A New Code Change That Affects You

Cities have adopted the 2014 National Electric Code. That includes Little Rock, North Little Rock, Sherwood, Jacksonville, Cabot, Benton, Bryant, Conway, etc. Contrary to what’s been said by some legislators at the state level, cities are beginning to enforce it in its entirety. What it means is more safety for you which translated to a higher cost in installing certain things. The biggest change for homeowners is that all outlets, either new ones added or old ones changed out, are now required to be protected by an arc fault. You can find out more information on those here. That includes ALL areas of your home except the bathrooms. There are other areas in which we have to install GFCI outlets as well. Again, this all about safety for you and your family. Check out our website for more information.

Everyone Wants to Make a Quick Buck Off of You.

Happy New Year! Last month, we talked about the importance of sizing a generator to meet your needs. So far we haven’t seen much winter precipitation but it sure has been cold. I have noticed a disturbing trend over the past few months that needs to be addressed. Normally, I wouldn’t mention any names, but in this case, it’s a cause for concern. I apologize in advance for my rant. Your family, finances, and well being are important to me and I want you to be a well informed consumer. If you’ve purchased a home generator from us, great! We’ll keep it in top shape for you. If you haven’t or know someone that is considering purchasing one, share this article and send them to our website. We have some other great articles there to help them make an informed decision. Here we go…

Record Winter Predicted! Are You Prepared?

The local news stations and radio stations have been reporting it. It’s all over social media including Facebook and Twitter. Normally, it’s just a conversation starter “how’s the weather?” I tend to be a bit pessimistic about such things but, I can’t ignore them either. So, what’s the big fuss?

Farmer’s Almanac has predicted another record cold for winter. No big deal, right? Not for school kids. It means staying home from school and playing in the snow. Parents get to stay home and play with their children. Good times, right? Sure, except for the other side of the coin.
