Panel Breaker is Tripped

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 Clemson to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

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.

Kitchen Breaker Keeps Tripping

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 Clemson.

 Smart Home Installation Clemson, SC

Install Surge Protectors

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.

 Electrical Repairs Clemson, SC

Examine Your Breaker Panel

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 Clemson, SC, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Clemson, SC

Test Your GFIs

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.

Replace Outdated Light Bulbs

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.

Schedule a Home Safety Inspection

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:

  • Breakers
  • Fans
  • Exposed Wiring
  • Electrical Panels
  • Circuits
  • Switches
  • Outlets and More

CLEMSON, S.C. – Five Clemson softball players earned All-ACC honors, as announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Wednesday, including four players being repeat honorees from 2021. Valerie Cagle, McKenzie Clark, Alia Logoleo and Millie Thompson each earned their second All-ACC honor as Aby Vieira was a first-time selection.

Redshirt sophomore Cagle (Yorktown, Va.) was the lone Tigers to be named to the First Team as an at-large selection after batting .311 during the regular season with 50 hits, including nine doubles and 11 home runs. She has scored 31 runs and brought in 39 while maintaining a .584 slugging percentage and .371 on-base percentage. In the circle, Cagle has maintained a 1.83 ERA with 14 wins and six solo shutouts. She has pitched 134 innings and struck out 160 batters while picking up three saves. Cagle is the first Tiger to earn back-to-back first team honors for the softball program.

Clark (Myakka City, Fla.) was the only Second Team selection for Clemson after batting .321 through 51 games. She tallied 50 hits, including 11 home runs, and leads the Tigers with a .622 slugging percentage and 37 runs scored. She holds a perfect fielding percentage in centerfield with 43 putouts and four assists. In 24 ACC games, the sophomore leads the team with a .356 average with 26 hits, nine home runs, 19 RBIs and 19 runs scored. She holds a .808 slugging percentage after tallying three home runs in a single game at FSU.

Logoleo and Thompson both earned Third-Team All-ACC honors. Logoleo (Nashville, Tenn.) is batting .271 on the year with 11 home runs, 25 runs scored and 38 RBIs. The redshirt sophomore tallied eight RBIs after going 3-for-4 with two home runs, including a grand slam, against North Carolina.

Thompson (Bedford, Va.) holds a 1.68 ERA in the circle for the Tigers with 12 wins through 22 appearances. The sophomore began the year with a combined no-hitter in her first appearances of the year and earned a solo no-hitter in a midweek against Furman. Thompson has pitched 96 innings with 97 strikeouts. She ranks 12th in the NCAA and first in the ACC in strikeout to walk ratio (6.93), as well as 19th in the NCAA and first in the ACC for walks allowed per seven innings (1.02).

Vieira (Mission Viejo, Calif.) rounds out the Clemson honorees earning All-Freshman honors, her first ACC honors of her career. She leads the team with a .326 average through 35 games this season after clocking 28 hits, including four home runs. She has scored 10 runs while bringing in 13 and holds a .500 slugging percentage.

ACC in Serious Talks About Eliminating Divisions

CLEMSON, S.C. — There are lots of discussions going on this week as the Atlantic Coast Conference’s athletic administrators, football and basketball coaches come together for their annual spring meetings at Amelia Island in Fernandina Beach, Fla.

Name, image and likeness and the collectives surrounding it is a big part of the discussions, as is the transfer portal. Also on the docket, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel, is football scheduling and the elimination of divisions.

According to Thamel’s timeline on Twitter, the ACC could eliminate divisions as early as 2023. He reported the league discussed this issue last week on calls to set up this week’s meetings.

One model being discussed is still playing eight conference games, with three of those games being permanent opponents and the other five opponents rotating off the schedule every other year.

Also, there are talks of having two permanent opponents with six teams rotating on and off the schedule. The idea behind these two models will allow ACC schools to host every conference foe every four years, which in turn will bring more variety to every school’s conference schedule.

This comes on the heels of the NCAA Football Oversight Committee formerly recommending last month to the NCAA Division I Council that it adopt non-controversial legislation to remove the FBS requirements that must be met to annually exempt one conference championship contest.

This will provide discretion to each FBS conference to determine the method for identifying the participants in its conference championship game. In other words, Power Five conferences such as the ACC, Big Ten and SEC will no longer be required to have divisions in order to determine who plays in their conference championship games.

The Big Ten has discussed the likelihood of eliminating divisions as well.

This past February, ESPN’s Andrea Adelson reported ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips was “reimagining” football within the conference, which included eliminating divisions in college football.

The ACC got a feel for what a division-less league might look like in 2020, when Notre Dame was added for one year during the COVID season. The league was able to scrap its divisions that year and determined its championship participants based on the two squads that had the best record in the league.

