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 Snellville 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 Snellville.

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 Snellville, 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.

 Electrical Repairs Snellville, GA

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

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Snellville, 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.

Electrical Services Snellville, GA

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

Chattanooga Inline Hockey Teams Thrive At Snellville Tournament

Over the weekend, two inline hockey teams from Chattanooga, the Konixx Scenic City Snipers, traveled to Snellville, Ga. to compete in the ECHO (East Coast Hockey Organization) Finals in the Club Division and Silver Division.

Over the weekend, two inline hockey teams from Chattanooga, the Konixx Scenic City Snipers, traveled to Snellville, Ga. to compete in the ECHO (East Coast Hockey Organization) Finals in the Club Division and Silver Division. This is one of the biggest inline hockey tournaments as teams from Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana and North Carolina all came to Snellville to try to win the gold in ECHO’s biggest end of the year tournament.

The Club team won The Club Division Championship and the Silver team lost to eventual champion QC Crown in the Semifinals. Both teams were a combined 8-3 in the tournament.

The Snipers’ Club team, which was fresh off winning the Hendersonville Regional Qualifier last month, opened pool play against the Rinkster Energy out of Georgia with a dominant 11-3 win. The Snipers continued their winning ways in pool play with a 4-1 win over Rink Rat Energy, also out of Georgia, in a game that was more dominant than the score as the Snipers held 90 percent of puck possession and peppered the opposing goalie throughout the game. The third and final pool play game was played against Vortex out of Alabama with the 1 seed on the line. The Snipers controlled the game, but mistakes led to a 5-2 loss. The Snipers headed into the playoff round as the 3 seed and had a rematch with Rinkster Energy in the quarterfinals. The Snipers dominated them again jumping out to a 7-2 lead and cruising to an 8-4 win. The Semifinals brought the Snipers their best challenge yet in perennial Club Division powerhouse Yacht Club out of Georgia. Yacht Club had won their previous eight tournaments they had entered including multiple wins over the Snipers during that stretch. This time it was different as the Snipers dictated a fast hard-nosed pace that took Yacht Club out of their slow paced puck movement game as the Snipers pulled off the upset and beat Yacht Club 3-1. The Snipers couldn’t celebrate too long as they faced Vortex their only loss of the tournament. Vortex got off to a blistering start controlling the first half of the first period and scored the first goal to go up 1-0. After some key saves, the Snipers settled in and score the next 6 goals to take a 6-1 lead. Then Vortex made a late push, but the damage was too much to overcome as the Snipers won the Club Division Championship over Vortex 6-4.

The Snipers were led up front in scoring by forwards Cole Carpenter and Avery Bachman as both forwards were heavy contributors throughout the tournament scoring multiple goals a game on more than one occasion. Forwards Scott Quatro and Jordan Isip potted timely goals throughout the tournament, but none bigger than in the championship game against Vortex as Isip scored the tying goal and Quatro scored the fourth goal to kill any momentum Vortex had. On the back end defenseman Brady Fulton and Noah Dillingham dictated the pace of the Snipers with their end to end rushes setting up multiple scoring plays along with scoring several goals throughout the tournament. Defenseman Wes Roberts and Allen Cox played solid one on one defense as they thwarted any type of rush the opposing team made and broke up multiple scoring chances with their smart and physical play. Most importantly in goal Evan Skiles was rock solid all weekend and gave the Snipers a calming presence in net. Skiles was the difference in the semifinal win in the upset win over Yacht Club, and in the championship he made multiple key saves early in the game to keep the game 1-0 to give the Snipers time to find their offense. Captain Scott Quatro said of the weekend, “It was a blast for the Snipers to represent Chattanooga hockey and win the biggest ECHO tourney of the year. We simply outcompeted all other teams. Great team chemistry and talent combined. In the end, it was truly a team championship. The Konixx Scenic City Snipers ended the 2021-2022 campaign on a high note by winning the Hendersonville Regional Qualifier and shocking people by winning the ECHO Finals. Bright future ahead for the Club team."

