Expert Advice
Wonder why your bathroom went dark or what the annoying chirping sound in your home is? L&M Electric is here to bring you helpful hints that might shine a light on your problems and prevent unsightly electrical issues.  A sound electrical system is peace of mind!
Bath Outlet Not Working
In most cases your G.F.C.I. (Ground Fault Current Interrupter) has tripped. Start by unplugging everything plugged into bathroom outlets. Find and push the reset button located in one of your bathrooms and then push the set button back in. This should restore power back to your G.F.C.I..
Breaker Tripped and Won’t Reset
Unplug everything plugged into outlets. At your breaker box, turn the breaker to the off position for a few seconds, and then turn it back on. If these steps do not correct the problem, you may need to contact L&M Electric.
Smoke Detector is Chirping
Designed as a safety feature, the smoke detector will chirp when the battery is dying. To correct the problem, change the battery in all of your smoke detectors at the same time. It is a good practice to do this once per year.
Helpful Tip
Using dimmers in place of switches will increase the life of the light bulb(s) in the fixture(s). The dimmer will also decrease the use of electricity resulting in a lower electric bill.
