Electrical Services for Spas and Pools

Looking to add value to your home? Installing a spa or pool is a wonderful idea to add to your list. Plus, your backyard barbecues will be much more fun. The process of installing a pool or spa isn't something you can handle on your own, though. You will need a team of experienced electricians in Kershaw, SC to ensure your system is set up correctly. That way, you can enjoy your pool or spa for years to come, and it'll be in great working order when it's time to sell.

Why Do I Need an Electrical Contractor for Pool or Spa Installation?

Installing a pool or spa is a very involved job that includes more than digging out space for a pool or spa. These units are very complex and have a whole host of electrical needs, from heating units and filters to color-changing lights that wow your guests. Having a professional install these parts is vital. Otherwise, you'll be swimming in a dirty, near-freezing pool or spa.

Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors guarantees your pool or spa will be in proper working order for years and years.

EV Charging Station Installation

Finding a reliable EV charging station when you're out and about is still a gamble in this day and age. While EV charger availability is improving, most EV owners prefer to have a charging station installed at home. But doing so is easier said than done and often requires the help of a professional electrician.

Why Do I Need an Electrical Contractor for EV Charging Station Installation?

If you're like most homeowners, you don't have the proper permit to install your own EV charging station. For that reason alone, you need to rely on a pro who has the right tools and electrical know-how to handle the job. Plus, EV chargers need much more voltage than standard electrical systems you may find in your home. That makes installing these devices much more dangerous than average appliances. Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors to install your charging station ensures it's completed quickly, correctly, and safely.

Industrial electricians must deal with more complex electrical systems. These advanced systems often need different equipment and tools when repairs to industrial-grade elements are required. Unlike residential repairs, in industrial settings, electrical systems are usually custom-made for the facility and include unique parts with higher voltages than in the typical home.

Kershaw County residents fed up with speeding drivers

KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C (WACH) — Some people in Kershaw County say they are fed up with speeding drivers in their neighborhood.

"This is too much," said Bill Holland who lives off of Sanders Creek Road. "This is a hot spot for reckless driving in Kershaw County."

Holland and his wife Amanda have been living on Pine Road off of Sanders Creek Road for three years now and Holland says between Lockhart road and Sanders Creek Road there have been a number of incidents.

" My daughter got sideswiped about two to three miles from here and just before Christmas my wife and I got run off the road," said Holland.

Another resident who lives off of Sanders Creek Road says she's also experienced issues with the truck drivers speeding.

"I quickly learned that if I were walking on this road or trying to bike on this road that it is dangerous," said Shannon O'Lear. "The trucks they don't slow down or move over for pedestrians or bikers."

According to Kershaw County Coroner David West while there have been no deaths on Sanders Creek Road in the past two years, there have been at least three fatal wrecks on Lockhart Road.

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety reports more than 90 speeding citations from local law enforcement and more than 30 citations from Highway Patrol, on Lockhart Road.

Neighbors say many trucks drive on this road because of a logging company near by.

"The truckers are out to make a living and the faster they go the more they can do and so it's just trying to enforce the speed limit I don't know how you do that," said Lee Anschuetz who also lives off of Sanders Creek Road.

After getting multiple complaints , Kershaw County officials are coming together with residents to discuss how to make these roads safer.

On Wednesday morning, residents are going to be meeting with Kershaw County Sheriff Lee Boan.

"There are young children on the road driving and there are horse barns up and down this road, so we are just wanting to bring awareness," said Amanda Holland.

Sheriff Lee Boan tells us Kershaw County received a 98-thousand dollar grant for traffic enforcement and says this grant will allow them to have more officers focused on traffic and speeding.

As egg prices soar, some are considering grocery store alternatives

Eggs that used to be $2 a carton are now up to $4, and some are now considering grocery store alternatives.KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. — High egg prices might have you second-guessing the purchase."I'm very surprised that the eggs have gone up significantly," says Earl McClora.So, what's causing it?“When you look at the numbers that have been impacted by avian influenza, we’re above the numbers from the last major outbreak of 15-16," said Nathan Smith, Economist of Agribusiness for ...

Eggs that used to be $2 a carton are now up to $4, and some are now considering grocery store alternatives.

KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. — High egg prices might have you second-guessing the purchase.

"I'm very surprised that the eggs have gone up significantly," says Earl McClora.

So, what's causing it?

“When you look at the numbers that have been impacted by avian influenza, we’re above the numbers from the last major outbreak of 15-16," said Nathan Smith, Economist of Agribusiness for Clemson Extension. "That’s pushed prices up 60% over the previous year, but more than double the retail market.”

