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.

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 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.

 Electrical Repairs Spartanburg, 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 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.

Electrical Services Spartanburg, 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

SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – 17 people were arrested and 22 people were wanted following a drug round-up in Spartanburg County.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office identified 39 people who were selling fentanyl, methamphetamine, marijuana and heroin during a year-long investigation.

“A lot of times when we get one person, you can get three to four more with that if you just be a little patient, and that’s what we’ve been trying to do,” said Sheriff Wright.

According to the sheriff’s office, the following 17 suspects of the suspects were arrested and charged:

Sheriff Wright said they can’t control how long people stay behind bars, but the ones arrested are off the streets for now.

“I hear people talking all the time about how quickly they get in and out of jail, you know, that’s not our fault. Our job is to put them in jail, do the investigation, listen to our complaints,” said Sheriff Wright.

Sheriff Wright said the majority of suspects are wanted for methamphetamine.

“We as a community and a society, we’re going to have to do a lot better job of um, we just gotta do better,” he said.

The following people are still wanted on drug charges by the sheriff’s office:

Out of the 39 people named, 22 people are still wanted by the sheriff’s office.

“They’re at-large and I don’t know if anybody is really running from us, they, we just can’t find them because a lot of times, when you’re dealing drugs, you’ve got 10 or 12 places you can be in one day,” said Sheriff Wright.

Deputies are still actively searching to find the wanted suspects.

“We’re just scratching the surface with these, right here. There’s plenty more and we’re going to try to get them,” he said.

Sheriff Wright said as summer approaches, he wants people to have a safe summer, free of drugs.

“If your face isn’t up here and you’re dealing drugs, don’t think you’ve gotten away with it just yet,” he said.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the people mentioned above is asked to contact the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Memorial Day weekend is shaping up to be a gem with plenty of sunshine.

But first, there's more rain – and a lot of it – along with the possibility of thunderstorms to contend with, according to the National Weather Service at Greenville-Spartanburg.

In fact, the Anderson, Greenville and Spartanburg areas could see at least 1 to 2 inches of rainfall through Thursday night, according to the latest forecast.

"The area should get at least an inch of rain from that system coming through on Thursday," meteorologist Doug Outlaw said. "Rain should diminish Friday and end in the evening, and then a dry weekend."

This week began stormy Monday, with thunderstorms, over an inch of rainfall and a 200-yard-wide EF-1 tornado with 110 mph winds that uprooted trees and damaged roofs of homes along a 5.3-mile path near Chesnee.

After a cloudy and breezy Wednesday, rain should arrive late Wednesday night into Thursday morning,

The Upstate is under a risk for thunderstorms Thursday, according to the NWS. A large area from Texas to lower Michigan is under a marginal risk for severe weather Thursday.

Showers, storms Thursday

For the region, the forecast calls for an 80% chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday with a high near 81. There is a 90% chance of showers and a thunderstorm Thursday night.

A 70% chance of showers and possibly a thunderstorm are expected Friday with a high near 79. By Friday night, there is a 30% chance of showers as the storm system moves away.

On Saturday, expect plenty of sunshine with a high near 80 to 82. Sunday will be sunny with a high of 84 to 86, and Memorial Day will see a high near 88 under a sunny sky.

Piggly Wiggly store manager says south side Spartanburg location will open this summer

Since supply chain disruptions have delayed Piggly Wiggly's opening on Spartanburg's south side, store manager Randy Burton is cautious about giving a definite opening date for the grocery store.

Those repeated delays have made some residents become impatient. In a city council meeting on March 14, Councilwoman Ruth Littlejohn said she has heard "false rumors" about Piggly Wiggly not coming, but clarified that it is going to come.

Since January, Burton has not given a specific timeline but said the store will "definitely open this summer."

According to Burton, progress has been made at Piggly Wiggly since January. The store has installed all of its refrigeration equipment, which was not yet in place in January.

Previous reporting:Spartanburg's south side residents seeking consistency from Piggly Wiggly grocery store chain

Right now, Burton said he is waiting on "one electrical panel expected to be delivered by the end of May, some paintwork, and various licensing for the store."

Burton said the hot and cold deli planned for the grocery store will not open with everything else. Waiting for kitchen equipment for the deli may further delay Piggly Wiggly's opening.

