What are power surges & are they dangerous?
Surges occur when a particular event causes interference in the normal flow of electricity. Some examples of these events include fallen trees, lightning, windstorms, and other similar incidents. At times, power surges can cause damages to particularly sensitive units, such as TVs or computers.
Because these incidents can happen at any time, it’s best to invest in a good surge protection device or have your whole unit surge protected.
Steadfast Electric can fully explain your surge protection device options and help you find the right one for your home.
I reset the breaker but the power still isn’t back on. What else should I do?
In order to fully reset a breaker, you have to push the tab all the way to the off position. While it sounds simple, most people fail to fully turn off the breaker. Make sure that you have completely turned the breaker off and on then try the power again. If you still are without electricity, give us a call.
I just changed my lightbulbs but they still continue to flicker. What should I do?
A flickering lightbulb may be a sign of bigger problems in your electrical system such as faulty wiring or an inefficient electrical panel. If the flickering or dimming continues, get in touch with a professional electrician from Steadfast Electric right away. We can perform a comprehensive electrical safety inspection and troubleshoot the issue at hand.
When should I call a professional electrician?
Electrical work can be dangerous. Without the proper know-how, doing the electrical job yourself puts you at risk of starting a house fire or getting electrocuted. As much as possible, we recommend that you contact a professional for all your electrical needs. Steadfast Electric is well-equipped and highly trained to handle all types of electrical work, big or small. We provide safe, efficient electrical services at fair prices.
Will you carry the parts needed for the job?
The majority of the time, we’ll have the parts needed to complete the job. In some special contracts, however, we might need to special order particular parts. However, you can always count on us to come prepared for the job. We maintain open communication with you throughout the process to ensure you are fully informed on timelines for ordered products if necessary.
