Some electrical issues are bigger than others. You might solve the problem by flipping a switch or decide that you’re able to wait to call an electrician tomorrow. However, if you find yourself experiencing one of those bigger electrical problems, you won’t be able to wait for an electrician to come the next morning. That kind of immediate service falls under the umbrella of emergency electrical services. Here are a few examples of what electrical problems would require emergency electrical services:

  • Startling power outage: If you are unable to determine the cause of your sudden, unexpected power outage and you are unable to get the power back on and have ruled out a power outage affecting a larger area, call for an emergency electrician to diagnose and solve the problem.

  • Exposed wires: Finding exposed wires is definitely a serious problem. Exposed wires can result in fires, electrocution, or electrical shocks. Because of these risks, you shouldn’t delay calling an electrician and getting the problem fixed right away.
  • Storm damage: If you’re experiencing electrical problems because of a storm, don’t attempt to fix your electrical system by yourself. An emergency electrician will be able to take the proper precautions and procedures to getting everything back to normal.
  • Burning smells: Smelling burnt plastic isn’t a good sign. This could mean that your electrical system is overheating, and an electrical fire could flare up at any moment.

This list is by no means exhaustive, so if you experience any of these problems or any other issues that are concerning, our team at Buckingham Electric Inc. can talk you through your problem and determine what kind of electrical service is needed.
