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.

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 Irmo 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 Irmo.

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

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Irmo, 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 Irmo, 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

A local 'Garden of Eden': Community garden opening soon in Irmo neighborhood

IRMO, Sc. (WACH) --- Just in time for the start of summer, a community garden is about to open its gates.

The Town of Irmo has spent several summers working on this project.

It all started with a community push for the garden.

They sent their idea all the way to the Mayor's office.

"One of the committees came to me and said 'Hey, we want to have a community garden,' and I said okay great," said Mayor Barry Walker.

Then, they found Ed Brogdon.

His business designs gardens for communities.

"The gardens that I design, then even up to today, is somewhat to mimic what the Garden of Eden might have looked like, where you had a fairly balanced ecosystem," explained Brogdon.

The garden designed for the Friarsgate neighborhood is called the Green Iceberg.

You see the garden above the surface, but the act of gardening shows what's hidden underneath.

"Discovering about what's happening, what's needed. How do you become a part of that? How does it benefit your lifestyle and quality of life? Everything is involved in that," explained Brogdon.

The community raised $30,000 to build the garden and the town set aside the land.

All the wood needed to build the beds was said to cost $20,000 alone.

"You get people in the neighborhood involved, believing and hoping, having faith that their involvement in building this garden would actually transit into them having a deeper appreciation for it, because it was something that they built," added Brogdon.

The garden is being put together by members of the community.

Mr. Brogdon wanted to showcase the efforts of two individuals in particular: Mario Batista of Irmo and Frank Gilbert from the Heyward Career and Technology Center.

Every garden bed is built from scratch and designed for every kind of gardener.

"We have small beds for children for the kids to plant herbs and stuff like that. We have raised beds for seniors. Then we have educational benches over there with a focal point in the middle which is where we're going to do actual classes," said Mayor Walker.

While each bed might look different, the lesson learned will be the same.

"How to grow sustainable food in your own backyard or in the community garden, learning how to do it, and then take that to your own backyard," added Mayor Walker.

All of the beds will be up for rent. You're allowed to plant whatever you want and it's yours to harvest.

After nearly two years of work, the garden is nearly ready.

"I'm just happy it's a reality now," said Mayor Walker.

On Saturday, June 25th, the town will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the fruits of their labor.

That starts at 9 a.m.

The community garden marks the first part of a larger park at 1113 Friarsgate Blvd.

Next up will be a skate park and two dog parks.

A Clemson player’s parent appeared to call out South Carolina via social media on Thursday.

South Carolina hosted a 7-on-7 event at the Gamecocks’ indoor practice facility Thursday, and Clemson freshman wide receiver Antonio Williams was among some former Dutch Fork High School (Irmo, S.C.) players that were in attendance to watch the Dutch Fork team compete.

However, Williams was kicked out of the facility, according to his stepfather, former Dutch Fork and Ole Miss basketball star Murphy Holloway.

Holloway wrote on Twitter in response to a tweet from Lou Bezjak of The State regarding the 7-on-7 event, “They kicked my son out of the facility today when he was watching DF play. It’s all love tho”.

They kicked my son out of the facility today when he was watching DF play. It’s all love tho

— Murphy Holloway (@Murphys_Law31) June 23, 2022

Williams’ mother, Courtney Holloway, later chimed in with the following tweet which included the comment, “See y’all in November,” when the Tigers and Gamecocks will play at Death Valley on Nov. 26.

When the hate stops working, they start telling lies.

Seeing a lot of false statements that I won’t address from Twitter accounts with ZERO CREDIBILITY.

As always, be blessed! #AllIn

See y’all in November

Go Tigers and a huge #HMFT today!

— Courtney Holloway (@c_williams31) June 23, 2022

A top-100 player nationally by multiple outlets coming out of Dutch Fork, Williams had 137 catches for 2,458 yards and 23 touchdowns during his high school career.

Williams, a summer enrollee at Clemson, committed to the Tigers over South Carolina and schools such as Auburn, Ole Miss, Georgia, Florida State and Notre Dame, among others, last December.

Congratulations! You did it! You graduated! Now is the time to preserve your diploma in a custom frame. Here at Clemson Variety & Frame, we build all our frames in-house – from the frame to the mats and etchings to the installation – to guarantee the quality. You worked hard for your degree. Trust us to show your diploma in the best light possible.

Irmo contractor celebrates opening of new headquarters

A year shy of its 20th anniversary, Pyramid Contracting is celebrating a new home for its business.

Company executives joined state representatives and city officials to cut the ribbon on Pyramid’s new corporate headquarters at 951 Western Lane in Irmo on Wednesday. Pyramid crews completely renovated the former Sea Ray Boats facility just off Interstate 26 as the company relocated from its former Irmo office on Lykes Lane.

