As a parent there is nothing more dear to my heart than my children. Their safety and security is something that is constantly on my mind. As a parent, I want to protect them from harm. I teach them about stranger danger, bullying and the impact that media and outside influences have on their perceptions of the world around them. Yet moreover, as an electrician, I have a deep understanding of the potential hazards that lay in wait that most, especially a young child, don’t have when it comes to electricity. In the United States, injury is the leading cause of death among children and nearly half occur in the home. So I feel it is my duty, as a parent to educate my children about these potential hazards and make my home as child friendly as possible.

Common types of electric wiring in your home

In 1879, Thomas Edison exhibited his new invention, electric lighting, in a neighborhood in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Originally, this new invention was only available to the wealthiest of families. Yet, by the turn of the century, electricity inside of residences were commonplace.

Now, 137 years later, many changes have occurred regarding electrical wiring within your home, thanks mostly, to the National Electrical Code requirements and modern technology. Contributions to the NEC code are made and revised every three years in an attempt to prevent loss of life or property due to improper installation of electrical systems. Therefore, electrical systems and wiring particularly, has evolved greatly over the years. Although much of the practices and materials that were used in the past have been phased out, much of the early wiring that was installed are still present in homes across lake Almanor and Susanville.

Are #rodents wreaking havoc on your wiring? Find out why and how to fix the issue.

A common question we get from our clients is, “What can I do to prevent rodents from chewing through my home’s electrical wiring?”. Often, they experience a rodent related electrical outage of some sort due to the fact that the area that they live in is infested with field mice or other critters like squirrels who would rather live inside of your warm and cozy home than out in the cold.

The Importance of Regular Plumbing Maintenance

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – Benjamin Franklin’s famous quote is as relevant today as it was when he was pioneering our new country 250 years ago. Franklin, who was a thrifty and keen businessman, understood that frequent, small maintenance expenses far outweighed the cost of having his equipment broke-down and unproductive for any amount of time.

I heard the first Mountain Chickadee the other morning sing that familiar summertime song of “Cheeseburger” and I was reminded that spring has most definitely sprung in Northeastern California. El Nino was particularly strong this winter season in Plumas, Lassen, and Tehama Counties. Eagle Lake, Lake Almanor, and Bucks Lake water levels continue to rise and there is much anticipation that this year won’t disappoint as the Northern Sierra snowpacks sit at about 96% of normal.

As the days warm up and we are able to return to our cabins in the Lake Almanor area and poke around the outside of our homes, it becomes time to inventory the toll that Mother Nature has inflicted over the winter. Whether you are performing regular inspections of your mechanical systems or one of our professionally trained technicians comes to your home, it is important that you have a plan. I have compiled a handy checklist for homeowners to help them put together a springtime home safety inspection so that they can better identify potential hazards before they become much bigger problems. Please take the time to study the guide and contact Slusher Plumbing Heating Cooling Electric if you have any specific questions regarding troubles at your home. Download and print off a copy of our list to take with your while you perform your inspection.

Happy Spring Cleaning,
David Jr.
