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. From a residential standpoint, you need it to cook, clean, entertain, and live comfortably. For commercial purposes, electricity is used to power the computers needed to keep America moving. That's why, when the electricity in your home or at your job is compromised, life grinds to a halt. Unfortunately, electrical problems are inevitable in today's day and age.

With more than 60 years of combined experience as electricians, we are capable of troubleshooting and fixing a litany of electrical issues in your house. Keep reading to learn more about the most common electrical issues our customers report, along with some handy tips on how to remediate such problems.
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 Sugar Hill to your home to fix the problem on-site.
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.
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 Sugar Hill.
Unlike some of our competitors, who are reluctant to provide any information that might prevent them from making a buck, L&M Electric is all about empowering our customers. If we can offer sound advice that will educate our clients and help them save money, we have no problem doing so. That's why we have put together some helpful tips and tricks for maintaining your home's most common electrical systems. Because, at the end of the day, a little knowledge can go a long way when it comes to your family's safety.
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.
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 Sugar Hill, GA, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.
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.
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.
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:

TEDxAlexanderPark's theme "Back to Basics" comes from Theodor Seuss Geisel also known as Dr. Seuss who in 1971 published a book titled the Lorax, which shares the story of an old man named Once-ler who endows a young boy with the responsibility to save the future of forestry, animals and humanity by planting a last Truffula (tree) seed and avoiding the greed of profit-over-planet that led the Once-ler to nearly pioneer an apocalypse.
"It's amazing to see our community come together around the common intention to impact our local and global community," says organizer Darryll Stinson.
From teenagers to seniors, average salary earners to multi-multi-millionaires, TEDxAlexanderPark speakers will present topics ranging from technology and education to pet adoption, mindfulness, and consciousness. All the talks will be centered around a common event goal — manifesting community impact.
Speakers include: Ocean Robbins, co-founder and CEO of the Food Revolution Network, Ashley Wright, 2023 Gwinnett County Teacher of the Year; Bucky O'Neil, International Speaker and Mentor; Elyssa Fernandez a young filmmaker, artist, and entrepreneur; Lee Richter, Global Leader and award-winning CEO; Ameya Agnihotri, student at the Gwinnett School of Mathematics and Technology; Stephen Schettini, Ex-Monk and thought leader; Iris Grimm, 22 plus year Dog Trainer; Dr. Matisa Wilbon, anthropologist and sociologist; and Travis Hall, lead Pastor of Life Church International.
Former Fortune 100 executive Steven Monahan serves as co-organizer of the event, as well as the City of Sugar Hill Mayor Brandon Hembree.

With new development around City Hall and musical events at The Bowl, the city of Sugar Hill continues to look at ways to draw visitors to its downtown area.
One of those ways isn’t new, however, it’s a holiday tradition. And that tradition is back as the Ice Rink at Sugar Hill opened for business on Thursday.
In its seventh year in its familiar position behind City Hall, the rink will bring skaters from around the area to Sugar Hill through the holidays and on into 2023 — running through Feb. 19.
The rink drew more than 20,000 people last year, and similar crowds are expected this year to enjoy the venue that is the same size as the rink at Rockefeller Center in New York City.
“The Ice Rink at Sugar Hill is the perfect spot for date night, family fun, or a solo day out in downtown,” Communications and Social Media Manager Victoria Richburg said. “This time of year brings so many of our community members together to celebrate and having the ice rink here in downtown is a large piece of why people gather.”
The rink is owned and run by Leon Agostinho of Have An Ice Day. He said, on average, approximately 1,000 paid skaters visit the rink on any given weekend.
The Ice Rink offers complimentary use of skate trainers and helmets for kids.
“It’s a fun way to get out and get moving,” Agostinho told the Daily Post last season.
The rink is 120 feet long and 60 feet wide — the same size as the rink at the Rockefeller Center. Agostinho said his goal is simply to provide entertainment for the families and friends of the Sugar Hill community.
“We do see this continuing for years to come,” Agostinho said. “Hopefully for as long as we can.”
As the downtown area has developed, it makes it so visitors can come skate and spend the day shopping or eating at one of the downtown restaurants.
General admission is $12 for adults and $8 for children with a $3 skate rental fee. A season pass is offered for $139.
The Ice Rink offers complimentary use of skate trainers and helmets for kids.

Just south of Lake Lanier’s southernmost shores, a residential project has broken ground that developers say will create a new level of luxury living at the doorstep of Gwinnett County’s latest city center.
Atlanta-based Novare Group, a real estate development and investment company still known for glassy towers like Metropolis built during intown’s early-aughts condo wave, is moving forward with a rental community described as both Class A and garden-style in Sugar Hill.
The 306-unit project, a partnership with BCDC, is claiming 23 acres off Ga. Highway 20 near Sugar Hill’s mixed-use downtown that’s sprung up in recent years. That includes hundreds of apartments, greenspace, an amphitheater called The Bowl, and the distinctive, Art Deco-inspired The Eagle Theatre.
Plans call for a mix of two-story townhomes and more traditional rental units at the gated community. Onsite perks will include de rigueur coworking spaces, a resort-style pool with a sun shelf, a clubroom, a yoga room in the gym, a dog park and spa, and for more studious renters, a library. Private garages for some units are also in the plans.
The Sugar Hill Greenway—the city’s planned, 11.5-mile multi-use trail system—will be integrated into the Novare project site and will eventually link with the rest of downtown by way of a pedestrian bridge over Ga. Highway 20, officials say. The City of Sugar Hill (motto: “The Sweet Life”) reported last week the trail’s first 4.7-mile phase is nearly complete.
Jim Borders, Novare president and CEO, described Sugar Hill in a recent announcement as “one of the premier places to live in Gwinnett County” now, owing to “the high value the city places on the quality of life.”
Novare Group; designs, Dynamik Design
BCDC president and CEO Litt Glover said the forthcoming, untitled project’s “market-leading amenities” and walkability to downtown will “set the bar for what residents can expect from luxury apartment living in Sugar Hill.”
The project was designed by Atlanta architecture firm Dynamik Design, while Kimley Horn is on board as civil engineer and Doster Construction as general contractor.
Developers expect the first units to deliver in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Elsewhere in metro Atlanta, Novare is developing an eight-building project called Populus Westside with an affordability component directly west of Midtown. The company is also part of the team creating a new downtown for the Cobb County city of Powder Springs.
Since its founding in 1995, Novare has developed more than 19,000 residences in 61 places around the U.S., per company officials.
