Signs You Need to Call an Electrician

The Sydney electrician team at Electrician To The Rescue can’t stress this point enough  – you can’t take chances with electricity. 

A small or minor fault today can be a huge problem tomorrow – don’t wait till it is too late! Here are the signs that it’s time to call an electrician.

  • Circuit breakers and blown fuses – circuit breakers do trip and fuses blow from time to time, however if you find you are frequently replacing a fuse or have to reset a circuit breaker it is a sign you have a problem. Call Electrician To The Rescue to find and fix the source of the problem.
  • Flickering lights – one flickering light is often just a sign that a bulb needs replacing and you don’t need an electrician for that, but if the light still continues to flicker after you have replaced the bulb, or it is continuing to happen – it could be an issue with your wiring
  • A *buzzing* sound – if you hear a buzzing sound coming from your light switch or power point it is a sign of a serious problem that should be looked at by Sydney electricians

Electrical shocks – there is something wrong if you get an electrical shock when turning on a light switch or plugging in an appliance. It could be frayed wiring. Minor shocks can lead to major shocks – or even a fire. DO NOT TRY AND FIX THE PROBLEM YOURSELF. You can easily make a mistake; always call in the professional Sydney electricians from Electrician To The Rescue

  • A burning smell – electrical fires have a very distinctive acrid burning smell, and if you are lucky that will be the indication of just a small fire, but if you ignore it the material around the wire that’s causing the smell it can catch on fire and then you have a house fire to deal with

Discoloured switches and power points – if you ignore that buzzing sound a small fire that starts up behind the light switch or power point might show up as charring or discoloration. If you find an outlet is discoloured call Electrician To The Rescue immediately.
