Sometimes it is hard to know when you need to call an emergency electrician. It may seem like the problem can wait, or the electrical issue doesn’t seem alarming. However, if your home or business will experience damage unless immediate steps are taken, it is time to call an emergency electrician

When to call an emergency electrician

It is sometimes hard to determine whether you have a general electrical maintenance issue or an electrical emergency. So when it comes to electrical emergencies, there are some common signs to watch out for:

Loss of power

If you are the only home on your street that has lost power, it’s time to call an emergency electrician. There are a variety of issues that cause a power loss. If a flick of the circuit board doesn’t restore your power, call your local emergency electrician for assistance.

Storm damage

Our Victorian weather can be wild! If you experienced downed electrical due to a storm, contact an emergency electrician in your area. 

Sparks or smoke

If sparks or smoke are coming out of your electrical appliances or outlets, call a Torquay emergency electrician immediately! If it is safe to do so, turn off the power to the devices or outlets and leave the premise. 

Burnt light switches and outlets

Burnt looking or discolouration on your light switches and outlets should be examined immediately by a professional electrician. If not taken care of properly, they could spark a fire. Call your local emergency electrician in Ocean Grove to assess your discoloured outlets and light switches.

And if your outlets or light switches are warm but have no signs of discolouration or burning on the outside, they should still be checked out by a licensed electrician. Warm outlets and light switches are a sign they could be overheating. Call an electrician and schedule an appointment to have them checked out. 

Blown fuses

It isn’t unusual for breakers to need a reset once in a while. However, contact your local emergency electrician, Smart Green Electrical, if you need a fuse box repair on short notice.
