7 Reasons That You May Need An Electrician

7 Reasons That You May Need An Electrician
Listen to the show here.

Our electrical expert today’s resume reads like an educational and project Who's Who! Theodore Gould Towns, Ph.D. is not "just an electrician," he is also an author and Doctor of Physical Chemistry. He has worked on research and development for Applied Isotope Dilution Methodology and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry. This is way beyond the ken of the Techno Granny Show but he has an ongoing contract for electrical renovations and repairs to a 150 year old, 65,000 SF building: Eastminster Church, that operates seven days a week. His latest endeavor is as a master electrician who knows how to keep your structures and your family electrically safe.

Theodore did his post-doctoral work at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA; USA Rock Island Arsenal, Rock Island, IL; Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA; and Howard University, Washington, DC. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia, Athens in Physical Chemistry . He received his B.S. in Chemistry (cum Laude) from Tennessee State University, Nashville.

Licenses & Certifications: Pittsburgh Electrician (E); Red Cross Adult CPR & AED

Thedore is currently employed with Eclectic Electrons Electrical Services where he provides residential and commercial remodeling and repair services. He has also worked with Bidwell Training Center, Inc. and PPG Industries, Inc.

You probably need an electrician if:

1. your dwelling has more than one bedroom and is supplied through a fuse box. Fuse boxes themselves are not inherently dangerous; they are just so inconvenient that they invite over-fusing or circumventing, e.g. replacing a blown 20A fuse with a new 30A fuse or even worse, with a penny. That is the primary, historically demonstrated danger.

2. the plug on your new (replacement) clothes dryer does not fit the old (existing) socket. Sometimes you need an entirely new type of outlet.

3. there is no outlet where you have electrical device(s).

4. you cannot turn on the (hall) lights from each end of the stairwell.

5. your garbage disposal is plugged into a counter top outlet.

6. you have ceiling lights (or other devices) powered through extension cords to other rooms.

7. sparks fly when you turn something on or plug it in.
