Types Of Electrical Emergencies

You may have an electrical issue arise and not be sure if it’s considered an emergency situation or something you can make an appointment for and wait. It’s best to consult with us if you’re not sure, as we can assess the situation and let you know if it should be addressed immediately or if it can wait until a scheduled time.

The following are some electrical emergencies that should be addressed as soon as possible:

  • You Smell Something Burning

If you smell something burning, especially like wires burning, conduct a brief investigation to pinpoint the source. Check your outlets, the breaker box, and your appliances. If smoke detectors are going off, consider it an electrical emergency and contact us for an assessment.

  • Power Shuts Off

It’s common to lose power during the fury of Mother Nature. However, if you suddenly find yourself without power, it might indicate a dangerous problem with your circuit breaker that requires urgent attention.

  • Repeated Circuit Breaker Tripping

If your circuit breaker keeps tripping off, this could be cause for alarm. It could be due to a damaged breaker box, a hot wire that keeps touching the ground, or one of your appliances could be short-circuiting.

There Is A Buzzing Sound In The Circuit Breaker Box

Overloaded circuit breakers tend to cause a loud buzzing sound. A circuit breaker that’s overloaded can cause the circuit wiring to get hot enough to start a fire.

  • Lights Flickering

If your lights are flickering, it may indicate the need for further assessment. A minor issue could simply be an aging switch or a faulty lightbulb. However, if the lights are flickering consistently, it could mean that there is a problem with the wiring or too much voltage is coming through the circuit breaker.

  • An Electric Shock Is Felt

If you or another person experiences an electric shock when interacting with electrical appliances or outlets, it could indicate an electrical emergency.

  • Smoke Exiting Outlet

If you see smoke coming out of an outlet, this could be an electrical emergency. There are several reasons an outlet would have smoke, such as the build up of debris that can become hot and start a fire. It could also stem from loose wiring or loose plugs.

  • Wet Circuit Breaker

Electrocution happens when electricity and water mix. If moisture gets into your electrical panel, it can lead to corrosion over time. This corrosion not only damages parts of the panel but also poses a fire hazard.
