One of the best ways to save money on your electrical needs is to have your home regularly inspected by a professional, licensed and insured electrician.
Have your home checked at least once per year to lessen the risk of suffering an emergency electrical problem.
Here are some tips to prevent serious electrical problems.
Always check to be sure you are not overloading outlets. Do not use extension cords on a permanent basis. They can become a source of fire and can cause serious damage.
Always use products that have the Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) seal. Stop using any appliance, outlet or fixture once it shows signs of damage. If you see frayed cords, exposed wires or sparks call stop using the product immediately.
If you notice a problem and ignore it, you put your home and family’s lives in jeopardy.
