This is a great benefit to customers, who can handle some issues without waiting around for a service call or shelling out tons of cash. The electrician Plano homeowners can call for advice is Electric Man, and here are a few scenarios that have been resolved over the phone:
- A non-functional air conditioner can be a big problem! Fortunately, it is also problem that can sometimes be solved over the phone. Because the air conditioning system is complex, it could be any number of things, but one of the most common issues is a circuit breaker that has been tripped by a power surge. A kindly electrician can help you solve this over the phone, or walk you through determining if it is a different problem.
- The outside outlets have stopped working. This is an issue around the holidays, when people plug in their Christmas lights and discover that the outdoor power is out.

A GFCI is a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, and external outlets are fitted with it for safety reasons. Anyone can reset the GFCI, and an electrician does not need to be there; he can talk you through it over the phone.
- Ceiling fans can have issues. Especially if you installed it yourself, unclear directions may have confused you. Because most ceiling fans have four wires that hook into three leads in your ceiling, it can be tricky, figuring out which wire hooks up to which lead. An electrician can explain how to connect the wires, and in which order. Even if you did not install the ceiling fan yourself, you may have trouble with the lights flickering. This is not usually an electrical problem, but a problem with the light bulbs. Though compact fluorescents save energy, they are not usually a good fit with ceiling fans, which are typically installed on lighting dimmers. A good electrician can tell you when something as simple as a bulb change can solve your problem.
