Is Yours the Only Place in the Street Without Power?

The first thing to check if you have a power failure at home is whether it’s you or a general blackout. This is easy enough to do at night because if it’s just you, the streetlights will still be on as well as the neighbour’s lights. During the day you can just check with a neighbour before having a look at your switchboard to see what’s happened.

Sometimes a power outage is only confined to one circuit in the home and if you can work out what caused it – a faulty appliance for instance – you can remove the cause and switch the circuit breaker back on. If you don’t know why the power is out, it’s time to call an emergency electrician.

What to do When There's No Electricity

If it is a blackout of the whole area, try not to use up the battery on your phone in case the outage goes on for a while. It’s also important that you keep the fridge closed so that it remains properly cold for as long as possible.

If it’s dark, we don’t recommend using candles because they are a fire hazard and you really don’t want to be attempting to put out a fire when the lights are off.

Interest Free** Emergency Electrician

No one plans for an electrical emergency at 10pm on a Sunday night. You can’t live without electricity, so paying to have it restored is a necessary expense. But with Metropolitan, you don’t have to worry if you can’t afford to pay immediately.

Along with no extra charges for after hours, we offer interest free** payment plans with reputable providers such as Zip and Humm.

You have the flexibility of weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments. Some plans even accept a $0 deposit, so you pay nothing upfront. Your electrician can take you through the easy application process on site and approval usually takes only a few minutes.

We also accept payment by cash, cheque and credit card (Visa, Mastercard or American Express).

So, if you want fully licensed and qualified emergency electricians, contact us today.

FAQs – When Do You Need an Emergency Electrician?

Sometimes it's hard to know what an emergency is. Here's some insight into when you need an emergency electrician.

An electrical emergency can pose a serious risk to your home, family and friends. Some of the most common emergencies include:

  • Regularly blown fuses or safety switches tripping
  • Overloaded powerpoints  this can cause burnt sockets and fire
  • Power outages
  • Sparking appliances or outlets
  • Humming or buzzing circuit breaker safety switches may not be working

In reality, not everyone views an emergency in the same way. So no matter how you see it, Metropolitan doesn’t judge. When something goes wrong with your electronics or wiring, call an expert if it feels wrong.

When the power goes out, there are a few easy things you can do, for your safety.

First, check your switchboard. It may just be a blown fuse which can be turned back on.

If not, next you’ll need to check with your energy provider if there’s a planned or widespread outage. Power outage maps should be readily available to confirm this or not.

It’s also wise to check with the neighbours. They could be facing similar issues. Also, look outside to see if there is any damage to your powerlines. Be sure to stay away from fallen powerlines or risky situations. Call the emergency services if this is the case.

If there’s no easy answer, call in a licensed electrician. It’s always better to be proactive when it comes to a dangerous situation.
