Electrical Panel Service
The electrical panel is a vital component of your electrical system. All power is distributed through that box to your electronics and appliances. Its circuits get overloaded, then you can start to experience problems with your power. Older panels may only be 100 amps. In past times, that may have been enough. Nowadays, though, with our phones, devices, and laptops, we need 150-200 amps. If you notice a strange smell, or tripping, or flickering lights, then you may have an issue. An expert from Baker Brothers will inspect your panel to see if it appropriate for your power needs, and replace it if needed.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
A GFCI outlet cuts off power when it senses that the current is going through water. This is a vital safety feature for outlets located in kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoors. Electrician that comes into contact with water can be very dangerous. These outlets must be checked on a regular basis to make sure they are still working. Press the “test” button on the front. If the power cuts off, then it is working correctly. If not, then you must replace the outlet as soon as possible. If it is not reliable, then do not take any chances.
Exterior Lighting Installation
If you have a yard to be proud of, then what is the point if you can’t enjoy it at any time of day. Exterior and landscape lighting allow you to have friends over at night outside, or just to be able to look great compared to your neighbors. Homes with exterior lighting are also less likely to be targeted by criminals. Just make sure to keep your fixtures clear of debris, and replace your burned out bulbs quickly. Call Baker Brothers so our experts can help design an outdoor lighting system that will look great and be functional as well.
Electrical Safety Tips
We use electricity every day. The more we are used to it, the more likely we are to forget that it can be dangerous. It is important to always be vigilant to keep ourselves safe when using or managing electricity.
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
- Schedule annual electrical inspections by licensed electricians
- Unplug appliances that emit sparks
- Use tamper-proof receptacles to protect children and adults from shocks
We hope these tips keep you and your family safe.
Home Surge Protectors
Home surge protectors are more reliable than traditional ones, and the specialists at Baker Brothers can install one for your home. They only allow enough energy into your electrical system for what you need, and no more. A power surge is when too much energy comes into your system and overloads your electronics. This can happen during lightning strikes. A power surge can damage your electronics, but also spark and cause fires.
Ceiling Fan Installation
The right ceiling fan looks great and also provides a function to go with its looks. However, you never want one to be installed incorrectly, as it could affect performance and be unsafe. Make sure you have the right size, otherwise the room could be overwhelmed or not properly covered by the fan. There should always be 8-9 inches between the blades and the ceiling, and 8 feet to the floor. Having an expert install your ceiling fan means that you can rest easy knowing the job was done right. Speaking of resting easy, never install a fan above a bed.
Bad wiring can lead to injury risks, or risks of damaged properly. Even if it doesn’t lead to those things, it can affect the performance of your electronics. Wiring can break down over time, and substandard wiring will break down quickly.
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.
LED Lighting Installation
LED lighting provides a great look to go with its environmentally friends features. LED bulbs will help you save money on your energy bills and also on replacement costs. They can last 20 years, and they use less energy than incandescents. They also give off less heat and are not a fire hazard. Finally, LED lights allow you to direct light in any direction you choose, unlike traditional bulbs.
Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors save lives every day. Make sure to install one in every bedroom. You should also have one at the top of every stairwell. Test them every month to make sure they are still protecting you, and change out their batteries every year.
CO detectors also save lives. Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, so you only know that you are in danger through a sensor and an alarm. Plug one in near any sleeping areas, but not too close to an oven. Ovens can cause false alarms. Make sure to replace your CO detectors every 7 years.
