Licensed Electricians in Pearland, TX
Electricians working in the state of Texas must have a license. There are 4 different levels of licensing an electrician can have.
- Apprentice: These are electricians that are starting their electrical career. Once they have completed about two years of supervised training and have passed the Texas electrical exam, they can become a wireman electrician.
- Wireman: Wiremen electricians are allowed to work unsupervised in residential homes but are not allowed to work on any commercial jobs.
- Journeyman: Journeymen electricians work directly under a master electrician. Journeymen are allowed to work on residential jobs and commercial jobs.
- Master: This is the highest level of licensing and requires at least seven years of experience. These electricians can work on and fix almost all electrical jobs.
GFCI Outlet Installation
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets are used to prevent electrical shocks around water and to prevent electrical fires. These outlets will turn off an electric power circuit if it is moving through the wrong route, such as a person or water. Ensure your GFCIs are working properly by testing them monthly. You can test them by pressing the “test” button next to the “reset” button. If the power does not turn off, then that outlet is not working properly. Replace the outlet as soon as possible if they are not working properly. These outlets are made to keep you and your family safe, so ensure they are working properly.
Landscape and Outdoor Lighting Installation
Outdoor landscape has helped many homes look better. But landscape lighting isn’t just for making your home look great, it also helps make it safer. Well-lit homes tend to discourage potential criminals from targeting your home. Outdoor lighting needs to be maintained. You can do this by keeping fixtures clean and clear of any leaves to prevent them from overheating. Always replace any burned out bulbs. Call Abacus to schedule a licensed electrician for assistance with landscape lighting and outdoor lighting installation.
Home Electrical Safety Tips
We need electricity in our homes for everything to work properly. But if you don’t follow some safety guidelines electricity can be dangerous for everyone around it. A lot of electrical fires and electrocutions can be avoided if you follow these safety tips:
Following those safety tips will help keep everyone safe.
LED Lighting Installation
LED lighting has become very popular across the country. Their popularity comes from their energy efficiency, great appearance and long lifespan. Another advantage of LED lights is that they do not burn out. They slowly lose the capability of producing light and start to change colors. Luckily, this doesn’t occur until after using them for about 20 years. LED lights direct light in just one direction, instead of directing light in many directions like traditional lights. Directional light sources are very energy efficient. LED bulbs also emit a lot less heat than other bulbs. LED bulbs keep homes looking great and be more energy efficient!
Surge Suppressors (aka Surge Protectors)
Power surges cause massive amounts of damage to homes and electronics every year across the country. Home surge suppressors are made to prevent that damage. These surge suppressors prevent over-voltages by only allowing the electricity your home needs to operate. Common surge protectors are not able to prevent as much damage as home surge protectors.
Smoke & CO Detectors
Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors play an important role in keeping your home safe. Have one smoke detector in each bedroom and one at the top of each staircase. CO detectors should be close to sleeping areas but kept at least 10 feet away from stoves to avoid false alarms. Your smoke alarms need to be tested monthly and batteries need to be changed annually to maintain them working properly. You should replace your CO detectors every 5 to 7 years and replace your smoke detectors every 10 years.
Electric Panel Repairs and Replacements
Your home’s electrical panel (aka the breaker box) has one of the most important jobs in your home. Its main responsibility is to distribute electricity throughout your house.
A lot of older panels can’t handle the demands for power by today’s technology. If your breaker box is being overworked it can cause an overloaded circuit. This can be dangerous for everyone in and around your home.
If you’ve noticed strong odor, tripping, rust, or dimming lights from your breaker box, then you might need to upgrade. Contact Abacus to find out if a new electric panel is right for you.
Ceiling Fan Installation and Services
Always make sure you are getting the right ceiling fan for your home before purchasing or installing one. Small rooms (8’ x 10’) should have about a 30-inch ceiling fan. Medium sized rooms (12’ x 12’) should have about a 42-inch ceiling fans. Larger rooms (18’ x 20’) should have about a 52-inch ceiling fan. Keep the blades of your ceiling fan at least 8 inches away from the ceiling, 8 to 9 feet off the floors and 18 inches away from the walls. Abacus has licensed electricians that are able to install your ceiling fan.
Electrical Rewiring Services in Pearland, TX
Many older homes have electrical wiring that is more than 10 years old. Even many newer homes were constructed with cheaper electrical wiring to reduce costs. Older and cheaper electrical wiring is often times incapable of handling the electrical demands of newer technology. Rewiring will make sure that your home’s electrical system is efficient and safe.
