COVID-19 FAQ for Electricians

  • What safety precautions is Dynamo Electric taking?
    We follow the local and federal guidelines to ensure everyone’s health and safety. We require our technicians to wear masks, use hand sanitizer, and maintain safe social distance from customers.
  • Does Dynamo Electric offer virtual consultations?
    Yes, we are happy to discuss your electric needs with an initial phone or video call. We understand that you may prefer to conduct as much of the process as possible remotely. Please call us for a free estimate at 410-296-8887.
  • If technicians come to my house or office, do I need to wear a mask?
    Our technicians will be wearing masks, and we encourage you to wear one as well, especially for indoor electrical services.
  • What does Dynamo Electric do if one of your technicians is sick?
    Any employee who has symptoms is asked to stay home.
  • Do your technicians get tested for COVID-19?
    If a technician has symptoms that are typical of this virus, then they may get tested. However, we do not require all of our technicians to get tested. Due to the length of time it takes to receive test results, we know that the technicians would be serving more people during that waiting period, rendering the test results moot.
  • What should I do if Dynamo Electric is scheduled to come to my house or office for an electrical job, but someone here is sick or potentially has COVID-19?
    We would appreciate it if you notify us in advance. We would be happy to reschedule the appointment once that person has recovered and/or tested negative.

We understand that each situation is unique, and our goal is to serve every customer as safely and effectively as possible. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at 410-296-8887.

Carbon Monoxide Alarm Law for Baltimore County Rentals

The National Fire Protection Association estimates that each year about 300 people in the U.S. die from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a common byproduct of incomplete combustion, produced when fuels such as oil, gas, coal, and wood are burned. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas. When CO goes undetected, it can be deadly.

Carbon Monoxide Alarm Required for Rentals

If you’re the property owner of a rental in Baltimore County, do you know about the carbon monoxide alarm policy? The Livability Code that applies to rental housing requires owners to install carbon monoxide detectors in the common areas outside of each sleeping area. According to the Carbon Monoxide Alarm Law of Baltimore County (BCC 35-5-213.1), which is enforced by the County’s Code Enforcement bureau, CO detectors must be installed in all rental properties that use fossil fuels for heat, ventilation, hot water, or appliance operation.

The CO alarms must be installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ specifications. The detectors may be hardwired with battery backup; plugged into an electrical outlet not controlled by a switch, with battery backup; or battery powered. Property owners must submit a Carbon Monoxide Alarm Verification Form that is signed by them and the tenant and submitted to Baltimore County Rental Housing Registration.

Get CO Code Compliant

Dynamo Electric has the expertise to provide and install the CO detectors needed to comply with the regulations. We can help you install a combination smoke / carbon monoxide detector so you and your tenants can live at ease. Contact us to learn more about or check out our services for Property Management.
