Let Our Electricians Protect Your Home from Electrical Hazards
Electricity isn’t something that you should ever take lightly. Electrical wiring is the second leading cause of home fires, behind cooking accidents, and is the number one cause of fire related home damage. Our Walnut Creek electricians want to make sure that your family is safe so, we’ve put together a home safety checklist.
Check all cords to make sure they are not frayed or cracked and are placed out of high-traffic areas. Cords should never be nailed or stapled to the walls or baseboards because the coating can be damaged through constant rubbing. Also, do not place cords under carpets or rugs or rest any furniture on them.
Always check the wattage of all bulbs in light fixtures to make sure they are the correct wattage for the size of the fixture. Replace bulbs that have higher wattage than recommended. If you don’t know the correct wattage, refer to the packaging. New compact fluorescents often show a standard wattage comparison.
Circuit breakers/fuses should be the correct size current rating for their circuit. If you do not know the correct size, have an electrician identify and label the size to be used. Always replace a fuse with the same size fuse. Using an incorrect fuse size can cause the electrical grid to short and cause a fire.
Make sure you use surge protectors on electronic devices to prevent damage from lightning strikes or other major electrical surges.
Use ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) in any area that may be prone to flooding. They can help prevent electrocution by shutting down electrical flow to any appliance that is in direct contact with water. It interrupts power fast enough to help prevent serious injury from electrical shock. Our Walnut Creek electricians suggest you test your GFCIs regularly, according to the manufacturer’s instructions to make sure they are working properly.
