The "Best of the Worst" 2016 Code Violations It's that time again — when we present some of the most popular and bizarre Code violations we ran this year. Thanks to NEC Consultant Russ LeBlanc, who continues to amaze us with a seemingly unlimited supply of electrical blunders from the field, we present (in no particular order) the "best of the worst" What's Wrong Here photos from 2016. Check out the photo gallery, read each hint, click the next slide, and then see analysis from Russ on each Code violation (based on the 2014 NEC). This particular installation just might burst your bubble. Read More

Tips for a Healthy Home Electrical System It’s easy to take your home electrical system for granted since consistent, reliable electric service has always been right at our fingertips. Unfortunately, for as long as we’ve had electricity running through our homes, there have been safety mishaps. Each year, residential electrical fires and accidents result in hundreds of American deaths, thousands of critical injuries, and millions in property damage. Thorough, routine inspections help to maintain your home’s electrical safety. To make it easy, Silver State Electric has compiled this handy guide designed to keep your home safe from electrical hazards. Outdoor Inspection Keep trees and bushes trimmed. 1. If your electric service comes into your home through overhead wires, hire a professional to trim trees around electrical lines. 2. Keep trees and bushes clear of cables or wires on outside surfaces of your home. Examine breaker panels. 1. Carefully open the lid and examine the panel’s interior. Look for burned or scorched areas, as well as loose wiring. Don’t touch anything that looks unsafe or out of place! Instead, call Silver State Electric to inspect your panel. 2. Consider the installation of arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs), which protect against fire by monitoring a circuit’s electrical current. If unintended arcing occurs, the AFCI shuts down the offending circuit. Indoor Inspection Inspect switches and outlets. 1. Outlets that are warm to the touch, discolored, or making buzzing/crackling sounds should be inspected. Call Silver State Electric to schedule your home inspection. Test outlets. 1. Use a receptacle tester from the local hardware store, or plug in a lamp or radio. If an outlet isn’t working, it may indicate a loose wire—or a bigger problem. Test GFCI outlets. 1. Plug in a receptacle tester or lamp and press the “Test” button. The lamp should turn off. If the GFCI is working properly, the lamp will turn on again when you press the “Reset” button. Test carbon monoxide and smoke alarms. 1. The alarm should sound when you press the “Test” button. Check electrical cords. 1. Inspect for damaged, cracked or loose cords. They should be replaced immediately. 2. Do not run cords across doorways or under carpets. If this sounds like your home, it’s time to contact Silver State Electric about installing additional electrical outlets. Check your light bulbs. 1. Make sure bulbs don’t exceed your lamps’ maximum wattage recommendations. 2. Be sure each bulb has a shade or globe, including those inside closet areas. Materials left too close to an exposed bulb can cause a fire.

Is your electrical ready for the winter? Test electrical outlets & GFCI outlets • Plug in a tester or lamp and press the “Test” button. The lamp should turn off. If the GFCI is working properly, the lamp should switch back on when you press “Reset.” If GFCI’s or other outlets are not working properly or if cords feel hot to the touch when you plug or unplug them, call Silver State Electric • Use a receptacle tester from the local hardware store or plug in a lamp or radio. If an outlet isn’t working, it may be a loose wire—or a sign of a bigger problem. Test carbon monoxide and smoke alarms • Seasonal checks of carbon monoxide and smoke alarms are a good idea. Alarms should sound when you press the “Test” button, and should be replaced every five to 10 years, depending upon manufacturer recommendations. Prepare your generator for storms • Get ready for power outages by inspecting your generator for corrosion, changing the oil, inspect/change the air filter, and filling the gas tank. Silver State Electric can provide a thorough generator evaluation to ensure that you’re prepared for storm season. Regular maintenance ensures safe and reliable generator performance.

Common Electrical Problems in a Home Problems With Light Bulbs and Fixtures Light bulbs are burning out at a high rate. Some lights are flickering or blinking. A recessed light (flush to the ceiling) goes off sometimes and later works again. Some lights get extra bright while others run dim. Dead Outlet Problems A set of outlets or lights simply went dead. Half of an outlet works, but the other half doesn't always work. Outlets have gone dead in bathrooms, garage, kitchen, or outdoors. Tripping-Breaker Problems A circuit breaker or outlet has tripped off and won't reset. A circuit breaker often trips when the microwave or a hair dryer is used. Common Electrical Problems With Switches A wall switch gets rather warm. Two switches are supposed to control one set of lights but don't always work right. A switch does not seem to control anything at all. Other Home Electrical Problems Your new clothes dryer won't heat up -- just like the old one wouldn't. Your electric bill seems to be quite a bit higher than normal.
