The Dangers of Frayed Wires

Frayed wiring needs to be fixed as soon as possible to prevent a fire in your home.

If you have ever seen an outdoor electrical line come down and arc, you have seen an instance of frayed wiring.

In your home when you see frayed wires, your first instinct might be to strip the wires.  This can be just as dangerous as the frayed wiring. Experience is needed when it comes to faulty wiring. To attempt this yourself puts you, your family and your home at risk.

BSD Electric will be able to find the problem, fix the problem and save you time and money by handling the project correctly the first time.

Save Money with Solar Electric Panels

Today, homeowners are looking for ways to reduce utility costs and save some money.  One way to obtain this reduction in utility costs is with the use of solar electric panels.

The solar panel absorbs the light during the day and works to power your home.

By adding the solar electric panel to your home, you can use the solar power until it is used up, at which time the home electrical supply will start up and keep your home running until the solar panel is recharged.

You need to choose the correct size, since if the size is not correct you might not see enough savings in your electrical bill. The solar electric panel must be installed in the right position on the home to work and function properly.

If you decide to do the installation yourself, you will need to find the sunniest part of the house. This is where you will want to install the solar panel. Keep in mind that you have to do the wiring and hook up to the power supply in the home.

If you hire a professional, licensed and insured electrician, you will ensure that the job gets done correctly.
