GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interpreter) Outlets
In bathrooms and other areas of the house where electrical fires or electrical shock risk is high, GFCI outlets provide an important safety measure. These outlets will shut off instantly if a current is flowing incorrectly through them, such as if flowing through water. Homeowners can recognize these outlets by looking for the “test” and “reset” buttons on them. If you test your GFCI outlets and they don’t work, they need to be immediately replaced to protect your family’s safety.
Home Electrical Safety Tips
At BVS, we want our customers to be safe whenever they are working with electricity. Because electricity is always a risk, you need to know how to work safely with it. Follow these safety tips to avoid the risk of fire or electrical shock:
- If you see sparks, unplug the device.
- Remember that extension cords are only temporary solutions
- Never place rugs or carpeting over extension cords
- Replace or change damaged cords or outlets immediately
- If your breaker keeps tripping, call an electrician
- Have your home inspected annually by a licensed electrician
- Put out electrical fires with a fire extinguisher
LED is quickly becoming the lighting choice for homeowners and businesses in Katy, TX. It’s an energy efficient option that provides that lasts up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. These bulbs do not burn out and can burn bright for over 20 years before the color starts to shift. LED bulbs are directional, pointing light in just one direction, and provide a brighter light for less energy use. By upgrading to LED, you can enjoy a brighter home with far less energy expenditure.
All it takes is one lightning storm to wipe out your costly electronics through an electrical surge. Electrical surges can occur in a moment, even without lightning present, and cause significant damage to your home’s electronics. Home surge protectors help prevent these surges and protect your home and electronics from significant damage. Installing one on your home ensures everything is fully protected, and offers more safety than just the power strip surge protectors.
Electrical Panel Replacement
Older homes in Katy often have outdated electric panels that can’t keep up with modern demands and technology. If you are noticing that your breakers are tripping regularly, this is a good indication that your electrical panel is no longer equipped to meet the needs of your home. In these instances, it may be time to upgrade, because only a new or updated electrical panel will fix the problem and ensure your family’s safety.
Electrical wiring doesn’t last forever. After several decades, the wiring may not be able to handle the modern demand your family places on it. Some signs that your home may need new wiring include:
- Tripping circuit breakers
- Vibration, shock or buzzing when using appliances
- Flickering or dimming lights
- Known aluminum wiring
- Burning smell coming from outlets
- Loose outlets
In addition, if your home is over 40 years old, even without these signs, you may want to consider having it rewired. BVS offers home rewiring services from licensed electricians to help you with this need.
