Spring is Arriving at ARC Electric Company – Newsletter

march 18 2016

Sunday, March 20th is the first official day of Spring. I am not sure about you, but I am glad to see the cold and yucky weather leave! With this warmer weather, be sure to walk around the exterior of your house. It’s the best time to repair any of the damage winter has so generously left us with. Also, make sure you check your outlets for any discoloration. Discolored outlets mean something could be going on behind your walls. With our CurrentSAFE program we can help give you peace of mind over your homes electrical system. Have you ever considered installing a whole home surge protector inside your homes electrical panel? Typically we put surge protector strips on our tvs and computers, so why not protect our entire house? Did you know you can install outlets that have USB plugs built in? I recently upgraded some of my outlets to these and it is such a genius idea. Now I don’t have to rummage for my plug when needing to charge a device. Have you thought about switching to LED? Going green and switching over to LED could save you some money. Not only are the cost of LED bulbs and fixtures remarkably cheaper than in past years, but they can also save you money on your electric bill! Eaton’s Whole Home Surge Protector saves your home electronics from the damaging effects of electrical surges and are approved by Mike Holmes from HGTV. Protection at this location will reduce surges entering the home to an acceptable level for your homes electronics and appliances. Don’t let those bulky USB adapters, i.e the big box at the end of your iPhone charger, hog your outlet space. Plus, adapter free charging eliminates unsightly clutter – install these USB port outlets today! Since LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb there is a dramatic decrease in power costs. Switching to LED bulbs makes perfect sense – not only are they environmentally friendly, the life expectancy can be up to 10-12 years.
