Breaker…Breaker 19.

Maybe you are a truck driver on the roads of The Great Southwest and you recognize that call immediately.  This breaker refers to any breaker box in your Belen area home that must be working properly.  We probably don’t need to remind you that adding a new circuit can be a daunting and even dangerous job!

Here are just some of the component parts of your home’s breaker box –

1.  The main lugs…they are always live even when the power is off.
2.  The main plugs…the black ones are always live as well.
3.  The main breaker…always switch it off before removing the panel cover.
4.  The breaker itself…usually a red or black hot wire.
5.  The breaker bus…(stay off the bus).  This distributes power to the individual breakers.

We won’t bore you with more details, except to say that the breaker box that distributes power to your home must be kept in tip-top condition.  For that, you should call on the services of Daylight Electric and Appliance serving the electrical needs of Belen and the greater Albuquerque area.  Just call (505) 864-3980.

How often Should your Water Heater be Inspected?

You may want to think that your home’s water heater is okay if it’s out of site, out of mind, but the truth is conscientious homeowners in Central New Mexico know that a professional should inspect it every year.  As with so many things, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and preventing major plumbing disasters on your property is well worth it!

Here are some of the things that occur in an inspection –

1.  The possibility of running toilets that costs big money with increased water bills
2.  Water pressure should be checked
3.  Water and drain lines should be thoroughly inspected
4.  Washing machines, dishwashers, and other appliances are also inspected

Various other steps will be taken in a full inspection.  The result is that you will know if you have a strong, viable water heater for another year.  Fall is a great time to have your water heater inspected.  Please call Daylight Electric and Appliance.  They have been serving Belen and the greater Albuquerque area for many years.  That number is (505) 864-3980.
