Identifying and Handling Different Electrical Emergencies

As a homeowner, you need to know how to deal with certain electrical situations at home. Some of them will not only be inconvenient, but may also pose a safety risk if not handled properly. This includes unexpected power outages or wiring from your HVAC installation that has failed to trip. 

To determine if you’re having an electrical emergency, here’s what you need to look for:

Power outage. You may have already experienced power outages in your area, which can be more of an inconvenience than a real electrical emergency. But if a sudden loss of power only happens to your home and there isn’t a clear cause for it, call your electric utility company and see if they have an answer on their end.

Overloaded outlet. Putting too much pressure on a single outlet will cause it to heat up and start to smoke and burn. This can leave a black or brown mark around the outlet. If you smell something burning or see smoke coming from an outlet, you should call in a trusted electrician as soon as possible. In the meantime, try to cut the power from that area via your circuit breaker and avoid touching the outlet, as it could be very hot.

Buzzing or humming circuit breaker. The circuit breaker is designed to cut power in case sudden problems damage your appliances and other electrical equipment. If you hear loud humming or buzzing noises coming from your breaker box, this means that it’s trying to trip but is unable to do so for some reason. This is a serious emergency, as it indicates the electrical safety system is failing. Make sure to call your trusted electrician as soon as possible to properly address the problem.
