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.

★★★★★ - "I called Meehan Electrical because I had a very unusual electrical problem. I spoke with Mr. Meehan directly and he indicated that the problem I had was probably at my electrical company's end. He took the time over the phone to explain this to me. It turned out it was definitely at my electrical company's end. He went above and beyond giving me good and sound free advice.

★★★★★ - "Meehan’s were called to our house to check whole house electrical wiring because a fire started at electrical outlet in bedroom, after a storm that took down trees in the area. We found Meehans through the Nextdoor app for our community. John was fantastic service technician, he was professional and wore his mask and gloves and the temperature outside was a sweltering 89-90 degrees his first concern was with the fire area, so he replaced the receptacle and explained the different colors and their meanings of fire damaged wires and checked the wiring in the wall and checked several outlets and ensured us that they’re was no damage to the wiring of the house, he even went under the house to check on the blower in our air handler because we have no air. This is a fantastic company that goes the extra mile and I will refer them to anyone that needs any electrical work."
Meashell I., Electric Repair in Athens, GA2020-11-19
★★★★★ - "Efficient service over the phone by Jeff Meehan on a Sunday. He walked me through every step to determine the break had tripped due to high voltage by kitchen appliances. We initially placed an emergency call back with the answering service at 1:30 pm EST, a second call at 2:45 pm and by 4:00 pm we were back in service throughout the kitchen by Jeff's phone call. When he called and assessed the situation as best he could over the phone, then offered to walk through on the call of "turning off & on" every circuit within the breaker box he had us back up and running without a costly weekend emergency service call. Then, took time to explain what he thought occurred plus gave expert advice on the next steps to prevent reoccurrence. Tks for the assistance and we'll be contacting you soon Jeff to proceed with the next steps. Again, quality efficient local service..support local! Keep it up Jeff M. and the Meehan's."

★★★★★ - "Jeff Meehan was wonderful. He was quick to answer my call and saved me hundreds, possibly thousands of dollars. I came home at 5 o’clock and my house was going crazy with less than a third of my house was working. He told me to call Ga Power and tell them I had lost a leg of power. He was right, they came and the leg was fixed free of charge. Very professional."

★★★★★ - "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."

We did and that was indeed the problem and the problem was solved at no cost to us. We are grateful for Jeff's prompt response and accurate advice."
