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 Spartanburg 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 Spartanburg.

 Smart Home Installation Spartanburg, 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.

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

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Spartanburg, 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.

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

SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. —

An Upstate foundation received an $8 million donation from a billionaire philanthropist.

The Mary Black Foundation in Spartanburg was established more than 25 years ago to improve the health and wellness of Spartanburg County.

So far, the foundation has invested more than $65 million in the community.

Earlier this year, President/CEO Molly Talbot-Metz was contacted by an organization researching foundations.

"They asked us a lot of questions about the work we do in the community and the kinds of things that we support and then they basically said, you may never really hear about this ever again and I went about my business thinking I'd never hear about it again," said Talbot-Metz.

What she didn't know was that the group was working on behalf of billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott.

A few months later, she was contacted again.

"Someone on her team called and said that she has researched our organization and was really impressed with what we do in Spartanburg County and that she would be giving us $8 million to be able to do more. "I just about fell out of my chair, I was so excited. I couldn't believe it," she said.

Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has donated billions of dollars to organizations, none of which apply or ask for it.

This week, for example, she donated 20 million dollars to the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

"The way she does philanthropy is really unique," said Talbot-Metz. "To do that kind of research into organizations and then to just give a significant amount of funding and to trust the organizations to do the work."

Leaders at the Mary Black Foundation will take a few months to put together a committee of its board and staff and decide how to best use the donation.

"It's certainly a credit to our board and our staff and the work that we do but it's also a credit to this community that we can attract that kind of national attention," said Talbot-Metz.

Nov. 28. By Dave Vieser. As many people have noticed, jets traveling to Charlotte Douglas International sometimes fly quite low as they undertake their final approach.

What causes this and what can be done about it? Sayle Brown, who serves as the Cornelius representative on the Charlotte Airport Community Roundtable, addressed these issues at the Cornelius Town Board meeting of Oct. 17. We also investigated this issue independently.

Weather plays a role

CLT has two basic directions for their runways—southern runways and northern runways. Planes normally land and take off into the wind, so when the wind is from the south, which is more frequent in our region, especially in the summer, planes will descend over Cornelius and vicinity as they approach for a landing. That’s when our jet noise is the worst. When winds come from the north, planes will take off and ascend quickly before reaching our area, and that causes much less noise.

Another factor: The airport is back to nearly full operations after a two-year reduction during the pandemic.

What’s the breakdown between north and south runway usage?

The airport officials claim it is 50/50, but personal observation as well as the National Weather Service in Greenville/Spartanburg SC indicate that the south/southwest/southeast winds are far more common in our area, especially during the summer when people are outdoors and likely to be more aware of jet noise.

It seems to have been worse recently.

What happened?

Brown says it is due in large part to the manner in which the controllers are routing the planes as they approach the airport. “Ideally, these planes would be routed north of us, over Mooresville at an altitude of about 6,000 feet, then turn and fly down the main channel above the Lake and begin descending on a 3 degree glide path at a lower power setting in a straight line towards the runway. However, what the controllers are doing is routing them over our area while descending them to a height of 3,000 feet and then have them turn toward the airport. That 3,000 feet makes a big difference when it comes to jet noise. They are literally cutting the corner when they route them over Davidson and Cornelius.”

Why do they route them in this manner?

Aviation officials claim this routing saves fuel and cuts a minute or two off flight times, which can add up in a busy airport like CLT. They also claim that routing them otherwise would be more expensive and burn more fuel—not good for the environment. It’s a balance between environmental issues of sorts: noise vs. fuel use, as well as costs.

Seven Keydets earn All-SoCon honors

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Southern Conference released both its Coaches and Media All-SoCon teams and awards on Tuesday afternoon, with Stone Snyder, Alex Oliver, Robert Soderholm and ...

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Southern Conference released both its Coaches and Media All-SoCon teams and awards on Tuesday afternoon, with Stone Snyder, Alex Oliver, Robert Soderholm and Jack Culbreath all getting First Team nods from the coaches. The Keydets also had representation on the All-Freshman squad, with Isaiah Lemmond (offense), Jahleel Porter (defense) and Geoffrey Speight (defense) earning the accolade.

