Two Safety Tips for Your Electrical System

The safety of our home's electric system is often something we take for granted. From hitting a switch to illuminate your space, to plugging in and charging your devices, we rarely consider the currents coursing through our walls. However, to keep your family safe and your home secure, it's important to consider your electrical system, and whether or not your system is safe. 

Get to know your electrical system better – First and foremost, spend some time becoming more familiar with the home's electric system. Learn what runs on each circuit, and get to know the limits for each. Overloads can be dangerous, and electrical fires from overloads can do a lot of damage in a little amount of time. 

Don't overdo it with extension cords
 – Extension cords are great for reaching a little further with items like electric blowers or work lights, but it's important to remember to use them safely. Don't daisy chain multiple cords together, and don't use them for items that will pull more power than the extension cords are designed to handle. They can overheat, short and even be the cause of a house fire.~By Megan Belnap
