Modernizing your electrical systems…
If your home is more than two years old, chances are it could benefit from an Electrical inspection and safety updates. The National Electrical Code is updated every three years, and new technologies designed to make your home safer for you and your family are continuously added, updated and required for new home construction. For instance, the coverage areas for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) have increased several times since their introduction in 1973 as a requirement for outdoor receptacles.
There are many other advanced technologies and requirements designed to make your home safer, from Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI’s) to Carbon Monoxide Detectors (CO2), Tamper Resistant receptacles (TR) to Smoke Detector requirements. The Electricians at Ask The Advisors can implement a plan to bring your home up to date with the most current technologies to make your family safer.
Some common household problems to be aware of are….
Constantly tripping Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI). Ground fault receptacles and ground fault circuit breakers protect the individual from dangerous electrical shock. These outlets are designed to prevent electrocution through detection of small leakage currents, and shutting off the power before someone is injured. GFCI protection is required by the National Electrical Code (NEC) for all convenience outlets in your kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, and the outside of your home. Manufacturers recommend that the GFCI outlet be tested at least once a month, if the test fails, the GFCI outlet or circuit breaker should be replaced immediately. The outlet may still be providing power even if this test fails, but the protection from electrical shock will not exist.
Common causes of tripping a GFCI are items that may have become wet, such as hair dryers, portable music players and chargers, kitchen countertop appliances, and outside receptacles. The sensing circuit in a GFCI may also cause random tripping due to age or power surges.
Blowing fuses or Tripping Circuit Breakers cut the electrical current when the amperage flowing through the circuit breaker exceeds the rating of the circuit breaker, usually from an overload or direct short to ground. Ask The Advisors how we can help prevent tripped breakers and blown fuses.
Every electrical system should have some form of Power Management! Power Management components are not only essential for getting the best sound and picture from your entertainment devices, but also for protecting those same devices from AC voltage irregularities and surges. Palm Beach County is the “lightning capital” of the world. Obviously nothing can withstand a direct hit by a lightning strike; however most frequent damage occurs from a strike in the local area. Surge protectors come in all sizes, capabilities and prices. Just Ask The Advisors which one is best for your home.
