The electrical panel regulates and distributes power to the building. Like anything else, they can start to malfunction as they get older. You might notice tripping, or a strange smell, or flickering lights. These can all be signs of issues with your panel. If your home still has the original 100 amp box, then it may be that it can’t handle how much power your home uses. If circuits get overloaded it can be a serious safety hazard. An electrician from Baker Brothers can inspect your panel for problems and replace it if needed with a 200 amp unit that can handle your modern needs.
A GFCI outlet works to prevent injury and fire by shutting off when it senses the current going somewhere it shouldn’t. In most cases, this means moisture, which is why these outlets are perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. These outlets are only useful if they are working properly, so make sure to test them every month. All you need to do is press the “test” button and it should cut off power. If it does not, then your outlet is not working properly and should be replaced. Contact one of our electricians in Grand Prairie to install GFCI outlets or to replace your malfunctioning ones.
Exterior and Landscape Lighting Installation
We all wnat our homes to stand out from the crowd. There are many ways to achieve this, but outdoor lighting might be the best if done properly. A well-lit home will provide some pizzazz to your street, and certainly make your home stick out. Not only that, but it is safer as well. Not just so that you can see properly while walking around. Well-lit homes are easier for emergency services to find, and also are less likely to be targeted by criminals. Call us today to help design and install your exterior lighting.
We use electricity every day, and it is a big part of every aspect of our lives. That said, we can never take it for granted. It is still dangerous if not managed correctly.
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.
If the circuits in your home are overloaded suddenly, it is called a power surge. A power surge can damage your electronics and potentially cause sparking and fires. To protect against them, you should consider having surge protectors installed in your home. Surge protectors only allow enough electricity as is needed into your system. That way you can be safe against the effects of a power surge. A home surge protector is more reliable than a standard surge protector, and our experts can have one installed for you in no time.
Ceiling Fan Installation
When you decide to buy a ceiling fan, make sure you get the right size. Too big means that the room may be overwhelmed with the breeze. Too small, and it won’t be able to reach every corner of the room. An expert from Baker Brothers can help advise you with choosing a ceiling fan, and help with placement. A fan should always be at least 18 inches from the nearest wall, 8 inches from the ceiling, and 8 feet from the floor. They should also never be installed overtop of any beds.
There are probably millions of homes out there without adequate wiring. This is because it can degrade as it gets older. Even in newer homes, the wiring might be failing because the contractor used lower quality materials to save on costs.
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.
Baker Brothers provides full service for all of your LED lighting needs in Grand Prairie. Looking for a more efficient way to light your home? LED bulbs use much less energy than traditional bulbs and can last up to 20 years. They also do not burn out in the same way as incandescent bulbs. Instead of the light simply disappearing on you, they slowly change color, os you know when it is time to replace them. LED lighting also allows you to direct lighting to a certain part of the room or to highlight a piece of furniture or other component of a room.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Make sure you are never unprepared. Smoke detectors should be installed in every bedroom and at the top of every stairwell. Make sure you change their batteries and test them every year. They are no good to you if they are not working. Baker Brothers can also wire your smoke detectors into your home, but you will still need batteries as backup. CO detectors are plugged in and should be placed near any bedrooms. They should also have a working backup battery. A CO detector should be replaced every 7 years at the most.
