24-Hour Emergency Electrical Service & Repair

Nearly one-third of all residential and commercial fires stem from an electrical hazard that goes unnoticed. When it comes to electrical work, it is always better to hire a professional than try to tackle it on your own. Morrison Electrical is here when you need us most, offering the most comprehensive, fastest, and most reliable emergency electrical services in Augusta and the surrounding areas.

Trying to fix an electrical issue can lead to the risk of electrical shock and fires, which is why all electrical work should be done and verified by a professional electrician service. If you notice something amiss, you must call an emergency electrical service rather than attempting to handle it alone.

What is an Electrical Emergency?

There are times when electrical problems are nothing more than an inconvenience and others when they need to be addressed on an emergent basis. Do you know what signs to look for that might signal that you should call a professional?

A Burning Odor

If you get a whiff of something burning but your smoke detectors aren’t sounding, do not just assume it is nothing and ignore it! You must check individual outlets, your appliances, ductwork, and your breaker box to see if you can identify where the odor is coming from. Any burning smell can stem from an electrical hazard, so it is important not to disregard it.

Humming or Buzzing Sounds From the Breaker Box

Buzzing or humming sounds coming from your breaker box can sometimes be normal, but if the sounds change, intensify, or get louder, call a professional. Loud sounds can signal that the circuit breaker is overloaded, which can increase the risk of fire!

Tripping Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers are prone to tripping, but if your breakers are constantly tripping, it is important to check for:

  • Ground fault, or hot wires, touching the ground surface
  • A faulty circuit breaker
  • An overloaded breaker
  • A wire or appliance short-circuiting, which indicates that the electrical flow has gone outside of the safety of the circuit

Flickering Lights

Most people experience flickering lights here and there, but if your lights are continually flickering, then it is probably due to overloaded circuits, loose wires, or excess voltage, all of which pose a hazard and need to be addressed.

Where There’s Smoke, There’s Usually Fire

If you see smoke coming from an outlet, it usually means that electricity is transferring to dirt or dust that is building up in your outlets. Also, arching will lead to heat, which is an immediate warning sign of a fire hazard. Other issues that might lead to fire are loose plug-in connections or too many plugins being connected to one single outlet.

Electrical Shock

If someone has experienced electric shock, you might be experiencing:

  • A switch or outlet whereby the electrical current is unstable
  • Old outlets without ground wires that provide stability and safety barriers
  • Appliances that have faulty wiring or broken cords
  • Water that is too close to electricity or touching an outlet with wet hands

Power Loss

Power outages are expected from storms or heavy winds. But if you lose power and no one else around you does, it is a good idea to contact a professional emergency electrical service.

A Wet Electrical Panel

It is never a good idea to mix electricity with water. It poses a risk of electrocution. If your breaker box isn’t properly sealed, water and moisture exposure will, over time, lead to corrosion and the risk of your circuits overheating. Again, it increases the potential risk of fire.

An Electrical Fire Has Already Occurred

If you notice an active fire, call 911 and extinguish the fire immediately. After the fire has been immediately addressed, call our emergency electricians!

Are DIY Electrical Repairs Safe?

In minor instances and when it is not an emergency, there are occasions where electrical work can safely be done on a DIY basis. However, if you are facing the risk of electrocution, shock, or a fire hazard, no, it is not an appropriate DIY fix!

How Much Does an Emergency Electrical Repair Call Cost?

Most of us would rather not pay an expense if we don’t have to, but when it comes to electricity, it is always best to err on the side of caution. Not all emergency repair services hike up their prices – we deliver fair and honest pricing. What are the factors that affect the cost of an emergency repair call?

  • Location

    Finding an electrician close by is always preferable, as it means less travel time for the electrician service.

  • Time

    Before you hire someone, find out what their time is worth. Find out if the service charges a flat rate, or by the hour. Also, if you sign up for a maintenance program, you typically get a discounted rate for emergency calls.

  • Expertise & Certifications

    The experience level of the electrician you hire will likely affect the price. But it is important to make sure that you are calling the service with the right credentials to get the job done safely and correctly!

  • Parts

    Parts are an additional expense on top of the repair call itself. Make sure that the service you hire has quality parts and charges a fair price for them.

    For everyone’s safety, hiring a professional electrician will reduce the risk of personal harm and the potential for a residential or commercial fire.
