Hiring An Electrician To Move Your Washer and Dryer

Hiring an electrician to move your washer and dryerIf you are thinking about relocating your laundry room, hiring an electrician to move your washer and dryer may be a good idea.  If you are unsure what electricity you need for your washer or dryer, an electrician can help you stay within budget and keep you safe.

Dedicated Dryer Circuits

Your washer and dryer should have a dedicated 240v circuit.  This means it will be wired to the circuit breaker and be on it’s own breaker.   Your professional electrician can make sure when you’re wiring a new laundry room that it is done according to electrical codes and building codes.

GFCI Outlets

The outlets near your washer and dryer will most likely need to be GFCI outlets to protect them from water.  Because it is not uncommon for your washer to overflow, you should most likely have GFCI outlets throughout the room just to be safe.

Dryer Vents

You cannot just move the dryer vent in some cases.  The vent needs to be the right length and put in properly to avoid lent getting stuck in the vent.  This is a possible fire hazard.  You should also use the right type vent material in the wall.  The accordion type vent or soft flex aluminum vent is for the space between your dryer and the wall only.

Hiring An Electrician To Move Your Washer and Dryer

When it comes to laundry room wiring, hiring an electrician to move your washer and dryer, makes the most sense.  You shouldn’t attempt wiring a new laundry room unless you know what you’re doing.  Improper wiring can be a safety hazard and can cause a problem should you have an accident or fire.  Your insurance may not cover a problem if the wiring is not done correctly.  If you are considering hiring an electrician to move your washer and dryer, call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric and they will be happy to help you.

  4. Disconnect the wires from the old fixture base by removing wire nuts or electrical tape
  5. Connect the wires from the new fixture. Match up the wires with their corresponding wires in the outlet box. Use a wire nut.
  6. Raise and position the new light fixture. Screw the fixture base into the mounting strip or outlet box.

Keeping Squirrels and Raccoons Out Of Your Attic

keeping squirrels and raccoons out of your atticKeeping Squirrels and Raccoons out of your attic can become a big job. These rodents love to take up residence in your attic and any other part of your home if you’ll allow it. One family we know had a pest squirrel that thought he owned the house and often came out of the attic and into the kitchen whenever he got a chance. Although many people think squirrels and raccoons are cute, when they’re causing trouble in your attic, you begin to look at them a little differently. They can chew electrical wires, causing damage and electrical repairs and they can also cause fire hazards. Keeping Squirrels and raccoons out of your attic is important because they carry disease, lice, ticks and fleas too. We hope these tips will help.

Tips For Getting Rid of Squirrels And Raccoons In The Attic

  1. If you hear the noise of squirrels or other rodents in the attic, you can take a look and see if you notice the signs of nesting or chewed electrical wires. Rodents often get into insulation and other items in the attic looking for a place to nest. You can look for holes too and other entry openings. The best way to eliminate the rodents is to block their holes. If you put a flap on the outside of the opening, you can try to make sure they get out but not back in. They will leave looking for food and not be able to reenter. Make sure you look for nests so if babies are in the attic they don’t die and cause an odor.
  2. Call a professional exterminator or trapper. If you have a serious problem with squirrels or raccoons, you can call for professional pest control. This is often the easiest way of getting rid of the pests. Once animals are relocated and the holes blocked, you usually can avoid the problem in the future.
  3. Squirrels and Raccoons are expert climbers.  You can avoid some of the ease of entering your attic by removing trees and branches that overhang your roof.  Don’t be fooled though, a busy rodent can find a way in if they are determined.

Keeping Squirrels And Raccoons Out Of Your Attic

Once you have had a problem with rodents in your attic, you can see why it is so important to keep them away. Damage to your wood and insulation, and damage to your electrical wiring can be costly. They can also damage ductwork, ceilings and more. Once you take care of the problem, you can begin doing the necessary repairs to fix whatever damage they have done.

Choosing The Proper Bathroom Exhaust Fan

choosing the proper bathroom exhaust fanChoosing the proper bathroom exhaust fan is an important consideration. Most people add a vent fan as an afterthought but we consider it one of the most important fixtures in your bathroom.

Why Do I Need A Bathroom Fan?

Most houses today are built airtight. In fact, most people work hard to make sure their home IS airtight. This means that there is no place for moisture to go. In the bathroom and shower area this can be quite a problem. Moisture in the bath area can contribute to mold, mildew, odors and microorganisms getting out of control. Proper ventilation, like the right size exhaust fan will remove the air in your bathroom and vent it to the outside. This removes odor and stale air in the restroom and prevents the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria.

Choosing the Proper Bathroom Exhaust Fan

For the Master Bath – Choose a quiet exhaust fan for the master bath so you can use it while your spouse is sleeping. This should be a powerful fan that can handle long showers, multiple showers and hot steamy baths. Ideally it should be on a timer for 15 or 20 minutes per shower.

Kids and family baths – Although it may be tempting to choose a cheap exhaust fan, in the long run, this fan is just as important as the one in master bath. Because of location, it may not need to be as quiet. If you have a large family, it may need to be more powerful. Consider installing a ventilation fan with a humidity sensor so that you don’t have to rely on your kids or family members to turn it on.

Guest Bathrooms – In your guest bathroom or ½ bath, you may want to install a noisy vent fan. This helps with hiding embarrassing bathroom noises. Consider installing a ventilation fan that has a built in light or is attached to the light switch so that it comes on automatically.

Choosing the Right Size Exhaust Fan

According to the Home Ventilation Institute, vent fans are measured by CFM (cubic feet per minute). You can visit their website for a complete chart. Basically they recommend one CFM per square Foot of bathroom area. In baths with areas less than 50 sq ft a 50 CFM is recommended. Baths with areas over 100 Sq Ft require additional CFM per type of shower, tub and number of amenities. Don’t worry about figuring this out; we can help you if you need it.

Choosing the Proper Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Rose Brothers and Sons Electric can help you when choosing the proper bathroom exhaust fan. We will be happy to help you pick a quality fan that will last for years. Don’t think of the exhaust fan as an after thought or spend time wondering if you need a bathroom fan. Every bathroom and shower area could use an exhaust fan for indoor air quality and to prevent mold, mildew and disease. If you have questions or need exhaust fans installed, call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric today.
