Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  Can I use a wireless smoke detector in my home?

A: Depends on the fire prevention rules of the city or town you live. Currently Salem and Somerville do not allow them.

Q: Do I need to upgrade to a 200 Amp service?

A: No. Service is based on load calculations, square footage, electrical appliances, central air, heating system, etc. If you have gas appliances, 100 Amp service can be more than enough. Ask for your load calculations and go from there!

Q: I have flickering lights through my house, what does this mean?

A: Typically, it could be a bad neutral splice or a hot leg splice. Connections can start to break down in older homes that have electrical service connects to power from the street. This is not good and should be checked and fixed as soon as possible.

Q: What is an Arc-fault circuit breaker and dual function arc-fault/GFI circuit breaker?

A: Arc-fault circuit breaker interrupts current when an Arc is detected, tripping the circuit to prevent an electrical fire. An Arc produces heat causing that fire. Dual-Function arc-fault breaker detects current leakage to ground as well as arc-fault to prevent electrical fires. National Electrical Code 2014 requires all 120V lights and outlets to be arc-fault circuit breakers except in certain rooms.

Q: What is the 6′ GFI rule around kitchen sinks?

A: A new code change in the 2014 NEC requires any outlet within 6′ of your kitchen sink MUST be GFI protected.
