Monsoon Season & Electrical Outages

Monsoon Season & Electrical Outages

Arizona’s monsoon season is here! This season can range from June 16th – September 13th with large storms usually starting mid-July.   During Monsoon Season you can almost guarantee a power outage, whether it’s from lighting or a dust storm.   Here are some tips from www.monsoonsafety.org and SRP® to help get you through a storm and back on track.  Electricity from lightning can travel through the wires in your home and damage important home office equipment. If you experience a complete or partial power outage during a monsoon, take the following steps

  1. During a storm it is best to turn off and even unplug all major appliances, including your computer, TV, phones, and other media equipment. This will help restore power more quickly while protecting your equipment from voltage fluctuations and circuit overloads when power returns.

  2. Turn off the A/C and all lights except one to indicate when the power has been restored. When power is restored, wait a few minutes before turning on lights and appliances — turn them on one at a time.

  3. Make sure your office equipment is properly grounded. Power disturbances can affect computers and other microprocessor-based equipment that depend on a constant voltage supply. An improper ground can cause your equipment to malfunction or fail.

  4. Reset circuit breakers to see if the problem is a short-circuit in your home’s electrical system. If other homes in your neighborhood are dark, the problem is likely a power outage. Check for “blown” fuses or make sure your circuit breakers are in the “on” position. Also check the main breaker; turn off and then turn on to reset the main breaker.

If you find yourself uncomfortable with step 4 and/or are unsure of what to do in any electrical situation always CALL A PROFESSIONAL.  

Innovative Lighting & Electric is offering special pricing for electrical issues due to storms until the end of September!

Bathroom Lighting Matters

Bathroom Lighting Matters

Lighting is a fundamental element in any room, however, lighting in the bathroom can be particularly important when starting each day; whether you’re trying to differentiate colors for makeup application or have enough light to shave your face.  With that said, you’ll need to decide on task lighting around the vanity.  Recessed cans are not a good idea, because they cast shadows on the face.  Beautiful sconces on the sides of your mirror or lights at the top of the mirror would work well. Overhead fixtures are good for overall bathroom lighting and you can get creative with modern pendants or mini chandeliers! With so many choices for fixtures you don’t have to sacrifice style for practicality.  Innovative Lighting & Electric specializes in helping you find the right fixture(s) for your budget.

Bonus tips:  Makes sure your bulbs are giving off a crisp white light and not a yellowish glow.  Large mirrors help reflect light so your bathroom appears brighter.
