Electricity - it's one of the most important innovations in the history of humankind. It's hard to imagine life without electricity, and for good reason. Nearly every aspect of our lives is affected by electricity in some form or fashion, from the way you wash your clothes to the effort you put in at work. From a residential standpoint, you need it to cook, clean, entertain, and live comfortably. For commercial purposes, electricity is used to power the computers needed to keep America moving.

With more than 60 years of combined experience as electricians, we are capable of troubleshooting and fixing a litany of electrical issues in your house. Keep reading to learn more about the most common electrical issues our customers report, along with some handy tips on how to remediate such problems.
If you don't have any power in your home, it might be time to check your electrical panel to see if there are any tripped breakers. If you spot a tripped breaker, try your best to switch it over to its original position. If you can't, remember that some breakers need to be flipped to the "off" position before turning it back on. If you don't have any luck, give our office a call. We'll send a trained residential electrician in Carrolton to your home to fix the problem on-site.
If you have an overhead fan in your living room or bedroom, you know how quickly it can accumulate dust. Most homeowners clean up using a rod duster. However, sometimes homeowners accidentally hit the fan direction switch when doing so. But, instead of flipping it "on" or "off," they bump it into a limbo zone where neither direction is selected. When this happens, your overhead fan will not spin. If one of your fans stops working suddenly, this is one of the most common reasons why. If you're sure you didn't hit the fan direction switch, it could be an indication of a larger problem. In this case, call our office for a free phone consultation. We'll troubleshoot with you over the phone and if necessary, send out an electrician.
If your home was built in the last 35 years, chances are it has two 20-amp circuits running to your kitchen countertop outlets. Newer homes will have three circuits. If you're constantly tripping the breaker to your kitchen, it's most likely because you have too many electrical devices connected to the same circuit. To help alleviate this problem, place appliances like coffee makers and toasters on two different circuits. That way, they can share the load.
At the end of the day, your home is your place of solitude and relaxation. But, when you have electrical issues in your home, things can quickly go from peaceful to problematic. Whether you're renovating your home and need a new room wired for power or your panel breaker keeps giving your problems, L&M Electric is here to assist. If you have questions about an issue or need to schedule service, our team is ready to help answer your questions and coordinate the best time for a residential electrician to come to your home in Carrolton.
Unlike some of our competitors, who are reluctant to provide any information that might prevent them from making a buck, L&M Electric is all about empowering our customers. If we can offer sound advice that will educate our clients and help them save money, we have no problem doing so. That's why we have put together some helpful tips and tricks for maintaining your home's most common electrical systems. Because, at the end of the day, a little knowledge can go a long way when it comes to your family's safety.
Intense lighting storms can cause powerful surges of electricity that ruin your home's electrical appliances and amenities. Surge protectors installed at your electrical panel can help prevent these surges by grounding the electricity running through your home. They do so by directing it away from your electrical devices. This common solution is inexpensive, effective, and always a better choice than replacing expensive items like TVs and computers.
Breaker panels control the power to your home. When they go bad or are damaged, there's a good chance that you will lose power to most of the rooms in your house. Open your breaker panel and keep a sharp eye out for signs of corrosion and rust. Double-check that each breaker you see flips on and off properly. If you notice corrosion or if the breaker switches won't flip, it's time to get in touch with a residential electrician in Carrolton, GA, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.
GFIs, or Ground Fault Interrupters, are similar to surge protectors in that they prevent electrical damage from happening in your home. The primary job of a GFI is to prevent electrical shocks that happen during a ground fault. Because water is a conductor of electricity, GFIs should be installed anywhere that an outlet comes into contact with water. You should try to test your GFIs every month, if possible, to ensure that they are working correctly. When you look closely at your GFI, you will notice a "test" and a "reset" button. Hit the "test" button to trip the GFI outlet and then hit "reset" to restore power. If your outlet resets, your GFI is working as it should. If not, you need to replace your GFI outlet. Because electricity is involved, we recommend hiring a professional to install new GFIs in your home. That way, you know the job is done right.
The right light bulb can add the perfect amount of ambiance to your home. Eventually, however, even the best light bulbs will need replacing. While they don't need checking every month, it's a good idea to inspect all your bulbs at the beginning of the year. If any of your bulbs are dead, you should replace them. You should also consider replacing bulbs that are incandescent with LED lights. LED light bulbs may cost more upfront but use less electricity and are more efficient over the long run.
In terms of preventative maintenance, scheduling a safety inspection for your home's electrical systems should be a high priority. These inspections will shine a light on the electrical features in your home that need to be fixed. Most modern electrical fires are caused by short circuit arcs, defective insulation, or broken wiring. An inspection conducted by a qualified electrician will help determine what needs to be fixed so you and your family stay safe in your home. Your inspector should cover your whole home and will examine common features such as:

