Meehan Electrical Services's Most Common Power Surge Causes in Athens
Athens power surges can be very harmful to both your wallet and your property. That is why it is best to know what has the ability to cause power surges so you can to prevent them.
- Lightning/electrical storms - Lightning striking near your property or electrical lines has the ability to be the most dangerous source of power surges. Lightning can render all your devices useless, so during a storm, it is safest to unplug them.
- Overused outlets/circuits - Often behind desks or TVs there are many devices plugged into an outlet, which causes a tangled web of cords. Not only is this unsightly, but it is dangerous as well. If an outlet is overburdened, it can cause power surges or even electrical fires.
- High energy consuming devices - Electronics that consume lots of energy to operate such as elevators, refrigerators, and air conditioners, can cause power surges. If while using high energy-consuming electronics you notice any lights flickering, it would be wise to turn the device off.
- Worn or exposed wiring - If your house is older and you have not yet updated your wiring, you may be at risk for a power surge. Especially if your wiring is damaged, the electrical current is not able to travel in the correct way, causing a surge. Exposed wiring should not be handled, so consult an Athens electrician at Meehan Electrical Services if you suspect you might have some.

★★★★★ - "My favorite thing about your company is that you do what you say you will do, and you do it well. Phone calls get answered. Problems get fixed. Work is done on time. I always know my home is safe when Lamar is there."
Mark in Athens, GA2013-04-03
★★★★★ - "Took an extra day over other services to get them out but the job was done cheaper than getting others to walk through my door. Can't even express how happy I was with the finished job. We didn't have a part they needed to complete the job and instead of just leaving or charging me large amounts to get it, we asked to add in another job while we ran to get the part. They did the extra so now I have two projects that were done to perfection. The only problem I have is everything they did looks so good that I need to replace more. Will call you every time!!!"

★★★★★ - "This afternoon I called Meehan Electrical Services to get an estimate for a service call to my home. Jeff Meehan answered the phone and I described the problem, two electrical outlets that had suddenly stopped working. Jeff listened to me carefully, asked several questions, and then he was able to troubleshoot my problem over the phone. I don't know anything about electrical matters and I was nervous about even approaching the breaker box, but Jeff was patient and he took the time to explain everything to me as he went. I followed his suggestions, and the outlets are working fine now. I will definitely use Meehan Electrical Services for any electrical matters in the future. I am pleased and so grateful to God for the blessing I received today through Jeff Meehan."
