Your Residential Electrician

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.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

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.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

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.

Tips to Save Money and Maintain Your Home’s Electrical Systems

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.

Install-Surge-Protectors

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.

Examine Your Breaker Panel

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.

Test Your GFIs

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

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

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

Senior Hunter Tyson scored a team-high 20 points; Nick Honor tallied a career-high seven assists

CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson scored its most points since Nov. 6, 2018 (100 vs. The Citadel) in a 93-70 rout of Bryant on Monday night in Littlejohn Coliseum.

The Tigers (3-0) finished with 35 made field goals, tying a game-high under Head Coach Brad Brownell while at Clemson (since 2010-11 season). Clemson finished 56.5 percent from the field and 55.6 percent from three. The percentage from distance was Clemson’s best since shooting 59.1 percent in a 72-52 win over Pittsburgh on Feb. 12, 2020.

All five Tiger starters scored in double-figures and were led by Hunter Tyson (Monroe, N.C./Piedmont) who finished with a 20-piece on 8-of-13 shooting from the field. Tyson also finished with five boards. Nick Honor (Orlando, Fla./Lake Highland) netted a season-high 16 and dished out a career-best seven assists.

PJ Hall (Spartanburg, S.C./Dorman) continued his strong start to his sophomore season scoring 14 points (7-for-13 FG) and grabbed five rebounds to go along with a block and three assists. Both Al-Amir Dawes (Newark, N.J./The Patrick School) and David Collins (Youngstown, Ohio/First Love Christian Academy) totaled 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Despite jumping out to a quick lead, Bryant would be neck and neck with Clemson in the first half until a 11-2 run put the Tigers up by a dozen and they would lead by as many after the opening stanza.

Clemson would lead by as many as 26 points in the second half and would cruise to a 23-point victory and move to 3-0 on the season.

The Tigers finished the game with 20 assists and just seven turnovers. Clemson outscored Bryant in second-chance points 21-4.

Chase Hunter (Atlanta, Ga./Westlake), Ian Schieffelin (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) and Alex Hemenway (Newburgh, Ind./Castle) added 15 total points off the Tiger bench, including 11 rebounds.

Clemson returns to action on Thursday, Nov. 18 when it plays Temple in the opening round game of the Shriners Children’s Charleston Classic from TD Arena. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. on ESPN2.

Where: Cardinal Stadium, Louisville, Ky.

TV: ACC Network

Radio: 105.5 FM in the Clemson area (see all Clemson radio affiliates here)

Clemson has yet to lose a game to Louisville. They’re 6-0 there, dating back to 2014 when the Tigers won 23-17. The last meeting was in 2019 when Clemson won 45-10 in Kentucky.

Sunny. High near 55. Winds light and variable. Mainly clear skies at night. Around 50 at kickoff and mid-40s by the end of the game.

Clemson was able to avoid back-to-back losses for the third time this season after beating Florida State at home a week ago. Now sitting at five wins, the Tigers can earn bowl eligibility with a victory over Louisville this weekend. It’ll be the first time since 2014 where they’ll play in a non-College Football Playoff bowl game.

Clemson is a four-point favorite to beat Louisville.

ESPN’s Football Power Index gives the Tigers a 70.2% chance of winning the game.

Malik Cunningham, QB: A team’s offense should always run through the quarterback, and truer words couldn’t be said for the Cardinals. Malik Cunningham is essentially the team’s offense as the passing and rushing leader with 1,903 and 556 yards, respectively, for an average of 307.4 yards per outing.

Yasir Abdullah, LB: Considered somewhat of an underrated player coming into the season, Yasir Abdullah has carved out a space for himself on the Cardinals’ defense. He’s currently fourth in the ACC in quarterback sacks with six and has 34 total tackles, 10 for loss.

C.J Avery, LB: Opting to come back to Louisville, C.J. Avery is making the most of his fifth season. He leads the Cardinals in tackles with 53, four for loss, to go along with two quarterback sacks.

Xavier Thomas, DE: Despite not starting against Florida State, Thomas was still a factor in the game against the Seminoles, totaling four tackles, a quarterback sack and forced fumble. This week, he and the Tigers’ defense will be tasked with trying to stop another dual-threat quarterback in Malik Cunningham.

Joseph Ngata, WR: Having been out in COVID-19 protocol, Joseph Ngata returned to the field this past weekend against the Seminoles. He was the second-leading receiver with 52 yards on three catches and will look to continue building chemistry with quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei this week on the road.

Davis Allen, TE: After earning a starting spot four games into the season, Davis Allen has taken steps toward being a consistent pass catcher for Uiagalelei while also working on his blocking. Last weekend, he caught an 11-yard TD pass in the back corner of the end zone for the Tigers’ first score of the game.

CLEMSON -- Clemson’s running backs were dealing with friction and jealousy among themselves early in the season, freshman Will Shipley said Monday.

Shipley said the chemistry of the room is in a much better place now.

He wasn’t naming any names, but the Tigers have had two running backs leave the program during the season and another before it began.

Clemson had its best rushing day last week as he and sophomore Kobe Pace combined for 303 yards and four touchdowns in a 48-27 win against Wake Forest. The Tigers finish their regular season at 7:30 p.m. Saturday (SEC Network) at South Carolina.

“I think there was a lot of jealousy and just a bad makeup in our room earlier in the season,” Shipley said. “The happiness for one another that we have is just great. It’s great to know that someone can prosper and someone else is happy for them rather than kind of wish on his downfall.”

Chez Mellusi entered the transfer portal in April and announced in June he would sign with Wisconsin, where he ran for 815 yards and five touchdowns in nine games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Senior Lyn-J Dixon, the top returning rusher, went into the transfer portal in September with 10 carries in three games. Michel Dukes left the team in October with two carries in one game. Dukes is headed for South Florida. Dixon has apparently narrowed his destinations to Miami, West Virginia and Oklahoma State.

