Home Electrical Safety Tips for Fall – Part 1

Fall is coming soon, and now is a good time to schedule an electrical safety inspection to help ensure the safety of your home before the holiday season brings the greatest risk of electrical fire. Licensed electricians will inspect each room and space in your house and perform electrical repairs wherever they find something unsafe or not up to code. At the end of this thorough process, you and your family will have electrical peace of mind. The following are eight tips for electrical safety for your indoor and outdoor areas this fall.

Clutter Removal

Flammable objects must be kept a safe distance away from indoor and outdoor electrical fixtures. Outlets being used may generate sparks that will ignite items like clothing, papers, or curtains, resulting in a fire. Fixtures that are located outdoors may be surrounded by branches, leaves, and trash carried by wind in the fall.

Damaged Wiring

A regular electrical safety inspection of wiring is even more crucial in older homes. Years of wear and tear lead to wire coating becoming brittle and broken, becoming fire hazards. Older homes have a greater chance of having faulty wiring, and an examination of the electrical system by a licensed electrician is essential for your safety.

Electrical Lines

An outdoor DIY project that will use electrical lines and extension cords will require more caution during the fall, especially in regions where there is a change of seasons. Leaves and branches lying on the ground are a fire hazard, and wiring should be kept clear of these flammable items.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI)

Automatically shutting off electricity, GFCIs decrease the chances of electrical shock and fires. A ground fault circuit interrupter is typically installed in rooms where electricity and water may make contact, such as kitchens and bathrooms. A licensed electrician can test that your GFCIs are working properly or install them where they are needed to keep your family safe.

Part 2 will discuss four more home electrical safety tips for fall.

Does Your Home Need a Heavy-Up?

You might need a heavy-up if your home was built more than 30 years ago. Basically, a heavy-up will raise amperage entering the home through its electrical service panel to allow its system to manage a greater load. Some older homes will also need an electrical system upgrade to meet modern demands. When older homes were constructed, many devices did not yet exist, appliances were smaller, and homes consumed much less electricity.
