Protect Your Home and Your Family with a Generator

Monday, October 7th, 2019

generatorIt’s just barely October, and not all of you are going to want to hear this, but—winter is on its way. Winters in Vermont can be beautiful, but they are also a lot of hard work and they can be quite stressful at times. If you ask us, it pays to take any measures possible to reduce that stress in any way possible. One recommendation that we cannot make strongly enough is that you take advantage of a whole-house generator.

A whole-house generator works much the same as a portable generator in principle, but on a much larger scale. While portable generators are great for power radios and other equipment for camping trips or tailgating events, they are not going to power your entire home when the power goes out due to winter storms. A whole-house generator can do just that, though. Or, at least, it can when it is properly installed and serviced. To ensure that this is the case, schedule your whole-house generator services with our electricians in Ludlow, VT.

fanSeriously? There’s a chain right on it! Just pull the thing!

Do I Need GFCI Outlets?

Monday, May 7th, 2018

GFCI-outletWhile there are many handy homeowners out there, the fact remains that there are still plenty of jobs that must be completed by trained, professional electricians in Acworth, NH. Case in point, the installation of new outlets in a new home or in those homes that are ready for an upgrade. One important question, in such instances, is which type of outlet should be used. If you think that all outlets are the same, then you are obviously not familiar with GFCI outlets—though chances are that you have seen an, in all likelihood, used them previously.

GFCI outlets provide a bit of extra protection from the potential dangers that are inherent with the use of electricity. Now, modern electrical systems are typically very safe for people to use, and that is precisely the point. If you think that you don’t need something like GFCI outlets because your system is already safe, well: it’s safe precisely due to such technologies. So read on, and let us know if you are ready to upgrade your outlets.
