Electrical Panel Services
The component that does most of the heavy lifting in your electrical system is the electrical panel. It circulates electricity throughout your home. As these boxes age, several things can start to happen. For one, they start to lose their efficiency, which means. This is especially true in homes that were not build with current power demands in mind. If your panel is 100 amp, then it is probably not up to snuff. Upgrade to a 150 to 200 amp box to be able to handle the load properly and safely. Watch for any signs that your breaker box is breaking down. These include a bad odor, corrosion, flickering lights, and random tripping.
In places where there is moisture, such as your kitchen, bathrooms, and outside, it is a good idea to have GFCI outlets installed to keep you safe. They shut down whenever they sense that a current is going through water or even worse, your body. This can avoid shocks and avoid sparks that could cause a fire. Make sure to test your outlets at least every month. If it is not working, then it should be replaced right away. These outlets are of no use to you if they cannot protect your family. Call Baker Brothers to have a GFCI specialist install your outlets.

Power surges are extremely dangerous and should be prevented at all costs. Unfortunately, keeping everything in your home unplugged at all times is not practical or realistic, so surge protectors are the next best thing. They work to only allow enough electricity into the home as is needed. That way, when there is a surge of power because of a lightning strike or faulty wiring, you are protected. Power surges can cause major damage to your home and potentially cause injury through shock or fire.
Ceiling Fan Installation
Make sure that your ceiling fan is the right size for your room. They can look great and provide some additional comfort, but if they are the wrong size they will not be as effective. Smaller rooms should have a 30-inch fan and no larger. For big rooms, such as 18×20, you could use a 52-inch ceiling fan. If the room is any bigger you can go with several fans instead. Make sure to allow for 8 inches of clearance from the ceiling, and 8 feet of clearance to the floor. Never place a ceiling fan above a bed. Contact our specialists in Azle to help you with your next ceiling fan installation.
There comes a time in every home’s life when it needs new wiring. Especially in homes that are several decades old. With those homes, the wiring may have degraded over time. In newer homes, the wiring may not be up to the demand if the contractor used mediocre materials to cut costs.
These warning signs can let you know that it might be time to do some rewiring:
- Circuit breakers frequently trip
- Aluminum wiring. This wiring can become loose and cause fires
- Minor vibration, buzz or shock when turning on appliances
- Flickering or dimming lights when using appliances
- Electrical outlets are loose
- Your home is more than 40 years old
- Outlets give a burning odor
If you see any of these signs in your home, or something unusual, call Baker Brothers today. Make sure you take care of any issues before they become much costlier.
Homeowners have been falling in love with LED lighting for many years, and the number who choose LED continues to grow. They look better, provide better energy efficiency, and only need to be replaced after 20 years or so. Instead of burning out and leaving you completely in the dark, they change color when they need replacing. LED lights can also be directed to highlight a certain area or even a component of your home. Essentially, it looks great and will also help with your energy budget.
Smoke and CO Detectors
Do not leave your family unprotected. Install smoke detectors in every bedroom and at the top of every stairwell. For CO detectors, make sure you have one installed by any bedrooms. It is important that you do not install one closer than 10 feet to any stoves, as this could cause false alarms. To make sure they continue to function, replace the batteries in the smoke detectors every year, and the entire units every 10 years. CO detectors are plugged in, but the units should be replaced after about 7 years.
