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.

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.

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 Greenville 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 Greenville.

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 Greenville, 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

If you didn’t already know, November is National Aviation Month, which celebrates America’s contributions + achievements in aviation. It’s easy to think about the future as you travel in and out of Greenville, but do you ever take a moment to think about Greenville’s aviation past?

Both of our airports — GreenvilleSpartanburg International Airport (GSP) + Greenville Downtown Airport (GMU) — have rich histories, but GMU has a particularly unique moment in history that happened this month, 90 years ago.

On the weekend of Nov. 13, 1931, the Amelia Earhart made a stop in Greenville at the Greenville Municipal Airport during her transcontinental tour to promote the Beechnut gum in a Beechnut-branded autogiro — an aircraft that looked like a helicopter-airplane hybrid.

Thankfully, the Greenville News meticulously documented the entire visit — one that was no walk in Falls Park, as the aviatrix had quite the packed schedule.

Friday, Nov. 13, 1931

4:40 p.m. | Amelia arrives from Spartanburg into Greenville and is greeted by 4,000 people along with Mayor A.C. Mann, the chairman of the airport commission, members of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, and “a bevy of girl scouts.”

She is also interviewed by the Greenville Women’s College journalism class.

7:30 p.m. | After being escorted into town by two motorcycle officers + six cars, Amelia attends Ladies Night as their guest of honor, hosted by the Junior Chamber of Commerce at the Poinsett Hotel.

Saturday, Nov. 14, 1931

12:30 p.m. | Amelia speaks at a public luncheon to nearly 150 people at the Poinsett Hotel.

2:30 p.m. | Amelia presents and demos her autogiro aircraft for nearly 10,000 spectators in Anderson, SC.

Sunday, Nov. 15, 1931

Early morning | Amelia departs Greenville for her next stop: Columbia, SC.

So, what did Amelia and her flight crew think about our city?

“You certainly have an air-minded city” and that the crowd waiting to greet her was, ‘one of the largest crowds we have had out to greet Miss Earhart.” — William A. O’Brien, Amelia’s mechanic.

And what about our own Greenvillians of the aviatrix?

“I was impressed by the perfect pronunciation of Miss Amelia Earhart in her address…” “She’s a good speaker.”— Dr. J.A. Barnhardt, an attendee of the Junior Chamber of Commerce’s Ladies Night

“These young journalists fully realized that they were interviewing one of the greatest women of this modern age.” — Greenville Women’s College journalism class

Black Friday shopping in Greenville: What to know about hours, COVID precautions

Attention, shoppers! 'Tis the season for catching sales and scouting deals through the holiday season.

Some retailers like Target, Walmart, Best Buy and Belk will trickle prices with in-store and online sales both on the Black Friday and the Cyber Monday after Thanksgiving.

But the availability of some items and the number of special deals could be more limited than in years past because of supply-chain issues, and there could be shipping delays.

Nationwide there is a shortage of 80,000 truck drivers, and that's complicating other factors that are at work, according to the American Trucking Associations.

“There has been tremendous pressure on the driver pool,” said American Trucking Associations' Chief Economist Bob Costello. “Increased demand for freight, pandemic-related challenges from early retirements, closed driving schools and DMVs, and other pressures are really pushing up demand for drivers and subsequently the shortage.”

Hurt in several ways by COVID-19 since early last year, some retailers have expressed excitement about the prospects of a holiday season where more shoppers are more willing to venture out.

Major retailers in the Upstate recommend but are not requiring facemasks for customers, though some stores and restaurants require them of their employees.

Haywood Mall

Greenville's Haywood Mall will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and will open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 26. Then, Monday through Thursday, Haywood Mall will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday noon to 7 p.m. for the remainder of the year.

While the majority of the stores within the mall choose to open in response to customer demand, some store hours may vary. Store hours can be found online at simon.com/mall/haywood-mall.

Select stores might impose limits of how many customers can be inside at once to reduce COVID risk.

Bath & Body Works, Belk, Dillard's and Haywood Mall, itself, will follow local and state guidelines where masks are recommended indoors but not required, according to Brandi Crowe, Haywood Mall's area director of marketing and business development.

Crowe said it's too early to project sales for the season, but she said recent activity has produced optimism.

The Shops at Greenridge

The Shops at Greenridge, located at 1125 Woodruff Road, will kick off the holiday season with an Elf on the Shelf-themed holiday event from 5 p.m., to 9 p.m. on Dec. 7. Activities like photos with Santa, craft stations, a hot chocolate bar, live music and balloon artists will be available.

The Shops at Greenridge will accept shelf-stable food donations during the event to support Loaves and Fishes' work to eliminate food insecurity in Greenville County.

Hours vary by store. Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, Marshall's and Ulta Beauty are among stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. For more information about hours for shops at Greenridge, visit shopgreenridge.com/directory/.

Stores will follow local and state guidelines where masks are recommended indoors but not required.

