Finding An Electrician Who Handles Home Emergencies
Most people don't have an electrician's phone number
handy and if there was ever a home electrical emergency, they don't know
who to call. There's a good chance that you won't be able to call, just
any electrician, because most electricians don't provide 24 hour a day
emergency house services.
Like anything else that we want to be successful at, we need to prepare for it. I would like to make a simple suggestion that most homeowners rarely think about. Contact a few electricians until you find one who does handle home electrical emergencies.
You should prepare a home emergency list of contractors that would include plumbers, heating and air-conditioning, electricians and at least three home emergency contractors. These contractors should be available 24 hours a day and live locally or at the least have local repairman to handle your emergencies quickly and efficiently.
If your in a panic situation and you have a home electrical emergency that's going on right now, you should call 911 as soon as possible. Remember that you and your family's safety is priority number one and if you have an electrical fire and don't know how to handle it, the fire department will help you.
If you have an electrical problem in the middle of the night that doesn't require the fire department, but your home is the only house in the neighborhood that doesn't have electricity to it. This would be a good time to contact one of your emergency home contractors.
The only way that you're going to be able to contact any emergency house contractors, effectively, would be with a list that you already created. If you're not interested in panicking or being in a stressful situation, you should create an emergency home contractors list. The most important thing is your family's safety and you need to be prepared.