“We’ve lost a couple of soldiers,” Shipley said. “But I think what it’s done is make us so much closer as a group. We’ve had so much adversity with guys transferring out … It just made us so much stronger. When one guy goes down, another steps up. We can trust each other. I really trust every single guy in that room.

“.. I don’t even know if jealousy is the right word. I think it’s just tough when you have so many guys that are competitors, so many guys that love to compete. Not everyone is going to get their bite. We had five or six guys who could all produce. Not everyone was getting able to. I think some jealousy arose. Some emotions arose.”

If there was any friction between Dixon and the younger players at least, that seems to be healed. He re-posted on Twitter a graphic about the rushing day by Pace and Shipley and added: “Sky’s the limit for you boyz.”

Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott said it’s disappointing when players leave during a season.

“It’s a little bit more difficult to understand because you want to see young people persevere,” Elliott said. “At the end of the season, you have to weigh all the options and make a decision. I have no issue with that. But in season, for the young men, don’t allow yourself to create that mindset of not finishing something. That’s going to follow you wherever you go.

“The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. There are a lot of things they don’t know about the business of college football. … But we’ve created an opportunity for it. Some guys have taken advantage of it. And it’s a little bit hard to understand because there doesn’t have to be a ton of communication in that process. That’s the frustrating thing. You want to be able to talk to guys, but they have the ability to go to compliance and say, ‘Hey, I want to be in the portal.’ “

Shipley said first-year running backs coach C.J. Spiller, a former Clemson and NFL star who is in the College Football Hall of Fame, handled the early season friction well.

“I’m sure he’s seen greater pressures in his life than handling a running back room with some emotion and jealousy,” Shipley said. “He handled it greatly. He’s great at having relationships and communicating with his players. Just as the manager and leader of the room, he handled it greatly. I don’t think anybody could have handled it better than he did.”

The South Carolina football team will wrap up its 2021 regular season this weekend with its annual instate rivalry against the Clemson Tigers. It will be the first matchup between the two schools since 2019 as last year’s matchup was cancelled due to COVID. Clemson has won six straight in the series dating back to 2014, a streak the Gamecocks are hoping to end on Saturday.

South Carolina football: Gamecocks vs. Clemson Tigers odds and prediction for college football week 13 matchup.

Both of these teams enter the game playing their best football. After starting slow, the Gamecocks have finally found an offense to notch wins over Florida and Auburn over the last three weeks.

The Tigers have won four straight, posting at least 30 points in each of those matchups to get to 8-3 on the season. Both defensive units have put together solid performances thus far.

Clemson holds a 67-40-4 overall advantage in the series including having won the last six. The Gamecocks won the five matchups prior to the Tigers’ recent streak and are hoping to get back in the win column this weekend.

South Carolina football vs. Clemson Tigers odds week 13.

The latest WynnBET odds list the Gamecocks as being an 11.5-point underdog to their archrival. Clemson is listed as the favorite with -500 odds to win while South Carolina holds +375 money line odds. The over/under is set at 43.5.

One trend to keep track of is home and away performance. The Gamecocks are 5-1 in Williams-Brice Stadium this year, covering in four of those wins. That includes winning outright as home ‘dogs against Florida and Auburn in their last two tries. Clemson is just 2-3 away from home with a 1-4 mark against the spread.

South Carolina football vs. Clemson Tigers prediction week 13.

South Carolina has to feel good about their chances considering the down year for the Tigers but this is still a talented Clemson team. The defense is stout and will give Jason Brown issues. He has to avoid the big turnovers in order to keep the Gamecocks in it.

Where Clemson has been struggling is on offense. Even in this latest winning streak, the Tigers have been inconsistent. Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei is not living up to his five-star potential and the Clemson offensive unit is paying the price.

The backfields appear to be the strengths of both offenses. Will Shipley and Kobe Pace both went over 100 yards on the ground last week in Clemson’s win over Wake Forest. ZaQuandre White has totaled 100 yards from scrimmage in three straight contests while Kevin Harris is rushing for more than 75 yards a game in that same time frame.

The Gamecocks have struggled to contain opposing rushers in each of the last two games. Shoring up that defensive front seven will be key.

In what could be a low scoring affair, we’ll take the Gamecocks to cover the spread in a close loss at home.

Bowl projections take shape for South Carolina, Clemson ahead of rivalry game

South Carolina football clinched bowl eligibility with a 21-17 win over Auburn this weekend, joining in-state rival Clemson Tigers once again on 2021 bowl prediction lists.

After falling out of many projections following their Week 11 loss at Missouri, the Gamecocks are there to stay with a 6-5 record heading into this week’s Palmetto Bowl vs. Clemson. The Tigers enter Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday night as a double-digit favorite this week with an 8-3 record.

The Gamecocks are predicted to stay in the South for their bowl games, with projections ranging from Birmingham to Memphis or Charlotte. Several Clemson projections place the Tigers in the Gator Bowl, while others predict they could go as far as San Diego for the Holiday Bowl.

South Carolina’s last bowl appearance came after the 2018 season, when the Gamecocks suffered a 28-0 shutout loss to Virginia in the Belk Bowl at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. South Carolina ended that season with a 7-6 record in Will Muschamp’s third season.

This season will be the first since 2015 that Clemson hasn’t made it into the College Football Playoff, breaking its six-year CFP streak. The Tigers fell to Ohio State 49-28 in last season’s Sugar Bowl semifinal. Clemson has clinched a bowl berth every season since 2005.

Final decisions and bowl invitations won’t be made until Sunday, Dec. 5.

Here’s a list of South Carolina and Clemson’s bowl projections through Week 12 of the college football season.
