Electrical Panel Service
The electrical panel sends power throughout your home when you need it for lights or to charge your phone. You probably do not think much about it unless it starts malfunctioning. Like anything else, it can degrade over time. If you notice flickering, tripping, or a strange smell, it might be a sign that your breaker box has an issue. In old homes, the box may not even be up to handling the demands of a modern home. Many older boxes are only 100 amps, and we no need up to 200 amps for everything we do. If you suspect an issue with your electrical panel, call Baker Brothers to inspect it and make it right.
Installing GFCI outlets in your bathrooms, kitchen, and outdoors is a great way to protect your family and your home. These outlets sense when the current is going through water or through a person and shut down to prevent problems. Water and electricity can mean sparks and fire, and water can also conduct electricity and cause a shock to a person. Make sure to test these outlets every month by pressing the “test” button. If it does not shut down, then you need to get our Irving experts to replace your outlet right away.
Landscape and Outdoor Lighting Installation
We can design and install a beautiful outdoor lighting system that will make your neighbors jealous. Outdoor lighting can help provide some illumination for your outdoor gatherings, and also highlight certain aspects of your home. Lights on the exterior of your home also make it less desirable for criminals to target. Once we have installed your lighting, make sure to keep debris such as leaves and branches away from your fixtures, and replace the bulbs as soon as possible if they burn out or get damaged.
No matter how much awareness there is, people are injured by electricity every day. It is important to practice safe electrical habits at all times.
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.
A home surge suppressor can help keep you and your electronics safe in the event of a power surge. Power surges tend to happen during lightning storms, because too much power can be suddenly introduced into your home. A surge suppressor makes sure that only the right amount of electricity can get into your electrical system. Power surges can damage your electronics and even cause fires, so they are very dangerous.
Ceiling Fan Installation
Ceiling fans are not as simply as they look. Depending on where they are installed, there may be some complicated wiring involved. Make sure to call the professionals at Baker Brothers to handle your ceiling fan installation so that it not only works, but is installed safely as well. There should be at least 8 inches from the blades to the ceiling, as well as 8 feet to the ground. A professional will be able to advise you on how to get the most out of your fan through its placement, and provide you with safety instructions, too.
You may have wiring that was installed half a century ago. Then again, you might have wiring that was installed last year, but is substandard because the contractor needed to cut costs. Whatever the reason, your home may need rewiring.
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 provides superior lighting with superior energy efficiency. These are the reasons why is rapidly gaining popularity. Bulbs can last for 20 years, which is 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. They also do not suddenly burn out and leave you blind. They slowly change color so that you know when it is time for a replacement. LED lights can be directed to highlight certain areas of a room, as well. For looks, and for a lighter pocketbook, LED lighting is the way to go.
CO and Smoke Detectors
Keeping your family safe should be one of your main priorities. CO and smoke detectors can help with that. For maximum protection, install a smoke detector in every bedroom and stairwell, and a CO detector near any sleeping areas. A Baker Brothers electrician can wire the smoke detectors into your home electrical system, but you will still need backup batteries for them. Make sure to change the batteries every year, and to test the detectors every month. Your CO detectors can be changed out every 7 years.
