Electrical Panel Services
If your electrical panel isn’t working, then it can affect things in your entire home. All the power in your home has to go through the panel first, so if it isn’t running efficiently, you may have some problems. Keep an eye out for issues like flickering, tripping, and strange odors. Problems are especially common with older boxes that may only be 100 amps. The modern home requires 150 – 200 amps, so your circuits may be getting overloaded, which can be a safety hazard. Contact the electricians at Baker Brothers to inspect your panel and install a new one if you need it.
In rooms that have more moisture than others, such as the kitchen and bathrooms, you may want to install GFCI outlets. These outlets keep you safe from shocks and sparks by cutting off the power supply if it detects that the current is going through water. You must test them every month by pressing the “test” button on the face of the outlet. If it cuts off, then all is well. If not, then you should replace the outlet immediately. It is no good to you if it cannot be relied upon.
In a dark neighborhood, the home that has great exterior lighting is the one that will stand out amongst the others. That is why custom exterior lighting is so popular. It’s great for entertaining, great for aesthetics, and also great for safety. A home with lots of lighting is less likely to be targeted by crooks and other unsavory characters. Make sure that you keep your outdoor lighting well maintained. Debris, such as branches and leaves, can damage your fixtures. A burnt out bulb can harm the overall look as well. Call Baker Brothers to develop your custom exterior lighting design for the yard of your dreams.
We use electricity every day, and for the most part we don’t get harmed, but that does not mean it isn’t dangerous. You must respect electricity at all times, or else you could be at risk of injury or worse.
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.
When too much electricity gets into an electrical system all at once, it can cause a power surge. Power surges can damage electronics and cause shocks and fires. To protect against this, you should install a surge suppressor for your home. A home surge suppressor is more reliable than a standard product. A suppressor works by only allowing enough energy into the system that you need to power your home. That way your electronics will not be susceptible to a surge.
As a homeowner, installing a ceiling fan is a great way to get some comfort and also to provide a certain aesthetic to your home. One of the most important things is to get a fan that is an appropriate size for the room. It it’s too big it could overwhelm the room, in both look and feel. If it’s too small, it may look strange and also not provide coverage for the entire room. Our experts can help you choose the right fan, and also install it safely for you. That way you will have the best fan for your room, and the confidence that it was installed correctly.
Wires can wear down over time, and their performance will suffer. Also, newer wires that are not very good quality will wear down faster. If your wires are not up to the task of handling the needs of your home, then you could have a problem.
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 lights are simply a superior alternative to traditional incandescents. They provide directional light, so you can point it at a certain area of the room. They also can last up to 25 years. Not only that, but they use less energy and give off less heat. This means that LED bulbs are more expensive up front, they also give back money on your energy bills and replacement costs, and are less likely to cause a fire. On top of all this, they do not blow out suddenly and leave you in the dark or an unsafe situation. They slowly burn out and change color as they do, so you will always know when it is time for replacement.
Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas that can be deadly if someone is exposed for too long. Make sure to install detectors in any area where there are bedrooms. Do not install them too close to the oven, however, as this can cause false alarms. Make sure to switch out your CO detectors every 7 years.
Smoke detectors should be installed in every bedroom, and on every floor. We can wire them to your electrical system, but you should still have batteries in them just in case. Make sure to test your units every year and replace the batteries at the same time.
