When should you call an emergency electrician?
It can be difficult to decide whether to call an emergency electrician especially if it’s out of normal working hours and you can’t decide whether to wait till later and call within working hours.
The most obvious reason people often wait till it’s within the normal 9 – 5pm working hours is cost. Electricians charge more for emergency call outs so waiting longer to save money is often the first thing people think about.
Our advice at Smoothe Consulting is to call an emergency electrician straight away if you think the problem could be dangerous. It’s really not worth risking it to save money as the consequences could be deadly.
We want people to know how to determine whether the problem could be dangerous so we’ve decided to create this blog post to help.
How can you tell if it’s dangerous?
If there’s smoke, sparks or noticeable damage to wires it’s best to contact an emergency electrician straight away. It may cost a bit more but in return the electrician will more than often be with you within an hour if you choose local electricians and will fix the problem quickly. This means less risk to yourself and your family’s safety when dealing with domestic electrics. It also saves you the hassle of trying to organise something within the standard 9 – 5 working hours when like most people you’ll probably be busy enough with your own work.
