Choosing an Eco-Friendly and Affordable Back-Up Electricity Generator | By Dallas Electrician

Editor’s Note: This article has been edited and updated from its original content with permission from National News Today. To view the original article please visit www.nationalnewstoday.com

With all the bad weather we have been hammered with this winter, our electric power stations have been maxed out trying to keep up with the demand for electricity.  With the cold, another problem has been water pipes freezing at the electric generating stations causing them to have to shut down for repairs.  Long story short, over 55 million people in America this year have dealt with power shortages.  Either being rolling blackouts, or simply no power for days.  I have received multiple inquiries from customers wanting to know if there is an alternative means to keeping the electricity on in their home without using a gas-powered generator.  Their reasons for not being able to use a gas powered generator ranged from “I live in a HOA where generators are not allowed on the outside of our home and I can’t put it on the inside due to noise and fumes,” to “I don’t have any place outside to put the generator that guarantees it won’t be tampered with or stolen.”  Some of my customers that live in condos or town homes only have a balcony which really “limits them on space.”Affordable back up generator

Having these problems and questions brought to me, I started to look for a solution to help people in their time of need.  What I found was the IndoorGenerator.  This product was Eco-Friendly and addresses the needs of a growing population using an old electricity infrastructure.  As a Dallas Electrician, I found the IndoorGenerator to be an affordable, gas-free, rechargeable, silent power supply unit that you can use indoors when you lose power.  This is 24/7 protection for your computers, refrigerator, TV, lights, and much more.  This protects you for at least 2 hours and up to 7 days, not just minutes like traditional UPS’s.  It is simple with “plug and play” installation and usage.  The more units you put in series gives you the possibility of endless power supply!

These units come packaged in either dark wood cabinets, or light wood cabinets.  They also come in DuraRock or metal enclosures.  These different enclosures make it possible to set these units either inside, where they will still look good, or outside on a patio.

To charge these units, you just plug them into your existing power supply and they start charging immediately.  As soon as the power goes out, they automatically transfer over to stored energy without any interruption.  Another neat feature is that there is a solar accessory that can be used to recharge these power supplies.  These solar screens are collapsible and easy to store when not in use.  So if the power goes off, and you use your stored power, it can be replaced with simple sunlight.

When considering  an affordable back-up electricity generator, by an eco-friendly Dallas Electrician or just a top Dallas electrician for your home wiring installation or Troubleshooting Electrical Repair needs you can trust ElectricMan to get the job done right.

Top Dallas Electrician Tips Ӏ Home Wiring Installation and Troubleshooting Installation Repair

Editor’s Note: This article has been edited and updated from its original content with permission from National News Today. To view the original article please visit www.nationalnewstoday.com

I was over at a customer’s home troubleshooting electrical repair on a fire that started in the ceiling above their living room.  When the customer asked me if I could see why the fire started, I told them “Yes!”  It was quite obvious a previous home wiring installation had gone bad.  I asked her if she remembered who performed the installation, and she said “It was a long time ago, I can’t remember.”  If she would’ve had one of my employees who are top Dallas Electricians, this would’ve never happened.  – Nick Schaeffer

Aging homes have increased electrical danger.  In the U.S. almost 69 million housing units are more than 20 years old.  In DFW, almost 1 million housing units are more than 20 years old.  These homes frequently have overloaded outlets and circuits.  Some of these homes even have faulty electrical systems.  Understanding how things are done and the proper way to do them is key to longevity and happiness inside of your home.

Here are some top Dallas Electrician tips to help with home wiring installation and troubleshooting electrical repair:

  1. When painting a room, don’t paint the outlet.  This could cause the receptacle to overheat.  If the oNick-Schaeffer-dallas-electrician-troubleshootingutlet is already painted, the paint flakes could get pushed inside when you plug something in causing a bad connection.
  2. When installing your own dimmer for lighting, make sure you size the dimmer wattage with the amount of light bulb wattage so you don’t overheat or melt your dimmer.
  3. Extension cords are not suitable for permanently installed appliances such as garage door openers, dishwashers, freezers, microwaves.
  4. It is never safe to tap on to an existing wire in the attic to add a new electrical location without proper junction boxes or other approved enclosures.
  5. Overloading electrical circuits occurs when too many appliances are plugged into a single electrical circuit or outlet resulting in a tripped circuit breaker and overheating.

There is no substitute for a licensed, insured professional electrician.  Having a handy man or a friend of the family perform the work could not only endanger your family in your home, but also cost you more money in the long run.  When considering a top Dallas electrician for your home wiring installation or Troubleshooting Electrical Repair needs you can trust ElectricMan to get the job done right.

