Your Residential Electrician

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 Suwanee to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

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.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

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 Suwanee.

Tips to Save Money and Maintain Your Home’s Electrical Systems

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.

Install-Surge-Protectors

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

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

Test Your GFIs

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

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

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

Deion Sanders, Jackson State Host Travis Hunter in Rare Visit for Top Recruits and HBCUs

By now, even the most casual college football fan has come across Deion Sanders' name this fall.

Whether it be the remarkable job he's doing as Jackson State's head coach, the splashes of sound he consistently gives the SWAC and HBCUs on the national stage, his improved health or even the caricature-like Aflac commercials with Nick Saban -- the former NFL and college great has tangible buzz around what he is working on.

Rarely coy, Sanders has even commented on being a candidate for some of the open vacancies at the FBS level before his first two seasons at JSU have come to an official close (and should be on radar for even more). High-profile transfers have been infused into the Tiger roster and the quick turnaround in perception around the program has been easy to grasp.

Part of the call to attention for his mission and that of the HBCU athletics, itself, is to bring more football talent to that level. That part is getting better, thanks in large part to what he started in 2020, but getting elite recruits to consider JSU against Power 5 programs remains an uphill battle.

"When you talk about recruiting, you've got to break this thing down in three," Sanders said in October. “You're talking about grad transfers, you're talking just guys in the Portal and you're talking about high school guys. What's your needs? What's your dern needs? What do you need right now? Do you have the time and is your college going to give you the time to develop these young men out of high school?

"Because that's predominantly, let's just say at the best, that's a two-year process.”

Step one of the high school battle, even with development in mind, is identifying elite talent sooner. A compliment to that is getting established talent -- coveted unanimously -- to see your campus in person over the same opportunity at the P5 level.

It's one thing for a transfer to take a trip in looking for his next stop, but it's entirely another for an elite high school recruit to do so before he signs with a particular institution. It makes headlines when one visits despite being committed to another program, even more so when it's the premiere recruit in the country.

That next step was taken Saturday. Led by Sanders, JSU and the HBCU landscape may point to Travis Hunter visiting for the Alcorn State game as the next sign of tangible progress.

The game probably felt like a normal recruiting visit to Hunter, who has attended games at Florida State and Georgia this fall. He spent time on the field in front of 62,512 people before kickoff. A Saturday sellout.

"We've got to do the best that we can do to get those kids to HBCUs,” Sanders said of top talent.

Hunter is the No. 1 recruit in the SI99 rankings and he holds the No. 1 post on other recruiting outlets as well. The visit is the only he's taken outside of the Power 5 in years, as far as we can track. Despite advances from Alabama, Michigan and other programs when his longtime commitment to Florida State appeared vulnerable, he did not visit.

Yet he took in Jackson State's biggest game of the 2021 season.

Hunter has long known Sanders and sure, connections to the program go beyond the famous coach due to its emergingly well-known roster including quarterback Shedeur Sanders. But that is true of perhaps a dozen programs relative to those pursuing the Suwanee (Ga.) Collins Hill two-way star.

The day prior, in a playoff game in which he returned from a serious ankle injury suffered in the middle of the season, Hunter reminded college programs of the potential he has. The senior put up more than 100 yards and a touchdown on offense while complimenting the effort with an interception on the other side of the ball.

The potential to perform as a lockdown cover corner and moonlight on offense and in the return game, at Florida State no less, has some in college football likening him to the coach able to get him on campus most recently -- Sanders.

It may mean nothing.

It could mean everything...eventually.

Hunter has been steadfast in his commitment to Florida State, even earlier this fall when Mike Norvell's program slid to new lows in the loss column. He has since returned to Tallahassee and doubled down on his words, supporting new FSU pledges, celebrating the win over rival Miami and much more.

Come December 15, when Hunter will officially end the recruiting process with his signature to one program, will there now be a Jackson State hat on the table alongside one to FSU and another to the in-state Bulldogs?

It may mean nothing to some, but it could mean everything to the next wave of talent to have eyes on the nation's best in 2022.

The next step for Sanders and company would be reeling in a big fish like Hunter, though the follow up to the 2021 recruiting class should inch the program closer to that end point.

Georgia is going to remain a serious contender for the 2024 four-star linebacker among others but Brown’s trip to Ohio State this weekend made a big impression. The atmosphere stood out for sure but maybe more than anything, Brown loved how disciplined and focused the linebackers played, rarely making mistakes and dominating Michigan State’s offense.

“Those coaches know what they’re doing and it shows,” Brown said.

It’s still too early for the 2023 three-star safety from Suwanee (Ga.) Collins Hill to name a frontrunner but his weekend trip to Tennessee definitely stood out and the Volunteers will remain a major player in his recruitment. The reason? The coaches.

“The coaching staff was different than anywhere else I’ve been,” Davis said.

