Not just a simple nightlight, this attractive hallway light with bottom outlet mounts in a standard single gang box with an LED light. The Trademaster Decorator Nightlight with One Outlet adds an extra measure of safety and security to walkways, hallways, stairwells and children's bedrooms. The built-in sensor automatically turns the light ON in the dark. The Trademaster Hallway Light features an energy-efficient ¼ watt LED that, on average, lasts more than 40 years. The hallway light also features an impact resistant face and body that installs quickly with side or back wire and mounts in a standard single gang box. Or a full Trademaster Decorator Nightlight that blends in, instead of standing out.
Many times I am asked about compact fluorescent lamps (cfls). Here are some of the questions I receive. Do they save money? Yes, they do save you money. If you use a 60 watt incandescent and replace it with a 13 watt CFL, do the math and you will see the savings. Even with the initial cost of the CFL, there is still a big savings.

Metro Utilities is moving from their current location to their new property in Elk River, MN. Metro Utilities is a utility excavating and installation company that does their work primarily on commercial and industrial building, school and large retail properties. The new property came with a building that had a service, a few receptacles and two outdoor spots in the ceiling. We completed the first phase of the electrical in this building, which included low-bay light fixtures to properly illuminate the building, security lighting and some more receptacles for specialty reasons. Phase two will come later this summer with the addition of an office, bathroom and mechanical room. View some images of the work, click here.
Congress directed the FCC to allocate a 3 digit number to allow persons to reach the sixty plus one call centers in the United States. The one call center is who you can contact to have your primary utilities located. In Minnesota, it is a free service provided so when you dig or trench, you do not hit electric, gas or phone lines. This new number does not replace the old phone numbers but makes it easier to remember a number to contact them. The new 811 number is in use now and more phone providers are being added. It does not save time to use this number, as there are two more steps required to get to the queue pool if you are using a cell phone.
