A broken ceiling fan can certainly feel like an emergency during a sweltering summer, but it’s likely that you can wait until morning to call out for assistance. When it comes to determining if a repair is a true emergency, look for these signs:

  • Burnt smells
  • Flickering lights
  • Smoke
  • Hot switchboard
  • Carbon monoxide detection
  • Loss of electricity

If any of these happen, call out for help ASAP.
