When The Lights Go Out – Keeping Your Business Open

when the lights go out - keeping your business openTwice this week I have been out doing my usual weekly activities when the lights go out and I am reminded how important electricity is and how important it is to have a good electric repair company.  If you own a business, you know how important keeping your business open is and that time lost without electricity can have a negative effect on your bottom line.

What To Do When The Lights Go Out

I was eating lunch the other day when the restaurant lights went out.  The manager and cook ran out back and checked the breakers as fast as they could.  When the lights go out – keeping your business open is your first concern.  This time, the reason the electricity went out wasn’t a blown fuse or a problem with the wiring but someone wrecked into something a few blocks away.  Lucky for us, we knew the manager and were offered to either pay cash or pay the next time we visited.  You see without the electricity not only could we barely see to eat but they could no longer cook and they couldn’t use their debit machine.

Emergency Electrical Repairs

The next day or so, I had picked up my grand daughter for gymnastics.  We arrived at the gym to the eerie feeling of only a few cars in the parking lot.  Moments later our instructor came out to say she had no power.  She had turned on the air earlier in the day and when she came in and turned the lights on everything appeared to be normal.  It wasn’t until she turned the thermostat down that something major went wrong.  It wasn’t a fuse and she called the electric company only to be told she needed emergency repairs from a licensed electrician.  I know the thought of needed repairs had her worried.  Not only was she losing a days worth of business but she was going to have to make up the time or reimburse students.

When The Lights Go Out – Keeping Your Business Open

When you need emergency electrical repairs, you can depend on the services of Rose Brothers and Sons Electric.  We have been serving businesses in the area by providing electrical installations, electrical upgrades and emergency electrical repairs whenever and where ever we are needed.  Don’t let power outages leave you scrambling.  When the light go out – keeping your business open is top priority.

Outdoor Electrical Safety Tips

outdoor electrical safety tipsThis is the time of year when outdoor electrical safety tips are important to consider. With Halloween just around the corner, millions of Americans will be hosting outdoor activities or participating in trick or treat. While decorating your house and using fancy lights, blow up figures and other electrical decorations is fun, you also need to ensure the safety of your friends and family. Rose Brothers and Sons can provide outdoor outlets and other electrical services. Here are a few outdoor electrical safety tips to keep you and your family safe:

Outdoor Outlets

It is important to keep outdoor outlets away from water. Outdoor outlets installed correctly will have protection from the weather. This includes outlet covers and a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). This will offer additional protection from electrical shock.

GFCIs are required for outlets within 20 feet of a water source. Outlets near the pool, hot tub or other water using appliances should have a GFCI.  This is one of the most important outdoor electrical safety tips you can’t ignore.

Outdoor Lighting and Decorations

Inspect your outdoor lighting and replace burned out or broken bulbs. Inspect power cords for fraying, loose plugs or other damage. Make sure if you are having guests walk through your yard that you allow enough lighting to prevent falls in the dark. If you are using an extension cord make sure it is in good working order. Extension cords should only be used for temporary needs. When using an extension cord make sure it is approved for outdoor use.   Keep cords and other items out of the way to avoid trips and falls. Never remove the third prong from a plug. Only use lighting and decorations that are manufactured for outside use.

Power Line Safety

When using a ladder to hang stringing lights or other decorations be careful and stay away from overhead power lines.   Always carry your ladder sideways instead of vertically to avoid contact with a power line.

Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs)

Arcing of Home wiring is responsible for multiple home fires each year. Your home’s circuit breakers can’t respond quickly enough to arcing conditions to prevent household fire. An arc-fault circuit interrupter acts quickly and prevents fires.  According to the National Fire Protection Association, AFCIs will reduce electrical fires started by arcing and sparking.

Electrical Safety and Fire Prevention

electrical safety and fire preventionElectrical safety and fire prevention is an important topic to think about as the winter approaches. Families will spend more time in the home increasing the use of lights, heaters and appliances. It is estimated that most home fires occur in the wintertime. Here are a few facts about electrical safety and fire prevention:

The Statistics For Electrical Fires

The United States Fire Administration collects fire statistics each year.  Electrical fires claim over 450 lives in America each year and account for over 2300 injuries. Home electrical problems cause 67,800 fires and over $860 million in property losses. Although electrical appliances do cause some fires, home electrical wiring causes twice as many. Most of these can be attributed to poor maintenance, electrical wiring that is installed incorrectly and overloaded circuits or extension cords.

Causes of Residential Electrical Fires

Electrical Wiring causes  1/3 of fires because of faulty electrical outlets and old electrical wiring. Other fires are caused by incorrect use of extension cords. Most of these fires can be avoided with electrical safety and fire prevention. Overloading circuits, not maintaining appliances properly and not getting necessary electrical repairs cause a majority of home fires.

Electrical Safety and Fire Prevention

  • Routinely check you electrical appliances and wiring. If you see or smell smoke don’t use the outlet or appliance.
  • Frayed wires can cause fires. Replace any worn or damaged appliance cords immediately.
  • Use extension cords properly and don’t overload them. Don’t run extension cords under rugs.
  • Keep electrical appliances away form water sources at all times. This includes wet floors.
  • Don’t allow children to play around electrical appliances. Use child-proof plug covers.

Home Electricity and Preventing Power Outages

electrical contractorHome electricity is a necessity Americans have come to depend on. We need electric for lights, cooking, cleaning and in some cases life-support. It wasn’t too long ago in our history that people lived without electricity. Today, when the power goes out, we are left in limbo and inconvenienced until the lights come back on. Some areas have experienced many problems associated with power outages that have left families devastated and businesses without revenue. Fortunately most hospitals and public areas have backup power to depend on. Here are a few of the causes of power outages and what you can do to prepare for them.

Weather Causing Power Outages

Most of the power outages in the Northern Kentucky area are caused by weather. Snow, rain, ice and wind can all take a toll on electrical systems. Although it is almost impossible to plan for a flood or tornado, you can take precaution to protect your electrical system from damage from water, moisture and dust. Dust and water can damage your home electricity causing serious costly repairs. Sealed circuit boxes help protect your electrical system from water damage. Where your electric boxes are, also helps. More severe weather concerns have sometimes left entire regions without power. You may not be able to prevent such catastrophes, but you can prepare for them. Having candles, canned food, extra water or a back-up electric generator can help.

Other Causes of Power Outages

Other power outages result when power lines and wires are damaged. Large animals and birds can sometimes cause power outages. Other outages occur when automobiles wreck into power lines or the power company is working on power lines sometimes power outages are the result of human error. Other power outages are the direct result of short circuits. This is when the electrical current takes a wrong path causing excess in electrical current that can lead to circuit damage, fire or explosion. Short circuits are one of the primary causes of fires in the area. Short circuits occur for many reasons, damaged wires, water or other conducting material that comes in contact with the current. Motors that are jammed can also cause a short circuit.

Preventing Power Outages with Good Electrical Installations

One way to prevent power outages and short circuits is to make sure you have good quality materials in place in your electrical system. Make sure you hire a certified electrician who will install your electrical system the right way without cutting corners. Wires should always be good quality and the right gauge for your application. Pumps, pistons, rotors and other moving parts should be inspected and maintained to prevent short circuits caused by jammed equipment. Circuits should not be overloaded. High quality circuit breakers and fuses should be used to protect against circuit overload. All circuit breakers and electrical wiring should be kept away from water and moisture. Besides power outages, your electrical system should also be able to withstand the problems of power surges and low voltage. If you have questions about your home electricity, call your trusted electrical contractor, Rose Brothers and Sons Electric. They will be happy to help you.
