At-Home Tips from David Gray Electrical Services

Before you call an electrician for help, you may want to do some basic checks around the house to see if your problem has an easy fix. Here are some tips from our team at David Gray Electrical Services to help you determine whether your problem needs a professional solution.


  • If the power is out in only one part of your house, check the breaker box for a tripped circuit breaker.  If a breaker is tripped, turn it off then on. If you don't see a tripped breaker, try resetting all of the breakers.
  • If you think an electrical outlet isn't working, check it by plugging an appliance into a different outlet. If the appliance works, and you've already checked the circuit breakers, the first outlet may be burned out.
  • If the malfunctioning outlet is a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet, it may just need to be reset. Usually on outlets by sinks, GFCIs protect against surges by cutting power. There is usually a button on the outlet that will reset it.

If your electrical problem needs the attention of a professional, don't hesitate to try our newest service line, David Gray Electrical Services by calling (904) 724-7211.
