Electrical Safety Tips

1) Have your home electrical system thoroughly inspected by qualified electricians to ensure that all electrical work in the home meets the safety provisions in the NEC.
2) Ask a qualified electrician if your home would benefit from AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter: protects against fires caused by arcing faults protection) especially during inspections of older homes or upgrades to electrical systems.
3) Use light bulbs that match the recommended wattage on the light fixture.
In homes with young children, install tamper resistant receptacles to prevent electrical shocks and burns.
4) Conduct a basic assessment of your home electrical system, electrical cords, extension cords, power plugs, and outlets.
5) Look for telltale signs of electrical problems such as dim and flickering lights, unusual sizzling and buzzing sounds from your electrical system, insulation and circuit breakers that trip repeatedly.
6) Use extension cords only temporarily, and never with space heaters or air conditioners.
7) Avoid overloading outlets. Consider having additional circuits or outlets added by a qualified electrician as needed.

  • Mike’s Plumbing was able to come out the same day and put in a new hot water heater. They are professional on the phone, sent a pic of the person would be the one to do the work, called when the technician was on the way, and brought quality … More parts, and did an excellent installation. They also have great technology with appointments and even a credit line you can apply for to pay over time. We didn’t use that credit part of their offerings. Excellent! Thank you!
