Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda: Wished I’d Called An Electrician

electricianHave you ever accidentally shocked yourself with static electricity? Hurts, right? Well imagine that but only way, way, way, way, way stronger. That is what you could experience if you decide to go digging around in your wires and messing with your electrical system. It can get pretty confusing in there with all those cords, wires, and switches, and the more confusing it gets the more dangerous it is for you to mess with. One wrong move and you could be zapped like a mosquito buzzing around the wrong back porch. That is why you should always consult an electrician when dealing with anything potentially “shocking.”

DIY Electricians Or The Real Deal

But what if you are not confused by all the tangled wires and circuits? No matter how confident you are, if you are not a licensed electrician you should not try and fix any electrical issues in your own home. Besides obvious personal injury concerns, there are also numerous building codes and inspections that your electrical system must pass. If you have not been properly trained, you most likely are not aware of those codes and how to adhere to them. Plus, the untrained eye most likely would miss most of the minor electrical issues that could be causing your problems, and you probably would also not be able to tell when you made a small mistake that could lead to a colossal deadly electrical fire. What looks like an easy fix can turn into a major disaster if the wrong person is trying to fix it.

But what if you get out of there with everything appearing to be all fixed up and you did not electrocute yourself? Well, you are not quite out of the woods yet. You might switch up your wires so that your light switch now turns on your garbage disposal and vice versa. Or that new ceiling fan you installed all by yourself might come crashing down during a nice family dinner. No one wants to deal with problems like that, so do not put yourself in those situations. If you notice something wrong with your electrical system, call an electrician and let a professional fix the problem. Trying to save a few bucks on a routine installation could end up costing you much more if something goes wrong.

So now that you have been duly warned of the dangers of DIY electrical work, if you have an issue call Rose Brothers & Sons, the best electricians in Northern Kentucky. And do not end up paying hospital bills twenty times worse than your electrician’s bill would have been.

Can Ceiling Fan Installation Save On Cooling Cost?

ceiling fan installationThere are many good arguments that would recommend ceiling fan installation to save on cooling costs.  The trick is not just to install a ceiling fan but to install it correctly and to use it wisely.

What To Expect From Ceiling Fans

Unlike air conditioners that actually cool the air, ceiling fans work by creating air flow.  It’s important to note that like a portable fan or table fan, unless you are in direct contact with the air flow, it won’t do you much good.  Ceiling fans have 2 settings. The counter-clockwise setting is best in the summer and the clockwise setting is best in the winter.  The direction of the air is determined by the slant of the blades.  During colder weather, the warm air can be pulled up to the ceiling and redistributed around the room to help heat colder exterior walls.  Likewise in the summer, the blades will push air down and create a draft.  Some people are comfortable with ceiling fans and use their A/C less or on a lower setting.

How To Save Cooling Costs With a Ceiling Fan

If you use your ceiling fan as intended, it could produce some savings on your electric bill.  You should attach your ceiling fan to the light switch so that it turns off with the light when you leave the room.  Ceiling fans only help you while your in the room.  They cannot cool air in other rooms.  Also if you can enjoy the breeze from your ceiling fan and adjust the temperature down on your thermostat, then you will be able to realize a greater savings.

Ceiling Fan Placement

When installing a ceiling fan, make sure you think about the affects of blowing air on your room.  Some people don’t like ceiling fans in the kitchen for this reason.  It can lower the temperature on the stove or create a hazard if you own a gas stove.  Potentially a ceiling fan above your dining room table could cool the food faster than you like.  Also when considering ceiling fan installation, make sure you add enough ceiling fans in the room to create even temperatures that will cool the entire room.  Many people who install bedroom ceiling fans get so they cannot sleep comfortably without the airflow and noise of the ceiling fan.
