Breaker Box Service
The very nerve center of your home is the breaker box. It regulates power as it comes into your home and sends it throughout the house for use. If you have an older box that is only 100 amps, then you may be in need of an upgrade to a 150 or even 200 amp unit. As breaker boxes start to break down, you could start having troubles with flickering lights and frequent tripping. An expert from Baker Brothers can inspect your breaker box to see if it is malfunctioning, and replace it with a more appropriate one if need be. Call our experienced Lewisville technicians to help with all of your breaker box servicing needs.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Outlets
GFCI outlets are a great way to stay safe when using electricity in the kitchen, bathroom, or even outdoors. They will shut down if they sense the current going somewhere it shouldn’t, such as through water. Water conducts electricity, so if they come into contact you are at risk of getting shocked or worse. Make sure to test these outlets regularly so you know they are still working properly. If not, replace them right away because they are of no use if they cannot be reliable. Our experts at Baker Brothers can install your GFCI outlets so you can stay safe.

Too much electricity gets into the system all at once, overloading your electronics. A home surge protector is a reliable way to only allow the energy you need to enter the electrical system. Call Baker Brothers to install a surge home surge suppressor so you do not have to worry during lightning and thunderstorms.
One of the most often overlooked factors when choosing a ceiling fan is size. You cannot have a fan that is too big, or else it won’t adequately cover the room, and you don’t want to go too small, or else it could overwhelm. One of our knowledgeable electricians can give you the right measurements to use when choosing your new fan. They can also install it and make sure that everything is running smoothly and safely. They will follow safety precautions such as making sure that there are 8 inches from the blade to the ceiling, and 8 feet to the floor.

- 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

LED lights are a hot option right now, since they can offer so much more than traditional bulbs can. First off, they use much less energy, so your power bills will be lower. They can also last up to 25 years, so you won’t have to worry about replacement any time soon. LED lights can also be directed at a certain spot or area, unlike incandescent bulbs. LED lights do not suddenly burn out. They gradually fade and change color so you know when to replace them without being left in the dark. Call us today for more information on LED lighting options.
Smoke and CO Detectors
Smoke detectors will alert you if there is a fire in the home. Make sure to have one installed in every bedroom. You should also have one installed at the top of every stairwell. Test your detectors every month, and change out the batteries at least once a year. Carbon monoxide detectors should be plugged in near any bedrooms. They should be at least 10 feet away from an oven because they can cause false alarms. Make sure to replace your CO detectors every 7 years.