On the media side, Oliver and Soderholm earned First Team nods, with Snyder and Culbreath earning second team honors. There is no All-Freshman team in the media poll.

Stone Snyder – Linebacker - Senior Snyder continued to dominate defensively, posting a league-high 107 tackles despite missing one game due to injury. The Richmond, Virginia native had 11-plus tackles five times this season, including a season-high 19 to go with a tackle for loss and forced fumble against Cornell. At the end of the regular season, Snyder's average of 10.7 tackles per game ranks third in the nation, and his 5.1 solo tackles per game is 29th. Among Snyder's other standout games this season were: Wake Forest (6 tackles, 0.5 TFL), No. 10 Samford (12.0 tackles, 0.5 TFL), The Citadel (18.0 tackles). Finishing his career with 339 tackles (6th among active FCS players), Snyder is just outside of the top 10 at VMI, doing so in just 38 games due to the Covid-shortened season. Snyder leaves VMI as a two-time All-American and two-time SoCon Defensive Player of the Year, and a three-time Buck Buchanan finalist for Defensive Player of the Year in FCS Football, with more postseason awards likely to come his way.

Alex Oliver – Defensive Back – Junior Building upon a successful sophomore campaign, Oliver set career-highs in tackles (75.0 – fourth on the team), interceptions (3) and break ups (10). Oliver's 10 break ups are not only a team-high, but currently rank 24th in the nation and finished the season fourth among SoCon players. Oliver recorded at least two tackles in every game, racking up eight or more five times including a career-high 11 along with a fumble recovery at Wofford. Oliver's three interceptions were a team-best, with two coming against No. 16 Mercer. Oliver's 27 career pass break ups currently rank him 10th among active players at the FCS level.

Robert Soderholm – Long Snapper – Redshirt Senior Recently earning SpecialTeamsU All-American status, Soderholm is now a four-time All-American and has earned All-SoCon First Team nods the past two seasons. Soderholm, who was preseason All-American by three different organizations, does more than execute his snaps in a nearly flawless fashion – as the Stafford, Virginia native has picked up three tackles this season and is responsible for picking up blockers after the snap.

Jack Culbreath – Punter – Junior Coming off a 2021 season in which he was named a Hero Sports All-American and made the All-SoCon First Team, Culbreath had another career year, totaling 2,790 yards on 64 punts for an average of 43.6 yards per kick. Handling the kickoff duties as well, Culbreath notched career-highs in touchbacks (5) and fair catches (15), pinning the ball inside the 20 nine times and hitting 14 punts 50 or more yards. Against Wofford, Culbreath crushed a career-high 60-yard punt as he averaged 51.5 yards per kick on the day.

Isaiah Lemmond – Wide Receiver It didn't take long for Lemmond to work himself into the offense, hauling in three catches for 80 yards in the second game of his career. Lemmond, who finishes the season second on the team in receiving yards with 453, recorded two or more catches in the last six games including six apiece against No. 9, Chattanooga, Furman and No. 10 Samford. Lemmond finally got into the end zone at Wofford, when he hauled in a 52-yarder for his first career score.

Jahleel Porter – Defensive Back Like Lemmond, Porter showed his value right from the start, totaling 7.0 tackles and two pass break ups at No. 22 Wake Forest. Porter, who recorded a tackle in all but two games, registered a pass break up against Cornell, two against ETSU and one against Furman. Perhaps the most noteworthy highlight of Porter's young career came at No. 9 Chattanooga when he returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown. It was the first kickoff return for a touchdown by a VMI player since 2015 and is the fourth-longest play in Keydet history.

Geoffrey Speight – Defensive Line Making his debut at Wake Forest, Speight established himself with 3.0 tackles and 0.5 tackles for loss in a win over Bucknell. Speight, who would record a tackle in all but one game, registered tackles for loss at No. 9 Chattanooga (1.0), against Furman (1.5), against No. 16 Mercer (1.5) and at No. 10 Samford (1.0). Speight's season-high in tackles came against Mercer, in which he totaled 7.0, registering a quarterback hurry in the process.