It’s get down to the nitty gritty as five area teams still have basketball on their schedules Wednesday with one being the top-ranked team (Deerfield-Windsor’s Lady Knights) and two teams that will host the number one team in the class — Westover and Calhoun County. The Deerfield-Windsor Lady Knights, the Dougherty Trojans, the Westover Patriots, the Lee County Trojans, and the Calhoun County Cougars all still remain in their state playoff tournaments.
The top-ranked Deerfield-Windsor girls have won 20 consecutive games and are 25-1 on the year. The Lady Knights will face Lakeview Academy (17-12) from Gainesville, Ga. in Carrolton Wednesday at the University of West Georgia. Should the Lady Knights prevail, they will face one of their region opponents for the state championship Saturday at Mercer University in Macon. Tiftarea (18-5) will play Southland (23-4) in the other semi-final in Carrolton.
In Albany Wednesday night, the Dougherty Trojans (17-11) will host Frederick Douglass of Atlanta (15-13) on the Eastside at 6 p.m.
The Trojans have won 10 of their last 11 games after a slow start against some of the best teams in the state. Douglass is the number three team from Region 5 that includes top-ranked Sandy Creek and No. 4- ranked Cedar Grove.
“They are in a tough region and could have easily come out of that region as a number two seed,” said Dougherty head coach Bakari Bryant. “They are battle tested and it should be a good game. During this time of the year, the teams that are left are here for a reason,” the coach said. “May the best-performing team that night win.”
The Westover Patriots will play Wednesday at 6 p.m. also on the Westside of Albany as they host top-ranked McDonough (26-4). The Warhawks blew out Sonoraville 78-38 in the Sweet Sixteen. Westover eliminated McDonough in the final four last year, 42-39.
The Calhoun County Cougars (25-4), playing Class A Division II, will also play the state’s top-ranked team. The Cougars will travel to Atlanta to take on Greenforest Christian (19-7). Ranked number one with seven losses, the Greenforest team has lost to 7A and 6A schools but no Class A schools.
Greenforest has two 7-foot seniors and a 6’10” sophomore on the bench. Greenforest beat Dougherty by almost 30 points and has also beaten McDonough.
The No.7-ranked Lee County Trojans (26-3) will also have their hands full Wednesday night as they travel to Roswell to take on Blessed Trinity (23-6).
“They are a high IQ team,” said Lee County head coach Kirven Davis. “They have a dominant 6’9” player and the son of NBA player and Georgia Tech legend Matt Harpring. They are a solid team, a good three-point shooting team, and are very disciplined. It will be two contrasting styles of play.”
The 6’9” dominant player is Brigham Rogers who plays power forward. He has committed to play college basketball at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. The other play Davis mention is sophomore guard Ty Harpring. Harpring is a 6’2” shooting guard for the Titans. His father was the 15th pick in the NBA draft in 1998.

CARROLLTON, Ga. - Julian "JuJu" Lewis doesn’t look like most freshmen at a high school football practice."As a rising ninth grader he’s ahead of a lot of the guys that are in that same classification," Carrollton head coach Joey King told FOX 5 Sports.That's an understatement, if keeping tracking of the 19 and counting big-time Division I football scholarships Lewis has already been offered, from the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Texas, Penn State, Auburn, Florida and Oreg...
CARROLLTON, Ga. - Julian "JuJu" Lewis doesn’t look like most freshmen at a high school football practice.
"As a rising ninth grader he’s ahead of a lot of the guys that are in that same classification," Carrollton head coach Joey King told FOX 5 Sports.
That's an understatement, if keeping tracking of the 19 and counting big-time Division I football scholarships Lewis has already been offered, from the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Texas, Penn State, Auburn, Florida and Oregon, among others.
"I mean, of course I’m still 14," Lewis told FOX 5 Sports. "I still sit in my room and play video games when I get my free time. I hang out at the movie theater with my guys."
He said he’ll always remember the first day those calls started coming in – in the eighth grade.
"So second block, I get pulled out of class, and Florida's on the phone," Lewis recalled. "That was my first time really being on the phone (with a college coach), and they offered me. That was big. I was trying to go through the school day like keeping calm, not telling anybody in the school."
But that wasn't it.
"And then fifth block rolls around, and Penn State's calling me," Lewis continued. "So that was two in one day. Now I'm stressed out, trying to keep it calm the rest of the day. Then I go to practice, and I get tackled by my entire team."
Third time was the charm.
"Right after practice, Georgia Tech told me to call them, so it was a three-in-one-day type of thing, so I was a little flurried that night," he said.
Lewis received all this attention before even playing a high school snap. He will put on a varsity jersey for the first time as the Carrollton Trojans' starter this fall.
King said he feels confident Lewis is ready for that role because of how he's handled his recruitment at an extremely young age.
"Obviously from a recruiting standpoint he’s had a lot of attention on him and just kind of seeing him handle that, he’s fairly quiet until he really starts to open up and laugh and have a good time. But just the humbleness and the composure that he keeps," King said.
"Of course there’s a little bit of pressure just because of the town I’m in, but my teammates don’t treat me like I’m a freshman," Lewis said. "They treat me like one of the guys. Everybody’s been super welcoming."
King has been down this path with a high-profile mega-recruit before, as Trevor Lawrence's head coach at Cartersville High School.
He remembers sifting through fan and hate mail – even death threats – once Lawrence’s recruitment heated up.
He knows Lawrence would tell Lewis to soak up his high school years and to not get lost in the limelight.
"He's coming to realize how busy it’s about to get. We’ve had conversations, from a recruiting standpoint, that it only gets worse," King said. "Like it or not, it’s the way the world is. It’s our job as coaches to coach him to be the best person he can be and block out all that other mess."
"I know it’s going to come. I’ve been getting it since I was like 7, so I’m kind of used to it now," Lewis said. "It doesn’t really affect me. I don’t really look in the comment section, but when I do, you see two or three haters every once in a while, but those come with popularity and success, so I’m used to it."
Even at an age as young as 8 years old, Lewis has trained with High 5 stars who came before him, including Justin Fields, Deshaun Watson and Malik Willis.
Lewis said Fields is "my guy," and the now-Chicago Bear has shared some great advice. Lewis has also enjoyed time with these mentors outside of training, going go-karting and bowling together.
But none of it would be possible without support from his family, he said – especially his dad, T. Carlton Lewis, who he calls "my personal chauffer."
"My dad, he’ll tell me, ‘good job,’ but he’ll never be like, ‘you’re so good, you’re so good.’ He’ll critique me before he compliments me," Lewis said. "Him being that kind of guy to me is motivating me to become better."
The incoming freshman is also motivated to live up to the hype, leading a young Carrollton squad this season.
He's most looking forward to his very first game under those infamous Friday night lights.
"That first home game – that’s going to be something," Lewis said. "Man, you come to Carrollton on Friday nights and you win? Man, you’re not paying for food, you’re not paying for nothing. There’s so much love in this town. I love it out here."

