Flickering Lights – When to Worry

Flickering lights can be irritating but were you aware that they could be an indicator of an electrical emergency at your Wandsworth property?

A lot of the time, whatever causes your lights to flicker is benign. Sometimes, it can be the ‘tip of the iceberg’ and indicate your electrical system has a major fault.

Deciding if you need a Wandsworth Emergency Electrician

Making the decision about calling out an emergency electrician in Wansdsworth can be tricky. On one hand, you don’t want to spend money needlessly. On the other hand, you don’t want to have to call the fire brigade when your property is on fire because of an electrical fault that you didn’t get sorted. If in doubt, call out.

We have domestic and specialist commercial emergency electricians who cover Wandsworth and other areas of South London. A simple call to us on 0208 406 9834 at any time of day or night and we can get a local emergency electrician out to you very quickly.

Here are our top tips to help you decide if you need to call an emergency electrician:

One flickering light.

The usual cause of this is a dodgy or a loose bulb. First check to see if it is loose and tighten it if necessary. If it continues to flicker, change it for a new bulb. If it still flickers, the problem lies elsewhere, call an emergency electrician.

Several lights flickering in a contained area.

This is probably an issue with the lighting circuit for that part of the house, office or other building. There may be a loose connection somewhere or a degraded wire. This needs an electrician to diagnose and repair the fault.

Lights flicker when an appliance or machinery is switched on.

This happens because the appliance or machinery puts extra loading on your system. It is not an emergency, however, you should call out a Wandsworth eletrician sooner rather than later as it could mean your electrical system needs upgrading.

All of your lights are flickering.

This can be an indicator that there is a bigger problem affecting your whole electrical system. Often, it is something as simple as loose connections to one or more circuit breakers. Loose connections are a significant source of electrical fires so definitely call out an emergency Wandsworth electrician as soon as you have this problem.

BUT IF …

Lights are flickering in neighbouring homes or business premises

This indicates there is an issue with the supply. Your power supply company will probably be looking into it. In this case, don’t call us, call your energy supplier. They will probably already be aware but it will do no harm for you to call as well.
