Has your power been suddenly shut off? Such an event can be alarming for homeowners. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be frightening when you’re well prepared. At Mr. Electric of Fort Worth, we provide premium residential and commercial electrical services for our DFW area customers. While many outages are caused by utility company failures or bad weather, there are also times when internal electrical issues are to blame. Ignoring such problems is risky. We’ve helped many property owners diagnose and repair their energy issues, and we want to help you do the same. Here are some tips on what to do when you’ve lost power, and how to get it safely restored.
If you’re left without power, the first step is to gather everyone in the home or building to a safe place. If it’s night, be sure to locate a light source and if foul weather is at play, it’s helpful to have a hand cranked emergency radio and fully charged power bank ready to stay help you stay informed. Once you’ve established the health and wellbeing of everyone in the house, it’s time to move on to the breaker box. Check the main breaker switch. If it’s turned OFF, flip it back to the ON position. If the power is still gone, then there’s a bigger problem. If it’s safe to do so, check with neighbors to see if your home is the only one on the street without electricity. Either way, contact your local utility company to ensure there isn’t a billing issue or problem with a nearby transformer or electrical line.
In some cases, the problem will exist within your own electrical system. You may have a failing electrical panel, bad wiring or another issue. If this is the case, it’s probably best to call a professional. A certified and insured electrician can help properly diagnose the source of your trouble so you can get power restored in a safe and efficient manner.
