When to Call an Emergency Electrician
Spotting early warning signs of a fault in your electrical system will therefore help you to avoid business downtime or avert a possible fire in your HMO or home. If you ignore them, things can quickly take a turn for the worse – an electrical fault could become an electrical emergency. Many electrical emergencies can cause fires which can become rapidly fatal.
The occasional flicker of lights or a noise when switching an appliance on or off are not usually a problem. If the issues recur, then they need investigating. If the recurrence is infrequent, making an appointment for an electrician to call is usually fine. The time to call in an emergency electrician to your Coulsdon property is when something suddenly goes wrong for no apparent reason or when a fault is persistent.
Signs and symptoms to look out for include sparks when flipping a switch or unplugging an appliance; buzzing noises in fittings; lights flickering on a long-term basis; overheating fittings and appliances; fishy smells from fittings or wiring and of course circuit breakers tripping out repeatedly.
What to do About an Electrical Fault or Electrical Emergency in Coulsdon?
Probably the worst thing you could do is to try to do your own temporary or permanent repair. Why? The cause of the fault is not necessarily where you observe it. Also, if you carry out a repair that is incorrect, it will make the problem worse. It could also leave you open to potential legal action. Electrical fault repair is best left to a Coulsdon (CR5) emergency electrician to sort out.

Fast Coulsdon Emergency Electrician Service
When searching for a suitable emergency electrician, speed is of the essence. Look carefully at any electrical contractors you are considering. Make sure they are genuinely local and not a national chain, pretending to be local. Yes, they will use local emergency electricians but they are not necessarily in the CR5 Coulsdon area. The electrician may be somewhere in north London and will take a while to get over to you in Coulsdon.
Your call will go to a call centre, where you will need to describe your electrical fault. That information will then be passed on to a more local electrician, somewhere in London. They will then have to ring you, go through the details you have already given to a receptionist, which wastes time.
In other words, valuable repair time is lost unless you choose an electrician in the local area.
Here at South London Electricians, you will speak directly to an electrician for Coulsdon. Instead of pacing up and down for ages, waiting for a call back, by ringing us, one of our emergency electricians could already be on-site, fixing your problem.
