Common electrical emergencies that we attend in Cardiff and the surrounding areas include the following:
A power cut (sudden and complete loss of electrical power in your home) can often be an emergency due to the significant disruptions it causes, affecting lighting, heating, appliances, and essential systems.
Similar to a power cut, tripping of circuit breakers or fuses in your consumer unit can result in certain areas or appliances in your home being left without power. Again, if it’s a critical appliance that’s not getting any power, you may require an emergency electrician to fix the issue immediately.
The presence of a burning or overheating smell in your property is a critical warning sign of potential fire or electrical faults. This is considered an emergency due to the immediate safety concerns it raises. When we come across a burning smell, our emergency electricians conduct a thorough inspection, identify and eliminate the source of the smell, and ensure the safety of your home and its occupants.
Non-functional or damaged switches and sockets can be an emergency because they compromise safety and could potentially result in electrical fires if left unattended.
Unstable or flickering lighting can be an emergency as it is typically a sign of underlying wiring problems or imminent electrical issues.
Electric shocks may be a result of exposed wires or unsafe electrical conditions and as an emergency electrician, our first protocol would be to make the necessary repairs and eliminate the risk of electrical shocks.
The presence of outdated or damaged wiring can be an emergency as it poses fire and safety risks. Faulty wiring can lead to short circuits, electrical fires, or electric shock hazards. Although we wouldn’t perform a full house rewire as an emergency, we would certainly make it safe and ready for further investigation.
Electrical problems resulting from water exposure, such as leaks or flooding, can be hazardous and are thus considered an emergency. Water and electricity do not mix, and electrical faults caused by water can lead to fires or electric shock risks.
