How to restore power in your home! Before you call the electrician

Try these few simple steps and you could avoid unecessary, costly electrical service fees. I cannot tell you how many service calls We get every year that could be resolved in just a few simple steps. Here is one of the most common electrical problems we encounter over and over again.

The power is out to several outlets in your home.

Try this...

1). Go to the electrical panel and open the cover

2). Flip each circuit breaker to the off position

3). One at a time flip each circuit breaker back to the on position

4). Go back into the house and check for power using a lamp or other electric device if you do not have a voltage tester

If this did not solve the problem complet the following steps 5 through 8

5). Search every room of your home for a GFCI outlet. (GFCI outlets are most commonly found in bathrooms, kitchens and garages).

6). Once you have located the GFCI outlet push the button labeled "TEST"located on the device

7). Now push the button labeled "RESET" located on the device

8 ). Go back through your home and check the outlets again using the same method as step 5


*Note: If the GFCI will not reset you either have a short in the circuit or there is no power to the GFCI. At this point you shoud contact a local electrician to troubleshoot the circuit.
