Licensed Electricians in the West Sacramento, CA Area
Bonney has a team of licensed and experienced electricians who are waiting to serve you. There are 4 different types of electrician license. The first one is the apprentice. An apprentice can work on any job, but is still learning and must be under supervision at all times. The apprentice can move on to being a wireman once they pass the exam. A wireman can work unsupervised on residential projects but must be supervised on commercial projects. After they the can graduate to being a journeyman. These electricians can handle almost any job, and they are supervised only by a master electrician. The master can work on any job in any place, and will also provide excellent workmanship.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupters) outlets are specially designed to protect you and your home from the effects when electricity runs into water. They are especially valuable in kitchens and bathrooms where this interaction is most likely to occur. They will cut off power to the electronic if they sense that the current is not going where it is supposed to. Make sure to test these outlets every month by pressing the “test” button on the face. If the outlet does not shut off, then it should be replaced immediately. If it does, then press the reset button to get back to being ready for the next time. Bonney can install and replace your GFCI outlets.

Home LED Lighting
Now is the time to make the switch to LED lighting. There is simply no reason not to. LED lights will give you much more bang for your energy buck. You will save on your power bills, and also on your replacement costs since LED bulbs can last around 20 years. They give off less heat, so they are less of a fire hazard, as well. LED lights provide a pleasing glow that can be directed in any direction as well. When they start to burn out, they will slightly change shades, so that you will have advance warning of needing a replacement. No more being suddenly left in the dark if a bulb burns out.
Power surges can seriously damage your electronics and appliances by overloading them with power. This is why you may have been told in the past to unplug your computer during a storm. A home surge suppressor will prevent too much electricity from getting into your system and protect your home and electronics for getting overloaded. Call Bonney today to install your surge suppressor.
Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
It’s been well-known for many years that smoke detectors save lives. They alert you when there are dangerous levels of smoke or heat so that you can get to safety quickly. Carbon monoxide detectors do the same thing. CO is colorless and odorless, so the only way yo know that it is present is with a sensor. It will alert you if there are dangerous levels in the area, and allow you to escape harm. CO can cause serious problems, and even death if there is too much exposure. Change out the batteries in your smoke detectors every year, and replace your CO detectors every 10 years.
Electric Panel Services
Electricity gets regulated and distributed throughout a building by the electrical panel. If the panel is damaged, running inefficiently, or simply does not have the capacity to keep up with power demands, then it might be time for a new one. Call Bonney today to install an electric panel that will properly power your home. If you notice any tell-tale signs, like flickering lights and a strange odor, then call us to inspect your panel and get the power running efficiently again.
Many people like to install ceiling fans, even if they already have an HVAC system. Fans can provide a nice relaxing breeze and circulate the air throughout a room or a building.

There are many standards that need to be met, such as allowing for the proper amount of clearance from the ceiling to the blades. A Bonney expert can handle all this while getting your fan installed quickly.
