GAS METER UPGRADE IN BETHESDA, MD

Our company offers an installation of natural gas powered generators that use a sizeable amount of gas volume when they are operating, so it’s necessary to have a gas meter with enough volume to operate the generator and the other gas appliances in the house. If yours doesn’t then it might be time for a gas meter upgrade in Bethesda, MD.

The gas meter typically has a plate on the front that lists its capacity in cubic feet/hour. One cubic foot per hour of gas volume equals approximately 1,000 BTUs. Total up the number of BTUs on the existing gas appliances and add to it the gas usage of the desired generator unit and thus the required meter capacity can be determined.

Four Kinds of Lighting Needed in Your Home – Part 1

The rooms and outdoors areas of your home can serve several purposes. They can be settings for relaxation, working, socializing, and eating. The lighting configuration should meet the needs of users at each specific location.


Many of us think that only one light source will cover everything we will need. However, experts advise that there are actually four kinds of lighting that will be needed for each home. They are Ambient Indoor, Ambient Outdoor, Accent, and Task.


Rely on an experienced and licensed electrician for lighting projects in your home to get the best results and ensure safety.



Ambient Indoor


Ambient or general lighting is meant to provide lighting for the whole room. This type of illumination is intended to be uniform lighting that will cover the entire space. In addition, it is independent of other kinds of lighting sources.


The chief purpose of ambient indoor lighting is to make sure people can move safely and easily throughout a space. It accomplishes this by providing overall illumination. Ambient light also reflects from walls, increasing its range and effectiveness in corner areas and behind large pieces of furniture.


Below are fixtures that are capable of providing ambient indoor lighting in a home:




  • Ceiling-mounted fixtures

  • Chandeliers

  • Floor lamps

  • LED down lights and/or traditional recessed fixtures

  • Table lamps

  • Track lighting

  • Wall-mounted fixtures


Ambient Outdoor



  • Typically installed to help ensure areas are visible and safe, ambient outdoor lighting also enhances security around a home. Experts highly recommend illuminating the exterior areas of a house, especially entrances and stairways, to decrease the risk of injury to residents and visitors.

  • Below are fixtures that are capable of providing ambient outdoor lighting in the exterior areas of a home:

  • Canopy and garage lights

  • Hanging fixtures

  • Post lanterns

  • Spotlights


Part 2 will discuss Accent and Task lighting for your home.

Why Home Dedicated Circuits are Important

A dedicated circuit is equipped with its own circuit breaker in the electrical box because it has a specific purpose. It is meant to be used by only one appliance, making it “dedicated”. No other appliance will use its outlet or the electricity from this circuit. A dedicated circuit makes sure that a large appliance that consumes a great amount of electricity will be provided adequate access to the power it requires, preventing an overloaded system, which would result in a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Important Reasons for Grounding Your Home – Part 2

While providing numerous benefits for our everyday lives, electricity is still one of the world’s most dangerous elements. One way to mitigate the risks is making sure that your home’s electrical systems are grounded. Part 1 covered the five most important reasons for grounding. Part 2 will cover the workings of home electrical grounding and safety tips.

Important Reasons for Grounding Your Home – Part 1

Within every electrical circuit an active wire provides power and a neutral wire that returns the electrical current. A grounding wire can be connected to electrical devices and outlets with another wire attached securely to the ground at the electrical panel. This grounding wire provides an alternative pathway for electrical current to safely return to the ground without endangering people should a short circuit occur. If there’s a short circuit, current would flow through the ground wire and blow a fuse or trip a circuit breaker. Either is better than an electrical shock causing injury or death.



The Five Most Important Reasons for Grounding


1) Electrical Overload Protection


Grounding electrical current helps protect a home, residents, and appliances inside from electrical surges. Lightning strikes and power surges can generate hazardous high voltages of electricity. When an electrical system is grounded, excess electrical current will travel into the earth, as opposed to burning out everything attached to an electrical system.



2) Assists Directing Electricity


A grounded electrical system makes it easy for power to be directly sent to all the locations where it is needed. Grounding enables electrical current to travel with safety and efficiency through the entire electrical system.



3) Voltage Level Stabilization


Grounding also eases the distribution of the proper amount of electricity to be distributed to the correct locations, playing an important part in ensuring circuits do not overload.



4) Earth is a Great Conductor


Grounding helps ensure safety due to the fact that earth is a great conductor. When an electrical system is grounded, excess current will invariably take the path of least resistance to the ground, rather than into people, perhaps saving lives.



5) Prevention of Harmful Electricity


A home lacking a properly grounded electrical system is a place where appliances risk being irreparably damaged by excess current. A power overload is also capable of causing an electrical fire that may result in data loss, property damage, bodily injury or death.


Part 2 will cover the workings of home electrical grounding and safety tips.
