You know it’s happened because a portion of your home’s lights will go out, or certain outlets will no longer work. When a circuit breaker trips, it is not usually because the breaker itself is faulty—it is doing what it was designed to do: protect your home from a possibly dangerous situation like an electrical fire.

24 Hour Emergency Electrician in Grand Blanc and Genesee County

Many electricians and service companies advertise as providing 24-hour and emergency electrical service. But over the past few decades serving the Genesee County area, we’ve found many electrical contractors don’t actually deliver on their 24-hour promise. 24/7 service means that you can call with an electrical emergency at any time, day, night or weekend. When new customers call with an emergency, they often explain the experience they’ve had trying to find an electrician. Their account is usually something like, “they all say 24/7 service, but nobody answered the phone until I called you.” [Read more…]
