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.

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 Greenville.

 Smart Home Installation Greenville, 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 Greenville, 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 Greenville, SC, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Greenville, 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.

Electrical Services Greenville, SC

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

GREENVILLE, S.C. —

A downtown Greenville restaurant will permanently close its doors this weekend after decades in business, according to the owner.

Addy Sully, owner of Addy’s Dutch Café and Restaurant at 17 E. Coffee St., posted "the sad news" to Facebook Tuesday.

"We'll be open for a limited time this week for those who would like to come by one last time," Sully said.

Greenville Business Journal said Sully, an Amsterdam native, left a successful career as head of research and development of a textile firm to launch Addys with business partner Nina Biagiotti in 1990.

Tuesday's post blamed the closing on medical issues suffered recently by Sully and Biagiotti, but mostly on an extended legal battle with the landlord of the restaurant property.

According to Sully, he had planned to reopen the restaurant in 2020, but what he called "a major roof leak" happened a week before.

The leak, combined with the COVID-19 pandemic, kept the restaurant closed and led to a court battle with the landlord.

"Finally, our trial came up last month," Sully said. "We were astonished and devastated that we lost," he said.

Sully said they were given 30 days to remove everything from the premises, so he's giving faithful customers a chance to come to the restaurant and take a "token" before the final closing.

"We'll be open for a limited time this week for those who would like to come by one last time, select a token or a fine imported beer to take home, in exchange for a donation to help us with our considerable legal fees," he said.

Addy's will be open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, with opening times to be announced on the Facebook page.

"Located on Coffee Street, Addy's was one of the first dinner-time restaurants to set up operations in downtown during the early stages of the area's revitalization in the 1980s.

"The restaurant is known for its world-traveling fare, its cozy European atmosphere, and its gregarious host Mr. Sulley."

GREENVILLE, S.C. —

A community of beer brewers came together to honor someone they say helped bring craft beer to the Upstate.

Tom Davis is one of the founders of Thomas Creek Brewery and was recently diagnosed with stage IV ampullary cancer.

Now with Davis in hospice care, friends and former students decided to share their stories of their mentor over a pint.

"He's been a phenomenal inspiration for all of us in the Upstate," employee and friend Don Richardson.

Davis and his father Bill got into the beer business in 1994 and opened Thomas Creek Brewery in 1998. That’s where Tom’s legacy began.

"He's molded so many great brewers out of this facility. It's an amazing thing what he has done," Richardson said.

"It's a baker's dozen out there just here in the upstate that have come through here and have been firsthand right underneath tom and worked here for several years and have gone on to start their own breweries or work for somebody else in the industry," former employee and head brewer at Swamp Rabbit Brewery, Andrew Myers said.

Opening his doors to anyone who wanted to learn the art of beer.

"I'm tired of being in it. I'm tired of being in a cubicle. Can I just come and chase a dream and work at a brewery and he's like sure come on in," former brewer and head brewer at Liability Brewing Company, Jared Tuttle said.

They said anyone who knows beer in South Carolina knows Tom.

"He's won medals at the great American Beer Festival, which should tell everyone he's as good as anybody in the country," Friend and Owner of Swamp Rabbit Brewery Ben Pierson, "Hardest working man in show business, bar none."

Tom was diagnosed with stage IV ampullary cancer back in October. It's a tumor that has spread to the small intestine and other organs.

"It's unfair, but we love him and we're here for him and the whole family," Tuttle said.

Now those who had the privilege of knowing or learning underneath him poured one out as they work to keep his legacy alive.

"Thomas creek has been like a beacon. Almost like a lighthouse for a lot of breweries and a lot of craft beer drinkers in South Carolina," Myers said.

"He has kind of molded the Greenville craft beer community and we're so very grateful for him for doing that," Richardson said.

"He has created a legacy and I'm proud of what he has done and it hurts that he can't keep it going," Tom's father, Bill Davis said.

The brewers are putting together a charity to brew Thomas Creek's red ale. Any brewery in South Carolina can participate and the proceeds from the breweries can go toward the Davis family. They are calling the beer legacy. That fundraiser can be found here. You can also support the Davis family here.

