The breaker box is the nerve center of your entire electrical system. It regulates and distributes power throughout the home for use in your electronics and appliances. As it ages, it can start functioning inefficiently. Also, older panels may be only 100 amps, which is not enough to power modern homes. Overloaded circuits are a safety hazard, so it is important that your box is up to the task of handling your power demands. If you notice flickering lights, strange odors, or breakers tripping for seemingly no reason, then you might have an issue with your breaker box. Contact the experts at Baker Brothers who will examine your panel and replace it with one that can handle the load.
A ground fault circuit interrupter is designed to protect you and your family from shocks and sparks around water. These outlets shut down as soon as they sense that the current is flowing through moisture, or through a human body. Water and electricity do not mix, so make sure to install these in your bathroom and kitchen. There are of no use if they are not working, so test your GFCI outlets every month by testing them. If the outlet does not shut off, then it is not working. Contact one of our Benbrook electricians to replace the outlet with a new one.

Surge suppressors, also known as surge protectors, protect you and your home against overloaded circuits from power surges. Power surges can cause damage to your electronics and the sparks can light fires or cause injury. A surge suppressor only allows enough electricity through to power your home. This prevents the circuits from getting overloaded. Home surge protectors are even more reliable than standard surge protectors, so contact us to learn more about installing one for your home.
We have specialists on staff who can help with your next ceiling fan installation. There are some things you should know ahead of time, however. For one, make sure to buy the right size fan for the room in which you are installing. For small rooms, go with a 30-inch product. For medium-sized rooms, a 42-inch fan would be appropriate. For large rooms, such as 18’x20’, go with a 52-inch fan. For anything bigger, you should consider multiple fans. Contact Baker Brothers for expert advice. We will make sure that the fan is installed to allow 8 inches from the ceiling and 8 feet from the floor, and never overtop of a bed.
In some older homes, the wiring might be as old as 50 years. If that’s the case, then you are probably in need of an upgrade. Wiring can degrade with time, and if your wiring can’t handle the load, then you could be at risk.
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.
