How to know if you need emergency electricians? It’s never a good time to be stuck without electricity. Perhaps you have a deadline that you can’t afford to miss? Or maybe you’re hosting a dinner party that’s been arranged months in advance?
In these situations, you’ll be only too grateful that you have a reliable emergency electrician on speed dial. An emergency electrician will be able to come to your place and sort out your electricity issue any time of the day. Not only is it a matter of convenience, but by responding as soon as possible to an electricity-related problem, you can prevent possible further damage from happening. So, it can actually work out cheaper to contact an after hours electrician than to wait before you contact your electrician in the Sunshine Coast during traditional business hours.
An emergency electrician will be able to come to your property, often without an appointment, to sort out an electrical issue that has recently appeared. Most electrical companies that offer this service have emergency electricians who are available after hours to help with domestic or commercial electrical issues.
When should you call an emergency electrician?
Whenever you’re dealing with a problem related to your power supply or an electrical appliance, it’s better to play it safe and err on the side of caution. Here are examples of some electrical problems for which you will want to phone an emergency electrician:
Sparks near a power outlet
Humming or buzzing sound coming from your switchboard
Smoke coming from your power outlets
Burning smell coming from your power outlets
Choosing the right emergency electrician for your job
Whenever you need to call out an emergency electrician, it’s best to choose an electrical company that offers various services instead of just a single service area. In addition to services offered, also consider how many years the company has been in operation. In fact, it’s also a good idea to ask about the average number of years of experience that their emergency electricians have.
If they have the necessary qualifications and experience, it’s also recommended that you ask if you can read some testimonials. Alternatively, you can do your own quick search online to find out more about what other customers’ experience was when working with the company. This will give you a good indication if the overall experience was satisfying.
Here are some extra questions you can ask potential electricians as you’re trying to choose which electrician to use for emergency situations:
Are your electricians police cleared?
Are you a member of any industry associations?
Do you outsource any of your electrical work?
Are there any extra fees for emergency services?
Do you charge an hourly or fixed rate?
Do you offer an estimate or a free quote for your electrical services?
What should you do while you wait for your emergency electrician?
If there’s already a fire, call the fire department and ensure that all the occupants get to safety. Otherwise, after you’ve contacted your emergency electrician, the following are a few important things that you should do while you wait:
Stay calm while keeping your eyes, ears, and nose open for any buzzing or humming sounds, smoke, or burning smells
Shut off the power at your main circuit breaker
If it’s safe to do so, unplug all your electrical appliances
Remove any obstacles from the area where the emergency electrician needs to work
