Electrical Circuit Interrupters:
Two kinds of electrical circuit interrupters are now required for all new construction and renovations. The similarly named arc fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) and ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) are outlet receptacles equipped with their own safety features.
GFCI's have sensors that monitor the current going out and coming back in to the outlet. Usually, that flow is balanced. If it becomes unbalanced because it has made contact with something or someone it should not have, the outlet immediately cuts off the electrical current, thereby protecting against electrical shock or burns. Since water is an excellent conductor of electricity, GFCIs are most valuable in places where water and electricity are in close proximity, like outdoors, bathrooms and kitchens.
Damaged or worn electrical wires can cause electricity to leak out and start a fire, which can spread quickly in the walls of your home. AFCIs can detect electricity leaking from the system and shut off the power supply before overheating can occur. As of 2002, AFCI outlets were required in bedrooms for all new construction and renovations.
If your home was built before 2002, these requirements may not apply. Although that may be the case, many of our customers still choose to replace their outdated outlets in order to protect their families against possible shocks or fires.
Ceiling Fan Installation:
There are many reasons to consider adding a ceiling fan in your home. During the hot summer months, a ceiling fan can generate a cool breeze helping you feel cooler. You can set your thermostat a few degrees warmer to conserve energy and lower your utility costs without foregoing comfort. In the wintertime, ceiling fans can also help conserve energy by pushing heated air back downwards. Ceiling fans are available in a wide variety of designs, so they can complement the decor of any room and provide overhead lighting.
The licensed electrical technicians from CroppMetcalfe can professionally install a ceiling fan in any room of your home. We can even add a ceiling fan specifically made for exterior use to your patio to provide added comfort for your outdoor living.
