Overloaded circuits of your electrical panel can be a safety hazard and affect performance of your electrical system. If you notice a strange smell, or your lights are flickering, then you may have an electrical panel problem. Older panels were made at 100 amps, which is now not enough to power a modern home. New panels are 150 or 200 amps, which can handle the load that is necessary to charge our phones and devices. Give Baker Brothers a call and one of our licensed electricians will come evaluate your panel and system to determine what would be right for your home. They can then do the work of installing a new panel for you.
You should do everything in your power to avoid electricity coming into contact with water. In the bathroom, kitchen, and outdoors, that is sometimes easier said than done. That is where GFCI outlets come in. They are designed to shut down if the current goes through water. This can save you from shock or even sparks. Make sure to test these outlets every month by pressing the “test” button on the face of the outlet. If it does not shut down, then it is not reliable and should be immediately replaced. Contact a specialist in Denton to help.
Exterior and Landscape Lighting Installation
LIghting the exterior of your home in a tasteful and stylish way can add some great curb appeal and provide some functionality and safety. A well lit yard is great for entertaining, and also helpful if you need to find your keys in the dark. Your home will also be better protected against would-be criminals and others who might do your home or you harm. Make sure to keep your exterior lights well-maintained. Clean out any garden debris from your fixtures, and replace bulbs right away if they burn out.
Electrical Safety Tips
Never take electricity for granted. Just because you have never felt threatened by it does not mean it isn’t dangerous or deadly. Practice good habits to keep yourself safe.
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.
Surge suppressors work to prevent power surges. Power surges are most often the result of a lightning strike or faulty wiring. If you have a power surge, it can overload your electronics and cause serious damage. You may even get sparking. This is why it is always a good idea to back-up your work and unplug computers during thunderstorms. A home surge suppressor is more reliable than traditional ones, and the specialists at Baker Brothers can install one for you to keep you and your electronics safe.
Ceiling Fan installation
If you are looking at installing ceiling fans in your home, then contact us for help. We can provide you with the guidance you need to buy the right fan and install it in the right place. We will also handle the wiring for you so you can rest easy knowing it was done properly and safely. Make sure you place the fan in a spot where there is at least 18 inches between the nearest wall and the blades. You should also leave 8 inches to the ceiling, and 8 feet to the floor. Also, never install a fan directly above a bed.
There are a few reasons why your home might be in need of rewiring. The wiring might be very old, and is not working properly anymore. It could also be new wiring, but just not of good quality. Bad wires can lead to bad problems for an electrical system.
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
If you are among the millions who are making LED their lighting choice, then Baker Brothers can help. LED lighting offer superior lighting, along with superior energy saving properties. You can have great light, as well as save money on your bills. LED bulbs last 25 times longer than incandescent ones, and use much less energy. They also give off less heat, which means they are not a fire hazard. When they start to burn out, they will change color so that you are alerted. That way, you do not have to be left in the dark when they suddenly don’t work any more.
Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detectors
Carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are often taken for granted, but they save thousands of lives every year. You should have a smoke detector in every bedroom, and on every floor. You need to make sure they are in working order every month, otherwise they are not protecting you. Change out the batteries once a year, even if the detector is wired into your electrical system.
CO detectors should be plugged in close to any bedrooms. Do not place one near the stove, as this could cause false alarms. Make sure to test your CO detectors every month as well. You should replace all of them every 5-7 years.
