Keep Your Home Electrically Safe During Winter – Part 1

Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) studies have found that the sales of electrical devices jump markedly during December. This significant growth in the number of electrical products, along with the cooler temperatures in much of the nation, increases the probability of electrical fires, injuries, and deaths. According to other studies, more than 40% of fire deaths happen during the winter season, and the kitchen is where more than half of home fires start.

It is important to perform several easy electrical appliance and device checkups to ensure that they are functioning normally and your home and family are safe from electrical danger. We also recommend that you call an experienced licensed electrician and request a thorough electrical inspection of your home so that you and your family will have peace of mind during winter.

A GFCI is a rapidly activated circuit breaker that can shut off electric power when there’s ground-fault in 1/40th of a second. It functions by measuring the amount of current traveling to and from equipment along the circuit conductors. If their amounts differ by about five milliamperes, the GFCI will interrupt the current.
