Don’t you see the answer you need? Contact us today and we’ll be happy to give you our professional advice.
• HOW SHOULD I KNOW WHEN TO CALL AN ELECTRICIAN?
There are many warning signs that could indicate you need a professional electrician. Triggered circuit breakers, blown fuses, and flickering lights are just a few, but any time you notice something out of the ordinary with your electrical system, it’s worth calling Red Star Electrical Services.
• HOW MUCH ELECTRICAL WORK CAN I DO WITHOUT A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN?
We understand the DIY mentality, but the truth is that completing your own electrical work is clearly a gamble and could even be illegal. When it comes to electricity, safety is the highest priority. Save yourself the risk and call in an affordable and licensed professional to make sure you’re not endangering yourself, your business, or your family.
• HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU RESPOND TO MY CALL?
Emergency electrical services are available around the clock for our Westchester County and Rockland County customers. For less-than-urgent requests, you can expect a call to set up an appointment the next day at the latest.
• THERE IS NO POWER IN MY HOUSE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
There are a number of reasons why your power could be out, ranging from simple Westchester County and Rockland County grids maintenance to a more serious problem, such as a faulty fuse box. The first thing to do is to call your local electricity provider to make sure the problem is not on their end. If that doesn’t provide an adequate answer, call Red Star Electric to schedule an urgent visit.
• MY CIRCUIT BREAKER KEEPS RESETTING. SHOULD I KEEP TURNING IT ON?
A flipped circuit breaker or a fuse that keeps burning out means that your electrical system is either overloaded or there is a problem with the wiring. If the fuse corresponds to a specific room or set of outlets, check to see if too many devices are plugged in. For a better long term solution, call us today and we’ll come up with the appropriate course of action.
• WHAT IS THAT SOUND COMING FROM MY ELECTRICAL PANEL?
A sound coming from your electrical panel could be a very dangerous situation and you should call Red Star Electric as soon as possible. We’ll dispatch a professional electrician to handle the problem and get your electricity under control.