Target

Both Greenville-area Target locations, at 1112 Woodruff Road and 6025 Wade Hampton Boulevard in the Greer and Taylors area, will be closed on Thanksgiving Day again this year, with both stores reopening at 7 a.m. on Black Friday.

Beginning Dec. 5, the local stores, like most Target locations, will open from 7 a.m. to midnight each day through Dec. 23, giving guests more time to shop.

Face coverings are recommended both for customers and employees. An employee at store entrances is charged with cleaning and disinfecting carts and baskets between each use, according to Target.

Walmart

Walmart's Greenville-area locations — on Woodruff Road, White Horse Road, Pelham Road, Grandview Drive in Simpsonville, and Wade Hampton Boulevard both in Taylors and in Greer — will be closed Thanksgiving Day.

The stores are to have extended delivery hours until 10 p.m. the day before and then after Thanksgiving to make shopping easier, officials said. Customers will be allowed to place orders up to 6 p.m. for same-day or next-day deliveries, and delivery of oversized items from select stores is possible in some cases.

Walmart and Sam's Club associates are required to wear face coverings while working indoors.

An enhanced cleaning routine of disinfecting carts after use and keeping plastic shields up at checkouts are to continue, according to Walmart.

Best Buy

Best Buy on Woodruff Road will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and will open on Black Friday at 5 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. Then, Monday through Friday, stores will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m., to 9 pm., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Face coverings are recommended for customers and employees.

The store will limit the number of customers inside to reduce traffic levels to comply with recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

One-on-one consultation by appointments are available for customers who want to be paired with a Best Buy team member to assist with shopping needs. To make an appointment, visit bestbuy.com/services/triage/shopping or call 864-329-1291.

Contactless drive-up and in-store pickup are available.

Fully vaccinated customers are welcome to shop with or without masks. Kohl's recommends that non-vaccinated customers and associates wear masks inside the store.

Enhanced cleaning is among the stores' COVID precautions, according to Kohl's.

Academy Sports + Outdoors

Academy Sports + Outdoors in Greenville and Easley will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and open on Nov. 26 at 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Then it will be open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

It’s totally normal to want a picture-perfect family Christmas. But holiday shopping, decorating, cooking + gift wrapping — all while trying to prep your home for overnight house guests (and plan what to do with them while you do all those aforementioned chores) — can make any family’s holiday resemble a scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

Before you decide to skip town and vacation elsewhere (re: Vince Vaughn + Reese Witherspoon in Four Christmases) we suggest checking out this list of pre-planned holiday festivities happening around town, plus top local hotel stays so you can get some silent nights at home.

Festivity: Light up the night at a tree-lighting ceremony

If you have lingering Thanksgiving guests still in town (hi, Grandma!), head to one of the 4 local tree lightings around the Upstate Dec. 2-4. Welcome the holiday season with hot chocolate, cookies + holiday tunes before counting down to the moment the tree is lit.

Festivity: Skate away in a winter wonderland

If you have little ones in town, this is a great way to make memories. The United Community Bank Ice on Main is open, complete with hot chocolate, coffee + treats. Pro tip: Buy your tix ahead of time — prices are $10 per adult, $8 for kids ages 4-12 + include skate rental.

Festivity: Experience a night at the theatre

Our city takes tremendous pride in showcasing local talent + playing host to a large number of superb touring troupes every year. Take your pick of several holiday theatre performances happening all month long, from Elf: The Musical, to Annie + even COVID: The Musical.

Festivity: Catch a holiday parade

Take your pick of several parades happening Dec. 4-12 and watch as floats, marching bands, dancers, and, of course, Santa Claus (always the featured guest) celebrate a classic, festive tradition.

Festivity: Explore Festival of Trees festivities

Take the fam on a decor tour at the free 36th annual Bon Secours Festival of Trees. The spectacularly decked-out trees will line the entranceways at the Hyatt Regency Greenville, Courtyard by Marriott Greenville Downtown + Embassy Suites by Hilton Greenville Downtown RiverPlace.

Just minutes from the Greenville Spartanburg Airport and ~20 minutes to downtown, your guests can schedule a massage or other service at the Greenville Marriott’s Grand Day spa. .

If a Christmas morning round of golf sounds like the best gift ever, here’s where you’ll want to book your stay. Channel your inner Dustin Johnson at the Preserve at Verdae, a championship golf course located right next to the resort. There’s an on-site restaurant with an outdoor bar + fire pit for some true chestnuts-roasting-on-an-open-fire vibes.

Just off I-385, Hilton Greenville is a ~10 minute drive to downtown + walkable to business, shopping, dining, and entertainment

Wake up Christmas morning in your suite and enjoy your coffee on a balcony overlooking the downtown skyline or your premium room package of assorted treats + bevs. Sizzling USDA Prime steaks + award-winning wines are on the menu at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, while the rooftop restaurant and bar, UP on the Roof, offers hand-crafted cocktails, local cuisine, and spectacular views. Relax with a dip in the saltwater swimming pool — the only indoor pool in downtown.
