Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for an electrician to arrive during an emergency?

Our goal is to respond to emergencies as quickly as possible. While the exact arrival time can vary depending on location and workload, we prioritize urgent situations and aim to dispatch an electrician to your home within a few hours.

Can you provide me with a rough estimate over the phone for my electrical emergency?

In some cases, based on your description of the problem, we may be able to offer a general estimate over the phone. However, for a more accurate assessment and final quote, a licensed electrician will need to diagnose the issue firsthand.

How can I prevent electrical fires in my home?

Several measures can help reduce the risk of electrical fires. Here are some key tips:

  • Avoid overloading circuits by plugging in too many appliances at once.
  • Regularly inspect electrical cords for damage and replace frayed or worn wires.
  • Don't run extension cords under rugs or carpets.
  • Have faulty outlets and switches repaired by a qualified electrician immediately.
  • Invest in tamper-resistant receptacles to prevent electrical shocks, especially in homes with young children.
