What is Considered an Electrical Emergency?
If you think that your electrical problem is something more than a nuisance, give us a call. Our team will help diagnose the issue and determine whether it’s actually an emergency or not before scheduling any unnecessary work for yourself. You’re not alone. Some of the common indicators of an electrical emergency include:
Unidentified Burning Scent
The smell of burning plastic can be an indication that your appliances are causing the problem. Make sure you check all outlets, ducts and breakers for any sparks or strange noises coming from them as this could mean there’s something wrong with either one!
A Buzzing or Humming Sound in Breaker Box
The normal sound of an electrical current flowing through the wires in your breaker box is a gentle hum. However, if you notice that it’s getting louder and more bothersome than before then something may be wrong like overloads on some circuits which can cause a potential fire hazard.
The Circuit Breaker Keeps on Tripping Recurringly
The circuit breaker may have been tripped due to one of the following reasons:
- The circuit breaker box is going bad
- A circuit overload the breaker box cannot accommodate
- A ground fault is occurring, meaning a hot wire is touching the ground
- An appliance or wire is short-circuiting, meaning the electrical flow has gone outside the intended circuit
Lights Continuously Tremble
When your lights flicker, it could be a minor problem with the light bulb or maybe just something going on in that circuit. But if you get persistent flickering this signals an actual bigger issue- such as too much voltage and loose wiring which are dangerous! You need to have them looked at right away so they don’t cause anything worse like fires from being left unchecked
A Person Received an Electrical Shock
There are many instances where one can experience electrical shock, such as:
- Old outlets that are two-prong and therefore have no ground wire as a safety barrier
- An outlet or switch with loose screws or wiring makes the electrical current unstable
- Faulty appliances, including frayed wiring or broken cords that shock you when you plug them in
- Water sources near electricity, or touching outlets with damp hands
Smoke Coming from an Outlet or Cords nearby
These outlets may start a fire because they are covered in dust and dirt. Debris builds up inside, causing electricity to transfer which could lead to an arcing event that causes heat buildup or even sparks flying off into your room! Make sure you check for any loose wires before this happens by giving each outlet its own plugs so nothing else can be damaged too when there is trouble at one point during use
Loss of Power
When everyone else on the block loses power, it’s not abnormal to experience a reduction in your home’s voltage. But if you happen be one of few people left with electricity after some kind of failure or problem at an electrical company office nearby – then that could mean there is hazardous issue going down inside their breaker box which needs immediate diagnosis!
Moist Electrical Panel
Electrical panels are designed to protect you from the dangers of mixing water and electricity, but they can’t do their job if there’s no seal or soak through on your box. Corroding corrosion will ruin multiple components in an electrical panel which increases resistance within circuits causing more heat production this could lead not only towards fire spotting across other areas (like bedroom), but potentially even cause explosions!
An Electrical Fire Situation
When there’s a fire, you should call 911 and get the flames put out immediately. After that it depends on what caused them if we can find out where they came from then maybe do some repairs or just replace whatever system might have been compromised by this incident so nothing else happens in future fires because of our negligence as homeowners!
How Much Does it cost to hire an Emergency Electrician?
You can be assured that Estevez Electric will provide quality electrical service at a fair and honest price. Their emergency team is ready to help you with any project, big or small!
What Makes Up the Price of An Emergency Electrical Repair?
Hiring an emergency electrician takes time to configure your decision. Multiple factors contribute to the cost, including:
- Location – If your electrician travels far to provide repair services, you can anticipate fees to cover mileage. The area in which you live may also be a factor if you’re in a large, populated city vs. residing in a rural community.
- Time – You can expect your electrician to bill for their time, so you should inquire as to whether the charges are a flat rate or by the hour.
- Expertise & Certifications – The experience of your electrician will factor into your pricing whether they’re an apprentice, journeyman, or master electrician. Certifications for specific services will also influence pricing as your electrician will be more knowledgeable on your specific need.
- Parts Required – Replacement parts factor into your cost depending on the parts you need, you can anticipate cost better for example, replacing one faulty wire will cost less than rewiring an entire system.
- Distance – Our location is locally owned and operated, making electricians consistently available to dispatch a service team that’s closest to your home within the Lehigh Valley area.
Is It Safe to Do Your Own Emergency Electrical Repair?
In many cases, minor electrical repairs may be done at home by the homeowner. However we recommend that you do not try any of these projects yourself as there is always a chance something could go wrong and cause an emergency situation which would make it dangerous for both parties involved if they were in close proximity to one another during this time period when things went south quickly due primarily because most incidents involving domestic fires start out small before graduating into much worse situations requiring outside intervention once already underway.

Faulty Interior and Exterior Wiring Repair
As the number of electrical devices in your home continues to grow, it’s crucial that you have a team capable enough for any challenge. Some repairs we commonly handle include:
- Hot tub & pool wiring
- Aluminum wiring repairs
- Computer wiring repairs
- Entertainment center wiring
Circuit breakers are the backbone of your home’s electrical system. They protect against overloads by shutting off electricity when too many devices demand it at once; they also allow you to quickly restore power after an interruption like lightning or a fire (or anything else!).
- Power surges
- Power interruptions
- Broken connections
- Electrical fire hazards
Power Outages and Power Surges
When power surges happen, they can be from weather conditions or a sudden return of electric after an outage. The circuit breaker wasn’t able to handle the excess electricity and things plugged into your electrical system are susceptible for burning out because there’s too much stress on them at once!
Electrical Panels Repair
An electrical panel emergency is not something you want to ignore. These signs could be a sign of trouble with your home’s wiring, and if left unaddressed can cause serious damage in short order.
- Appliances not working well
- Persistently flickering lights
- Consistently tripping breakers
- Breaker box crackles or loud buzzing sounds

Electrical Switches & Outlet Repair
outlets that don’t work well or have sparks fly when you plug in devices can be a serious danger to your family.

There are two main types: short circuit, which can cause fires or circuits that close completely; open-circuit cases where you might have smoke but no fire (or vice versa). Root causes will determine what kind needs repairing because this affects location as well!
