How To Prevent Electrical Fires
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, more than 25,000 electrical fires are reported in the United States each year. These electrical fires lead to the injury or death of 1,300 people. At TFC Electric, your safety is our number one priority. Below are some steps you can take to drastically reduce the risk of an electrical fire.
Don’t Overload Electrical Sockets
Have you ever plugged too many appliances into the same outlet? Overburdening electrical sockets can cause an electrical fire. Buying a power strip with internal overload protection can prevent this from happening.
New Electrical Wiring
you have an older home? If so, it probably has old electrical wiring to
match. The electrical wiring from 30 years ago was not intended to
handle the amount of power we use today. If your electrical wiring is
over the hill, it’s time for new wiring.
Have An Electrical Inspection
Can’t remember when your last electrical inspection was? Just bought a home? Both of these are good reasons to get an electrical inspection.