How to Protect Home From Lighting Strikes By Using 24/7 Emergency Local Dallas Electrician

Editor’s Note: This article has been edited and updated from its original content with permission from National News Today. To view the original article please visit www.nationalnewstoday.com

30% of all surges/outages are caused by lightning strikes

The strike doesn’t even have to be a direct hit on your home but can occur within half a mile.  As a matter of fact, the majority of surges that most people take are from problems at someone else’s home or somewhere further down on the power company lines.  A surge doesn’t have to be lightning; it can come from an automobile accident that hits a power pole or even frLighting-Dallas-Power-Outageom a routine maintenance on the main power lines when they turn the power back on.  This off and on of the power with the main electrical lines can send surges into your home or business that I have seen destroy lots of electronic equipment and appliances.

Almost every home has multiple computers, and expensive home entertainment systems.  Even our appliances are high-tech with monitors built into the doors of refrigerators and laundry appliances with electronic controls.  These items are especially vulnerable to spikes in your home’s electrical current that may cause melted circuit boards and overheated wires.  Repairs to these expensive gadgets are much more costly than replacing a blown out light bulb or electrical outlet.

There is no substitute for surge protectors plugged into your wall outlet that allows you to plug in all of your equipment for protection.  This is the equivalent to using a seat belt that only goes across your waist and not your chest.  By installing a whole house surge protector in your electrical panel, you’re adding protection.  Let’s say you take a surge (or get in an accident).  Would you want just a lap belt, or a full body protector?

No matter what you’re protecting, whether it is your family, your business, or your possessions, you should always be prepared and proactive instead of reactive.  With simple surge protection, you could be saving yourself a lot of time and headache.  This is as close to the “easy” button as you can get.

When you have a general repair or an electrical emergency, you can trust ElectricMan to get the job done right.

Why You Should Have Your Federal Pacific Electric Panel Replaced ASAP!

Editor’s Note: This article has been edited and updated from its original content with permission from National News Today. To view the original article please visit www.nationalnewstoday.com.

The electrical panel inside of your home or office is where the breakers (or sometimes called switches) are located.  This is the “heart” of your electrical system.  Just like the heart inside of your body, if this major organ does not work properly, your blood circulation and limbs don’t stand a chance.  You could look at your electrical wiring as being your blood vessels and your appliances as being your limbs.  If your electrical panel, “aka” heart, is healthy and strong, your electrical wiring will operate properly, allowing all of your appliances to last longer.  Beware of old electrical panels; these could become a hazardto your home or business.

NIck-Schaeffer-Federal-Pacific-Panel-Hazard

Find out why you should have a Dallas electrician replace your electrical panel now rather than later.

There have been a lot of questions about Federal Pacific electric panels.  The Dallas Morning News ran an article on the potential of fire that these panels possess.  With 27 years of experience as an electrical contractor, I can tell you first hand that these panels are unpredictable and unsafe.  We had a customer who was renting a house outside of Dallas and was having air conditioning problems.  Her air conditioning contractor was attempting to replace a compressor that had completely melted and failed.  When he attempted to change the motor, he discovered that  the power was still on and got a really nasty shock.  The electrical breaker should have tripped when this motor failed.  It didn’t, soshe called Electricman Inc. to find out why.  When we went out to her home and checked it out, we found she had a Federal Pacific Electric Panel and the air conditioning breaker was melted inside of the panel and still working.  We told her she needed to change this panel.  The owner of the house she was renting was on vacation and came back two weeks later.  He told her “Yes, have them change that electrical panel out!”  This was on a Sunday night at about 10:30 pm.  She called and asked us to come out the next day.  We said “Sure, we will be there at 9 am!”  She asked if we could make it 9:30 because she had to take her kids to school.  We were happy to oblige.  When our technician showed up at 9:30, along with the customer from dropping her kids off, they both found the fire department at the house putting out the fire in her garage!  In the time it took her to get the kids to school, this electrical panel failed catastrophically.

Another customer of ours was home when he smelled smoke.  He looked out in the backyard to see where it was coming from and noticed sparks shooting out of his pool equipment and flames climbing up the wall to his house.  He ran into the garage where his Federal Pacific Electric Panel was and turned off the breaker for his melted pool equipment.  When the equipment went bad, this electrical breaker should have shut off way before the sparks and fire.  Lucky for him, he caught it just as it started.  Catastrophe avoided.

