Electric Panel Services (Breaker Box)
The electrical panel is a vital component of your home. Its main job is to circulate electricity throughout your home. Breaker boxes will eventually age and start running inefficiently. Older panels struggle to manage the higher demands of power from today’s technology. Homes with 100-amp panels are usually upgraded to 150-amp or 200-amp panels that are designed to work with the power demands of newer electronics. Your panel might display signs such as strong odor, tripping, flickering lights or dimming, and corrosion or rust. If you’ve noticed these signs or anything unusual, have one of our electricians take care of the issue immediately. Call Berkeys to assist with your Electrical Panel today.
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter), are outlets that prevent electrical shocks in wet places, for example, washrooms or kitchens. Having a GFCI can also prevent electric house fires triggered by electrical outlets. GFCIs kill an electric power circuit when it detects a current flowing along an unintended path. For example, through water or a person. Once your issue has been settled, you can reset the GFCI by pressing the “reset” button.
If you have GFCI outlets in your home, make a point to test them monthly. To do that, press the “test” button alongside the “reset” button. In the event that the power does not cut off, it means that your GFCI isn’t working correctly. If that’s the case, replace them soon. You use your GFCIs to protect you and your family, ensure they are working correctly.

Power Surges harm your home and electronics, while home surge protectors remove that harm. A power surge is a spike in the electrical current in your home. It can be caused by wiring that has been done inaccurately, utility issues, and lightning. Surge protectors only allow the power your home needs and avoid over-voltages. This secures your home and all your associated hardware. Home surge protectors shield your home from considerably more harm than normal surge suppressors. By including home surge security, you can shield your home and electronics from devastating power surges.
Ceiling Fans & Ceiling Fan Installation
Before buying a new ceiling fan for your home, know which is the perfect fit. To start with, you should measure the ceiling fan. In case you’re installing a fan in a little room (8′ x 10′) at that point a 30-inch fan is ideal. 42-inch fans ought to be used in medium-sized rooms (12′ x 12′) and large rooms (18′ x 20′) ought to have a 52-inch ceiling fan. For security reasons, never install a fan over a bed. Your fan blades ought to be no less than 8 ft. from the roof, 8 to 9 ft. off the floors and no less than 18 inches from a wall. You should consult with an experienced electrician for ceiling fan installation.
Rewiring a Home
Many older homes can have electrical wiring that is decades old. Newer homes can have cheaper wiring that was used to lessen costs. This implies the wiring will be unable to deal with the electrical requirements for new technology. Many house fires are caused by electrical issues. Rewiring can help you prevent those kinds of issues.
Warnings that signal your home needs rewiring:
- Circuit breakers constantly trip
- Aluminum wiring, which can become loose and create a major fire risk
- Sensing vibrations, buzzes or shocks when switching on appliances
- Flickering or dimming lights when using appliances
- Electrical outlets are loose
- Your home is more than 4 decades old
- Outlets have a burning smell
LED Lighting Installation
LED lighting has turned out to be very attractive to homeowners. LED lights appear more engaging, work at a lower cost and have a more prominent life expectancy than different bulbs. LED bulbs have a tendency to be somewhat more expensive upfront. Nevertheless, their lifespan, quality, and energy efficiency make LED lights the best decision in the long run. One of the many advantages of LED lights is that they don’t wear out. They gradually begin to lose the ability to deliver light and begin to change hues. Although, this does not occur until around 20 years of ordinary usage. LED lights are a “directional” light source. This implies they point light one particular way, rather than all headings like radiant bulbs. This makes LED bulbs significantly more productive. In addition, LED lights use less heat than customary lights. These lights will help your home look extraordinary and keep your wallet happy!
Smoke Detectors & CO (Carbon Monoxide) Detectors
Your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors are serious assets to your family’s wellbeing. There ought to be a smoke detector in each room and one at the top of every stairwell in your home. The best place to have CO detectors are by sleeping areas, but you should keep them no less than 10 feet away from the stove to avoid any false alerts. At any point when a smoke or CO detector goes off try to quickly go outside. Call the fire department and only go back inside once they tell you that it is safe. Test your smoke alarms monthly and change the batteries every year to keep them working effectively.
