We Keep Clemson Shining Bright

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.

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.

Because, at the end of the day, a little knowledge can go a long way when it comes to your family's safety.

 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

Four Tigers Garner Conference Honors

CLEMSON, S.C. — Four members of the Clemson men’s soccer team have been recognized for their efforts this season with conference recognitions, the ACC announced on Wednesday.

CLEMSON, S.C. — Four members of the Clemson men’s soccer team have been recognized for their efforts this season with conference recognitions, the ACC announced on Wednesday. Forward Ousmane Sylla (First Team), defender Hamady Diop (Second Team) and forward Mohamed Seye (Third Team) were all named to an All-ACC Team, while goalkeeper Joseph Andema was selected to the All-ACC Freshman Team.

This marks the fourth consecutive season that Clemson has had at least three players named to an all-conference team, and the fifth consecutive year that the Tigers have been represented in the first team. Clemson’s three selections is tied for fifth most of the 12 ACC teams.

The full list of conference award winners can be found HERE.

Ousmane Sylla | Junior | Forward | First Team

Sylla has been the Tigers offensive fulcrum all season, leading the team in both goals and points. He has been exceptionally creative in the final third to score five goals and tally six assists, giving him 16 points on the campaign. He has notched 1.07 points per match, good for sixth most in the ACC. He is also tied for the team-lead in assists and fourth in the ACC in that category. This is Sylla’s second appearance on an All-ACC team, having earned second team recognition in 2021.

Hamady Diop | Junior | Defender | Second Team

Diop has been a defensive stalwart for Clemson, appearing in 11 games and starting 10 at center back. His stellar defense has helped the Tigers to four of their eight shutouts on the season, and he has contributed a goal on a penalty kick that turned out to be game-winner against NC State. This is the Senegal native’s second appearance on the All-ACC second team, in as many years.

Mohamed Seye | Senior | Forward | Third Team

Seye has shined as Clemson’s No. 9 this season, coming off a torn ACL in 2021 to play perhaps the best soccer of his already impressive career at Clemson. He is tied with Sylla for the team-lead in assists, and is second on the team in goals with four. He is the only Tiger to have started in each game this season. This is his first time landing on an All-ACC team, despite having racked up 20 goals and 51 points in his four seasons at Clemson.

Joseph Andema | Freshman | Goalkeeper | Freshman

Andema has taken over as the Tigers starting keeper, and has quickly become a key part in the team’s defensive success. In 13 matches, he’s earned seven clean sheets and has stopped 36 of the 44 shots he’s faced. That gives him a .818 save percentage, 14th best in the nation and third-best in the ACC. Andema began his freshman campaign on an extremely impressive streak, facing 16 shots over 501 minutes before allowing his first goal. He has recorded the second-most clean sheets of any freshman keeper in the nation.

The Tigers will be in action on Wednesday night in the ACC semifinal match against Wake Forest. The match will begin at Spry Stadium in Winston Salem, N.C. at 7 p.m., and it will be televised on ACC Network.

The Cardinals are seeking to extend a four-game win streak, while Clemson hopes to bounce back from its first loss of the season.

Favorite: Clemson is currently favored by 7 points.

Series History: Louisville has never won in the series. Clemson is 7-0 all-time against UofL, including a 3-0 mark at home.

Notebook: A few notables from the team's game notes.

* During its current four-game win streak, Louisville has become a dominant team in the second half. During that span, the Cards have out-scored the opposition 97-17 in the second half and 59-10 in the third quarter. Louisville has held a 45-0 advantage in the third quarter of the last two games.

* Clemson is attempting to clinch the ACC Atlantic Division outright. The Tigers are already guaranteed to represent the division in the ACC Championship Game by virtue of holding head-to-head tiebreakers in the event of identical conference records.

* The Cardinals are +14 in the turnover battle over the last six games, turning it over seven times, but creating 21 over that span.

* Clemson entering the game averaging 40.6 points per game against Louisville in seven all-time meetings, Clemson’s highest all-time scoring average against an opponent presently in a Power Five conference.

Quote: UofL head coach Scott Satterfield on facing Clemson defense

"Defensively, they’re still outstanding on the strength of their team up front on defensive line, two deep. They’re all really good players, high draft pick players. Their linebackers, #22 (Trenton Simpson) is an outstanding player. Last year, he was playing on the outside, this year he’s moved on the inside. He can really run, he’s strong. And then they have two linebackers who are sophomores. Younger kids that are really good as well. They can play."

D.J. Uiagalelei benched in Clemson win, remains starter

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney made a change at quarterback that helped spark a 27-21 come-from-behind win against Syracuse, but afterward, he insisted D.J. Uiagalelei remains Clemson's starting ...

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney made a change at quarterback that helped spark a 27-21 come-from-behind win against Syracuse, but afterward, he insisted D.J. Uiagalelei remains Clemson's starting QB.

Down 21-10 midway through the third quarter, Uiagalelei threw his second interception of the day -- his third turnover overall -- but Syracuse was unable to turn it into points. On the Tigers' ensuing drive, Swinney turned to true freshman Cade Klubnik in hopes of igniting Clemson's struggling offense.

"DJ's our starter. DJ's our leader. Ain't nothing changed there. He just had one of them days," Swinney said. "He missed a few plays, but he's earned [being the starter]. He's got to clean up a few things he did today, but he will."

Klubnik threw just two passes on the drive -- completing one for 18 yards -- but a personal foul on Syracuse linebacker Marlowe Wax for hitting Klubnik as he scampered out of bounds on a third-and-25 play extended the drive, and Phil Mafah punched in a 1-yard score.

Klubnik remained in the game, and Clemson scored on two of its next three drives -- a 50-yard Will Shipley run and a 44-yard field goal -- to complete the comeback, though the postgame theme was clearly the headline that there is no controversy moving forward.

"Absolutely not. A thousand percent not. DJ is [the starter], no question about it, Coach addressed the rest of the team about it," offensive coordinator Brandon Streeter said. "I'm just glad we've got guys who can go in there and the team not skip a beat."

For the game, Klubnik was 2-of-4 passing for 19 yards to go with 15 yards rushing.

"Really proud of Cade, to throw him in that situation and being ready. He gave us a little spark," Swinney said. "We settled down and took a little better care of the ball and found a way to battle back."

After an impressive scoring drive to close out Clemson's win over Georgia Tech in the opener, Klubnik is just 5-of-13 passing in limited action.

"He's our guy. DJ's going to lead us, and we're all right behind him," Klubnik said.

Uiagalelei struggled badly last season, but Swinney spent the entire offseason defending his QB, insisting he was Clemson's starter. Uiagalelei responded with a strong start to the 2022 season, and he had just two interceptions (with 17 TD passes) entering Saturday's game, leading Swinney to routinely criticize fans and media who had speculated about a QB change.

"Everybody had their prognostications on when [Uiagalelei] wouldn't be the starter anymore," Swinney said just days before benching the QB. "People love to do that type of stuff. It's embarrassing, really. But that's the world we live in."

After the win over the Orange, Uiagalelei told reporters he concurred with the decision.

"If I was in his spot, I'd do the same thing," he said. "You've got to be able to get a spark. When your quarterback's not playing good, then you've got to be able to make a change like that. For me, stats aren't everything. My No. 1 stat is to get the W."

Clemson moved to 8-0 with the win over Syracuse and all but wrapped up the ACC Atlantic Division. The Tigers have an off week upcoming before heading to Notre Dame on Nov. 5.