How the Upstate real estate development company is building for tomorrow

“We’re probably the quietest big company in Greenville,” says Zach Romano, director of strategy and investments for RealtyLink. “We were founded right here in the Upstate by locals in 1998 and have since developed over 600 projects across the country.”

If you’ve seen the state-of-the-art Top Golf rising above interstate near Pelham road, you’ve seen their work. The real estate development company has built its brand on a diverse portfolio — from grocery-anchored shopping centers and power retail centers to single tenant build-to-suit, multifamily, industrial, self-storage and mixed-use properties.

“When it comes to taking care of business, our founders have always done things the old-fashioned way: treating clients well and organically growing the business through relationships and repeat customers,” says Romano.

Greenville may be headquarters, but the company has regional offices all across the Eastern U.S., where the team gleans direct knowledge of each individual market and secures deals.

“We’re ground-up developers,” says Romano. “Typically, we’ll acquire the land, bring in the tenants and the right contractors and collaborate with the right capital partners — like Fifth Third Bank — to do it all. We’re very full-service, from front to back end.”

The company is in a unique growth phase, expanding across four divisions, including residential and retail.

“We’re adding hundreds of millions of dollars a year in terms of development assets,” says Romano, “and joining hand-in-hand with private high-net-worth investors and institutional capital, as well as our bankers, to ensure we’re well-capitalized. A lot of that growth will directly benefit the Upstate, as well as Charleston, even down to Savannah.”

Amidst all of that growth, company culture remains the foundation that RealtyLink is centered on.

“We’re big on family culture here,” says Romano. “And that plays into a lot the business that we take on. [It also informs] how we take care of our resources, meaning both our assets and our people — our biggest resource is our team members. Culturally, that is super important for us and something that we focus on in our every day operations.”

GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Tuesday night’s Greenville County election finalized the future of the county council. Four new leaders are stepping in to replace longterm leaders who have served for decades.

County council will definitely look different. Regardless of party lines—all four of the newly elected candidates have already found common ground on a few things.

“I think Greenville County spoke, I think Greenville County wants to see some change,” said Councilman-elect Joey Russo.

That change is in store. Four new leaders are stepping in.

Four long term council members are out. Councilwoman Xanthene Norris has served five terms since 1997. She decided this term would be her last. Making room for Alan Mitchell who’s putting housing and infrastructure at the forefront.

“A lot of the housing that’s being built in Greenville now is priced at $400,000, $500,000 up to a million dollars, and an average person just can’t afford that,” said District 23 Councilman-elect Alan Mitchell.

Current councilmen Joe Dill, Lynn Ballard and Chairman Willis Meadows have served decades on council. They all lost re-election bids and their replacements are new to the world of politics.

At just 30 years old, Joey Russo will join as the youngest leader on council.

“I want to show that our next generation is buying into what’s going on in this community and working for solutions,” said Russo, the District 17 councilman-elect.

District 26 councilman-elect Rick Bradley says he’s heard the concerns and he’s more than ready to get to work.

“I don’t work for the developers or the builders or the rest of Greenville County, my intention is on district 26″ he said.

District 19 councilman-elect Benton Blount says he’s putting the people first.

“The council doesn’t have enough eyeballs on it, in my opinion. I think we should be held accountable by the public. So I want to make sure that everything we vote on it’s very accessible to the public” said Blount.

So, what will the new council look like?

With Norris’ exit, Liz Seman will be the only woman. And as Meadow’s leaves, they’ll have to elect a new chairman. Concern over growth, infrastructure and transparency all seem to be common ground among the four. They also seem to want more harmony.

“We don’t need to be openly arguing about our issues,” said Mitchell.

“I think with the new members along with the motivation from the other council persons who I’ve talked to, seem excited to show the community that we’re actually there for them and to serve them,” said Blount.

The current council will stay in place as is until the end of the year, in early January the new councilman will take their seats. Each member serves four year terms.