Failure of these panels is not an “if,” but “when”.  A quick evaluation by a knowledgeable and licensed electrician can make a big difference.  Don’t gamble on your security, call and get a free evaluation and estimate today.  You could be saving more than just material things.  Whether you have a general repair or an electrical emergency, you can trust ElectricMan to get the job done right.

4 Need to Know Lighting Installation Tips

Editor’s Note: This article has been edited and updated from its original content with permission from National News Today. To view the original article please visit www.nationalnewstoday.com

A large amount of the calls we go out on are for lighting fixture replacement/changes.  A lot of the customers say “I usually do this myself,” but I don’t have time to take care of this right now.  Another common quote we hear is “We have been working on this all weekend, and can’t get it to work.”  Last but not least, a favorite quote of mine that I hear is “I am so tired of this outdated looking lighting that exists in my home.  Can you please bring it up to date?”  Usually this is where I chuckle and say “ElectricMan to the Rescue!” – Nick Schaeffer

If you’re planning to replace or make changes to your lighting fixtures the ElectricMan have some very helpful tips:

  1. Understand the way your home was initially wired. Usually the wiring is signified by “hot” being the black and “neutral” being the white colored wires. In older homes, this coloring is not on the wires and a top electrician should take it from there. If you are still game, even though these wires are not properly colored, you can figure out which wire is the “hot” with a transient voltage tick tester. This type of tester will tell you which wire the power is on. The other wire would then be the “neutral”. Be careful when doing this testing with the power on, you may be subject to a “shocking experience”. When in doubt, call a top elNick-Schaeffer-2ectrician!
  2. If you are installing a chandelier replacement, the wiring that comes on the fixture from the manufacturer is what we call “zip cord” and is not colored white and black.  The way they identify this type of wire is the “hot” is the smooth side and the “neutral” is the side with ridges.  So if you feel this wire with your fingers, you will notice one side is smooth and one side has ridges.  This will tell you how to hook these wires up independently.  If this is not properly hooked up per side, you could potentially get a “nasty shock” when you change out a light bulb.
  3. Pendant lighting seems to be all the rage right now.  This type of lighting can be used to decoratively light up kitchen islands and kitchen bar-type counters.  This is a creative way to separate your kitchen from your living room.  Typically, homes are not pre-wired for these lights, and wiring will have to be added before they can be installed.  I highly suggest when wiring for these lights, that a new switch leg be installed for independent control.  As always, installing new wiring to your existing electrical should be done by a top electrician.
  4. Recessed cans can clean up your ceiling and do away with unsightly light fixtures installed everywhere.  When installing a recessed can, the type of trim is essential to maximizing the amount of light that you can get in an area.  A baffled or recessed trim will turn a light into a spot, whereas a flush mount trim allows the light to start at the ceiling and move throughout the room.  This gives a much more even look upon the finished product.  Any electrician that has done a lot of installations should be able to guide you in the proper direction so that the style of lighting that you are looking for will be achieved.  Be careful attempting these by yourself, drywall will need to be cut for installation, and you never know where a wire or plumbing pipe may be hiding.

Chandelier replacement, pendant lighting and recessed cans are  cheap and affordable ways to completely change the look of your home.  If you are attempting this on your own, and run into a problem, a good-hearted electrician will be happy to discuss with you where you went wrong and what it is going to take to fix it.  Most electricians are happy to do free estimates, and help design a quality finished product.  Whether you have a general repair or an electrical emergency, you can trust ElectricMan to get the job done right.

Frequently Asked Questions Ӏ Finding a Dallas Electrician

Editor’s Note: This article has been edited and updated from its original content with permission from National News Today. To view the original article please visit www.nationalnewstoday.com

Nick-Schaeffer-ElectricManInc 500x375

Learn what to look for when choosing an Electrician.

In my 27 years, I have heard these questions a lot: “Why is it so hard to find the top electrician for my electrical repairs? There are so many choices and my problem seems so easy, any electrician should be able to do it. Does it matter who I call? Aren’t all electricians the same? How do I find an expert electric man?” – Nick Shaeffer

The answer is no – not all Dallas electrician technicians are the same! Many electricians like to think they can do everything electrically because they wired a store, or a big industrial complex. Truth be told, a tested, top electrician has done that – and multiple other things, making him well-rounded. To be well-rounded takes time and opportunity. Sufficient home and business electricians have to develop knowledge that can only be obtained with hands-on experience. Every home or business built through the decades has been wired differently. Along the way, they have been altered or added to, using multiple techniques of wiring. This can be confusing to an inexperienced, common electrician trying to investigate a home electrical repair.

