Repairing or rebuilding your circuit breakers can prevent unnecessary downtime and in many cases is more economical than replacing your existing equipment. Our experienced electrician can perform top quality repairs, modifications, rebuilding and maintenance on most circuit breakers and larger frame molded case breakers of all brands and vintages. Many fused systems don't have adequate, if any, room for the additional circuits that today's electrical loads demand, such as: central air conditioning, hot tubs, electric stoves, water heaters, dryers, electric heat, room additions, etc. By replacing a fuse box or circuit breaker you are making your home safe for the following reasons:
Have you ever gone into your attic during the dog days of summer? It gets insanely hot up there! All that heat is trapped above your head and if you don't think that it affects your electric bill, then you've got another thing coming. Not to mention, if you're like most people you probably have things stored up there like clothing, odds and ends or maybe pictures. In the summertime, the temperature in your attic can reach over 150 degrees. You can imagine what the heat is doing to your valuables! One way to control the amount of heat and humidity that collects in your attic is with the installation of an attic fan. An attic fan works just like the exhaust fan in your bathroom, but on a much larger scale. Its a bigger, more powerful fan that can substantially cool your entire house without using much energy doing it. If you notice, your house probably has vents on each end of the attic. The vents allow cooler air to flow into the attic while the hot air escapes. This is a nearly useless method of cooling the attic, mainly because the attic vents are positioned much lower than the point in the gabled roof. This enables the hot air to rise and collect above the vents, causing the temperature to increase throughout the attic. A properly installed attic fan pulls cool air into the attic through one vent, forcing the cool air across the attic and expels the hot air out of the other side of the attic, effectively getting rid of the super-heated air. A thermostat is usually installed that automatically cycles the fan on and off depending on the attic's temperature.
Recessed lighting as the name suggests, is lighting fixtures that recess into walls, with just the light being thrown out. No other part of the fixture is generally on display. Recessed lighting fixtures use concealed wiring and need to be planned for during construction. There are three basic parts in recessed lighting fixtures the trim, the housing and the lamp. The kind of trim selected will have an effect on the kind of lighting produced. The use of reflectors enhances light production, the use of baffles minimize glare and reduce brightness and the use of adjustable and directional fittings can maximize usage by rendering the fixture versatile. Recessed lighting fixtures are mounted above the ceiling so as to give a flush undulating look. These fixtures use narrow spotlights or wider angle floodlights. Both these light sources have their own reflectors. Depending upon the type of fitting placed inside either common or energy saving bulbs can be fitted inside these fixtures.
