Licensed Electricians in the Folsom, CA Area
Working as an electrician for Bonney requires being licensed. The first level of electrician license is an apprentice. These professionals are still learning, so they are supervised on every job they do to provide guidance. After two years, an apprentice is eligible to graduate to being a wireman. A wireman can work solo on residential projects but must be monitored for commercial projects. Then comes journeyman, where the electrician can work on almost any project. Finally, there’s the master electrician level, which is for those who have mastered the craft.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
Safety is the most important thing when it comes to electrical services. That’s where ground fault circuit interrupters come in. They are special outlets that prevent shocks and fires caused by water and electricity coming into contact. They cut off power when the sense the current going through water. They are most used in kitchens and bathrooms since those are the rooms that tend to be the wettest. Test out your GFCI outlets every month, since you don’t want them to fail when you need them most. If they do not work when tested, then call Bonney right away to replace them.
Landscape and Outdoor Lighting Installation
One way to add curb appeal and value to your home is with outdoor or landscape lighting. It can help make your home stand out in a crowd, and provide some handy visibility for parties, socializing, or maybe just lounging in the backyard. The specialists at Bonney can consult with you to design the perfect outdoor lighting system for your needs. All you have to do is keep the fixtures clear of branches, leaves, and debris, and change out your bulbs quickly.

- Don’t cover up extension cords with carpet.
- Never use extension cords as a permanent solution

- Schedule annual electrical inspections
- Unplug appliances that emit sparks
Please follow the safety tips above that help keep everyone safe.
Home LED Lighting
It is time for you to consider switching to LED lighting. There’s no reason not to. LED lighting will save you money on your electricity bills since they are so energy efficient. They also give off less heat and need to be replaced only every 20 years or so. LED bulbs are superior to incandescents in every conceivable way, and you will make back your investment very quickly in the energy savings. Call an expert at Bonney to discuss how you can make the switch quickly and easily.
You’ve probably heard people suggest you turn off your computer during a thunderstorm. This is because of the risk of a power surge from a lightning strike. A power surge of excess electricity in your system can overload electronics and fry their electric parts. To avoid this, a Bonney technician can install a home surge protector. It will regulate how much electricity comes into your system so that nothing can get overloaded.
Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Do not take the safety of your family for granted. It’s true that house fires are getting rarer, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be protecting yourself. Smoke detectors are the first line of defense. Make sure to install at least one on every floor. Change their batteries every 6 months as well to make sure that they will not fail when you most need them. Carbon monoxide detectors are equally as important. CO has no color or odor, so you need a sensor to know it is there. Too much exposure can cause serious illness and even death. Have one installed near any bedrooms, and replace them every 7 years.
Electric Panel Services
Your electric panel is the nerve center of your home. All electricity that comes into your home passes through the panel, so if it starts to fail you could have major problems with your system. Many older panels are simply not built to handle the demands of today’s digital households. If you have an issue with flickering lights, or if your breakers seem to trip too often, then a specialist from Bonney can provide the upgrades needed to keep your system running smoothly.
When picking out a new ceiling fan, make sure to consider the size of the room in which you will be installing it. You want to make sure that it’s not too small that it does not cover the room, and not too big that it overwhelms the room, or could potentially hit the walls. The blades should be 8 inches from the ceiling and 9 feet from the ground. A Bonney expert can help you choose the appropriate sized fan for your room, and install it safely and securely, too.
