When watching the news, there seems to be an increase in home and commercial building fires that are a result of an electrical issue. Your friends at Top Flight Electric want to help you prevent this from happening to you. If you haven’t done so, please contact us to conduct an electrical safety inspection of your home or business. We will send our residential electrician/commercial electrician out to conduct a thorough evaluation.
In the meantime, we are happy to provide you with some valuable information on how to keep your family and business safe. Let’s continue our series discussing important electrical safety tips as recommended by our licensed electrician.
Use the Correct Circuit Breakers and Fuses
Circuit breakers and fuses should be the correct size and wattage for the application(s) for which they are being used. If not, they will fail and could cause problems that lead to a much bigger headache. Our commercial electrician/residential electrician will check your circuit breakers and fuses during your electrical safety inspection.
Replace Damaged Wall Plates
Wall plates for electrical outlets and switches are there for more than decoration, they serve a very important purpose. They cover the exposed wires near the outlet and switch, thus preventing them from accidental contact by a child, pet, or even someone trying to turn on a light in a dark room. When a wall plate becomes damaged or broken, it should be replaced immediately.
