Breaker Box Services
Every bit of electricity that runs through your home goes through the breaker box first. It regulates and distributes the power to the electronics and appliances that need it. If your circuits get overloaded, not only will it cause performance issues, but it can be a safety hazard as well. If you have tripping, or flickering lights, or even a strange smell in your home, then you may have a problem with the breaker box. Call one of our experts and we can evaluate your box and the entire system to see what is right for you home. You may need to upgrade an old 100 amp box to a 200 amp one to handle the additional power needs of modern homes.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Outlets
Since electricity is extremely dangerous if it comes into contact with water, you need something to keep you safe when using electricity in your bathrooms and kitchen. That’s where a GFCI outlet comes in. It will cut off the power supply if the current goes through water, which will save you from getting shocked. These outlets should be tested every month. If the outlet fails the test, then you should replace it immediately so that you can maintain the protection. Shocks can be deadly.
Exterior Lighting Installation
There are many reasons why installing landscape lighting is a great choice for your home. It will definitely improve the curb appeal, for instance. It will also help you see better if you come home or leave in the morning in the dark. It is also nicer for social gatherings at night. Not only that, but good lighting can keep you safe from criminals and others who might target your home. At Baker Brothers, we have experts who can help you design a lighting system that looks great and is easy to manage. Just make sure to keep debris away from your fixtures and replace bulbs promptly after they burn out.
Always treat electricity with respect. While is a big presence in our everyday lives, that does not mean that it cannot injure you or kill you.
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.
One of the causes of damage to your electronics from your electrical system is power surges. Usually, these occur because of lightning strikes, but they can be caused by poor wiring as well. Make sure to protect your home from sparking and damage by getting a home surge protector installed. These protectors are more reliable than more traditional products. A surge protector only allows in enough energy to power your home, and nothing more. This means that you can avoid falling victim to power surges.
Ceiling Fan Installation
While it may seem like a simple process, it may be a good idea to have a professional install your ceiling fans. Not only that, but they can help advise you as to what size would be best for the room in which you are installing the fan. A professional will help you with placement for looks, performance, and for safety, and you can rest easy that your fans were installed correctly and safely.
If you have an older home, then there is a good chance that your wiring has degraded. Poor wiring can cause injury and performance risks. You could also have a problem if your wiring was of poor quality when it was installed.
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.
More homeowners are choosing LED lighting, and with good reason. While LED bulbs can cost more up front, they are superior to traditional incandescents in almost every way. First off, they do not have to be replaced as often. Some bulbs can last as long as 20 to 25 years. LED bulbs also are more energy efficient than traditional bulbs, and give off less heat. They can also be directed wherever you want to shine a light, as opposed to traditional bulbs which shine in every direction. Not only that, but LED bulbs do not burn out suddenly. They slowly change color and dim so that you know when it is time to replace them.
Smoke and CO detectors are the first line of defense for your family against fire and carbon monoxide. Smoke detectors should be placed in every bedroom and on every floor. You should be testing your detectors once a year, and replacing their batteries at the same time. CO detectors should be plugged in near every sleeping area. Do not place them too close to the oven, however, since it can cause false alarms. Replace your CO detectors every 5-7 years.
