Safety is Our #1 Priority!

At Sloan Service Company, we understand there are a lot of things in your home that needs to be checked and fixed, replaced and reconfigured.  We are here to help!  Give us a call anytime for a whole home preventative maintenance check.

Consider An Electrical Inspection the “Wellness Check” for Your Home

We will be checking things such as your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, the integrity of your receptacles,  your home’s general lightning safety, etc.  If we find anything that needs to be fixed or replaced, we’ll do it for you at a discounted price!  This “wellness check” will save you time and money, as it greatly reduces your chances of something breaking or causing extensive damage to your home.

Smoke Detectors

We’re all guilty of it; ignoring that little round disk on the ceiling until it starts beeping at us to change the battery.  But smoke detectors are incredibly important for our safety!  If a fire starts while you’re sleeping or on the opposite side of the house, the damage to your health and your house could be irreparable without early detection and warning.

Smoke detector placement in your home is vital for optimal safety.  As a general rule, you want a detector in each bedroom, outside of all sleeping areas, and on each level of the home.  They should be tested each month and replaced every ten years.

Carbon Monoxide Sensors

We’re all guilty of it; ignoring that little round disk on the ceiling until it starts beeping at us to change the battery.  But smoke detectors are incredibly important for our safety!  If a fire starts while you’re sleeping or on the opposite side of the house, the damage to your health and your house could be irreparable without early detection and warning.

AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interupter)

An arc fault is a current of electricity flowing through an unplanned path. Just imagine two exposed wires with a flow of electricity arcing between them. This has its obvious safety concerns, with the top two being electrocution and fire.

An Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) is designed to detect arcing electrical faults, which in turn helps reduce the chances of that arc being the source of damage to your home.

GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is very different from an AFCI.  Where an AFCI is used for detection, a GFCI is used for protection.  If an appliance or tool becomes energized from a ground fault, the GFCI will cut the electric power off, reducing, if not eliminating, the event of electric shock. The AFCI and GFCI can be used separately or in conjunction with one another.
