Every home is likely to have electrical issues periodically. This may include flickering lights, burnout bulbs, and non-working outlets. However, certain electrical problems constitute a safety hazard for your family and require immediate attention. It’s important to find an experienced electrician to handle electrical problems in your house. When it comes to electrical issues that can’t wait, you need a trusted emergency electrician. At Buffalo Electric, we have the equipment and know-how to fix major and minor electrical problems and deal with emergencies that threaten your security and safety.
What Is an Electrical Emergency?
Emergency electricians offer 24/7 commercial and residential services. You don’t need an appointment to call us after hours, on weekends, and during holidays to get the help you need. We understand that some things can’t wait and put your family’s safety and priority first, just like you do.
Electrical emergencies require urgent intervention to keep your home warm or cool and keep your security systems operating.
Prolonged Power Outage
If you have experienced a prolonged power outage and your neighbors have had power back for a while, it might be time to call in an emergency electrician to get to the root of the problem quickly. Depending on the time of year, access to electrical power becomes a life-threatening emergency. That includes extreme temperatures in the winter and summer that can plunge and rise quickly.
If storm damage has caused electrical hazards, you can turn off the main power of your home. Then, call an emergency electrician to resolve issues that make your home or business safe.
Do you see sparks or smoke when you plug or unplug electronic devices and appliances? Overloaded circuits present a fire hazard that requires immediate attention. If you see smoke or sparks or notice a burnt smell coming from your outlet, it’s best to call an electrician to evaluate and resolve the issue immediately.
Exposed wires can cause electrocution, fire, and shocks. If you notice exposed electrical wiring, contact us right away to properly insulate the wiring to prevent a potential fire.
Do your lights hum or buzz when you turn them on? Noises coming from your electrical system are rarely a good sign. This could indicate faulty wiring or improperly grounded outlets. Contact us immediately to check for loose connections, overloaded circuits and other potential causes. Besides getting rid of the annoying noise, you can rest assured that your family is that much safer.
Sudden Loss of Power
If you have a sudden power outage and the rest of your neighborhood still has the lights on, start by calling the utility company. If they don’t see a problem on their end, it may be time to call in an emergency electrician to quickly find the problem and restore your electricity.
Feel free to call us right away if someone in your home relies on electricity to keep medications cool or run life-saving devices.
Water Damage in the Home
You’ll need a plumber, roofer, or other professional to fix broken pipes and other causes of water damage. However, an emergency electrician can repair any damage to your electrical system once you have resolved the water damage. At Buffalo Electric, we can also install emergency generators if you need temporary electrical power while you clean up the mess.
Three Reasons to Call Us in an Emergency
If you believe that you have an electrical emergency, that’s good enough for us. Help is always available and as a family-owned electrical contractor, we are always available to help. For an immediate response, contact Buffalo Electric when you need electrical repairs in a hurry.
Electricity provides essential power needed to keep your appliances and electronics running. However, it doesn’t make sense to risk electrical repairs that can put your safety or home at risk. Instead, call our emergency electrician to avoid electrocution and fire risk. If you don’t know the proper precautions to take, a single mistake handling faulty wires can cause extensive damage to your entire electrical system. So, contact us for urgent electrical services.
Help Is Always Available
You’re sitting at home, enjoying a quiet weekend day when suddenly the lights go off and you notice a burnt smell. Who can you call? At Buffalo Electric, we’re happy to assist you any time of day or night, even on holidays. Emergencies don’t always occur on schedule, so we accommodate our schedule for you.
It Is Less Expensive
Don’t hesitate, thinking you can fix the problem on your own. Emergency repairs are far less expensive than fixing any damage done by someone without the knowledge to do the job correctly. Professional electricians receive thousands of hours of training and usually have years of job experience prior to responding to emergency calls.
In an emergency, you need someone who will pick up the phone. For potential wiring hazards that affect your refrigerators, microwaves and dishwasher, you want an electrical contractor you can count on. Without an immediate response, your appliances and electrical system can suffer major damage.
Other Reasons to Call Buffalo Electric
You can always call our emergency electrician for emergency rewiring or to investigate burnt smells from fuses. If you have a frequently tripping breaker or want to use the electrical components, we are also the team to call. Our licensed master electrician offers fast, reliable services to homeowners and business owners. We are a full-service electrical contractor offering prompt, friendly service from licensed and courteous electricians.
Contact Buffalo Electric day or night for assistance from an emergency electrician and make an appointment to schedule an estimate for routine residential or commercial electrical services.
