24 Hour Electricians
4 of many Electrical Emergencies That Require 24 Hour Electricians
1. Over Age Panels
Electrical panels lose their ability to conduct electricity efficiently over time. If your panel overheats, the plastic and metal comprising it can crack, warp and melt. Without a functional electrical panel, nothing in your home that requires electricity will work. Millions of older homes in the US were built before the 1970s, when the average electrical power needed about 60-amp electrical service.
Today the average home needs at least 150 amps to handle our modern day conveniences. The more you stress your over-aged electrical panel, the more likely it is to overheat which can leave you and your home open to dangerous shocks and electrical fires.
If you notice a burning odor, a popping sound, or any warping or discoloration of your electrical panel, do not touch it – these are indicators that an emergency electrician is needed.
Don’t lose your home to an electrical fire. Call our electrical emergency experts to inspect, repair, or upgrade your old panel before an inconvenience becomes a devastating electrical emergency. We are 24 hour electricians, so call as soon as you notice a problem with your panel, no matter the time of day or night.
2. Power Surges
Electrical Panels that were installed 10 or 20 years ago are already obsolete. With all of your appliances and electronics running, the risk of power surges is high. Power surges can backlash on your electronics and damage expensive equipment like your computers and kitchen appliances, costing you thousands of dollars in replacements.
Power surges can short out, or even blow, your electrical panel. Have your panel checked every five years to avoid an electrical emergency. Even if you haven’t noticed any signs of electrical overload, you should have your panel checked to ensure that your electrical system and panel are up to code.
Out-dated wiring systems and panels can affect your insurance coverage in case of an electrical fire. Additionally, if your electrical panel is not up to code, it can prevent you from selling your home because an outdated panel is considered a safety hazard.
3. Double Tapped Breakers
When you do have your electrical system checked by our 24 hour electricians, they will check for human error as well as natural degradation. Some contractors have been known to take shortcuts by double tapping breakers. This leaves you exposed to overheating and shorts in your system. Our home repair services will keep you up to code and help you avoid an electrical emergency.
4. Lightning Strikes
With the frequency of tropical storms in Florida, lightning strikes are a real concern. When lighting strikes your home or nearby trees, the excess energy can be conducted to your home through underground wiring or even heavy metals in the soil. The electricity generated by a lightning strike can fry you breakers and damage your panel beyond repair.
If lightning strikes your home or in your yard, call the 24 hour electricians to come inspect your electrical system for faults. After a lightning strike, avoid touching any outlets, exposed wiring, or metal that could conduct a strong charge.

I had an issue with flickering lights throughout my town home late at night. I had called another service and they were closed. I called them and they said they offered 24 hour emergency service. One of their emergency electricians came out right away and fixed the wiring problem. Thank You!

I need to get help fast. My insurance company told me that my Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) panel was way out of date and recalled in 1982. I was going to lose my insurance coverage. They said they offered 24 hour emergency service and they came out and had me re-installed and certified within a day! I cant thank you enough.
