Simple Home Safety

Home safety is a top priority for all homeowners. Outdoor lighting for your home is a simple measure you can take to add an extra layer of security to your home. Outdoor motion sensor lights literally brighten your home and paths to safety. Do your kids leave toys, bikes, or scooters in the driveway? Prevent a fall with outdoor motion sensor lights. What about unwanted critters that only come out at night? Outdoor motion sensor lights can help deter them from making your home their home.

Installing the Flood Lights
We always recommend contacting a licensed, professional electrician to perform any work. They will ensure the work is done safely, up to code, waterproof and will last for years to come.

Homeowners also opt to have multiple sensor lights surrounding their home. Why might this be beneficial? Well, multiple sensors can light up when an intruder is lurking around your home or again, unwanted nighttime critters. Hiring a licensed electrician will give you peace of mind and confidence that your lights will always be working.

But How Do They Work?
Think of a motion sensor like a small, electronic eye. This small eye measures heat waves that radiate from moving objects. Humans, animals, and vehicles give off heat waves resulting in the lights turning on. Why is measuring by heat waves better? Well, you wouldn’t want your lights turning on every time a leaf fell from the tree, or it rains or snows. The lights can stay on from one minute to 20 minutes, it all depends on how long you set the times for and the detector can reach up to 70 feet.

Of course, there are times the lights will turn on mysteriously or whenever a moving object is in its path, but when you hire an electrician the likelihood of that is far less than if you were to install them yourself.

Whether you live in a well-lit neighborhood or more rural area, you and your home can benefit from motion sensor lights. If you’re looking for a professional to install your motion sensor lights or have other electrical needs, call us at (815) 444-0979 or contact us online to learn more.

Axberg Reviews
Tuesday, 9/7/2017, We asked Axberg to come and replace some rusting vent pipe and perform maintenance on our furnace. Axberg replaced the vent pipe, cleaned the furnace, then tells us the heat exchanger is cracked and the furnace should be replaced. Axberg was supposed to send a picture of the cracked heat exchanger but didn’t. Wednesday,9/8/2017, I called the Axberg office and tried to explain why I wasn’t happy with the service. Basically, Axberg charges top dollar and in return I expect them to work smart. Smart is not checking the heat exchanger last! I wanted a break on $444 of useless work performed on the furnace. Axberg wouldn’t budge. I pointed out that now my furnace doesn’t work at all and Axberg still wouldn’t budge. Axberg suggested that if spent more money on my furnace to fix the items identified on their invoice then the furnace would work. At this point, I don’t trust their judgment or customer service. Later Wednesday 9/8/2017, I called another local company for a second opinion. My furnace doesn’t work because Axberg forgot to attach the hose to the pressure switch. I get this fact in writing. Made arrangements for a new furnace install next day. Thursday, 9/9/2017. New furnace installed, not by Axberg. Nice. Called my credit card company to dispute the bill from Axberg. Called Axberg again and this time they at least seemed willing to escalate to a supervisor. I understand that sometimes things go wrong and am waiting to see if Axberg is willing to make this right.