The result was a top 5 match between No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 4 Clemson. The Tigers won the game, 34-10, capturing the program’s last of six straight ACC Championships.

Clemson football: Hate, heartbreak and Georgia Tech

Hate, Heartbreak and Georgia Tech.

Well, hello again, Tiger nation,

The last time we came together I regaled you with the tales of old that led me to root for the boys in the orange on Saturday. Now, I know the last decade of heartbreak has been comparatively less than say the 90’s? The early 00’s? The late 00’s? But as an elder millennial, true 90s kid Clemson football fan (including being part of the sellout crowd of the ’98 Clemson/South Carolina game with 3 combined wins between the 2 teams), my early Clemson years introduced me to a level of ire that I could not experience in any other part of life.

And that is what I wanted to touch on today:

Who was the first team or what was the first game you attended that broke your heart as a fan?

I’ll break it down like this: The first time I got my heart broken by a team and the first game I attended where I came away furious. Both of these moments are tethered together by a singular team, one that might even surprise some younger Clemson fans. The culprit?

Georgia? No.

North Carolina? If it’s basketball, maybe. But this is a sport with more than 5 players, so no.

South Carolina? As much as I hate them, still no.

Who is this team that led me to experience my first orange clad moment of anguish? Somewhere between my disgust for Tyler Hansbrough and my complete disdain of Beth Dutton from Yellowstone, you will find just how much I could not stand Georgia Tech in my youth. Yes, the same Georgia Tech that we have come to expect to roll over in the past decade was a team that somehow found the most inexplicable, incomprehensible, and unfathomable wins.

For a lot of people, Georgia Tech doesn’t make the list of teams to care about beating. After all, we have enough to deal with in our feathered brethren to the south, our Atlantic Division rival from Florida, and the actual successful team in Georgia.

But for me? I enjoy every point we put on Tech. In 2020, Clemson won 73-7, and to be honest, I wanted 80. Why? Let’s roll back the clocks to October 28th, 2000, and I’ll tell you.

It was the Saturday before Halloween and Clemson was 8-0. They were coming off a come from behind win with a backup quarterback and were a win away from a Gameday show down with Florida State the following week. All they needed to do was beat Georgia Tech. This team was different from years prior; gone was Joe Hamilton, the South Carolina native who made it a point to beat Clemson every time they played (and he surely did). In his stead? A much less dynamic George Godsey at the helm.

This was supposed to be my head start for a primo Halloween; I had a sick costume (I was heavy into Pokémon at the time) and we had the route ready to cash in on a ton of candy in a few days. That candy was soon the only thing I’d be looking forward to.

The thing is, Georgia Tech just never went away that game. Even with Woody Dantzler hurt, Willie Simmons had helped Clemson battle back, giving them the lead with about 90 seconds left. The defense had every opportunity to get just one stop. But with 13 seconds left, the aforementioned Godsey found Keith Watkins for a touchdown with 7 seconds remaining.

Complete devastation. I had never felt so furious in my life. That was the first time I had ever just gotten fuming mad over a game. Clemson had it, right in their grasp, and then Tech just took it. That was the maddest I ever was at a Clemson game…..until 4 years later. When I attended the Clemson game against (you guessed it) Georgia Tech.

That was a huge weekend for my middle school self. Going to games with my brothers and sitting in the student section was the absolute pinnacle of living for a 14 year old me.

I got to listen to music I had never heard before like Hillsong and Jamiroquai (I know they are 2 vastly different genres, but I still listen to that same Jamiroquai album to this day). I got introduced to this new fangled church called NewSpring and for the second time in a row in the student section, my brother almost got in a fight (it was awesome). The cherry on top? Getting to watch Clemson beat Georgia Tech.

And it seemed like it was going to happen after Kyle Browning took it to the house to make it 24-14 with just a few minutes left. Even after Tech scored to cut it to 24-21, Clemson could just run out the clock right?

Or just get off a punt, right?

Which team lands first on your hate and heartbreak list?

Instead, I got to witness the sequence of a muffed Cole Chason punt that was recovered in the Clemson redzone, followed by getting to watch Calvin Johnson make a name for himself. Again, I was devastated. I was furious on a level that I have only been a handful of times after (Ask my wife about the Pitt game in 2016).

And that’s not even mentioning all the times that Georgia Tech just found ways to win after. Believe me, I could spend a whole article on the debacle of going to my first road game in Atlanta in 2011.

So there you have it: the reason Tech lands on my yearly most wanted list where they share space with Clemson’s most hated rivals. So I ask you:

Which team or game broke your heart first as a Clemson fan?

I am staying in Clemson, moving into a new apartment and working at the Shepherd Hotel.

Favorite thing about Clemson LIFE

My favorite part of Clemson was meeting the football players and watching them play!
