Common Electrical Emergencies
For many homeowners, it can be difficult to determine what qualifies as an electrical emergency. As a rule of thumb, it’s usually better to lean towards caution—if you think it might be an emergency, call the electricians at Safe and Sound Electric, and we can help you determine just how big of an emergency your situation might be.
However, there are a few electrical issues that you should always consider to an electrical emergency because they pose a significant risk to your home and your family.
Here are some of the most common reasons homeowners need an emergency electrician:
Smoke or Burn Marks on an Outlet
If you notice smoke coming from your outlet or black or brown scorch marks radiating from the receptacles, it could indicate that you have a potentially serious issue. These signs usually mean your outlet is overloaded, which could potentially lead to a fire.
Your first step should be to shut off power to that outlet, while also checking other outlets for smoke or burning marks. Before you touch the outlet, contact the experts at Safe and Sound Electric, we will come out to correct the problem, including any underlying issues.
Noises Coming from Breaker Panel
Your circuit breaker is a safety feature that is designed to cut power to any outlet or device that draws too much power. When it is working, the breaker will “trip” or flip off. However, if your circuit breaker is malfunctioning, it may start to make a buzzing or a humming noise, usually when there is something preventing the breaker from tripping.
If your breaker panel is making these noises, it is a serious problem and you need to contact your emergency electrician immediately. Your panel could be a fire or electrocution hazard and need to have the problem corrected as soon as possible.
Any burning smells in your home should be taken seriously because it means that you might be at imminent risk of fire. If the burning smell is metallic or plastic, there’s a good chance the smell is coming from your home’s electrical system.
Burning smells are an emergency, and you should immediately turn off the power to your home before calling an emergency electrician. If the smell gets worse, don’t hesitate to call 911 first.
Sudden Power Loss
When your entire neighborhood or city street loses power, it usually has something to do with your power company. However, when your home is the only one to go dark, it probably means that there’s a problem with the electricity in your home. If your power goes out, there is no storm, and you have paid your utility bill, then you should call Safe and Sound Electric for emergency service.
While it is possible that it may still be an issue with your power company, there is a much higher chance that the problem is in your home’s electrical system. Frayed wiring, loose connections, or a damaged electrical panel could all be causing your power loss. All of these issues merit emergency attention.
