Why You Need GFCI Outlets in Your Home
When installing electrical outlets in your home, ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets are a must. These outlets are required in areas of your home where there is an increased risk of shock due to water or other electrical hazards. These outlets will turn off the electrical circuit when they sense an imbalance to protect you from electrocution.
GFCI outlets are required in the following areas of your home or property:
- Laundry and utility rooms
- Crawlspaces and unfinished basements
- Wet bars
- Spa and pool areas
Signs You Need to Replace Your Generator
Whole house generators can be great additions to your home. These systems can provide assurances that your home will be able to function as usual during power failures due to strong storms or other issues. That’s why when your unit starts to malfunction, it’s important to replace it before it fails.
Some signs to watch for that can indicate you need a new generator installed can include:
- It has problems starting up. Your unit should turn on automatically when your home loses power. If it’s not, then you should have it inspected by an electrical contractor to see if it’s time to install a new system.
- It’s using more fuel than usual. If it’s requiring more fuel to function, it can indicate the unit is losing efficiency.
- Your appliances aren’t working properly or your lights are flickering. If you use a generator to run your appliances or lights and you notice an interruption in their flow of electricity, it can signal your unit isn’t functioning as it should.
- It needs frequent repairs. If your system needs multiple repairs, it can be more cost-effective to replace it.
- It’s emitting carbon monoxide. If your unit is emitting too much carbon monoxide it should be replaced immediately, as this can pose serious health risks to your household.

4 Types of Landscape Lighting
Landscape lighting can be a quick and easy way to transform your yard or walking path. There are several types of lights to choose from, including these four varieties:
- Path lighting: This is one of the simplest outdoor lighting techniques. You can select features that can light up a pathway with both ambient or direct light. These lights can provide safety as they allow a better walking path throughout your yard, but they can also be decorative to enhance the look of your outdoor space.
- Grazing: This lighting is used to cover a flat surface, like a wall, step or hedge. Lights can be used under railings, seat walls, steps, or other areas where you want to differentiate hardscape areas or elevation changes in your outdoor space.
- Moon lighting: This type of lighting focuses on trees. It allows you to light up trees as a focal point in your yard by hanging light fixtures in their branches. This will light up the tree and the landscaping around them.
- Up lighting: This is one of the most popular types of lights. This allows you to highlight vertical elements in your yard like a tree, flag pole, sign, and other parts of your yard you want to feature. You place the light on the ground and point it up at the vertical element.
