Reliable Inspections for Peace of Mind
If you don’t have electrical training, it can be difficult to distinguish between a true emergency and what can wait. If there are any changes to your electrical components and systems, or you simply feel that something is not right, it’s in your best interest to have it inspected by a professional. Our Ottawa emergency electricians will ensure your electrical system is running smoothly and there are no safety threats to you or your property. In the event that something needs to be replaced or immediately repaired, our team can take care of all the electrical work for you right on the spot. You’ll also get a comprehensive report of all the components that were examined, along with a detailed list of recommendations if any upgrades are necessary.
You can’t always prevent an electrical emergency from occurring, but you can take some precautionary steps to reduce the chances of one happening:
Arrange for ongoing maintenance – Having one of our experienced electricians perform an annual inspection on your electrical system can highlight undetected issues so they can be repaired before they become more severe.
Don’t ignore small issues – Loose wiring or a flickering light might not seem like a big deal, but these issues often indicate a larger, underlying problem. Don’t ignore any inconsistencies with your electrical system – the sooner you act, the safer you will be.
Complete recommended upgrades – Any upgrades that have been suggested should not be put off or ignored. Even small upgrades can protect the integrity of your electrical system. Saving a few dollars by putting off important replacements and installations can leave you with more expensive bills if a problem arises in the future.
Being Prepared If An Emergency Arises
If you experience an electrical emergency, your next course of action could save a life. Here are just a few ways that you can plan ahead:
Keep our phone number handy – Take a few moments to add our contact information to your phone. If an emergency arises, you’ll know who to call to get the problem fixed quickly and efficiently.
Test your safety equipment often – Every few months you should test the fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and any other safety equipment that you have to ensure it is still in working condition. It’s also important to have a proper fire extinguisher that’s designed to put out electrical fires.
Create a plan of action – If smoke is coming from your electrical panel and you’re not around, the other people inside your property might not know how to react or what to do. This situation could be concerning if they try to remedy it on their own. Instead, have a list of steps to take if there are any issues with the power supply panel, outlets or panel boards. Keep this list on the fridge or in the staff room where it can be easily accessed. Don’t forget to add our phone number to that list as well.
