Breaker Box Services
If you find that your fuses are tripping, of your lights are flickering, or if you sense a funny smell, then you might have a problem with your breaker box. The breaker box is where all of your electricity flows through on its way to power your home. It will start to malfunction over time. If you have an old house with the original 100 amp box, then it may not be enough to power your home. Those boxes were installed in times before mobile phones and tablets. You may need a 150 or 200 amp box to power your home. The experts at Baker Brothers in North Richland Hills will evaluate your panel to see if it needs repair or replacing.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters
In rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom, electricity coming into contact with water is a real concern. That is why GFCI outlets are designed to protect against the dangers. They will cut off power if they sense the current is going somewhere it shouldn’t, such as through water. Make sure to test them every month, since an unreliable GFCI outlet is no use to anyone. After it is activated, you will need to reset the outlet again. At Baker Brothers, our electricians can install GFCI outlets that will keep you and your family safe when using electricity around water.

Surge protectors, also called surge suppressors, will keep your circuits from getting overloaded during a power surge. These can occur during a lightning strike or if there is a problem with your electrical system. A power surge can cause fires and damage your electronics. A home surge protector is an even more reliable option that a traditional surge protector. Call Baker Brothers today to discuss having one installed in your home to protect against power surges.
Ceiling Fan Installation
Ceiling fans are an idea way to add comfort and visual appeal to a room all at the same time. Just make sure to get the right size, however. If your fan is too big, it might overwhelm the room. Too small and it may not cover everything. A North Richland Hills expert from Baker Brothers will be able to give you guidance on choosing the right fan, and deciding where to place it. It should never be closer than 18 inches to the nearest wall, and there should be 8 inches above and 8 feet below the blades for clearance.
There are some homes with wiring that is 50 years old or more. If that is your situation, then you are due for rewiring and upgrading your home.

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.

They should also be tested every month, and the entire unit should be replaced every 7 years.