He says there a triple effect leading to sky-high prices.

“The main impact is avian influenza outbreaks that’s affected all flocks in terms of poultry," Smith said. "So, that combined with the seasonal increase in demand, we usually see two major time periods in the season or the year for eggs, one being the holidays at the end of the year and the other being in April during Easter.

Smith said inflation is the third and final cause for high prices.

Some shoppers we spoke with were shocked by the prices.

"They're outrageous," said Lydia Ruiz. Ruiz typically buys eggs from the grocery store but the high prices, have left her scrambled and looking for new options.

“I'm considering getting chickens, and I’ll get them here at Tractor Supply," Ruiz said. Tractor Supply is one of the most well-known places for chickens.

Others are getting eggs from friends and family, who already have them in their backyards.

“Normally, I'll buy them or I'll get them from a family friend who has a lot of chickens,” said Mandy Kelly.

B&P Farm Fresh Eggs has been selling eggs in the Elgin community for three years. With 300 chickens, they say they've seen an increase in business since store prices have soared.

“It kinda varies throughout the week, but we’ve been having to put them on a waiting list, it’s usually from 1-2 weeks," Boyd and Paul Pace said.

They take orders for eggs through their Facebook page, which they say has grown 300 people just in the last week alone, forcing them to now limit people to ordering 2 dozen max, until they finish expanding.

Many municipalities and counties have different rules per location on having hens or roosters.

The City of Columbia allows 4 hens, no roosters, and residents must have a permit from the city and pay annual inspection fees of $5 per bird.

A SC bill would require health insurance companies to cover the cost of hearing aids

GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A SC bill would require health insurance companies to cover the cost of hearing aidsSharon Ramsey says without assistance her 18-year-old daughter, Emily, can’t hear much.“She wouldn’t hear the leaves on the trees or rain,” Sharon Ramsey said. “That was one of the first things she noticed when she had the hearing aids.”At the age of four Emily was diagnosed with moderate hearing loss.“There would be times when I was surrounded by friends a...

GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A SC bill would require health insurance companies to cover the cost of hearing aids

Sharon Ramsey says without assistance her 18-year-old daughter, Emily, can’t hear much.

“She wouldn’t hear the leaves on the trees or rain,” Sharon Ramsey said. “That was one of the first things she noticed when she had the hearing aids.”

At the age of four Emily was diagnosed with moderate hearing loss.

“There would be times when I was surrounded by friends and family, but I couldn’t really understand what was going on,” Emily Ramsey said. “It’s very isolating.”

Thanks to hearing aids she can interact with others and participate in school. But these devices are not cheap.

“The last hearing set for Emily was about $4,500,” Sharon said.

In this case they were luckily, for the first time in their lives they had an insurance plan that covered part of that cost. But not for her other child Jacob.

“We tried to get him covered too and they said you only get one set, so they completely denied him,” Sharon said. “He has his original set from when he was 4.”

Sharon says her son is now 15 and still using a pediatric pair of hearing aids because they can’t afford the cost of a new one. A new state legislative bill could help change that. It would require insurance companies to pay up to $2,500 per hearing aid per individual. Audiologist Dr. Kristin Davis is the owner of Davis Audiology, which spans across three locations in the Upstate. She says some of her patients have delayed getting hearing aids due to the cost.

“Sometimes patients or parents have to make choices prioritizing where their finances are going to go,” Davis said.

She says this delay or absence of care can affect their health and livelihood.

“Their hearing levels won’t necessarily get worse, but their speech understanding absolutely can decline,” Davis said. “This overall can affect cognitive and educational outcomes and earning potential for young people.”

The bill would require health insurance to pay for the cost of replacing hearing aids every four years.

Emily is due for new hearing aids in the next year. She worries about the cost as she enters college and eventually a career. She says without the devices she can’t do much.

“I wouldn’t be able to work or go to school because I wouldn’t be able to hear anything,” Emily said. “So this is a big deal.”

Sen. Penry Gustafson from Kershaw County is one of the authors of the bill. She says she personally has hearing loss in her right ear. Due to costs she never got hearing aids until the age of 40.

“I spent my whole childhood sitting in the front row, reading lips and just missing out on things.”

Gustafson doesn’t want other families to miss out due to cost. Right now the bill specifies people 26 and under for coverage, but Gustafon says that this bill should cover everyone and they plan to tweak that part of the bill.
