Electric Repairs and Tips To Save You Money

electric repairsThere are a few electric repairs and summer time money saving tips that can help lower your electric bill.  August can be one of the hottest months of the year and the average home spends hundreds of dollars a year on energy costs, mostly because of air conditioning.  You can lower your electric bill and help save the environment by following some of these recommendations.  See which of these you can implement and start reaping the rewards of extra savings.

Control Your Thermostat

If your house is like mine, there is a constant war over the thermostat.  My daughter is always hot and likes to keep the air on really high.  My husband is more conservative and follows behind her and turns it back down.  It is suggested that your thermostat should be set to 78 degrees when your home and 80 or more when your away.   You are likely to save up to 3 percent per degree over 72 degrees. Many people are installing new digital thermostats to regulate their homes more.  There are many different ones on the market that can help control your energy use.  Your professional electrician can help with electric repairs and thermostat installations.

Use Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are a great way to keep the air moving in your home.  Many times you can set your thermostat higher and stay comfortable with the use of ceiling fans.  Make sure your fan blades are rotating counter clockwise to push air down and maximize air circulation.  If you need to install more ceiling fans, call your professional electrician and they can help.

Use Appliances Sparingly

Your microwave is the most energy efficient way to cook.  It uses less energy than your stove and it won’t heat up the kitchen.  This will help with your cooling bill.  Your dryer is also a huge consumer of electricity.  You can lower your utility bill by hanging clothes outside on a clothes line.  Peak electricity use hours are from 4pm to 6pm.  Avoid running appliances during this time especially if an electricity emergency is declared. Turn off appliances, lights, power strips and equipment when not in use. Unplug  the spare refrigerator if you have one but don’t really need it.  Freezers that are plugged in but not full will be more costly to run too.  Consider replacing older appliances with newer more energy efficient appliances.

Install a Whole House Fan

If you don’t have an attic fan, consider installing one.  A whole house fan can draw cool air into your home through the windows and suck the hot air up and out through the attic vents.  These are best used in the evening and early morning and can help reduce your air conditioning use.  Your electrician can help you determine if an attic fan would work in your home.

HVAC Maintenance

Having your HVAC system checked and maintained will cause it to work better and more efficient.  You can save energy with clean filters too.  If you have an older a/c unit, you may want to replace it with a newer more energy efficient model.   If you plant trees around your a/c unit, it will use about 5% less energy.   Leaking ductwork needs to be repaired to save around 25% of your energy bill.

Keeping Up With Electrical Repairs

Whenever you notice a problem with your electricity it is important to get it fixed right away.  Repairing things when the problem is first noticed and small, beats waiting and facing larger and more costly repairs later.  Electrical repairs and  electrical upgrades can also help with your energy and utility bills.  Older homes may need electrical repairs to ensure their electric is efficient and economical.  Your electrician can help you determine if there are other ways you can save on your electric bill.  If you have any questions or need electric repairs, call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric and they will be happy to help you.

How to Know If You Need Electrical Upgrades

Electrical UpgradesDeciding you need an electrical upgrades may not be as complicated and costly as you imagined.  Sometimes you can get by with adding a dedicated circuit to your electrical panel and at other times, you may need to replace an entire circuit panel or redo the wiring.  The important thing to remember is that having insufficient or unsafe electrical systems is not only an inconvenience but it is also unsafe for your family and valuable appliances.

Insufficient Electric

When you start having trouble keeping your circuit breakers from tripping, it is a good indication you need to call a license electrician like Rose Brothers & Sons electricity.  You will often notice circuit breakers tripping after you do some remodeling or you add some power-hungry appliances like a new A/C unit or a hot tub.  This might easily be corrected by adding a dedicated circuit for this appliance.

If your house is older, you may not have enough electricity.  Older homes were wired for 60 amps but newer appliances and electronics require 100 – 200 amps to run.  Your licensed electrician can replace your circuit breaker panel with a larger panel.  This will give your home not only the sufficiency you need but also provide more efficient, consistent power to your home.  Newer circuit breaker panels also have built in safety features for better protection to you and your family.

Insufficient Safety

Older homes that were built 40 years ago probably need an electrical upgrade.  You may have an older fuse box that needs to be replaced with a circuit breaker panel.  There are also some dangerous circuit breakers like certain Zinsco electric panels and Federal Pacific Electric Panels.  If you have these, you will want to replace them with safer circuit panels.

Older houses also may need complete electrical upgrades that include new wiring.  This can be expensive and messy because most of the wiring is inside the walls.  This is best done if you are already doing some remodeling because the wires may be exposed or the repairs to the walls could be included in your remodeling project.

Electrical Upgrades

Providing your home with electrical upgrades will not only give you more power and provide a safer environment for your family, but it will also add value to your house.  If you have questions about electrical upgrades please call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric and we will be happy to help you.  We are a Electric repair and installation company in Northern Kentucky but we also service the greater Cincinnati area.    We hope you will give us the opportunity to earn your business.  Call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric today!
