​How to Prevent Electrical Problems this Winter

December is a popular time for electrical mishaps.  A lot of people spend time  at home after the holidays, which provides the perfect opportunity for playing with new electronic devices. Below are some tips that will help you avoid electrical problems this season.

Electronic Devices
The day after Christmas is the best time to use all of your new toys. If you received an electronic device, inspect it thoroughly for any damage prior to usage. Do not use any electronic device that looks damaged or has faulty wiring. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Electrical Safety Tips
Another major problem you can easily avoid is overloading circuits. To prevent a blown fuse, always leave one outlet open. In addition, never connect 3 incandescent lights together. It could start an electrical fire.
