1. Lightning and Surge Protection

Kansas is notorious for having unpredictable weather, especially when it comes to severe thunderstorms. It is important to keep in mind how easy it is for these storms to damage your technology including your TVs, computers, video game systems, and any other electronic device that you might have plugged into your house receptacles at the time of the storm. If COVID has you working from home, you rely on your technology more than ever. Keep your electrical equipment safe by having surge protection in place.

We offer safety inspections, code corrections, and free estimates depending on your needs.

2. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

When it comes to smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, you want to be proactive, not reactive. Just having them in the home isn’t enough. Did you know there are basic code requirements that must be met to make them as safe as possible? That’s right, if your home was built after 1976, your smoke alarm should be powered from your electrical panel, while still supplemented by individual battery power. Additionally, it is important that they are all interconnected so all alarms sound if one senses smoke. Along with efficient smoke alarms, it is important to utilize carbon monoxide detectors. Installation of these near water heaters and furnaces provides enhanced protection for you and your family. We all know how important smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are, let the experts at Young Electric make sure everything is up to code and installed properly, just in case the unthinkable happens. 

3. Emergency and Backup Generator Maintenance

With the uncertainty of Kansas weather, it’s best to have an emergency and extreme weather backup plan in place. Wichita has been no exception to ice or snowstorms, make sure your home has all the safety precautions you need in case of bad weather. Backup generators are a smart choice, especially for those who can’t risk losing power. When deciding on a generator, there are many things to keep in mind to make sure it fits your needs. Not only can our experts answer any questions, but they can guide you throughout the installation and maintenance process to make sure everything is ready to go in case your power goes out.
