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 Roswell 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 Roswell.

 Smart Home Installation Roswell, GA

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

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 Roswell, GA, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Roswell, GA

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

Georgia DOT: Major I-285 lane closure a go for Saturday

After more than a year of delays, the Georgia Department of Transportation will close lanes for construction on the top end of the Perimeter beginning Saturday, the agency has confirmed.

GDOT will close one eastbound lane of I-285 between Roswell Road and Ashford Dunwoody Road on Saturday. As soon as a week later, it will close one westbound lane along the same stretch of highway. The closures are expected to last at least eight months.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported earlier this week that the first closure could come as soon as this weekend. On Wednesday, GDOT spokesperson Natalie Dale confirmed the closure will take place as planned.

The closures come as construction of the new I-285 interchange at Ga. 400 enters its final phase. GDOT has been rebuilding the interchange for five years, and work is expected to continue until the second half of 2023.

In addition to the new interchange, the $800 million project includes a system of new collector-distributor lanes along both highways, a new diverging diamond interchange at Abernathy Road and a new bridge at Mount Vernon Highway. It also includes new I-285 bridges over Glenridge Drive, Ga. 400 and Peachtree Dunwoody Road.

The construction of the three I-285 bridges will require GDOT to close lanes. The agency has pledged to keep at least three lanes open in each direction during the day, though Dale said fewer lanes could be open late at night.

The work is expected to cause major traffic headaches for the hundreds of thousands of people who travel daily through the interchange. GDOT recommends motorists avoid the area if possible. But Dale said the interchange accommodates so many people traveling to so many destinations that it’s impossible to recommend any particular alternative routes.

“There’s no one right answer,” she said. “You’ve got 250,000 people coming from a different place and going to a different place.”

Instead, GDOT advises motorists to work from home if they can, take MARTA if they’re able or use navigational apps to find the best route. If they must travel through the construction zone, GDOT advises motorists to give themselves plenty of extra time — a trip could take an hour longer than usual on a bad day.

GDOT originally planned to close the lanes last year, but it decided to wait until more of the interchange project was complete to allow new lanes to accommodate more traffic.

I-285 lane closures: How to cope

Lane closures on I-285 are expected to cause major traffic problems in the months ahead. The Georgia Department of Transportation advises motorists to consider:

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution will report news updates and provide additional helpful information on this project. For updates, follow reporter David Wickert on Twitter @dwickert. For traffic information, follow @ajcwsbtraffic.

Local organizations launch ‘Roswell Teen Talk’ to address mental health

ROSWELL, Ga. — Roswell Rotary and Wellstar North Fulton are partnering to increase access to behavioral health resources and prevent suicide among youth.“Roswell Teen Talk,” a five-episode limited series podcast, launched Oct. 11, featuring peer-to-peer content and stories with resources, tips and experiences intended to help listeners determine when and how to seek help for themselves, a friend or a loved one.While the experiences shared come straight from a diverse group of Roswell High School and Fellowship...

ROSWELL, Ga. — Roswell Rotary and Wellstar North Fulton are partnering to increase access to behavioral health resources and prevent suicide among youth.

“Roswell Teen Talk,” a five-episode limited series podcast, launched Oct. 11, featuring peer-to-peer content and stories with resources, tips and experiences intended to help listeners determine when and how to seek help for themselves, a friend or a loved one.

While the experiences shared come straight from a diverse group of Roswell High School and Fellowship Christian students, they are guided by Wellstar Health System experts to ensure the resources shared are accurate, relevant and actionable.

The first episode is titled, “Don’t Say ‘Yes’ to the Stress: Stressors, Coping Mechanisms and Mental Health.” In the episode, Roswell teens talk about how stress impacts them and share practical tips on how to cope with the effects. The Roswell teens participating in the podcast were chosen by fellow Rotarians and represent all grade levels.

They include band members, cheerleaders and football players, which Roswell Rotary Club past President Becky Stone said was important to let others know they’re not alone and it’s OK to seek help.

“You never know whose story could make a difference in someone else’s life,” Stone said.

Typically, Roswell Rotary divides the funds raised from its annual golf and tennis tournament among 30 charities. This year, Stone said they decided to focus on a Community Impact Project with the hopes of making a “big difference.” Roswell Rotary and Wellstar North Fulton then met with different parties, including a social worker from Roswell High School, to brainstorm ideas.