Georgia stood out again to the 2024 defensive end from Franklin (Ga.) Heard County because the coaches intentionally came over to get to know him and his family better. It left a big-time impression on Echols, who said Georgia along with Florida State, UCF, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and LSU are some early standouts.

One thing Formby looks closely at during his visits is the fan reaction and, “Clemson fans were some of the best,” he said.

The massive 2023 three-star offensive lineman camped at Clemson last summer, got to catch up with the coaches and loves the facilities there.

“There’s a great culture at Clemson,” Formby said.

The high four-star Kentucky commit has been taking visits all fall - including numerous ones back to Lexington - and this past weekend he was at Texas A&M where that coaching staff gave him the hard sell on just how early he could play.

The message to Goodwin: The Aggies are losing their left tackle and they’re starting two freshmen now. He could come in immediately, compete for the job and compete for a national title in the next few years. And Texas A&M could finish with the No. 1 overall recruiting class in 2022.

“I loved it out there,” Goodwin said. “Totally different than what I expected."

Boston College and Georgia Tech are the first two offers for the 2024 four-star defensive end from Lawrenceville (Ga.) Mountain View. He was at Tennessee this weekend, loved it and the Volunteers will be closely watched as his recruitment continues.

Greene especially connected well with the coaches and loved the “amazing” facilities. No favorites yet since his recruitment is just getting underway.

According to Haynes’ father, Verron, the Clemson trip was incredible and the family loved the electric atmosphere of a game-day environment there. What especially made a big impression is that Clemson’s coaches broke down what Haynes’ class schedule would look like for his major and the extensive time spent with coach Dabo Swinney on his birthday.

Georgia and others are also very high but the Tigers left a big-time impression following this visit.

What stood out to the 2025 standout running back from Elba, Ala., during his trip to Alabama this weekend?

“Everything, literally,” Henderson said.

The facilities were great and while Henderson doesn’t have a dream offer he definitely sees himself fitting in in Tuscaloosa.

Arkansas, Georgia, Ole Miss, Penn State and others have offered early on.

In a good sign for Oklahoma, the 2023 five-star defensive lineman spent not only Saturday but also a good portion of Sunday in Norman and the Sooners remain one of the key favorites along with Texas, Texas A&M and maybe others.

The message from the Oklahoma coaches was that Hicks could come in early and make an impact. It was definitely one message that stood out over the weekend.

The 2023 four-star defensive end from College Park (Ga.) Woodward Academy loved the fans, how Ohio State played, the coaches and the facilities during his time in Columbus over the weekend. The Buckeyes along with Michigan, Northwestern, Auburn and Georgia Tech stand out most early on.

The five-star cornerback who backed off his USC pledge recently was back at The Coliseum this weekend for the rivalry game against UCLA to give one more look at the Trojans. He could not like what he saw, not only as the Trojans got blown out but the game-day attendance was abysmal.

Alabama has emerged as the frontrunner in Jackson’s recruitment ever since he got back from Tuscaloosa and he will visit Michigan one last time this weekend for the Ohio State matchup. A decision during the Early Signing Period is expected.

The Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei linebacker has been committed to Texas since August and he said the first-season stumbles by coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff are not of major concern in his recruitment.

However, schools might see an opening as UCLA continues to try to flip him and get a visit and others could pop in once Kerry’s season winds down in the coming weeks as well.

After being committed to TCU, the three-star offensive tackle from Everman, Texas, backed off that pledge Sunday following his official visit to Texas Tech over the weekend. The Red Raiders and North Texas are the two main schools now in his recruitment.

McConnell had been committed to TCU since February but on Sunday the three-star offensive tackle from Choctaw, Okla., backed off that pledge and immediately tons of schools got in contact. Georgia Tech, LSU and Nebraska have all reached out through Sunday evening and then Texas Tech, Vanderbilt and Minnesota had been in contact prior to his de-commitment.

The 2023 offensive lineman from Anniston, Ala., has found himself in an interesting situation. McElderry is planning to commit at the end of this month and the feeling was that Georgia was way out in front in his recruitment as of just days ago.

But a weekend visit to Alabama garnered him a new offer from the Crimson Tide and now they have made him a priority to land his commitment. The coming days in McElderry’s recruitment could get really interesting because Alabama might have pulled even - if not ahead - for him.

After his weekend visit to Athens, “UGA is very high for me,” Mitchell said.

The 2023 four-star cornerback loved the atmosphere and the fans inside Sanford Stadium, plus he got to spend time with coach Kirby Smart and assistants Dan Lanning, Scott Cochran, Jahmile Addae and others. The Alabaster (Ala.) Thompson standout has a top seven but the Bulldogs made a big case this weekend.

According to the father of the four-star offensive lineman from Findlay, Ohio, there was “A-plus culture” at Clemson over the weekend and “family is huge” there.

