How To Prevent Electrical Problems During The Holidays

The holiday season is here. There will be lots of sparkling lights and holiday themed electronics! When using these electrical devices, it is important to use caution. Below are some tips to help you avoid electrical problems this season.

  • Do your best to opt for non-electric holiday decorations.
  • Try to hang less lights this year. It will decrease the likelihood of electrical issues.
  • Before you plug any lights in, be sure to check them for frays. If they are damaged, do not use them.
  • Utilize low wattage lights like LED lights, instead of incandescent lights.
  • Never put all of your holiday lights into the same circuit. They should be dispersed among multiple circuits.
  • Remember to place holiday decorations far away from heat generating appliances and open flames.
  • Make sure your tree has enough water. After all, a dehydrated tree with lights on it can catch fire.