The Snipers’ Silver team, which also won the Hendersonville Regional Qualifier, was a part of the most competitive division at the ECHO Final in the Silver division. The Snipers had an excellent pool play as they beat the Raleigh Rebels and the Georgia Roller Bees but lost to the Snipe Show in pool play. The 2-1 record was good enough for the 3 seed in the playoff round. The Snipers faced the Ashville Aces in the quarterfinals and beat them 4-2. The Snipers lost a close 3-2 game to eventual Silver champion QC Crown out of North Carolina as the Snipers had two game tying chances in the final seconds fall short. Speedsters Nick King and Chris Sislo set the pace for the Snipers setting up Noah Dillingham (pulling double duty) and Dylan Guy throughout the tournament. Blaine Ennis was a threat for the Snipers every time he touched the puck throughout the tournament and Jimmy Curtis gave the Snipers a calming presence at defense with his solid play and passing throughout the tournament. The Silver team did not get the finish they wanted but that doesn’t take away from the amount of success they had this tournament season.

Founder of the Konixx Scenic City Snipers Noah Dillingham said on the success and growth of the program, “It’s been really cool to see how hockey in Chattanooga has grown over the last couple of years. We went from having no tournament teams to having three teams that compete at a very high level within their divisions. We’ve built a program that can compete with anyone in the country, and routinely beat teams from places that would be considered better hockey towns. It’s been amazing to watch our three teams grow to the point that we are one of the better programs in the Southeast, which is a roller hockey hotbed.

"Most of all, it’s been great to see the relationships formed from the players in the area. We’ve got a great group of guys who are close on and off the rink, and I truly believe that’s a huge part of our success, and why we’ve turned into a program that has won a lot of games over the last year and a half, including 8 tournament championships and one East Coast Hockey Organization National Championship. I’m excited about the future of our program, and look forward to watching hockey in Chattanooga grow in the coming years.”

In the span of two years, the Konixx Scenic City Snipers have made a name for themselves in the inline hockey world and results like this past weekend is just the beginning, club officials said.

After Cora shaves off beard, Sox shake off losing streak

ATLANTA -- Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who's not usually superstitious, took a page out of his brother Joey's book, shaving ahead of the trip to Atlanta. Maybe it was superstition or just a clean slate for Boston, but there was no 5 o'clock shadow when the team constructed a six-run second inning in a 9-4 win over the Braves on Tuesday night at Truist Park.The la...

ATLANTA -- Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who's not usually superstitious, took a page out of his brother Joey's book, shaving ahead of the trip to Atlanta. Maybe it was superstition or just a clean slate for Boston, but there was no 5 o'clock shadow when the team constructed a six-run second inning in a 9-4 win over the Braves on Tuesday night at Truist Park.

The last time the Red Sox put up more than five runs was on April 27 in a 7-1 win over the Blue Jays. Boston walked into the defending World Series champion's house with new life, even if it didn't know it yet.

Cora might not follow all the unwritten rules that come with the national pastime, but he watched his brother abide by them his entire life.

“My brother, I’m going to throw him under the bus, but he was to the extreme,” Cora said. “So I learned a little bit from him. But I was very routine-oriented. I played with some guys that were worse. Raúl Mondesi, for example. You know how they throw the cups in the dugout? He wanted no part of that. He will make sure he picks it up. And it’s not because he wanted the dugout to be clean. … He did it all the time. In this sport, everything goes. I think that’s the beauty of 162.”

Even if he had to go against his intuition, Cora knew his team was struggling and needed a change.

Some of the players noticed Cora's shaven face, while others didn't. But the noticeable change was in their play, and although it may be just for one game, the adjustment worked.

"There are a lot of people that will walk by my office -- I’ve got two doors -- they’ll walk by, ‘What’s up, AC?’" Cora said. "And some of them just kept going, so they didn’t pay attention. And others will be like, ‘What’s up, AC?’ and then in a second it was like, ‘Oh, gosh.’ So whatever. It is what it is."

In the second inning, five consecutive batters reached safely on three hits and two walks, before Rafael Devers launched his third career grand slam, which jumped off his bat at 111.3 mph and traveled 432 feet. Boston went scoreless until the ninth and then put up three more runs for good measure, while J.D. Martinez extended his hit streak to 12 games.

"Obviously our third baseman, he's locked in right now," Cora said. "His swings and the quality of the bats are phenomenal."

Trevor Story , who has gotten off to a slow start this season, was 2-for-5 with a two-run single in the ninth. The last time the Sox scored more than nine runs was on April 5 in a 10-6 win over the Twins.

"It was great; we've been grinding a little bit offensively, and to put up nine [runs] like that, it's a pretty good sign for us," Story said. "A lot of good hits, a lot of great at-bats, something we can build on for sure."

