With easily accessible hardware and home stores, along with the variety of tutorials available on the Internet, it’s become increasingly easy to perform home improvement jobs yourself. However, there are some elements of the home that you shouldn’t attempt to handle on your own. When it comes to electrical emergencies, it can be difficult and downright dangerous to try and fix them yourself.

Dealing with electrical issues can lead to electric shock or even fatalities. Fortunately, you don’t have to take care of these problems on your own. Gainesville Electricians provides experienced, efficient electricians, as well as emergency services so that you don’t have to deal with power outages, flickering lights, or any other electrical problem longer than necessary. Whether it be an electrical fire, power outage, or broken breaker box, Gainesville Electricians can help. 


Emergency Electricians Discussing The Best Course Of Action

The only people that can properly fix electrical issues while also maintaining electrical safety are professionals. Here are some of the reasons why you should call a professional to handle your electrical emergencies:


If you call a regular electrician, you’ll have to wait until business hours before they arrive. This means that if your power systems are down, you’ll have to go without power until the electrician is ready. Moreover, there’s no guarantee the electrician will even be sent the next day. Many electrical contractors have lists of houses to visit, so you might have to wait for quite some time. 

Even if you do get a quick appointment with an electrician, it may disturb your other plans. You’ll have to be home at the time the electrician wants, otherwise, you might have to wait several days for another appointment. Emergency electricians are available 24/7 and work on holidays, evenings, and weekends, so you won’t lose any valuable time or suffer any inconveniences. 

You might think the best way to save time would be to simply do the project yourself, but in reality this would probably end up consuming even more of your time. Performing electrical projects on your own requires conducting research on the problem, visiting stores to purchase the correct equipment, and then attempting to actually perform the repairs. Even if you do the job correctly on the first try, an emergency electrician will have done the job faster, more efficiently.

Emergency electricians should always respond promptly. The experts at Gainesville Electricians are available round-the-clock to meet your electrical needs.


It can be difficult to determine if electrical issues qualify as electrical emergencies. Sometimes it’s obvious, such as smoke coming from your power outlet or electrical outlets. Other times it’s less certain, such as a strange scent in your home or funny noise coming from the circuit breaker. 

If you decide to wait to have an electrical issue checked out, or try to take care of the problem on your own, you could be unintentionally putting your safety at risk. Problems that may occur include the following:

  • Electrical shock
  • Electrical fires
  • Power outages

Thus, an emergency electrician is the best call when it comes to electrical safety. 


Some problems can be handled on your own. But is it worth it?
