When to Call for Emergency Electrical Services
Your home’s electrical system is complex and anything can go wrong. Here are the most common reasons you may need an emergency electrical contractor
- Outlet Overload: Too much load on an outlet will cause it to heat up and possibly catch fire. If you have an overloaded outlet, call for help immediately.
- Power Outage: Sometimes, power outages are caused by electrical storms that knock out a substation, while other times, the issue is within your home’s electrical system. If you can’t diagnose the problem, call for help and let a professional handle it.
- Sparks: If you have an outlet or switch that sparks when you plug in a device, it’s a sign that something is wrong and needs immediate attention. Sparking outlets can lead to electrical fires and electrocution.
Do you Need an Outlet Upgrade?
Are your outlets safe? Many homes over 50 years old don’t have outlets capable of handling today’s electrical loads or protecting users from shock. That’s why you need to consider a GFCI outlet upgrade. Here are the advantages.
- GFCI Outlets Prevent Shocks: The top advantage to a ground fault circuit interrupter is that it prevents shocks and electrocution by using a built-in sensor to monitor the flow of electricity and shutting it off when it detects a problem.
- GFCI Outlets Prevent Fire: When an electrical flow leaves a circuit, it can cause a fire. GFCI outlets guard against this, making your home and your family safer.
- GFCI Outlets Protect Devices: When electrical current leaks into your appliances or devices, it can cause damage and ultimate failure. GFCI outlets protect your expensive appliances and devices from leakage and degradation.
