Time For An Electrical Test?

By Springdale Electrician,

When is the last time you got your electrical installations checked?

When is the last time you got your electrical installations checked? Electrical work deteriorates with age and should undergo an electrical test on a regular basis. Inspections are recommended to check for overloaded circuits, shock or fire risks, find any defective work, and a number of other safety concerns.
To stay safe, have an electrician test every:

  • 10 years for a home
  • 5 years for a rental property
  • 3 years for an RV or mobile home
  • 1 year for a swimming pool
  • before selling a home/moving into a previously occupied home

Have a home or pool that needs an inspection? Call Mister Sparky and swim safely!

What To Do In An Electrocution Emergency

By Springdale Electrician,

Electrocution Emergency

What should you do in an electrocution emergency? Electrical shock can be frightening and is more common than you may think. Household outlets, light fixtures, and electric fences are just a few of the likely causes.

If someone you know gets shocked, contact 911 or other emergency number then check for these symptoms:

  • Cardiac arrest
  • Heart rhythm problems
  • Respiratory failure
  • Muscle pain and contractions
  • Burns
  • Seizures
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Unconsciousness

Follow these steps to ensure both their safety and your own:

  • Before touching them, make sure they are no longer in contact with the object that shocked them. It could pass the current to you.
  • Move the source away and/or turn it off if you can.
  • Check to see if they are able to breathe. If not, begin CPR if you know how.
  • To keep the victim from going into shock, lay them down with their legs elevated.

Keeping all of this in mind could save a life or prevent lasting injuries from an electric shock. Remember to stay safe and avoid possibly dangerous materials.

Electric Vehicles 101

By Springdale Electrician,

Electric Vehicles 101

If you haven’t yet looked into hybrid or electric cars, now is the time. With advances made everyday in the new technology, experts say there could be as many as 4.4 million electric vehicles on the road by 2020. Deciding which car is the best fit for you can be difficult. Here are three of the top green models available now and why they will appeal to you. And if you need a charging station installed -we are qualified to help you out!

1. 2012 Nissan Leaf

This new all-electric car has it all and boasts the most reasonable price of the new eco-friendly bunch. At only $26,684, this rechargeable vehicle can go 106 city and 92 highway miles. It features a nearly silent engine, but the savings in gas money are causing quite a noise in the industry.

2. 2013 Chevrolet Volt

The Volt is a bit pricey at $39,145 but it still has a lot to offer the eco conscious consumer. This hybrid can go up to 40 highway miles on one charge before switching over to its very efficient fuel engine. One tank can take this car up to 300 miles. The Volt offers some high tech options such as a video screen, but unfortunately has a small cabin that only seats 4.

3. 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid

This model is all about style. While still retaining the benefits of a hybrid car, the Fusion also has the look of a luxury vehicle. At $27,200 with an estimated 47 mpg, this car is definitely one to beat.
