Power Outage Check List

  • Check Your Circuit Breaker Box
    If you lose power suddenly, check to see if other rooms are still getting electricity. If so, check your home’s electrical panel for a tripped circuit breaker. If you see any that are shifted to the left and in an “off” position, that may be your cause. If you push it back to the “on” position and it trips again, you may need to call the pros at RME.
  • Check If Neighbors Have Power
    If you see that your neighbors seem to be affected. If you don’t see any lights and see people standing outside, a power grid failure might be the culprit.
  • Check the Weather Conditions
    If severe weather such as wind, lightning, or heavy rain is occurring, that very well may be the problem. It’s not uncommon for stormy weather to cause a power outage, for just a few seconds up to a couple of weeks.
  • Check with Your Utility Provider
    You may be pretty sure that weather is the cause of your power outage, however it’s still a good idea to contact your utility provider to make sure they are aware. Also, power outages can sometimes be the result of a downed power line or power grid failure, which they can usually share with you, along with an estimate for when your power will be restored.
