We had four final tasks left for the electrician before we could say “done and satisfied”.
They were just annoying little items that the electrician could do faster and better than we could.
No. 1 – Change out an outlet in the kitchen that the inspector discovered could not actually be plugged into. (I was careful to check all the other outlets to make sure they could be used.)
No.2 – Change the center light over the sink in the peninsula (again) due to a crack in the globe.
Now be careful everyone because these lights hang low and they are fragile.
No. 3 – Replace the smoke detector from the basement which was chirping in a pattern to tell us it was faulty. (Yes, I changed out the battery and that was not the issue — wrong chirping pattern.)
No. 4 – Replace the two AFCI breakers with traditional breakers. These stupid AFCI’s clip off the minute your back is turned seemingly for no reason.
Until they have perfected them we’re done with them.
So it appears that all our electric is working order and we have lots of light everywhere. Thank you and keep the lights on, Sparky. (I can highly recommend our electricians found here.)
Is there something in your house that’s not working correctly? Are you waiting to call the pro until you have a list of things?
