Electrical Problems at Home? Call Utility First!

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If you're having electrical problems in your home, before you call an electrician call your utility.

The electricity was off on one side, then it was on again, so she called an electrician.

"The electrician comes out and checks the breaker box. He said, 'when I tested the legs coming into the house, you've got 120 on one side and 40 on the other side, it is a good thing you called that's why your stove and microwave (are) not working'," said Bennett.
