What does GFCI stand for? GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. These are outlets which can stop or prevent shocks in wet areas such as bathrooms or kitchens. GFCI’s will turn off an electrical power circuit immediately if it identifies a wrong-flowing current, such as a human or water. These should be checked monthly by pushing the TEST button (usually red) next to the RESET button. If the power doesn’t turn off during a TEST, then the GFCI is not working correctly. If you live in Missouri City, TX, call Abacus Electricians to see what, if any, problems you may be having or to replace the switch.

Surge Suppressors (aka Surge Protectors)
Power surges can cause serious problems to your Missouri City home. Abacus recommends installing a surge protector at the panel / fuse box level to help prevent power surges from the grid from affecting your home’s electronics, appliances and devices. Only the appropriate amount of electricity will be allowed thru the surge protector, suppressing any extra voltage from getting thru to your home. Fully installed by a licensed electrician, these are the safest way to help offset and prevent serious electrical damages caused by power surges.
Smoke Detectors & CO (Carbon Monoxide) Detectors
No home in Missouri City should be without smoke detectors or carbon monoxide detectors. Abacus can test, check and replace batteries as part of an annual home inspection. Or if you need new ones installed, your Abacus electrician can help with that too.
Smoke detectors should be placed in bedrooms and at the top of the stairs (for two story+ homes). CO detectors should be in or near bedrooms too, but kept at least 10 feet away from stoves or ovens to prevent repeat false alarms when cooking. All detectors should be tested monthly.
Panel Replacement and Installation in Missouri City
The Breaker Box / Electrical Panel is the most important component of your home’s electrical systems. It distributes electrical currents through your home. Most homeowners never think or worry about their panel unless there’s a problem or a fuse goes out. However, due to the growth in demand for electricity by devices such as smart phones, laptops, TV’s and other devices that constantly need to be charged or plugged in…it’s critical to make sure that your breaker box has the right amp size for your needs.
You should always hire a licensed electrician to inspect, repair or replace an electric panel. Serious health hazards are present, including shocks that can lead to death. Call Abacus for an Electrical Panel inspection, especially if you have signs such as strong burning or electrical odors, tripping of fuses, visible rust, frequent light dimming or plugs and outlets that are causing shocks or smoking.
