Electrical Panel Services
The electrical panel is the brain of your electrical system. Everything goes through the panel before being sent out into the home to power your electronics and appliances. These panels can start to break down as they get older, and they stop working as efficiently as before. If you have an older home with the original panel, then it may only be a 100 amp unit. That was fine in past times, but with all the electronics and devices we use today, a 150 or 200 amp panel is necessary. If your circuits get overloaded, it can cause performance issues and even safety hazards. Keep an eye out for flickering lights, strange smells, and tripping for no discernible reason. An expert at Baker Brothers will assess your panel and decide whether you need to have it replaced.
A GFCI outlet helps to protect against the dangers of electricity coming into contact with water. It can detect when the current is going somewhere it shouldn’t, and cuts off power right away. That way you won’t get shocked and there isn’t any sparking. This makes them the perfect outlets to have installed in the kitchen or the bathroom. These outlets should be tested every month by pressing the “test” button on the face. If it does not cut off the power right away, then it should be replaced as soon as possible.
Exterior and landscape lighting help your home look amazing, even at night. It can help you host social gatherings or enjoy a good book on your patio. One of the other perks about exterior lighting is that it can help keep your home safe. Well-lit homes are less appealing targets than darkened ones. If you have exterior lighting installed, then make sure to keep your system well-maintained. Keep debris away from the fixtures and bulbs, and replace bulbs quickly after they burn out.

Home surge protectors and a reliable way to keep your belongings safe during a power surge. A power surge is caused by too much electricity getting into the electrical system and overloading your electronics. This can damage your electronics and even present a safety hazard. An expert from Baker Brothers in Flower Mound can install a home surge protector so that you can rest easy knowing your electronics and your home are safe.
Ceiling Fan Installation
Installing a ceiling fan is not as simple as it looks. The wiring has to be perfect to make sure that everything works and that there are no safety issues. An electrician from Baker Brothers can help you with your install, but they will also offer guidance on your ceiling fan from size to placement. You must have a fan that is an appropriate size for the room, and there should be enough clearance to the walls, ceiling, and floor to be safe. As well, you should never install a fan directly above a bed. By letting us handle your ceiling fan installation, you can rest easy knowing that it was done right, and done safely.
If your home has faulty wiring, it could lead to big trouble. Over time, wiring starts to operate inefficiently and should be replaced. If your home is over 50 years old and it still has the original wiring, then it is time for an upgrade, for instance.
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 want superior performance to go with superior energy efficiency, then LED may be the choice for you. It offers an incredibly long lifespan. Bulbs can typically last 20 years or more. LED bulbs are also much more energy efficient and give off less heat. Not only that, but they also can be pointed and directed at a certain spot in a room or to highlight a special aspect of the room. When an LED light burns out, it changes color slowly over time. That way you will never be surprised or stuck somewhere in complete blackness. You will have plenty of warning to replace the bulbs.
Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that can seriously harm or kill a person. That is why CO detectors are so important. Install detectors near where people sleep in your home. Do not place them near any ovens, as that could set them off. Test them every month, and replace every CO detector every 7 years.
Smoke detectors should be installed in every bedroom. You can also install them on every floor outside of the bedrooms. Test these every month as well, and replace their batteries every year at the very least.