"The grocery store will be open this summer for sure," Burton said. "But we're going to open the kitchen later because it would delay the opening if we waited for all the kitchen equipment to come in."

Since the city made announcements about Piggly Wiggly, the in-store pharmacy space was eliminated to make way for a larger-store concept.

Long wait for a south side Spartanburg grocery store

The city's south side residents have been living without a grocery store for almost three years now.

On Aug. 24, 2019, the previous grocery store, Save-A-Lot, closed without notice. Three years before Save-A-Lot opened, Green Galaxy closed in 2004.

In a consumer market study on households near the incoming Piggly Wiggly, 17.3% of residents within a 10-minutes-drive have a household income below $10,000 and many residents need public transportation to get around. The area is classified as a food desert meaning an urban area where it is difficult to buy affordable or good-quality fresh food. Many poor people live in food deserts.

In March 2021, City Manager Chris Story said the new store could be welcoming customers within six months at a community meeting.

In an August 2021 update, Burton said the store should be ready to open by January 2022.

Former Spartanburg state Rep. Brenda Lee Pryce said she has received residents' calls about the grocery store since it was announced it was opening.

"When we're given a deadline, everybody is looking toward that," Pryce said. "When it was put off, people were anxiously waiting even to the point where some people didn't think it was going to happen. They said to me that they'll believe it when they see it. They've told us so many times about different dates it's going to open and nothing happened. And that's very disappointing to hear because the need is there."

The delays have been tough on residents without cars and with limited income. And they have also been difficult for those trying to take care of their friends and families with limited resources, Pryce said.

"It's tough out here," Pryce said. "For those who drive cars and put gas in our cars, we've got a reason to complain about that. A good part of (those without cars or livable income) has family members (with cars) having to take care of family. So it depletes the family members' income trying to help the other family members who do not have those resources."

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – When the unthinkable happens, trained, medical professionals at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System are available to provide help and support.

It’s something they have been doing for many years. Now, the healthcare system is teaming up with other state agencies to remind patients that help is available beyond their doors.

Spartanburg Regional’s acute-care hospitals are the first in the state of South Carolina to be accredited to the Sexual Assault Forensic Excellence (SAFE) Designation System.

“Today marks a large step for us. We have met our first hospital facility that has reached a SAFE designation,” said Sabrina Gast, statewide Forensic Nurse Director with the South Carolina Victim Assistance Network.

Spartanburg Medical Center, Spartanburg Medical Center – Mary Black Campus, Cherokee Medical Center, Union Medical Center and Pelham Medical Center’s emergency departments were named a part of the designation system. It’s one that is accredited to hospitals, communities and other agencies that support victims of sexual assault.

“We wanted to be able to say this hospital would see patients that wouldn’t be turned away. They are going to get the appropriate trauma-related care whenever they go to those facilities,” said Amanda Brown, statewide Forensic Nurse Examiner Program Coordinator with the South Carolina Victim Assistance Network.

Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System is working alongside the Attorney General’s Office, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), South Carolina Victim Assistance Network (SCVAN), and other trained professionals to help patients in some of their darkest moments.

“The forensic nursing team here at Spartanburg Regional sees patients after they present for sexual assault or domestic violence. We see more than 600 patients a year at all of our facilities in Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union Counties,” said Jennifer Combs, Spartanburg Regional Forensic Nurse Coordinator.

The new designation is aiming to reassure patients that they will receive the necessary care they need no matter which Spartanburg Regional Healthcare facility they go to.

“Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counties all have somewhere that they can go and receive exceptional trauma care whenever their victims come in,” said Brown.

“When you get here, you are our only patient. We will spend as much time as needed to care for you and let you know what you can do when you leave here to ensure the best possible outcome,” said Combs.

The accreditation is a reminder that someone will guide sexual assault and domestic violence victims to recovery.

“We have always cared for patients in the trauma-informed manner. It’s just now we are recognized and patients will know, before they arrive at this hospital, that they will receive that care,” said Combs.

According to forensic nurses, evidence can be taken up to four days following a sexual assault. Visit one of Spartanburg Regional Healthcare’s emergency departments and a nurse will assist you.

If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
