Safety and Security Lighting
Prevent theft or intrusions into your home or storage building and install outdoor security light fixtures. Statistics prove that a well lighted home as well as sufficient outdoor lighting is one of the best ways to discourage criminals who like to operate under cover of darkness. Another benefit that automatic security lighting systems also deter vandals.
Low Voltage Landscape Lighting
One major element of quality landscape is the outdoor lighting. Not only is landscape lighting a way to enhance the beauty of your home, it provides safety and security as well. To be effective, landscape lighting must be both integrated with the design of the home and planned well for it to work properly. The first step in creating quality lighting is to examine your landscape and decide where you need illumination. Patio covers, pathways, walls, steps, trees, plants, waterfalls, sculptures, and barbeques are the more common places landscape lighting is used. Will you need high-voltage or low-voltage or a combination of both?

Most common units are powered by natural gas from your home. They are compact, quite and very efficient
Listen to your breaker.
A breaker that trips immediately after it's reset is telling you that there's an electrical problem. Sure, sometimes the breaker itself is to blame, and in some cases there may just be too large an electrical load operating on that circuit. But it's more likely that the breaker is tripping because there's a severe electrical problem. Keep pressing that breaker, and you're likely to cause a fire.
Never throw water on an electrical fire.
This will be obvious to many people, but in the heat (ahem) of the moment, grabbing a bucket of water can seem tempting, if unreasonable. Water conducts electricity (this is why you don't want to be in a lake during a lightning storm), so throwing water on the fire could cause it to get larger. Instead, use your chemical fire extinguisher.
Outlets with a faceplate that's warm to the touch
Cause: An overly large electrical load operating on that outlet, undersized wiring or a loose electrical splice. (Note: it's not unusual for dimmer switches, especially large ones, to be warm. Unless the switch face is actually too hot to touch, a warm dimmer is not a hazard in most cases)
Solution: Cut power and investigate. Look for a loose splice, melted connections, burned insulation. Repair as necessary. Also, evaluate wattage of device; it may be too large relative to supply wiring. Move device to another circuit, preferably one served by a 20-amp circuit breaker and 12-gauge wire. If condition persists, contact us asap!.
Wobbly switches or outlet receptacles
Cause: Device is improperly mounted to the electrical box or the box itself has come loose from the stud.
Solution: Cut power. Remove faceplate and tighten mounting screws. Occasionally, overly long screws will not fully seat. Shorten screws with an electrician's multitool (a pair of pliers that strip wire, bend wire and cut screws ). Reinstall device. Otherwise, tighten connection of box to framing.
GFCI outlets that trip repeatedly
Cause: A ground fault or a worn-out GFCI outlet receptacle.
Solution: Move appliance or tool to another GFCI and test. If GFCI trips, appliance or tool is suspect. If GFCI does not trip, electrical problems are likely. Cut power and investigate for damaged wire insulation, a loose splice or a small length of exposed wire making contact with a metal electrical box. If you don't find wiring or splice problems, replace the GFCI. If condition persists, contact us asap!