Ohio State, Michigan and others are going to be super competitive in Montgomery’s recruitment but Clemson definitely left its mark on the family during the weekend trip.

“We really love the place,” Mike Montgomery said.

A weekend visit to Oklahoma has squarely put the Sooners among the early frontrunners for the 2023 defensive end from Trussville (Ala.) Hewitt Trussville. The Sooners along with Michigan, Oregon, Florida, Penn State, Notre Dame, Auburn and Texas A&M stand out early on.

Oklahoma’s message was clear: “They want me to become a part of the Oklahoma defense. They kept stressing they want me.”

South Carolina could be tough to beat at this point for the 2023 four-star defensive end from Sumter, S.C., as Clemson and many others show interest as well but NC State made a case this weekend.

Rhames visited Raleigh and loved “the energy the whole place gave off.”

The Wolfpack should remain a contender in his recruitment.

Tennessee is making a run at the four-star LSU linebacker commit from Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips along with Georgia. Auburn is now in the picture much more as well. The coaching staff in Knoxville definitely stands out to him and the other SEC schools are making a case as well.

A return trip to Baton Rouge prior to Tolan’s final decision should happen as well, especially once a new coach is in place.

After backing off his pledge to West Virginia following a trip to Tennessee in recent weeks, the four-star running back from Dallas (Ga.) East Paulding was back in Knoxville this past weekend and had another great time.

“I’ll say they’re in a very good spot with me,” Williams said.

But the four-star will visit Auburn this weekend for the Iron Bowl.

Muncie, Ind. – The third-seeded Ohio volleyball team (12-18, 11-7 MAC) swept No. 6 Northern Illinois (16-13, 10-8 MAC) in the quarterfinal of the Mid-American Conference tournament. The score of the sets are as followed: 25-15, 25-23, 25-15.

The Bobcats set the tone in set one, leading the Huskies by 10 at the end of the set. Ohio achieved four runs of three or more points during the set and never allowed NIU the lead. The Bobcats hit .277 to the Huskies .028 and recorded 19 kills to their six.

The second set did not come as easy for Ohio, finishing the set with NIU only trailing by two. The Huskies worked their way back from multiple Bobcats runs, attempting to even the score. Despite NIU's efforts, Ohio came out on top to lead the match, 2-0.

The Bobcats jumped out to an early 4-1 lead in the set third, but the Huskies worked quickly to close the gap. The set was a battle between Ohio and NIU until the Bobcats went on a six-point run put Ohio up 23-13. After trading points, sophomore middle blocker Elizbeth Hoerlein (Mason, Ohio) tipped the ball to advance the Bobcats to the next round.

Ohio never once allowed the Huskies the led during the quarterfinal. Overall, the Bobcats hit .267 to NIU's .075 and collected over twice the amount of kills.

Individually, junior middle blocker Caitlin O'Farrell (Suwanee, Ga.) led the way, collected 15 kills while recording a .522 hitting percentage. O'Farrell also picked up seven block assists, four digs, and an ace. Hoerlein also had a strong performance, hitting a stellar .667 while pocketing 11 kills and three blocks (1 solo, 2 assist). Freshman outside hitter Caroline Clippard (Cincinnati, Ohio) followed with 12 kills and sophomore setter Tria McLean (Battle Creek, Neb.) tallied a match-high 47 assists. Defensively, sophomore Sam Steele (Omaha, Neb.) registered 21 digs, while junior Ciara Livingway added 14.

Up next, Ohio will take on No. 2 Bowling Green in the semi-final of the MAC tournament. The match will be played tomorrow (Nov. 22) at 7 P.M. in Worthen Arena and will be streamed on ESPN+.

The Georgia Apply to College initiative is a statewide campaign to provide all Georgia high school seniors with the opportunity to apply to college, providing additional assistance to first-generation college applicants and underrepresented students as they navigate the application process.

Across the district, Gwinnett high schools are conducting special events to help our seniors complete online applications. During the November college-going campaign, a number of Georgia colleges and universities waive application fees for high school seniors applying for enrollment for Fall 2022.

As high school students make their postsecondary plans, they have access to lots of great resources, including the Georgia Futures website and resources from College Board and ACT. GCPS students also have "The Choice Book," a high school planning guide that students receive early in their high school careers. The book includes key information to help student determine their four-year plan, including details on state and local promotion and graduation requirements, the HOPE Scholarship program, other learning opportunities, and postsecondary planning.

Remind the high school seniors in your life to put scholarship applications on the to-do list!

The GCPS Foundation Fund, Inc., is accepting applications from members of the GCPS Class of 2022 through Dec. 6. Find links to applications in the Foundation Scholarship Catalog. A list of other scholarships and their application deadlines also is available online.

The school Counseling Office is a great source of information as your student looks for scholarship opportunities that take into account his or her circumstances and strengths. Some scholarships reward academic achievement, community service, student leadership, or a specific interest or talent.
