This is the perfect time of the year for homeowners to consider home safety issues. The weather in the past few years has been particularly stormy, and many homeowners have found that having a whole house surge suppressor installed has been well worth the money. Other homeowners are ensuring their family’s safety by having licensed and insured technicians do a breaker box upgrade to prevent the possibility of overloading the current box with the addition of new electrical appliances.
Local residents are also finding that this is a great time to have new smoke detectors installed in strategic places in their homes. Smoke alarms save lives, and smoke alarm battery replacement is vital. Our master electrician can ensure that your home has an adequate warning system to prevent your family from being trapped in a fire.
Another service that might interest Frisco residents is an electrical troubleshooting visit. An electrical technician can check the wiring, circuits, plugs and outlets of your home for potential problems, especially if you have noticed a breaker tripping frequently. Sometimes small animals or older wiring can cause dangerous situations to arise, and troubleshooting can identify the problem before any major damage is done.

Sometimes the unexpected happens, and residents of Addison and Richardson might suffer the consequences. This usually happens during the spring storm season so it is important to prepare in advance. Light It Up Electric suggests that residents consider installing a whole house surge suppressor before the possibility of trouble begins. A surge protector can pay for itself in the long run because one lightning strike or large power surge can take out thousands of dollars of electrical wiring, including everything from the tanning bed outlet to any dedicated circuits that are being used.
Of course, the licensed and insured electrical repair men at Light It Up Electric are happy to deal with the repairs caused by this type of unfortunate event, but it might be best to prepare in advance. Storms can cause breaker tripping, compromise plugs and outlets, and shut down security lighting. Our servicemen at Light It Up Electric are well-trained in trouble shooting these problems. They can even do a breaker box upgrade when it is necessary to keep an Addison or Richardson customer’s home safe.

There are many ways that you can update your electrical system to make your home safer for your family. First, take an inventory of all larger appliances, such as washers and dryers, exercise equipment like treadmills, and even home media centers. Any items that require a larger amount of power to run should be put on their own dedicated circuit. Most home outlets run on a daisy-chain system with one circuit for a room or a few rooms. Larger items could take up much of power ration for an area of the house. This would increase the likelihood of an outage but also not allow the larger item to run at its optimal level. Dedicated plugs can take care of this problem. A surge suppressor is another great way to protect your belongings. A surge suppressor is a must for a computer workstation, but also many homes are opting to install whole house surge suppressors to prevent power surges from ruining their various electrical items. A panel up grade or breaker box upgrade is another way to make your home safer, as all electrical wiring runs to the breaker box. GFI outlets can protect your children from nasty shocks, as they will cut the power in the event that a change in the power flow is detected. And don’t forget about smoke alarms! Smoke detectors should be installed on every floor of your home. Smoke alarm battery replacement is relatively easy and only needs to be done once a year. Many families choose to change batteries on an annual holiday or a family member’s birthday, so they remember to do it every year.
