Frequently Asked Questions

When should you call an emergency electrician?

There are three main instances when you should consider calling an emergency electrician.

    • If you feel your own safety is compromised, you shouldn’t hesitate to call an emergency electrician. At the very least, a qualified electrician should be able to assess over the phone the gravity of the situation
    • Presence of smoke or if you smell burning near your electrical outlets and/or appliances such as a washing machine and a dishwasher. This could be the sign of a power surge which could ultimately cause fire.
    • Exposed wires or electrical sparks. These issues should be fixed immediately as they can be very hazardous especially if you have young children in your house

How much does it cost to call an emergency electrician?

The cost of calling an emergency electrician can vary greatly and depends on multiple factors:

    • The area you live in and distance from the electrical contractor.
    • The day you are calling. Weekdays tend to be cheaper than weekends.
    • The time you call. It’s always cheaper between 9 and 5.

Hardwired Electricians has very competitive rates for all emergency calls.

How do I find the best emergency electrician near me?

Choosing the right emergency electrician can be a very difficult decision to make especially if you are facing a stressful situation. If, like most people, you are searching on the internet for the best option, we advise you look at electricians’ online ratings and comments. It will only take you a few seconds to make the right choice. Hardwired Electricians has excellent Google reviews.

What is an electrical emergency?

Apart from routine electrical work, most people don’t see an electrician unless there is some sort of emergency. So, what constitutes an electrical emergency?

Burning wires – burning wires have a very distinctive smell, either metallic or plastic, and represent an electrical emergency. Basically, the smell is an indicator that you could soon have an electrical fire if the wires continue to overheat. The burning can indicate a bad connection or a faulty wire. Cut the power immediately and call your 24-hour Durban electrician. 

Buzzing or humming coming from the breaker box or fuse box – this can mean that the circuit breakers are not working, they are trying to trip off the power but something is preventing them from doing so. This can be incredibly dangerous because there is a fault in the electrical system and the circuit breakers are unable to disconnect the power.

Smoke coming from an outlet – remember the old saying that there is no smoke without fire? Smoke emitting from an outlet can mean that there is something smoldering in your electrical wiring system. Shut off the power and call an emergency electrician in Durban.

Loss of power – the response to this will depend upon whether the power outage affects just your house or the whole road. If it is an outage affecting more than one property then this is usually a matter for the energy supplier or the municipality that looks after the infrastructure. However, if it is just one property then there could be a fault that will need to be investigated by an Durban electrician.

An electrical fire – this is an emergency for which you should call Hardwired Electricians. Once any risk to life has been eliminated then an electrician will perform an assessment to establish what caused the fire in the first place.

What to look for when Searching for an electrician in Durban

Whether it’s an emergency or you just want a Durban electrician for routine electrical maintenance, you want the best and most trustworthy. Below are some things to look out for when searching for a reliable electrician in Durban and surrounding areas.

1. Your Durban electrician must be qualified and licensed

An unlicensed electrician is a complete no-no. Electrical work is not easy and requires years of apprenticeship, besides several other accreditation and licenses. Using a fully qualified electrician means your warranty isn’t void for starters. You have to be able to rely on their work and have confidence in their ability. After all, completing unlicensed electrical work is illegal across South Africa.

2. 24 Hour 7 Days a Week Electricians

It’s frustrating when electricians won’t come at a time that suits you. Usually, you have to take time off work and wait around at home for hours. And nobody wants that! Ideally, you want an electrician who operates 24/7 and can be at your door when it suits you. That’s why Hardwired Electricians schedules electricians around the clock for your convenience. We can arrange for one of our electrical contractors to call no matter what time of day it is. And we always do our best to live up to our promise of within an hour same day service!

3. Client Reviews

Typically, one of the most reliable ways to see how good the client service you are going to get is, is to look at their client reviews online and on Google. Look at their reviews online to see the experience other people have had with them. This alone can help in the selection process.

4. Punctual Electricians

You want an electrician that arrives at a suitable time. You don’t want an electrician who says they’ll arrive at midday and finally turn up at 2 pm with a coke in one hand and a pie in the other. There is nothing worse than taking the day off work for electrical service, only for them to rock up late or not at all. Punctuality is essential when it comes to booking an electrician in Durban.

5. Clear Electrical Pricing

For a routine job, you should know exactly what the price or cost is before things start. An electrician should tell you how much it is and provide upfront costs. Especially during uncertain times. We never recommend consenting to work until you have a clear knowledge of the price. Every Hardwired Electrician informs you of the price first up, eliminating any nasty surprises. They provide upfront pricing unlike many of the other electrical contractors.

6. Well Presented Electricians

No-one wants to clean up after an electrician has supposedly finished. Cleaning up is part of the job and something that every Hardwired Electrician does as a matter of course.

All of our staff at Hardwired Electricians will arrive at your home in a recognizable uniform. They will always be friendly and courteous. Most importantly, they’ll leave your home in the same state they found it, ensuring any mess is swept up and rubbish disposed of.
