Need an emergency electrician? We are 24/7 electrical contractors who can come out to your place even in the middle of the night if you have an emergency situation with your electricity. No one likes to be without lighting or the ability to boil up the kettle for a much needed cuppa. However, not all blackouts constitute an emergency.
If you need a 24 hour electrician in the Perth, WA area, call and tell us what the problem is. We can have someone to your place quickly to ensure your home and family all remain safe. If it is an emergency that will take a long time to fix, we may be able to get you back on the grid temporarily until daylight, when it is much easier to work on this kind of repair where good light is essential.
So what is an emergency?
- If you see sparks coming from anywhere - except your wood burning fireplace
- If you have lost all power and no one else in the street is affected.
- If power lines have come down on your property.
- If you suspect there are live wires exposed in or around your home
- If there is smoke coming from an electrical connection such as a power point
- If lights are flickering in the breaker panel
Certain problems with power can be an emergency to some people, but not others. For instance, if your power went off during a heatwave and you are a senior citizen or if you have a new-born baby in the house, it could be an emergency because babies and older people are much more affected by heat than others, and are less able to do something about it, such as go to the mall where it’s cooler.
To ensure you are able to contact emergency electricians when you need them, keep the phone number handy – and make sure you also have a land-line because if your mobile phone is out of power you won’t be able to recharge it without electricity.
It’s important to turn off the power at the box rather than touch any power point that is smoking or has sparked. Never touch live wires or cords that have burned plastic around the wires. Contact our electricians as soon as possible when there is an emergency or even if you are not sure whether it is or not. It is far better to be safe than sorry and the electrician will usually be able to give you good advice on how to proceed or whether they need to come out immediately or not.
Speaking to an electrician will give you peace of mind and ensure you get quick service the next morning if they don’t need to come out straight away.
