What Is Considered an Electrical Emergency?

The best way to figure out if you are dealing with an electrical emergency is to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is your electrical problem consistent?
  • Is your electrical issue affecting major household appliances, more than one circuit, breaker, or multiple electrical systems?
  • Do you feel your family or home is in danger?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, please do not hesitate to call the team at McCormick Electrical Services to determine if you need to schedule your emergency electrical appointment. Electrical issues can be a major hazard that can not only destroy your possessions, but they can also be lethal.

If you are still unsure whether or not you are dealing with an electrical emergency in South Bend, our licensed electricians have 25+ years of experience and can provide you with peace of mind if your situation doesn’t qualify as an electrical emergency.

How to Tell You Need Emergency Electrical Repairs

Today, we rely on our electrical systems for nearly everything—from providing us with the necessary light to see to warming our food, from heating and cooling the air to powering our devices. Therefore, when something causes disruption to your electricity, it could put the safety of your family and your home at risk.

If you are currently experiencing any of the following, call for same-day electrical repairs in South Bend immediately:

  • Electrical outlets and/or switches do not work: This could be due to a wiring issue. It is extremely important you do not try to repair this yourself. Trust a licensed professional to conduct it instead.
  • Flickering lights: Although a common horror trope, they could actually lead to frightful property damage. While it is most often due to bulbs needing to be replaced, there is a chance that flickering lights are caused by poor or loose connections within your light fixtures or wiring.
  • Sparks or a popping sound from an outlet: Sparks are never a good sign when you touch or plug in an appliance. This is likely due to a problem with the circuit or the outlet. Similarly, you shouldn’t hear popping sounds when powering up any devices. These sounds could be the result of loose or faulty wiring. In either case, it is important to consult an electrician for prompt emergency repairs.
  • Burning smell: In the event you ever smell burning coming from your electrical system, or the smell of burning plastic, immediately shut off your electricity and call our number for quick emergency service.
  • Old wiring: If you live or work in an older building, it could have aluminum wiring. Unfortunately, it is susceptible to temperature fluctuations, which make it expand and contract. The movement within the wiring can make them loose, and suddenly you’re dealing with a serious fire hazard. We will arrive and help you replace your old wiring with safer copper wiring.
  • Warm electrical panel: It’s extremely important to ensure that your electrical panel is equipped with proper breaker fuses. An improper one could cause overloading, melting, or an electrical fire. One way to check for this is to see whether your electrical panel is hot to touch; if it is, it’s usually a sure sign something is amiss with your electrical system.
  • Power outage or power surge: If you’re without power, do not try to restore it yourself. Contact an experienced electrician to safely assess the issue and conduct any necessary repairs.

Commonly Asked Questions

How can I prevent electrical emergencies?

To prevent electrical emergencies, make sure to schedule regular electrical inspections, avoid overloading circuits, and never ignore warning signs such as flickering lights or burning smells.

What should I do if I experience a power outage?

In case of a power outage, first check if the outage is limited to your property. If it's a widespread outage, contact your utility provider. If it's just your property, check the circuit breakers and call an electrician if needed.

Can I attempt to fix electrical issues myself?

It's highly recommended to avoid attempting to fix electrical issues yourself, especially during emergencies. DIY electrical work can be dangerous and may lead to further damage or injuries. Always rely on professional electricians for repairs.

What are the dangers of ignoring electrical problems?

Ignoring electrical problems can lead to serious consequences such as electrical fires, electrocution, or damage to appliances. It's crucial to address any electrical issues promptly to ensure the safety of your property and loved ones.

How do I know if my home has outdated wiring?

Signs of outdated wiring include frequent circuit breaker trips, flickering lights, burning smells, or visibly old wiring. If you suspect outdated wiring, it's best to have a professional electrician inspect and upgrade the wiring to prevent hazards.
