Licensed Electricians in the Antelope, CA Area
The electricians at Bonney fall into one of four categories. The apprentice is still learning the ropes of the job and has to be supervised on any project. The wiremen can work solo on residential jobs, but not on commercial ones. The journeyman can work on almost any project but is monitored by a master electrician. The master electrician can handle any electrical problem and will monitor other electricians to make sure that they are doing things safely and properly.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
To better protect you from shock and potential fire, you should have Bonney install ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets in your kitchen and bathrooms. These outlets will shut off if they sense the current going through moisture. As you probably know, water and electricity do not mix. Remember to test your GFCI outlets every month by pressing the “test” button on the face. If the power shuts off, everything is fine. If it does not, then make sure to call us to come and replace the outlet. You do not want to be left with a malfunctioning outlet if you need it.
Landscape and Outdoor Lighting Installation
Give your home some extra visual appeal by having Bonney design and install landscape and outdoor lighting. It will make your home look great, and there are so many options. The lighting can be used for being able to see during evening gatherings or to highlight a certain part of your property. It can also work as security, as a well-lit home will deter would-be thieves and vandals. Outdoor lighting does require some regular maintenance on your part, however. Make sure to keep the fixtures clear of leaves and branches, and replace burnt out bulbs promptly.
Electrical Safety in Your Antelope Home
We all want our electrical system to work perfectly at all times. However, it can absolutely be dangerous if you do not treat electricity with the respect it deserves. Here are some tips to avoid electrical disasters:
- Don’t cover up extension cords with carpet.
- Never use extension cords as a permanent solution
- Replace cords immediately if you see any damage
- Never use water to put out electrical fires, use fire extinguishers
- Install tamper-proof receptacles to protect from shocks
- Schedule annual electrical inspections
- Unplug appliances that emit sparks
Please follow the safety tips above that help keep everyone safe.
Home LED Lighting
LED lighting continues to gain popularity for residential use, and there are several good reasons for this. They use up less energy, so your energy budget will thank you. Not only that, but they can last around 20 years, so you don’t have to worry about replacing them any time soon. On top of that, they give off less heat, so they are less of a fire or injury hazard. All of these benefits, plus the gentler and more appealing glow that they provide. There is simply no good reason for you not to be considering a shift to LED lighting for your home.
During lightning strikes, extra electricity can get into your home and overload your electric panel and your electronics. Overloading electronics can cause serious damage, and a power surge can even cause sparking in your system. Bonney can install a home surge protector to limit the amount of power that gets into your system and protects you from the effects of power surges.
Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Smoke detectors have been a long-time tool in helping to prevent harm from fires. They will alert you if they sense too much smoke or heat. Carbon monoxide detectors do the same thing for a gas that is colorless and odorless. There is no way to sense CO if you do not have a sensor. Install a smoke detector on each floor of your home, and a CO detector in any sleeping areas. To ensure they are in working order, test them every month. Not only that, but change out the batteries of your smoke detectors every 6 months, and replace your CO detectors every 10 years.
Electric Panel Services
Your electric panel provides the heartbeat for your entire electrical system. It distributes power throughout the building. However, older panels may have trouble meeting the demands of your household. They were constructed with the amp requirements for the lifestyles of that era, and not for today’s digital world. If you have flickering lights or a strange smell, then there is a good chance you have an issue with your electric panel. A Bonney expert can replace your panel and make sure that it has the capacity to meet your demands.
Choosing a ceiling fan that meets your aesthetic and performance needs is the easy part. Installing it with the right clearances and electric connections the harder part. Of course, you can have a specialist from Bonney do that work for you. They will make sure that everything is installed safely, and that it meets all applicable codes. They will leave the right amount of clearance between the blades, the floor, the ceiling, and the walls, so you can rest your head knowing you are in good hands.