And if Boston's offensive production wasn't proof enough that Cora's fresh shave was working, the bullpen that had been struggling to close out games was able to hold the Braves to one run after a three-run third. Snellville, Ga., native Garrett Whitlock was the culprit of the three runs, which are the most he has allowed in a game this season. Although the righty was frustrated with his performance in front of family and friends in attendance, his family on the field picked him up when he was down.

"It's always amazing, I know these guys always have my back no matter what, and it really showed tonight," Whitlock said. "It shows every single day, even what you guys can't see, so it's amazing the camaraderie and the family that this whole team is."

Now the question is, how long will Cora keep the clean-shaven look? And will the entire team show up freshly-shaved for the finale of the two-game series on Wednesday? But that could be too much like their New York rivals for the do-it-your way Sox.

"They wouldn't do that. Nah they're not gonna do that," Cora said. "But I got a text from [my daughter] Angelica, and she's like, 'Well, you know, I told you 10 days ago, it's on you.’ But you know, like I said, if our offense depends on my facial hair, we're in big trouble."

The University of North Georgia (UNG) honored more than 1,300 graduates in three commencement ceremonies May 6-7 in the Convocation Center on UNG's Dahlonega Campus.

Three alumni served as keynote speakers: Jane Hemmer, Joshua Teteak, '94, and Dr. John Hemmer, '67. Jane Hemmer and Teteak are UNG Foundation trustees.

"You are ready to take on the next chapter of your life — whether that means starting your career, advancing your education or taking time to serve society in some way," Teteak told the graduates. "You have a world-class education, you have developed leadership skills, you know how to work effectively as part of a team, and you understand how to leverage technology."

Among the graduates was Domini'que Allen, assistant director of the UNG Gainesville Campus food pantry. Allen earned a master’s degree in human services delivery and administration after previously earning a bachelor's degree in human services delivery and administration.

You have a world-class education, you have developed leadership skills, you know how to work effectively as part of a team, and you understand how to leverage technology.

Joshua Teteak, '94

"I have accomplished many things here at UNG, and I credit those achievements to the unwavering support I have always been given," Allen said. "I am the first of my siblings to receive a master's degree, and at age 30, I will also be the youngest to receive in my entire family to earn a graduate degree."

For Ben Bradley, receiving a bachelor's degree in cybersecurity was the culmination of a winding journey. The Snellville, Georgia, resident utilized remedial classes as he transitioned from

a GED program to college-level courses and overcame personal struggles to attain a degree. The 37-year-old credits Return to UNG coordinator Kathy Tosh with helping him reach his goal. He is also a first-generation college graduate and added that his experience has inspired his sister to further her education. Bradley said his long-term goal is law school and there is a possibility of a master's degree in cybersecurity in the meantime.

"I have unequivocal proof that I'm capable of achieving whatever I devote myself to," Bradley said, adding that he had to practice used patience, perseverance, and persistence.

Dozens of graduates plan to start their military careers. Seventy-seven graduates took their oath of office and were commissioned as second lieutenants in the Army, Georgia Army National Guard or Army Reserve in individual ceremonies May 4-6. They are among the approximately 120 officers UNG expects to commission during the 2021-22 academic year. UNG is one of only six senior military colleges in the United States and is designated as the Military College of Georgia.

Another one of the graduates was Jessica Nix, of Flowery Branch, Georgia, who earned a degree in biology. Nix dedicated her studies to investigating a possible connection between smoking and bladder cancer. She said her main goal was to provide research that can improve modern cancer treatment. Nix's research has been funded by multiple grants, and she also led fellow students in research. Nix said she will spend the next year working in a histology lab and then begin work on a doctoral degree in anatomical education with hopes of returning to UNG as a professor.

"My journey was a labor of love. It involved tears, hard work and determination," Nix said. "I relied heavily on my academic mentor and peers. I have a few accolades, none of which would be possible without my support team. As a first-generation woman in STEM, I look forward to taking the passion and dedication I've gained over the years into my future endeavors."

An ounce of prevention can save you lots of money in the long run and keep your home safe from damage.

Every year, termites cause billions of dollars of structural damage, and property owners spend over $2 billion treating these destructive pests.

Fortunately, Thumbtack — a convenient home services app used by millions — makes it easier than ever to find top-rated termite inspectors in the Snellville area.
