When Should You Call An Emergency Electrician In North London?

There are many reasons you might need to call an emergency electrician in North London, from needing a complete rewiring for your home, needing help with electrical upgrades or new light installations, to installing a new smart system into your home or even a home theatre. However, most emergency electricians are used when the safety of your home is at risk. Continued use of electrical outlets and electrical appliances can lead to wear which can become a risk to the welfare of your family.

Do I Need An Emergency Electrician?

Whilst the power supply in your North London home is more than capable of handling the required voltage for the electrical equipment and devices you use, if you are noticing power cuts that are becoming more frequent, it could be an indication that there is a fault with your power system or wiring, and an emergency electrician should be called to survey the situation. Electrical failures or surges may be due to faulty connections, or something more serious. An emergency electrician can run electrical tests in your North London home to pinpoint where the issue is coming from and can fix any problems in your power system.

Other circumstances that require immediate attention from an emergency electrician include electric shocks and water damage. A fully functioning electrics system with a circuit breaker will protect you from shocks, however, if you find that you notice even small shocks when using an electrical device or appliance an emergency electrician needs to be called to assess the safety of your home. Shocks of any severity are a sign of an electrical fault and need to be dealt with promptly to avoid serious danger.

Another reason you may need an emergency electrician is if you have had any recent water damage in your North London home. From flooding to a burst pipe, or even just a leak, water that has penetrated your home has the ability to be deadly when it affects the electrical system. Not just because of the obvious risk of electric shock, but because water and moisture also cause corrosion to electrical wiring which can cause faults later down the line. An emergency electrician can identify water damage to your electrical system or any other electrical hazards.