Highlights: Raiders select G Dylan Parham
Shortly after Dylan Parham's NFL dreams came true, he was still processing it all as he began his first virtual media tour as a Raider.
The Carrollton, Georgia, native was surrounded by his friends and family in an Airbnb home he rented in Atlanta for his draft party when he was selected by the Silver and Black with the 90th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
While in the midst of celebrating the life accomplishment, Parham joined Raiders.com's Levi Edwards over Zoom to discuss his initial thoughts of Las Vegas and what he believes he can bring to the Raiders, as well as giving some of his favorite places to go when he played for the Memphis Tigers.
Dylan Parham: I would say my flexibility. Being able to go out there and help that team, whether it needs to be at the guard position for that game or I need to slide in for a center. I want to be able to play at a high level at any of those positions. I feel like I already do a great job at that, me showing I can play at right guard and right tackle the past two seasons. Just being able to play those two positions at a high level and then showcasing myself at the center position at the Senior Bowl. I've been able to show a lot of different things and I feel like that's one of the things they really value about myself. So I'm just going to make sure I continue to work center really heavy and work guard and be able to play both at a high level so I can come in and compete and help this team.
DP: Truly, I don't have an ideal image of Vegas. Of course, I'm ready to learn and explore, and that's what I'm most excited for, I'm about to go venture out into a new area. When I was training for the draft in California, I said, 'This is a new area for me,' so being able to do the exact same thing and being able to continue to play football amongst a group of some really great guys, it's going to be a great experience.
DP: Truthfully, I'm a really big Papa John's person. I like the stuffed crust. When they first introduced that, it was something I was really big on. I used to go there every other week. [Memphis] has a nice fried rice place called Tokyo Grill. And there's a taco truck – it's the best tacos I ever had in my entire life, it's called TACOnganas. Shout out to them, because they do a really great job. I was introduced to them right in the middle of COVID. And of course, Memphis is known for its barbecue, so I would have to say my top spot for barbecue is Corky's. Their BBQ nachos are amazing. 10/10, would recommend. Memphis is a really big wing place too.
This Dylan Parham transformation is CRAZY!Came into Memphis as a TE/DE and gained 60 pounds due to his coaches suggestion that he’d prosper at guard. pic.twitter.com/jl79KHgnt2— Levi Edwards (@theleviedwards) April 30, 2022
DP: 10-15 piece BBQ Lemon Pepper wet with seasoned fries. If they got the peach drink or the lemonade, I'll get that. That's when I'm in Atlanta though. If I'm in Memphis, they do the whole wings and I'll get a 7-piece Honey Gold BBQ with seasoned fries and lemonade.
LE: With that being asked, give me your rundown on your personal Mount Rushmore of Atlanta-based rappers.
DP: I would say Tip. All-time?
DP: Then probably Future, Young Thug and I got to say Lil Baby. I know he hasn't been in the game for awhile, but Baby been coming with it, man. He's hard.

DP: They've been here every step of the way. I joke about it but from the first time, when I didn't even know how to put my shoulder pads and my thigh pads on, they were always there helping me and keeping my head on straight and pushing me. I never knew what football could be for me and they always wanted me to be involved in everything, 100 percent. Whether it was football, basketball or track, they always wanted me to try everything. And once I continued to push, they just stood beside me and they helped me with school, and when it came down to make that decision, they've been by my side. They've always been there for me, and not even just in football, but in life. I appreciate everything they've done for me and we've finally made it to a really good spot. Now, it's time to just get ready to rock 'n roll.