A well-rounded electrician is “the key” to customer satisfaction. But how do you find one? Here at ElectricMan, Inc., we’ve developed and written a 2 page pre-employment competency test to ensure the employment of only expert technicians. This must be completed before we even review their application. This test tells us exactly what an electrician has done and seen. It cannot be passed correctly with just knowledge out of a book. If the electrician has been doing all levels and types of work, this test will show it. After passing this test, an extensive local, state, and nationwide criminal and sex offender search is done. Once we know what kind of electrical talent and type of person we have, a 90-day probationary period starts. All of this “due diligence” is done for the safety and security of a customer who has no idea who they are relying on. Not all companies go through these necessary steps! The referral from “a friend of a brother’s neighbor” definitely doesn’t provide the peace of mind you need when a stranger is in your home.

Another important area that a consumer should investigate when considering an electrician, is insurance! “Does my electrician have the “state minimum,” or are they capable of covering everything – inside and out?” This is very important! The State of Texas only requires $300,000 to be licensed. Add up the value of your home or business; is the Texas requirement really enough to cover your losses if a home electrical repair mistake is made and your home is damaged?

So, it is easy to see that if a couple of critical points are not verified, there is no telling what type of electrician might ring your doorbell! Avoid the possibility of getting an under-qualified electrician and instead get the expert electrician in Dallas when the safety and security of your home, business, and family is counting on you.  Whether you have a general repair or an electrical emergency, you can trust ElectricMan to get the job done right. We’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so don’t ever hesitate to give us a call!

ElectricMan Earns Angie’s List Super Service Award

ElectricMan Inc. Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

ElectricMan Inc. has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the Electrical Contractor companies in Dallas/Fort Worth market were able to do it.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

“We put the word ‘service’ back into ‘customer service.’ Well-trained technicians put your safety and needs first, not end-of-week quotas. Our employees are not on commission. We are your trusted source for all electrical needs and cutting-edge technology. Service and respect with family-owned values is what we do.”

Nick Schaeffer | Owner

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”

###

Angie’s List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie’s List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

Steps to Take When Choosing the Right Home Electrician

When choosing a home electrician, where do you begin? Some people call the first name that comes up in their online search, others pour over reviews, while still others look to the recommendations of friends and family to help them find an electrician. When you’re looking for an electrical service provider, you want to choose one that is referral based and a true craftsman- not just a fly-by-night contractor who hasn’t been trained to safely provide electrical services. What should you look for in a home electrician? We find this list of four qualities to be both compelling and useful.

  • Integrity. Warren Buffet, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, once said that the top quality he looks for when hiring is integrity. The next two qualities are high energy and intelligence, but it’s integrity that’s most important. You need an electrician with a reputation for integrity, which translates into following through on what is promised and providing high-quality work.
  • Intent. What is on your electrician’s list of top priorities? Is the business geared more toward making money or meeting the customers’ needs? Is quality the company’s primary concern? Choose a home electrician committed to providing superior service and maintaining a staff of well-qualified professionals, licensed, certified and background checked.
  • Capability. You want a home electrician who is a true craftsman, not someone who just decided that electrical work was a good way to make money. Ask about the electrician’s educational background and whether he or she has been trained properly. Choose a company that’s licensed,insured and adheres to NEC standards.
  • Results. A craftsman is known by his results, and the work he’s already done speaks to the work he’ll do in the future. Read reviews and look carefully at what’s being said. Are there satisfied, repeat customers? Is your home electrician very busy because of all the ongoing projects from happy customers? Paying attention to reputation is important when you’re trying to find an electrician.

No matter why you’re seeking a home electrician, ElectricMan is a source you can trust. A family-owned business, we offer quality electrical services because we only employ professional, licensed, certified electricians. Whether you have a general repair or an electrical emergency, you can trust ElectricMan to get the job done right.

5 Ways Homeowners Can Save Energy and Money

If you’re a homeowner, you’re probably looking for ways to save energy and money. There are so many hidden costs involved in home ownership, and if you’re not careful, your electrical consumption can be a big factor in those costs. However, it’s easier than you might think to save on energy if you just follow a few simple tips.

