Customer: Hi, my name is***** am the residential manager for a house with a tenant who is having electrical issues. The house is not up to code. The tenant has been having intermittent outlet
issues with one side of the house, and has been using a heavy gauge power cord
from the bathroom to power a bedroom. The problem started when we had a really heavy rain, and they have run the power cord ever since. Could this power cord be the reason the electric bill has spiked in the last month and a half?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The circuit breaker
for the upstairs unit is downstairs, and the plug the power cord is plugged into is the kind that has the test/reset button so they aren't tripping the circuit downstairs
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Electrical Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: how long of a wait, i'm on my lunch break
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
