The perfect licensed Electrician for you in Tomball

Every electrician working in Texas must hold a license. There are four different electrical licenses a licensed electrician may have.

  • Apprentice: These electricians are taking the first steps in their career. Once they have 2 years of supervised experienced and pass the state electrical exam, they can become a wireman electrician.
  • Wireman: Wiremen electricians may service residential homes without supervision but cannot service commercial buildings.
  • Journeyman: Journeymen electricians work directly under a master electrician. Journeymen can work in residential homes and for commercial businesses..
  • Master: Master electricians have the highest level of licensing and must have at least 7 years of experience. Master electricians can work on most electrical jobs.

GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)

GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets are able to prevent electrical shocks in wet places and prevent electrical house fires. GFCIs instantly power off electrical power circuits if it senses electricity traveling through the wrong route, such as through a person or through water. GFCI outlets should be tested monthly. They can be tested by pressing the “test” button next to the “reset” button. If the power does not turn off, then your GFCI isn’t working properly. GFCIs must be replaced immediately if they aren’t working. GFCIs keep everyone in your home safe it’s important to know they are working properly.

Outdoor/Landscape Lighting Installation

Outdoor landscape lighting helps many homes stand out in the neighborhood by looking great. But landscape lighting not only helps your home look better but makes it safer as well. Well-lit homes can intimidate potential criminals and stop them from targeting your home. Outdoor lighting must be maintained clean and safe. Everything must be kept clean and free of leaves in order to prevent overheating. Replace any burned out bulbs as soon as you can. Call Abacus to schedule a licensed electrician for any help with landscape lighting and outdoor lighting installation.

Electrical Safety Guidelines

We need electricity in our homes or else things won’t run smoothly. But electricity can become very dangerous if you don’t follow some safety guidelines. Many electrical disasters can be prevented by following these safety tips:

  • Don’t cover extension cords with carpet.
  • Only use extension cords when needed, not permanently
  • Replace damaged cords immediately
  • Water should never be used to put out electrical fires, only use fire extinguishers
  • Use tamper-proof receptacles to protect people from shocks
  • Schedule electrical inspections every year
  • Unplug appliances that are emitting sparks

Please follow the safety guidelines above to help keep everyone safe.

LED Lighting for Your Home

Home LED lighting has become extremely popular for homeowners. LED lights make your home look better, are more cost efficient and last much longer than traditional bulbs. Homeowners also like LED lights because they do not burn out. LED lights slowly lose their ability to produce light and begin to change colors. Fortunately, this won’t start happening until the bulbs have been used for about 20 years. These lights are a “directional” light source and point light in just one direction, instead of multiple directions like more traditional bulbs. You’ll be happy you got LED bulbs when you see them saving you money and keeping your home looking great.

Surge Suppressors (aka Surge Protectors) for Your Home

Power surges are known for causing massive amounts of damage to homes and electronics. Having a home surge suppressor helps prevent that damage. Home surge protectors only allow the electricity your home needs to run, in order to prevent over-voltages. Home surge protectors help protect your home from much more electrical damage than ordinary surge protectors.

Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

You need smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in your home to keep everyone safe. Abacus recommends placing at least one smoke detector in every bedroom and one at the top of every staircase. We recommend placing CO detectors next to sleeping areas but about 10 feet away from stoves to avoid having a false alarm. Test all your smoke alarms monthly and replace the batteries annually to make sure they are working properly. You should upgrade CO detectors every 5 to 7 years and upgrade your smoke detectors every 10 years.

Electric Panel Services

Your home needs an efficient electrical panel (aka the breaker box) so it can run smoothly. An electrical panel’s main job is to distribute electricity throughout your home.

If your home has an older electrical panel, then it may be unable to keep up with newer technology and their demands for power. Inadequate breaker boxes can cause your circuit to overload. Overloaded circuits can be very dangerous for everyone in or near your home.

Breaker boxes can give you hints that you’ll need a new one soon. These hints can be strong odor, tripping, rust, and dimming lights. If you’ve noticed any of this or anything out of the ordinary, contact a licensed electrical company immediately.

Ceiling Fan Installation by Licensed Electricians

Before you buy or install a ceiling fan, make sure you get the right one for your home. If you are going to install a ceiling fan in a small room (8’ x 10’) then a 30-inch ceiling fan is best for you. 42-inch ceiling fans are recommended for medium sized rooms (12’ x 12’) and 52-inch ceiling fans are recommended for larger rooms (18’ x 20’). 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. Contact Abacus today to schedule a licensed electrician for your ceiling fan installation.

Electrical Rewiring Services

Many older homes have electrical wiring that is more than ten years old. A lot of newer homes were made with cheaper electrical wiring to reduce costs. That cheaper electrical wiring is most likely incapable of handling the electrical demands of today’s technology. Rewiring helps prevent many electrical disasters and can help keep everyone safe.

These are some signs that let you know you may need some rewiring:

  • Circuit breakers that trip regularly
  • Aluminum wiring, which is a major fire risk
  • Small vibrations, shocks or buzzes when turning on appliances
  • Dimming or flickering lights when using appliances such as a vacuum
  • Loose electrical outlets
  • Older Homes
  • Electrical outlets that have a burning smell

If you see any of the signs above, please call Abacus, a reputable licensed electrical company.
