Reduce Electricity Consumption

Modern life is packed with conveniences that require a steady supply of electricity.  As comfort seekers, Americans demand optimal levels of light, heat, cooling and entertainment.  Once the electric bill arrives, pain in the household budget requires significant adjustments to daily habits to realize savings.

  • Update appliances – HVAC equipment has been upgraded with each new model since furnaces and air conditioners were invented.  Older appliances that are responsible for heating and cooling the living space will consume much more electricity.  Refrigerators and freezers use less energy than ever before.  The homeowner is wise to maintain full food storage areas to enhance efficiency.
  • Look for hidden consumers – Computers, stereo equipment and LED televisions will draw power whenever the plug is in the outlet.  Surge protectors should be turned off when these power consumers are not in use.  Unplug all appliances when not in use.
  • Insulate against the elements – Heat and cold outside should be prevented from entering the house around pipes, windows and doors.  Efforts to caulk and insulate can improve living comfort while reducing the amount of electricity required to maintain a consistent indoor temperature.

Does Your Home Electrical System Require an Upgrade?

Switches that trigger the proper response can lull the homeowner into a sense of false security.  Aging electrical systems can pose significant risks as larger demands are placed on each circuit.  New appliances and electronics are larger, yet more efficient.  Older homes require specialized care when accessing electrical power through older outlets and switches.

In certain instances, updating the entire system is the prudent approach for safety.  Signs that your home needs an electrical system update might include:

  • Minor load increases cause breakers to trip or fuses to blow
  • Fingers sense the presence of electricity when an appliance is touched
  • Dimming lights when appliances are running
  • Flickering lights as electrical equipment switches on
  • Consistent burning smell in the same location
  • Discoloration on the outlet plates
  • Outlets that are two-pronged
  • Circuits do not have GFCI, or ground fault circuit interrupters

Homes that were built in the middle of the 20th century might have aluminum wiring throughout the entire house.  This is considered a significant safety hazard that will require attention.  Aluminum wiring can cause house fires.

If you have concerns about the wiring in your home in Conejo Valley, Westlake Village,  or Thousand Oaks contact Fornoff Electric for more information, today!

Motion Sensor Lights Improve Home Security

Did you know that motion sensor lights are one of the easiest ways to improve home safety? Home intruders typically rely on stealth and darkness to break into homes. Once a criminal has triggered a motion sensor light, they will often feel exposed and immediately leave the premises.

Motion sensor lights should be installed in the places where they are most needed. Entrances to homes (both front and back), in front of garages, and the perimeter of your home, including ground windows are the prime installation areas. The majority of motion activated lighting options come with Passive Infrared (PIR) motion sensors. These sensors actively detect the infrared energy that emanates from our bodies. With the installation of motion sensor lights you can rest easy knowing that the PIR technology will detect any movement, before the intruder can make his way inside.

To find out more about how motion safety lighting can improve home safety, simply contact Fornoff Electric today. Fornoff Electric fulfills all electrical needs for residents in Westlake Village, Conejo Valley, and the Thousand Oaks areas. The Fornoff Electric team specializes in all lighting installations, including motion sensors for additional home safety.