“I’m most proud that our employees put their hands on and self-performed so much of the work in this building,” Bobby Alexander, Pyramid president, told SC Biz News after cutting the bright blue ribbon to a round of applause. “We’re very proud of it.”

Alexander founded the company in April 2003 with one location and nine employees. Now, Pyramid has six locations in three states and employs 50.

The contractor, which specializes in commercial, federal and defense construction, was the 2018 South Carolina 8(a) Construction Firm of the Year. Alexander credits joining that Small Business Administration program, which provides training and technical assistance to firms owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, in 2015 with helping spur his company’s growth.

COO Dave Stewart, who joined Pyramid in 2016, said the company’s quality control processes, including monthly project audits, and “top of the top” staff also propel its success.

“There’s other good construction companies, but we want to be thought of first when it’s ‘Who do we want to talk to about our project?’ ” he said. “That cannot be done without talented people … We try to put together an A team on everybody’s building.”

Irmo Mayor Barry Walker joined Rep. Nathan Ballentine, Rep. Chip Huggins and representatives from the Irmo and Columbia chambers of commerce in presenting Pyramid with commemorative certificates and plaques before the ribbon cutting.

The six-month renovation of the building fitted the exterior with a modern wood finish and the opened interior with glass walls and hallways lined with photos of company projects. Pyramid’s portfolio includes the 10,000-square-foot City of Columbia Parks and Recreation Center, constructed in 2011; the 2008 turnkey development and construction of the 14,300-square foot Cedarcrest Shopping Center in Lexington; the 2017 renovation of 5,200 square feet at Columbia Craft Brewing Co.; and the restoration of the Fort Jackson Combat Museum in 2016.

“This is our corporate office and our home office,” Alexander said, watching as people filed into his company’s new building. “I think that it speaks to the quality of construction that we can deliver.”

Sometimes rankings and ratings adjustments in the recruiting media industry will cause players to drop. Sometimes those adjustments send those players in reverse.

For South Carolina’s Class of 2022, it ended up being the latter.

With the addition of a fourth network (On3) to the 247Sports Composite rankings, four of the Gamecocks’ high school signees in the 2022 class crossed the threshold into four-star range. Defensive back Anthony Rose (Miami, Fla./Central) and linebacker Donovan Westmoreland (Griffin, Ga.) are now four star prospects. Both have already enrolled at Carolina and went through spring practice (they both had impressive moments during that period, too). Also, All-American wide receiver Landon Samson (Southlake, Texas/Southlake Carroll) and speedy defensive back Emory Floyd (Powder Springs, Ga./Hillgrove) crossed into the low four-star range.

That quartet joins quarterback Tanner Bailey (Gordo, Ala.), defensive back Keenan Nelson Jr. (Philadelphia, Pa./St. Joseph’s) and linebacker Stone Blanton (Madison, Miss./Madison-Ridgeland Academy) in the four-star range. That means seven of the 22 high school signees for the 2022 class are ranked four stars or higher by 247Sports Composite (31.8 percent).

Granted, that’s not some magical threshold at this point. There are also four other prospects ranked above 0.8800 numerically in the 247Sports Composite (the highest three-star range). Quarterback Braden Davis (Middletown, Del.) and offensive tackle Ryan Brubaker (Denver, Pa./Cocalico) both spent time as composite four-star prospects during the cycle. Safety Peyton Williams (Rockwell, Texas/Heath) and athlete Nick Emmanwori (Irmo, S.C.) both earned four star ratings from one of the major recruiting media outlets as well.

South Carolina’s overall team recruiting ranking (transfers and high school/JUCO prospects) is No. 24 nationally. The high school/JUCO “recruit” team ranking is No. 25. The Gamecocks inked the country’s eighth-ranked transfer portal class in the 2022 cycle.

CASTING A WIDE NET

Carolina also signed a far-reaching class geographically in 2022 as nine different states are represented. Georgia (5), South Carolina (5), Florida (4), Pennsylvania (2), Texas (2), Alabama, Delaware, Mississippi, North Carolina (1) all are represented.

Add in the nine from the transfer portal and it gets even more diverse as 12 states are represented. The final tallies are: Georgia (6), South Carolina (5), Florida (4), Texas (3), North Carolina (3), Mississippi (2), Pennsylvania (2) and Michigan, Alabama, Arizona, Delaware and Tennessee with one each.

During the three recruiting cycles Carolina has had under head coach Shane Beamer, the Gamecocks have landed pledges/signed players from 17 different states plus the District of Columbia. Beamer and staff got their first scholarship commit from a California native on Friday when Snow (Utah) Community College offensive tackle Isaiah Jatta, who played high school football at Helix High in San Diego, pledged to the Gamecocks as part of the 2023 class.

South Carolina will host 12 official visitors from five different states (plus D.C.) this coming weekend. It is by far one of the bigger official visit weekends in recent history for the Gamecocks program.
