Few things can be more concerning for home owners than discovering your home's power has failed.

In some cases, it can also be a sign of a potentially dangerous electrical issue. At Mr. Electric of Atlanta, we enjoy providing local home and business owners with safe and dependable electricity. We want you to also have the same quality electrical system for your family. Here are some tips on what you can do to find out what's wrong, and when it's time to call for professional assistance.
Tips for Troubleshooting a Power Failure
When you've lost power, the first step is to check on the safety and wellbeing of everyone in the home. Once your loved ones have been gathered into a safe area, find an alternative light source so you can properly inspect the electrical panel. Check to see if the breaker switches are on the OFF position. If so, then flip them to the ON position, and see if the power returns. If it's still off, check with neighbors to see if your home is the only one affected. Next, you'll need to contact the utility company which provides electricity to the property, and find out if there have been any outages reported. There could be a downed power line or damaged transformer in your neighborhood.
When Should You Call a Professional Electrician?
If you've eliminated the possibility for a widespread electrical outage, then the problem could be caused by several sources such as a damaged electrical panel or corrupted wiring from the meter to your panel. Now it's time to call a certified electrician who can conduct a proper inspection and accurately diagnose your issue. They will then have the resources and experience needed to properly provide necessary repairs, replacements or new installations.
