air conditioning in the Las Vegas heat, and a malfunctioning refrigerator circuit can cause your food to spoil.
- Power Outage: If your power goes out, check to see whether the houses around you have power. If your home is the only one without power, have an electrician visit your home as soon as possible.
- Electrical Fire: Faulty wiring can cause your home to catch fire. If this happens to you, leave your home immediately, call 911, and wait for the fire department to stabilize the situation before calling your electrician.
- Blown Fuses: Blown fuses are typically the result of a circuit that is using up too much electrical current. If your fuses blow out on a regular basis, you may be in need of the services of an emergency electrician. Your One Hour electrician can rewire your fuses and circuit breaker, ensuring that your system is able to handle your daily requirements.
- Flickering Lights: If you notice that your lights flicker when you turn on one or more of your appliances, this could be a sign that it is time to call an emergency electrician. Oftentimes, electrical appliances use up a large amount of electrical current. To prevent a blown fuse or temporary power outage in your home, you may want to have your electrician wire dedicated circuits for your appliances.
- Faulty Outlets: Over time, the electrical outlets in your home may begin to experience problems. For example, you may notice that your outlets are blackened near their switch plates, or that they emit a sensation of warmth. In addition, you may find that your outlets spark when you plug a cord into the socket. At the first sign of a problem with any of your outlets, you should be sure to call a 24/7 emergency electrician.
Waiting for the Electrician
It's best to leave significant electrical repairs to your electrician. However, there are a few things you can do while you wait.
- Turn Off Electrical Power: If one of your outlets is sparking or smoking, shut off the corresponding circuit breaker. If there are multiple problems, you might turn off the main disconnect.