From there, they decided to invest $57,000 toward the launch of “Roswell Teen Talk” through a partnership with the Wellstar Foundation. Dr. Ryan Breshears, chief behavioral health officer at Wellstar Health System, will serve as a guide. He said the emergency rooms in local hospitals treat youth every single day for a wide range of behavioral health crises.

“It is so important to find ways to assist teens, their parents and loved ones through difficult times and direct them to resources before they end up in the emergency department,” Breshears said.

According to Wellstar, nearly 4 million people in Georgia are living with a behavioral health condition, and the last few years of the pandemic have only exacerbated the severity of the problem and the need for enhanced, accessible behavioral health resources.

This is especially true for youth, many of whom have or know a friend or loved one who has faced behavioral health issues. Wellstar states youth ages 11-17 are more likely than any other age group to exhibit moderate to severe symptoms of anxiety and depression.

With 1,451 deaths by suicide in Georgia in 2019, prior to the impact of the pandemic, and suicide as the second leading cause of death in the state for individuals 10 to 34, there is an urgent need to expand education, support and access to behavioral health care in local communities, according to Wellstar.

Roswell Rotary Club immediate Past President Terry Taylor said he hopes the podcast format will help reduce barriers and stigmas related to behavioral health.

“This critical information is available privately, and it’s accessible right in your phone or laptop,” Taylor said. “Teens, teachers, friends and parents can listen on their own to start getting the help they need even before they ask for it.”

All five episodes of “Roswell Teen Talk” are available now and are streaming for free on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or at roswellteentalk.podbean.com. In addition to listening to the podcast, if you or someone you know needs help, the new 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline is available. For help, call or text 988 or visit 988lifeline.org.

She's a firecracker on the court, a vocal leader, and a guard that can score at three levels. Her energy on the hardwood and love for this game is something we can't wait to have at William & Mary.

ROSWELL, GEORGIA – Five minutes into Friday night’s first-round match-up between Roswell and Lanier, it was the Longhorns who came out swinging first.

They took an early 3-0 lead and looked well on their way to giving the heavily-favored Hornets a run for their money in the first round of the Class AAAAAA state playoffs.

The Longhorns’ momentum quickly vanished, however and the Hornets regained control and steamrolled their way to a dominant 55-8 win to advance to the second round.

Roswell will host Allatoona in the second round next Friday.

Georgia High School Football Playoff Brackets

Hornets quarterback KJ Smith passed for 189 yards, tossed three touchdowns threw the air, and rushed for another in the win. The Hornets have now advanced to the second round of the playoffs in four consecutive seasons, including all three under head coach Chris Prewett.

Lanier grabbed an early 3-0 lead, but it could have been seven. The Longhorns' defense forced a quick three-and-out to start the game and then marched down the field and nearly scored a touchdown.

Quarterback Preston Ratliff and wide receiver Chris Jameson were unable to hook up on a slant near the goal line on third down that would have resulted in a touchdown. Instead, the Longhorns settled for a 33-yard field goal from Ben Haynes with 8:03 left in the first quarter.

With the Hornets surprisingly facing an early deficit, it didn’t take long at all for them to respond. Smith and the high-powered Hornet offense needed less than two minutes to answer back with a touchdown. Christopher Elko hauled in a 22-yard touchdown pass from Smith and that gave the Hornets the lead for good.

By the end of the first quarter, Roswell led Lanier 14-3 after Smith’s second touchdown pass of the night went to Dylan Williams.

The second quarter was pure domination by the Hornets. They scored four touchdowns in the period with the first three coming on the ground. Synkwan Smith made it 21-3 with a 24-yard run and Nykahi Davenport scored from 34 yards away to extend the lead to 28-3.

Davenport’s second touchdown of the quarter, this time a 60-yard score, gave Roswell a commanding 35-3 lead and Smith capped off the quarter by throwing his third touchdown pass of the night to Elko to give the Hornets a 42-3 lead at the break.

With the game well in control, Roswell scored just two more times in the second half. Smith capped off his great night offensively with a 7-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter and Alex Smiley capped the scoring with a 7-yard score of his own in the fourth quarter.
