Home Rewiring and Code Updates
Did you know that wiring codes in the US are updated every three years to ensure home electrical safety? If your home hasn’t been inspected in a few years, some wiring systems in your home may be at risk. Older homes are especially at risk from outdated knob and tube or aluminum wiring, exposed wiring, ungrounded outlets, and lack of compliance with current electrical code requirements. Want to know if your home has potential issues? A complimentary electrical inspection from Mr. Electric of Weatherford will let you know.
Electrical Panel Maintenance
Your home’s electrical panel is very important; it accepts the main power to the home and distributes current to the various household circuits while protecting them from power surges. Some older electrical panels often suffer from improper wiring and over- or under-sized breakers, and are not safe or reliable; other panels have been deemed defective and unsafe. So we’ll ask you: Have you ever had your electrical panel inspected?
Here in north Texas, power outages happen. If your home lacks a functioning backup generator, you and your family are unprotected from prolonged outages. Instead, ensure the safety and comfort of your family with routine maintenance. This process includes starting the generator every six months, changing oil as recommended, maintaining fresh and proper fuel levels, replacing distilled water in the battery, cleaning spark plugs, and routinely checking components for proper function. Does that sound like a lot? All you need to do is all Mr. Electric.
When was the last time you inspected your lighting? Each light fixture should be checked to ensure that it’s using a bulb with the proper wattage; this simple practice can prolong the life of both fixtures and bulbs, and it can prevent fires.
Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets can shut off a circuit in an instant if they detect current following an unintended path. This makes GFCIs an effective means of protection from electrocution – but only if they’re functioning. The test/reset button can verify that a GFCI outlet is functioning as intended. If you find that an outlet no longer works, it should be replaced immediately. Mr. Electric can handle the job quickly and easily.
As more expensive – and more sensitive – electronic devices fill our homes, surge protection becomes ever more important. Your home’s surge protection systems should be regularly inspected to confirm proper function, or identify signs of damage or overloading. If your surge protection system needs an inspection, or an upgrade, we can help.
Smoke detectors can save lives, but only when they work. Test your detectors monthly for reliability, and replace batteries at least once a year. Also check your smoke detectors’ expiration dates; expired detectors are not reliable and need to be replaced. Mr. Electric can handle that for you.
Carbon Monoxide Detection
Carbon monoxide detectors should also be tested monthly and have batteries replaced yearly. These detectors can have relatively short lifespans: two years for older models and up to six for newer ones. If you’re not sure about your carbon monoxide detector, or you already know you need to replace it, call Mr. Electric.
If you don’t use your outdoor electrical systems regularly, you may be missing obvious signs of wear. Outdoor outlets, cords, and extensions should be checked for signs of damage such as frayed wires and plug heads. Don’t know where to start? We can help.
