Emergency Electrician Services & Repairs
If you find yourself looking for an emergency electrician, your day probably didn’t go as planned. Maybe you noticed soot on one of your electrical outlets. Perhaps one spit out sparks when you tried to plug something into it. Maybe you lost power in part of your house, and resetting your circuit breakers didn’t help.
Whatever the case, an electrical emergency is something no one wants to deal with. Recognizing that you need prompt assistance is an excellent start.
Mr. Electric has emergency electricians ready to respond to urgent electrical problems day and night. Call (844) 866-1367 to connect with your local emergency electrician.
When to Know You Need Emergency Electrical Services
People tend to struggle when deciding whether to call an emergency electrician. Sometimes they aren’t sure if they are dealing with a genuine emergency.
Here are some of the most common problems emergency electricians are called out to handle:
- An unidentified burning smell in the house
- An electrical switch or outlet is hot to the touch
- A circuit breaker tripping repeatedly
- Lights flickering
- A buzzing noise from an outlet or switch
- Someone receiving an electrical shock
- A partial, sustained power loss in the house
- Wet electrical panel
Mr. Electric encourages customers to call for emergency electrician service at the first sign of trouble. If the issue occurs at night, many times, it’s not a good idea to wait until the morning to seek help.
Because unresolved electrical emergencies can start fires, don’t delay in calling for assistance with your concerns and call for a 24 hour electrician. When it comes to electricity, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Emergency Electrician Cost
Cost is another common reason many people hesitate to call an emergency electrician. People are worried about what their bill is going to look like after their emergency is resolved.
Every situation is unique, so we can’t give you a flat price for electrical emergency appointments. However, we can share with you the factors that influence emergency electrician cost:
- Location – Each Mr. Electric is independently owned, and each owner sets individual rates. Ask about rates before you agree to have emergency service provided. You might find the cost to be very affordable.
- Time – Your electrician’s time is usually the most expensive component of any bill. Many electricians charge a flat trip fee for emergency calls. Most also charge a higher rate for their first hour than subsequent hours.
- Expertise & Certifications – The more highly trained your electrician is, the more they can charge you.
- Parts – The parts required to resolve your electrical emergency will also play a part in calculating cost. For example, replacing one faulty circuit breaker costs far less than replacing a whole electrical panel.
- Distance – How far your electrician must travel to serve your needs can influence the price of emergency service.
Can I Do Electrical Repairs on My Own?
Most of the time, electrical work is best left to professionals. This is doubly true when it comes to emergency electrical repairs. When something has already gone wrong, any mistakes made during the repair process increase the likelihood of serious problems like electrical fires and electrocution.
