The One Question New Homeowners Often Forget To Ask

the one question new homeowners often forget to askThe one question new homeowners often forget to ask the seller is what the utility bills are. This can become a real issue if you are planning your budget and don’t factor in a higher utility bill. Here are a few things you can ask about the home that will help you determine what your utility bill will be and if there is anything you can do to upgrade the wiring or change to make your home more energy efficient.

So, How Much Does The Utility Bill Run Each Month?

Whether you are using natural gas or electric, you can tell how energy efficient the home is by the utility bills. A modern bathroom with heated floors may seem great until you consider the amount of electricity running those heaters costs. There are many items that contribute to the utility bill. This includes things like how many people live in the house and what the appliances are. You have to consider all the aspects of the current user when you start comparing utility costs with what you’re expecting or what you’re used to. This is the one question new homeowners often forget to ask.

Consider Home Energy Efficiency

When you begin looking at ways you can save money on your utility bills, look at all the appliances and see how old they are. The water heater can use a lot of energy and so can the washer and dryer. Consider alternatives to what the existing appliances are. Look around your doors and window for leaks and consider having the air ducts and HVAC system inspected. You may also be able to save money changing the lighting or depending more on natural lighting. Windows can also be a huge factor in how energy efficient your home is. Consider how old the windows are and what the cost of replacing them would be. You might be able to install quality window treatments at the windows to help with insulation and lighting. Finally consider how old the wiring is and ask your electrician if an electrical upgrade would help.

The One Question New Homeowners Often Forget To Ask

There are a lot of things to consider when you’re buying a new home. Make sure you ask all the questions you can think of and especially the one question new homeowners often forget to ask. You can save yourself a lot of headaches and extra expenses by asking questions first and planning ahead. If you have questions about your electric or need electrical repairs, call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric. We will be happy to help you.

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.

Properly Labeling Your Circuit Breaker Box

labeling your circuit breaker boxLabeling your circuit breaker box properly may not seem like a big deal. The problem is that in an emergency it can be very important. Most homes in Northern Kentucky don’t have properly labeled circuit breakers. Unless it is a new installation or a new home, over time people have worked on their breaker box and changed or removed labels.

Why Labeling Your Circuit Breaker Box Is Important

Besides being a safety issue, a properly labeled circuit breaker panel is part of the National Electrical Code. This is because in an electrical emergency you want to be able to shut power off to the item or appliance without having to shut power off to the entire system. If you wanted to shut off the circuit breaker to your dryer, would it take a few seconds or a half hour? If you have a problem with one of your appliances or electrical devices, it is important to keep you and your family safe that the circuit breaker can be found quickly.

How To Label Your Circuit Breaker Box

A well-labeled circuit breaker box has stickers with one item on it. These stickers can be replaced without scratching off an item or trying to write over it. It is uniform and easy to read. If you need help labeling your circuit breaker box, Rose Brothers and Sons Electric can help you run through your circuit breakers and label your box properly. If you get into a situation where you have to turn off all electricity, you will end up being without power until an electrician arrives to figure it out. This could end up costing extra for time sorting through your circuit breakers during off hours

commercial property lightingCommercial Property lighting needs are important. There are so many things to do when you own a business.

Lights Are Very Important!

It’s not just keeping your storefront lights on that is important. Lighted signs, parking lot lights and yes the storefront will keep customers coming. Keeping your lights working properly doesn’t just allow your customers to see your business at night. It also allows them to see clearly during the day. It also speaks volumes about your business. A dingy or dark looking building doesn’t look to attractive to new customers.

Lights Keep Customers Safe

Many people will avoid a parking lot that isn’t lit up at night. Bright lights will deter criminals and keep your customers and their belongings safe. Proper lighting also ensures your clients can see where they’re going and hopefully this will prevent accidents. Keeping a few store lights on will also deter crooks from breaking in after hours.

Commercial property lighting needs Professional Attention

Is Doing Your Own Electrical Work Worth It?

 

is doing your own electrical work worth it?Maintaining your home requires a little bit of work and money. Often you can take care of some of the repairs and upkeep yourself. At some point, you may need electrical repairs done or you may need some electrical upgrades. You may be a do-it-yourselfer who likes to save money fixing and repairing things yourself, but what you have to consider: is doing your own electrical work worth it?

The Cost of Electrical Repairs

Sure if you do it yourself, you only have the cost of the parts, not any labor. Sometimes however you have to buy parts in bulk or buy more than you need and you end up paying for parts you don’t use. If you hire an electrician in Northern Kentucky you only pay for the parts they use. You will pay for the time of a Master Electrician but what your getting is all the years of experience and knowledge they have. They are also licensed and insured which is an added protection to you as a homeowner.

The Time Involved

If you are working on your electrical system, and you’re not an expert, it will take you a lot longer then someone who does it everyday. You have to learn as you go and try different things. You may not really know what the problem is right off and replace parts that don’t really need replaced. Or you may fix the problem not realizing the problem was a symptom of another problem. When it comes to your electrical system, do you really want to take chances?

Is Doing Your Own Electrical Work Worth It?

If you decide to do your own electrical work then you need to be aware of when it is necessary to get a permit. You also need to be aware of codes and safety concerns. You don’t want to end up fixing a $30. Problem only to realize it will cost you hundreds of dollars because you made a mistake or started a fire.   You also don’t want to rig your electrical system and find out later it won’t pass an inspection. This can require more money and time when you may not have either.

The Best Solution

When you need electrical repairs or electrical upgrades, it makes sense to call a licensed electrician in Northern Kentucky who can get the job done quickly and done right. Some things are better left to the professionals and electrical repairs and upgrades fall into that category.   For you and your family’s safety and a job well done call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric today.
