When the Time Strikes: Emergency Electrical Service

Electricity is the impetus that runs our lives. It lights up our homes, gives us heat, and allows us to heat our meals. Without it, our lives would be radically different, and everyone would be stumbling in the dark without light or warmth.

With the continuous need for emergency electrical service on the rise, residents of SC know just who they can turn to for good, quality electrical service. In this age, anything can happen that leads to the possibility of a blackout. Natural disasters, tripped up power lines, and faulty wiring all have the potential to bring down the power you’ve come to rely on for so long. And downed wires also add into the list of things you should never attempt without a professional. That’s why all service should never be attempted by a novice. It’s always best to call on the professionals.

We all know the various ways that our electricity can wink out at any given moment. Consider the top few of the eight most common causes of a power outage: storms, coupled with high winds, can wreak havoc on your electric supply. Consider the high winds that can knock over trees, a utility pole, or blow out your power lines in a matter of seconds. Ice can even cause serious damage, as its very weight alone can easily knock out a power line, along with the accumulation of thick snow and other side effects of bad weather.

Icy roads and pouring rain can often cause road fatalities where vehicles can slip and slide, and sometimes the driver may crash directly into a utility pole, which can cause a blackout for an entire block of businesses and residential areas where no one gets power for several hours or sometimes even days. Even earthquakes above a certain magnitude can elicit the need for emergency electrical service as lines may topple or underground cables become affected.

And with trees, since branches are capable of slicing a power line or knocking one out entirely, it is possible to request that the tree be trimmed or possibly removed from your property.

But aside from all matters of natural disasters, there are other ordinary occurrences that can lead to the need to seek emergency electrical service. Suppose that one day, you come home and turn on the kitchen lights, only to find that they are flickering suddenly and for no reason?

When pondering this question, harken to the idea that the electrical system in your home consists of a detailed setup of wires and circuits, all of which communicate from a main panel, thus bringing the current straight to an outlet. Most residences have two main outlets that are three pronged with a hot, neutral, and ground wire as required by law.

The circuit wiring represents the lifeblood of your electric supply, and when it gets disrupted, that typically warrants an emergency for residents in SC and everywhere. When wires become frayed and circuits are intercepted, electrical fires can result quickly and without warning. Rodents and other wild animals can sneak into a generator or your walls and gnaw away at your wires without your immediate notice, and an electrical fire could result as sparks fly while your wires are being chewed apart.

When buying a new home within the Myrtle Beach area, it is highly recommended that you call on Mister Sparky to schedule an appointment immediately. A licensed electrician will come to your home, inspect your wiring and circuits, and determine if anything needs improvement before you settle in. This should also happen anytime you plan to remodel, sell, or rent out your home to prospective tenants. In fact, annual home and business inspections are highly recommended by OSHA and other federal consumer agencies for safety reasons. Plus, a thorough inspection may serve as a preventive measure to future electrical emergencies down the road by simply ensuring that all wires and circuits are firmly in place. Common problems such as exposed or broken wires can be uncovered and fixed in no time.

The electricians at Mister Sparky® of Myrtle Beach can uncover any problems that may arise as the result of the inspection and address them as soon as possible to avoid the likelihood of possible future emergency electrical service.

But there are times that emergency electrical service simply cannot be avoided. Sometimes, the cruel heat of the summer months may constitute a demand for this type of service. When residents concentrated in a single area such as Myrtle Beach use their air conditioners nonstop 24/7, this can exhaust an electrical system to the point of a total and complete meltdown, thus necessitating the need for emergency electrical service. This happens due to the fact that cables and circuits can become exhausted as transformers blow due to the exponential increase in the use of electricity.
