Safety is Paramount during Emergency Electrical Repair – How To Deal With Electrical Emergencies
Electrical wiring and the current that flows through it is quite sophisticated and very dangerous when it gets out of control.

Complex wiring systems are common in any building or outdoor facility. Things can go wrong in a hurry, although situations can be heralded by early warnings that don’t seem important at the time. Experience as an emergency electrical contractor has provided a list of typical electrical situations needing resolved quickly, including:
Exposed conductors – Safety standards for electrical conductors include guidelines for the amount of load they can carry. Insulation guards against failing when normal operations raise the temperature. Putting too much demand on the conductors can damage the insulation. Circuit parts and electrical conductors should be suitably enclosed, insulated, guarded, or isolated when they are in a location where a person could accidentally come in contact with them.
Loose wiring – Wires must be put together and secured properly. Gaps and other types of improper wiring open the door to shock or fire. Unless you know what you are doing, call an expert to take care of rewiring needs.
Flickering lights – Loose connections in the neutral and breaker cause dimming or flickering lights. The circuit may also heat up, tripping the breaker. Our professionals at Santa Rosa Electricians will test, repair, or replace the items causing the problem.
Sparking wires or appliances – Bare wires touch each other and cause a short circuit, which builds heat and causes sparks. The sparks you see from the outlet or appliance are likely happening elsewhere. Sparks behind the wall cause fires that may not be noticed until they have built up in strength. An electrician will check and fix the problem. If you detect a burning odor from any of your appliances or they are constantly tripping the circuit, blowing a fuse, or working sluggishly, contact us immediately — an expert electrician must evaluate the situation to prevent further damage to your electrical system.
Damaged transformers – Electrical outages are often due to damaged transformers. Businesses and residential areas may receive power from different transformers than others in their area. This leads to some homes and buildings having electricity while nearby structures have none. An electrician can verify any damage to your circuit or meter box and identify whether it is safe to hook up a generator until power is restored.
Any of the above situations lead to dangerous, expensive incidents when they are not taken care of immediately. Trying to take care of an electrical emergency without the qualifications to do so can damage wiring and appliances further, start an electrical fire, or electrocute you. Like any emergency, this type of situation happens at any given moment. We offer 24/7 electrical repair to our customers because we know emergencies occur around the clock.
