When something goes wrong with the electricity in your home, it can be difficult to know what to do. Is the problem standard or do you need an immediate solution? Problems with electricity can be overwhelming – and understandably so. Electricity is both vital and volatile. It’s not something you want to take chances with. Some issues can wait until Monday morning, while other problems require emergency intervention. At Moses Electrical, we offer 24/7 emergency services as part of our range of electrician services. When you’re deciding whether to call for an electrician in Wellington City, there are some things that can wait – and some things that can’t.
A breaker trip is not necessarily dangerous. If your breaker trips, it’s doing its job: detecting an overuse of electricity and protecting your home. Most of the time, it’s perfectly normal for a breaker to trip – it usually just means that you have too many things plugged in and operating simultaneously. If you notice that your breakers trip regularly, it’s time to call an electrician in Wellington NZ to see what’s going on.
Have you noticed your lights flickering unexpectedly? This may merely be a sudden charge moving through your home. Lights can flicker when you turn on high-wattage appliances such as space heaters or heavy power tools; storms may also cause this issue. If your lights flicker, it’s not necessarily cause for alarm or emergency intervention, but it might indicate that you should call an electrician shortly to make sure everything is functioning normally.
Sparking outlets are difficult to pin down – and the cause may be relatively benign, or it may be dangerous. If an outlet sparks a lot, sparks for a prolonged period, or sparks unprovoked, you should call an emergency electrician to investigate at once. However, sparking can be normal when plugging something in or turning it on for the first time. When this occurs, it most likely indicates that you need new outlets soon. Many electrical companies in Wellington can help.
