On account of the fact that the wiring present in a home or business structure can be quite complicated, when it malfunctions this can present a rather serious safety issue—if things get out of control, you need the help of a certified emergency electrician. Since most people will avoid sparking wires or other common problems since they're worried about getting shocked, they'll usually call emergency services followed by an electrician. This is a smart move, but be aware that no matter how safe you are, if you're anywhere near an electrical problem that's currently sparking, smoking, or presenting other signs of danger, the best thing youc an do is to get out of there. Never try to resolve these sorts of problems on your own, because that can lead to injury or death. Always trust a qualified electrician to disable the power to your home or business and then resolve the problem.

When we come to your home, it might be to fix a problem concerning a number of different common electrical issues. Just because they're common doesn't mean that they aren't potentially dangerous.

Let's take a moment to look at a few common problems that might present themselves as electrical emergencies. Lowes is qualified and certified to come to your home or place of business to resolve these kinds of issues as quickly and as affordably as possible.
One of the most common electrical emergencies are conductors that have, through some problem or another, become exposed. These electrical components should always remain insulated or isolated by some means—that's because if a human or pet touches them, they could get electrically shocked. The conductor itself might be working just fine, but if it's uncovered, it's a safety issue
Loose wiring is another common problem. If wires are loose, someone could get shocked or the wires, if they touch, could cause sparking. That's a fire hazard for sure, so no matter what caused it, loose wires need to be fixed immediately. A qualified electrician knows how to properly insulate and protect the wires from this kind of problem.
Did you know that if your lights are flickering it could be an indication that there's a larger problem at stake? That's because if the lgihts flicker, you might have a problem with a loose connection in the breakers of your home or business structure, or it could be that there are loose wires somewhere. If the lights flicker or don't appear to be working properly (e.g., becoming dim at random times), you might have a problem that's worse than just a bad bulb. Call a professional electrician like the ones employed here at Lowes to come out to your home or business and take a look—you might be saving yourself from potential safety issues, not to mention saving yourself money from worse problems that might be developing.
