Common Reasons to Call Emergency Residential Electrical Services

by Dahan Electric Local Electrical Contractors

If you have an electrical problem in your house, you should have it fixed as quickly as possible as minor issues can quickly escalate into major (and costly) problems.

This is where an electrical contractor comes in.

Home electrical contractors are acquainted with residential electrical issues and have the training to deliver the services needed to keep households safe and functional.

Nobody wants to call emergency electrical services, but when it is necessary, it is usually for one of these three reasons:

Tripped Breaker

A circuit breaker trips and shuts off the flow of electricity in your home when the electricity demand exceeds the capacity of the circuit. Plugging in too many appliances, for example, can trip the circuit breaker and plunge a specific area of your home into darkness.

A short circuit or ground fault could also cause your circuit breaker to trip. These are more serious issues that require emergency attention.

Call an emergency electrical contractor right away to troubleshoot any problems with your circuit box and quickly restore power to your home.

Sudden Blackout

It can be very unsettling to have your entire house suddenly go dark.

When there is a total blackout, the first thing you should do is check with your neighbors to see if you are the only one without power. If it seems like every house on your street is dark, this is a problem that only your electrical company can solve—therefore, calling them is the best thing you can do.

However, if your home is the only one in your neighborhood that has mysteriously lost power, you should contact a local electrical contractor as soon as possible.

Flickering Lights

Flickering lights may look like a minor inconvenience on the surface, but they can indicate a more serious problem with your electrical system.

If you see flickering lights or temporary power outages, contact an electrical contractor immediately to get the situation under control. This is critical for the safety of your family and the prevention of more serious problems.


Electrical problems can be unexpected and frightening, but you can handle any situation if you know when to call an emergency electrical contractor.
