What’s wrong with my electrical system?

Why don’t my lights work?

What should I do when my lights go out?

Is the electrical system in your home on the fritz? When the electricity in your home isn’t working, you are bound to have lots of other problems as well. You use all sorts of things daily that require electricity. Lights, appliances, refrigerator, dishwasher, laundry machine, your HVAC system…

If the electricity in your house isn’t working properly, then you will need to get it fixed right away. Maybe there is something wrong with your circuit breaker or with individual outlets. Some electrical problems can be fixed fairly easily, but some are dangerous and will need a professional’s attention. Depending on what the issue is, you may end up shocking yourself or seriously injuring yourself if you try to fix it alone. 

That’s where Southern Comfort Mechanical comes in. 

Southern Comfort has nearly 30 years of experience with electricity. Whatever the problem, Southern Comfort can fix it. No electrical issue is too big or too small for Southern Comfort Mechanical. 

Whether your problem is as simple as needing a difficult-to-reach lightbulb changed or as big as an entire electrical rewiring, Southern Comfort Mechanical is the company for you. 

Yes, working on the electrical system can be dangerous. Unless you yourself are a professional or have previous experience, you should leave the hard fixes to someone who knows what he’s doing. Some signs that your system needs to be serviced by a professional and could be potentially dangerous include:

  • If the lights in your home are flickering
  • Light bulbs burn out much quicker than they should
  • Outlets or switches are warm to the touch
  • Outlets are completely dead
  • Lightbulbs are popping

Some electricity problems that probably won’t be very dangerous and you could potentially fix by yourself include:

  • Broken light switches
  • System short-circuited 
  • Loose outlet

Before doing any work on your electrical system, make sure to turn off the breaker and cut power wherever you will be working. This will prevent shocks and will make working on your electricity a lot safer. 

If you have any concerns or aren’t sure what you are doing, call Southern Comfort Mechanical. We would be happy to assist you and send a member of our team to your home. You will receive quick, professional service and your electrical system will be fixed in no time. 

If your home is old, then chances are that the wiring system in your home is old too. Unless it has recently been replaced or updated, you will likely begin experiencing problems if you haven’t already. Older wiring systems simply aren’t designed to keep up with the new appliances today. Once you have replaced the old or faulty wiring in your home, you will be amazed at how efficient your new system is. Don’t wait to have your electrical system inspected and, if needed, replaced. The sooner you do it, the sooner you can start enjoying the benefits of a new system and the absence of creepy, flickering lights and burned out bulbs. 

Electricity impacts many different areas of your life, but you may not realize just how vital it is to your day-to-day life until yours is no longer working properly. If your entire electrical system is down, you won’t be able to do laundry, cook with an oven or microwave, run your dishwasher, use heat or air conditioning, blow dry your hair, watch television, or turn on a light. Can you imagine how annoying this would be if it went on for longer than an hour or two?

Even if your whole system isn’t having issues, any one of these areas could separately begin to give you problems. Maybe a connection has gone bad, or a plug been knocked loose, or any number of other, more serious issues could have occurred. In order to restore your life to its normal order, you will need to get your electrical problem diagnosed and repaired as quickly as possible. 

Southern Comfort Mechanical can help you do that. We want you to be as comfortable in your home as possible, which is why we are on call 24/7. No matter the day of the week or time of the day, we will be here to assist you with any emergency or general repairs that you need.  Once you contact our staff, a professional electrician will be sent to your home as soon as possible and will diagnose and repair your electrical system. 

We are so confident that you will be happy with our service that we give a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren’t satisfied with our service, let us know and we will do everything we can to fix the problem until you are happy. Once you have hired Southern Comfort Mechanical, you won’t want to hire another company ever again.

Nobody is happy when their electrical system is on the fritz. Electricity is a huge part of your life and without it you won’t be able to accomplish very much in your home. Your house will be too cold or too hot (depending on the weather), and you won’t be able to see anything or watch TV. You won’t be able to do the chores because your washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher won’t work. You won’t be able to cook a nice dinner because your stove and microwave won’t turn on. Oh, and all the cold food in your home will go bad because your fridge won’t work. 

Yikes. If your entire system is having problems or even just one or two areas, give Southern Comfort Mechanical a call. You won’t regret trusting Southern Comfort with your home’s electricity.
