You are important to us. Electrical danger is not an option!
Electrical outlets and old, outdated appliances
• Never use an appliance with a worn or frayed cord.
Light fixtures, lamps, and light bulbs
• Do not install light bulbs with a wattage that is too high. Always check maximum watts on fixtures and lamps.
Misuse of extension cords
• They are meant only for temporary measures. Appliances should be plugged directly into an outlet. Hire an electrician to install new outlets if necessary.
• Do not put them too close to curtains, beds, or clothing. Coil heaters are especially dangerous!
• This is the area which most needs our attention. If a home is over twenty years old, it most definitely does not have proper wiring capacity.
• Circuit breakers and fuses blowing repeatedly
• Dimming and flickering lights when something else is switched on
• Sizzling or buzzing sounds from the electrical system
• A burning smell coming from appliances
• Discolored wall outlets
• Sparking outlets
• Outlets or switches that are hot to the touch
