Got an Electrical Emergency? Don’t Delay!
Few home service emergencies are as truly urgent as severe electrical problems. Remember, electricity issues are not something you can simply take a DIY approach to. Attempting to rake care of an electrical malfunction on your own can result in fires and shocking if you’re not careful—not to mention the fact that amateur electric work usually just makes your problem worse in the long run. The next time you are dealing with an electrical emergency, call our electricians at Blanton’s. We’ll have your lights on and your power running again ASAP.
The biggest warning signs of an electrical emergency are:
- Frayed Wires: Over time, it is not uncommon for your electrical wires to become frayed and damaged, especially if rodents have chewed on them. If you see frayed electrical wires in your home, do not attempt to fix the problem on your own. Damaged wires can result in serious harm if you approach them the wrong way, so stay away and call a professional if you ever get your wires crossed.
- Switches that Shock: If you feel a slight shock when you flip one of your electrical switches, it means you’ve probably got some damaged wires on your hands. As we established above, this is already a dangerous issue, but it could also be a sign your system is on the verge of short circuiting. Remove any devices plugged into your shocking switch if this happens. If the problem continues after this, call an electrician to take care of it for you.
- Tripped Breakers & Fuses: Your circuit breaker/fuse box will trip anytime your electrical system becomes overloaded. This may occur because of reasons we alluded to above, such as severe storms and rolling blackouts due to heat. However, your circuit breaker should not trip often. If this is happening frequently in your own, you may be drawing too much power to a single fuse. Make sure you are using a safe amount of power for one outlet, and if your problem persists, give our electrical experts at Blanton’s a call.
- Smoking Appliances or Electrical Boards: They say where there’s smoke, there’s fire. This is not always true in your electrical system, but if you notice an electrical appliance or board smoking, a fire may not be far behind. Turn off your power at once if this occurs in your home and call for emergency electrical assistance as soon as possible.
- Discolored Outlets: Discolored outlets or switches are another sign of faulty wiring. If you find that the color in your outlets has faded, it may be due to short circuiting and “arcing,” which means a small fire has occurred. When you call Blanton’s for emergency electrical service in Fayetteville and surrounding areas, we can assess the condition of your outlets and switches, replacing them as necessary and rewiring them if need be.
- Flickering Lights: Those horror movie-like flickering lights in your home are indeed the bad omen you probably suspect they are. If you find that your lights frequently flicker or dim when your electrical appliances are in use, it means that your switches are overloaded, and you need to use less power/and or call an electrician for an emergency repair.
- The Smell of Burning: Again, we return to electrical fires. Never ignore a burning smell coming from your electrical equipment, as it may be telling you that some component of your system is seriously malfunctioning. Watch out for that acrid smell of electrical burns, and call an electrician right away if you detect this scent in your home.