  • Look for ways to cut your energy costs. Use compact fluorescent light bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs and turn off lights that aren’t in use. Wash your clothes in cold water and hang them to dry instead of using an electric dryer. Perhaps the simplest way to save energy is to turn things off when you’re not using them because there is less electrical consumption involved in turning things back on than in leaving them running.
  • Increase your family’s safety in a cost-effective way. First, install ground fault circuit interrupters, especially in your kitchen and bathroom. These are simple, effective devices that prevent accidental electrocution. Install arc fault circuit interrupters too, because these innovative circuit breakers cost less than $100, detect electrical problems and can prevent electrical fires. Other simple, cost-effective safety measures include child safety outlets, whole house surge protectors and smoke detectors.
  • Find easy ways to update an older home. It may sound daunting to update the electrical system in your home, and in fact, it does require an investment and professional workmanship to bring your home into the modern era. However, there are simple things you can upgrade without breaking the bank, including the installation of outdoor motion sensor security lights and a dedicated grounded circuit to protect your electronics. Once your home is better able to handle the electrical load you’re asking of it, you’ll not only be safer, but you’ll also save energy.
  • Plan for shifts in technology. Knowing how much more electricity we use now than we did in the past, we can assume we’ll need even more energy in the future. It’s good to think ahead and prepare for this, and one way to do it is to install a power conditioner, which cleans the electrical signal entering your home in order to provide more reliable energy. Another good idea is to hire a qualified electrician to help you identify shortcomings in your current electrical systems, as well as provide you with information about innovations that can help you save energy.
  • Choose wisely when shopping for a technician. How do you find such a qualified electrician? Look for referral based companies with a reputation for integrity, reliability and a commitment to putting the needs of their clients first.

If you’re ready to save energy, ElectricMan wants to help you figure out how to do it! We want to be your go-to source not only for electrical service but also for advice and information on all things electrical.

Understanding Electricity: The 5 Hidden Mysteries of Electricity

You use it every day, but do you really understand electricity? It’s important, because, without understanding electricity, it’s hard to maintain electrical safety in your home. In order to understand electricity, you basically need to grasp five key concepts; we like to call them the five hidden mysteries of electricity.

  • Mystery Number One: The kWh and understanding your utility bill. Do you know what a kWh is? A watt measures the amount of energy a device is using, and 1000 watts add up to a kilowatt. When you use 1000 watts of energy for an hour, it adds up to a kilowatt-hour, abbreviated kWh. Your electric company measures your kWh to determine your energy usage and, by extension, your cost. Often companies charge a higher rate per kWh for those who use more energy overall, so it’s a good idea to take a look at your bill and see how you’re doing, month to month.
  • Mystery Number Two: The importance of turning off the lights. “Turn out the lights” is more than just the favorite saying of dads around the world; it is a reliable way to save energy and money. However, what your dad may not have told you is that there are many other much more effective ways to cut down on energy consumption. For instance, in addition to turning off your lights, make sure you replace old incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs, which cut energy costs by about 70 percent. You can also save money by bumping up your thermostat, turning off appliances that aren’t in use, choosing Energy Star compliant appliances, running your dishwasher only when it’s full and washing your clothes in cold water whenever possible. These are just a few of the many ways to save on electricity, but if you can remember to turn off the lights, you’re making a good start.
  • Mystery Number Three: The dangers of electricity. We learn from an early age that electricity can be dangerous, but what does that really mean? Electricity is a powerful force, and when it flows into your home unchecked, it can cause serious damage and even a house fire. That’s why you need to be sure your circuit breakers are in working order and the electrical system in your house is up-to-date. Another important aspect of electrical safety is understanding its conduction. For instance, water is a very effective conductor of electricity, so it’s crucial that you keep all plugged in appliances such as hair dryers away from water. If you’re ever in flooded conditions, avoid walking into flooded areas until they’ve been cleared by the utility company.
  • Mystery Number Four: The power outage. Power outages and surges are usually caused by lightning strikes. The lightning doesn’t need to strike your home to knock out your home electricity; it can be a half-mile away and have the same effect. Unfortunately, the electronic devices in our homes are extremely vulnerable to damage from power surges and outages, so it’s important to take steps to protect them. Unplug electronics that you aren’t using, especially in stormy weather.
  • Mystery Number Five: Installations, electricians and intentions. Does your electrician really have your best interest at heart? Whenever there’s a housing boom, there are people who jump on the “contractor” bandwagon without the necessary experience or ethics to provide high-quality service. Look for a referral-based company with licensed, certified electricians and a reputation for good work and reliable service. A true professional will work not only to make your home safer and help you save energy but also to help you understand electricity so you can be an informed consumer.

We hope we’ve made electricity a little less mysterious and provided information that leaves you better able to understand electricity.
