Frequently Asked Electrical Questions
I have lost power in part of my house. What should I check before calling an electrician?
The first thing to check is if you have any breakers tripped. If so, turn it off and then back on. Secondly, check to see if any GFCI receptacles that have tripped — these are the rectangular receptacles beside your sink in the bathroom and kitchen and are also located outside. If the GFCI is tripped, try resetting it and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem is affecting several circuits in the house, you may want to call your power company to have them check their service. If you have a smart meter, they can tell you over the phone if the problem is on their line or something within the house. If you have tried all of those things, then it is time to call an electrician.
How often should I replace my smoke detectors?
Smoke-detector manufacturers and fire-safety officials state that all smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years. Just because you replace the 9-volt battery and press the test button annually does not mean that the detector is functioning properly. Some manufacturers even sell smoke detectors with a 10-year battery.
