Life Saving Smoke and Carbon Dioxide Detectors

Warning you of deadly hazards, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are essential devices that help keep you and your family safe at home. As colder weather is approaching and people will be spending more time indoors, it would be wise to take the opportunity to make sure they are working properly.

Research has found that fatalities often result from home fires that start late at night or early morning when residents are deep asleep. Noxious gases, such as carbon monoxide, can swiftly weaken a victim’s ability to concentrate, resulting in disorientation, confusion, and eventually death.

Emergency standby systems are usually equipped with automatic transfer switches. Manual transfer switches are available for certain systems, but downgrading to this won’t save much money.

3 Old Electrical Panels that Should be Replaced

Failures of electrical panels can result in dangerous electrical arcing between the circuit breaker and buss bar or from a circuit breaker’s failure to trip because of an overload. Either can lead to a build up of high temperatures and eventually a fire.

Many houses that were constructed from 1950 to 1980 typically had one of the following three brands of electrical panels: ITE Pushmatic, Zinsco and the most notorious, Federal Pacific Electric. Call an experienced and licensed electrician if your home has one of these still installed and replace it with a modern model to protect your home and family.
