My smoke detector keeps chirping. What does this mean?

This could mean one of two things.

  • An intermittent chirp is probably an indication of a defective smoke detector.
  • A consistent chirp is probably an indication of a low battery condition and the smoke detector requires a new battery.
Why do the bulbs in my exterior fixture burn out so often?

This is usually caused by several factors.

  1. Use of non-brand named bulbs.
  2. Larger wattage bulbs, which cause excessive heat build-up shorting the life of the
  3. Power Surges.
When my air conditioner cycles on, I notice my lights blink. Is this normal?

Yes. This is a common occurrence when large motor/compressor loads start. These
devices cause a minor momentary voltage drop, demonstrating itself as the blinking in
your lights. This has no negative effect on the electrical equipment within your house.

If I have problems with TV or telephone wiring within the house, whom should I call?

With deregulation of the utility companies in most areas of the country, the cable or
telephone companies are no longer responsible for the equipment or wiring in your

home. This responsibility has fallen to you and your electrical contractor. Therefore,
when a problem arises, we recommend you us. Most TV and telephone utilities will still
service within your home for a substantial fee. This service, as in the past, is no longer

Why does my recess can light cycle on and off since I put a larger wattage bulb in?

Modern Recess Cans are rated for a maximum wattage bulb and are equipped with a
thermal device that does not allow a bulb larger than that rating. If a larger wattage bulb is used, as the excess heat builds up, the thermal device will shut the can off until it
cools. This is a safety device to protect your home against fire.

I have a 110 Volt Outlet on the Exterior of My Home. Can I Plug my Christmas Lights into It?

Yes. Within reason, if the quantity of lights creates a load greater than the capacity of
the circuit breaker, the breaker will trip off. In this event, additional circuits may be
required to accommodate your holiday display.

If I have surge/lightning protection on my main service should I use point-of-use surge plugins at my TV, stereo, computer, etc.?

Yes. Main line surge is no absolute guarantee and any additional surge protection down
stream in the system offers a greater level of protection; though, nothing is absolute
when it comes to the power of Mother Nature.

I have surge/lightning protection on my home. Am I totally safe from lightning strikes?

No. Surge/Lightning Protection only offers additional levels of protection. Nothing can
guarantee completely against Mother Nature and where she chooses to strike.

Can I plug any 110-volt device I wish into my regular 110-volt outlets throughout my house?

Yes. Though, if the device exceeds the capacity of the circuit, the breaker will trip off.

Can I plug my coffee pot and toaster oven into the same kitchen counter outlet?

Yes. Though, if the two loads exceed 20amps, your breaker will sense overload, do its job, and trip off. Under this condition, you must plug one of the appliances into a different kitchen outlet on a different circuit, in order to balance the load.

I have a new home. Why does my refrigerator or freezer, located in my garage, keep going off?

Unless you made provisions with the builder for a dedicated circuit, the outlets in your garage are GFCI Protected per National Electrical Code. This device will not tolerate the additional resistance load created by refrigeration equipment. The GFCI senses there is a fault, and therefore trips off. The only cure to this problem is to provide a dedicated, non-GFCI circuit allowable by code.

Can I dim fluorescent lights?

Yes. Dimming fluorescent requires not only a special dimmer, but also special fixtures. You cannot place a typical incandescent dimmer on existing fluorescent.

Can I hang a ceiling fan where a light is?

Yes, but first you must make sure the electrical box is properly braced and rated for the weight and torque of the ceiling fan you are installing.

What does it mean when my fluorescent lights are flickering or cycling on and off?

Flickering may indicate impending bulb failure, minor power fluctuation, and/or improperly installed bulbs. Cycling on and off is usually a clear indication of ballast and/or bulb failure. It is recommended when replacing a ballast to replace bulbs as well.

How do I reset my breaker when it has tripped off?

First, disconnect any additional devices that may have caused the breaker to overload and trip. Breakers are mechanical devices and must be turned all the way off before turning back on. Remember this is a mechanical device, so this may require several attempts. If this fails to reset the breaker, there may be a more serious problem. Call Gallo Electric.
