One of the most important components of your electrical system is the electric panel. It is where the electricity comes into the home and is distributed throughout. Over time, the circuits in the panel can start to degrade and possibly malfunction. Older homes with their original panels may also have trouble handling the demand that modern life puts on it. Your breaker box should be at least 150 amps, and it would even better to be 200 amps. Contact Baker Brothers to check out your panel to make sure it is up to snuff. If you notice any signs such as a bad odor, or flickering lights, then it may be time for a new electric panel to service your home.
Bathrooms, kitchens, and the outdoors all provide a significant risk of electricity coming into contact with water. GFCI outlets help prevent shocks and sparks if this ever happens. If the outlets sense the current going off course, it will shut off power immediately. Make sure that you test these outlets every month. All you have to do is hit the “test” button. If the outlet shuts down, then you know it is working. If it isn’t working, then you need to replace it right away. Once a GFCI outlet has been activated, then all you need to do to reactivate the power is to hit the “reset” button on the face of the outlet.

Do not take electrical safety lightly. It can take less than a second for a bolt of electricity to cause serious harm.
Follow the safety tips below to help keep you and your family safe:
- Don’t cover up extension cords with carpet
- Only use extension cords when you need them. They are not made for permanent use
- Change cords immediately if you see any damage
- If you experience an electrical fire use a fire extinguisher to put it out. Never use water

- Unplug appliances that emit sparks
- Use tamper-proof receptacles to protect children and adults from shocks

Power Surge Protection
Power surges pose a threat to your safety, and also to your electronics. If too much electricity suddenly enters your home, then your electronics can get fried and outlets could spark. To protect against this, surge protectors only allow as much power into your home as you need. That way no circuits will be overloaded and you and your property will be safe. Home surge protection is even more reliable than standard surge protection. Call us today to have your home surge protection installed.
Ceiling Fan Installation
If you are looking at adding the comfort and look of a ceiling fan to your home, make sure to contact Baker Brothers to have it done safely. Ceiling fan blades should always be 8 inches from the ceiling and 8 feet from the floor, as well as 18 inches from any walls. For sizing, a 30-inch fan should be just fine for a standard 8’ x 10’ room. For medium-sized rooms at 12’ x 12’, then go with a 42-inch fan. In a larger room that is approximately 18’ x 20’, use a 52-inch fan. For anything bigger, consider using more than one fan.
Rewiring Your Home
If your home has old wiring, or if you have a new home that was built with substandard wiring, then you may need rewiring services. Bad wiring is especially a concern when you have newer electronics. If they can’t handle the demand, then they could cause fires.
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.
Many people are looking at ways of reducing their energy bills. LED lighting may be the perfect way to do just that, while also providing an appealing look. LED lights can last around 20 years. When they burn out, you are warned that a replacement is needed because they start to dim and change color. They also use less energy than incandescent bulbs. By investing in LED lighting, you will save on replacing the bulbs and also save on your bills. LED lighting also provides some exciting options, such as the ability to direct the light in the direction you want.
Smoke and CO Detectors
You need a warning system in your home for harmful gases, and smoke detectors and CO detectors do the trick. Install a smoke detector in every bedroom and on every floor. CO detectors can be placed near any area where there are bedrooms. Make sure to change out your smoke detector batteries every year, and replace your CO detectors every 5 years.
