Now that it is getting warm we will be turning on our ac units.If you have small 110v window units it would be good idea to put them on there own cicuit,the reason for this is that one window unit can draw between 10 and 15 amps.If you have annthing else plugged into that circuit it could tripp the breaker.Some people think you should just add a bigger breaker,but this is a bad idea becuse the wire is rated to the breaker size,Go over and there is a greater chnce of fire.The solution to the problem is putting each ac on its own circuit.If you have a 220 unit it is more than likely on its own circuit.If you are getting a slow tripp on a 220 it could be a weak breaker.It is best to let an ac tech or electrician look at it to determine your problem.THanks for looking at my blog and if you have any questions ,give me a call john 361 433-6039.Check out our web site www.serviceelectric.us for great deals on fans and lighting.

Hot Tubs

Now that it is starting to get warm some of us may be buying a new hot tub.They are great for relaxing with friends and family .I would like to go over a few safety tips before you jump in .First make sure you hire a qualified electrician to hook up your tub.A hot tub needs to be on a gfi breaker it is most often a 50 amp breker.GFI stands for ground fault interupt if there is a short where water is involed it should trip.All exposed wires should be in conduit .I recommend running the wires in pvc scheudle 80 and flex pvc.I try to hide the conduit under the slap so it does not become a tripping hazard.So remember to call your electrician before you set your pool,this will help him with his installation.Look for a good pool installation to run between 500 and 800 dollars depending on the size of the pool and where it is located.Have a great and safe day and remember if you have any questions give me a call John 361 433-6039.Thanks,Please look at my past post for other helpful tips.
