Every home needs the electrics to be running like clockwork. Even a minor electrical fault can create chaos in your home, as you may find that you cannot use areas of your home properly.
Unfortunately, problems don’t often develop during standard business hours, and in these situations, you’ll need an emergency electrician service.
All our recommended electricians can provide an emergency call out service, so any problems can be quickly corrected, and have the functionality of your home restored.
If you’re unsure about whether you would need this type of service, we’ll explore it in a little more detail, so you have all the facts to make an informed decision going forward.
The first question homeowners often ask is whether they actually need an emergency electrician service. This is a subjective issue, and you’ll need to use your discretion to decide whether any problem can wait.
In a case where the functionality of your home is severely compromised, the answer is obvious, but if the problem appears to be minor, you may wonder if you should call in an electrician immediately.
In order to answer whether you have an electrical emergency, you need to think about your situation. Is the electrical problem going to create other issues around your home?
For example, if a fault has compromised the power to your kitchen, you will not only be unable to prepare a meal using your oven, but the food in your fridge and freezer may start to spoil.
While a refrigerator may keep its temperature for several hours, it is likely to warm up over a weekend, which means that you’re not likely to be able to wait until Monday morning.
If the electrical problem will cause issues around your home, it is best to err on the side of caution and call in a professional.
Remember, that the electrics in your home can be hazardous, so you should not attempt any temporary repairs to try and manage as you may put yourself, your family and your home in danger.
In some cases, you may not be aware that you have an electrical fault inside your home.
Fortunately, there are some common signs of a fault in domestic wiring that should be explored by an experienced professional. These include:
You may even create a fault through an accident such as a nail through a wire that should be checked immediately, in this instances you would need an electrician as fixing this kind of fault requires expertise and experience to ensure it is done safely.
Emergency electricians are not limited to solely these type but can also provide help for a wide variety of issues.
This includes fuse box upgrades, electric cooker installations, lighting installations, storage heater installations, fire or flood damage emergency repairs, fault finding and diagnostics and socket or light rewires.
This means that practically any electrical issue can be dealt with by an emergency electrician and all our recommended electricians have the skills, qualifications, expertise to offer all these services and deal with all your electrical problems and issues.

Tom came to my home at short notice having been recommended by a friend. Such a nice guy, knowledgeable, gives advice & very professional.
Well, what can I say. If you want an Electrician that turns up on time, presentable, polite, knowledgable, cleans up after themselves and charges a very, very fair amount then look no further than Surelec. Best by far Electrician. Thanks once again Thomas.
Highly recommended, I ask Tom to fit a Electric Shower, from booking me in, he came and fitted. Date and time agreed. - Having explained what he was doing alone the way, I felt very happy in what he was doing. He fitted the shower quickly and cleanly. Tided up as he went along, and when he was finished he made sure I was happy. Answering any questions I had along the way. Cheers Tom. Excellent service from start to finish
Surelec recently installed 2 bedroom lights for me. I found Tom great to deal with. A competitive quote was provided promptly and an appointment agreed within a good time frame. Tom kept me updated on his arrival time and the work was completed to the expected standard. Care was taken to be as tidy as possible. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Surelec to others.
