Three Ways To Prevent Electrical Fires


in the home are 100 percent preventable. Here’s how to rid your home of the most common culprits:


T


Extension cords. These handy wire- stretchers are not designed for continuous use. Too many homeowners use extension cords year-round, and that can cause them to overheat. An overheated cord is a fire hazard.


If you don’t have enough outlets, or if your heart is set on locating a lamp out of reach, have an electrician install additional outlets, including one closer to the lamp.


 Old wiring and outlets. If your home is more than 20 years old, a hazard could lurk behind its walls.


The electrical systems in older homes were designed to handle less activity. Overloading that system can trigger a fire. Likewise, electrical components


don’t last forever. If yours are deteriorating, it’s time to replace them.


Finally, older homes have few grounded outlets. All outlets in every room that has water or that gets wet—bathrooms, kitchens, basements, garages and laundry rooms, for instance—need ground-fault circuit interrupters. Adding them is a job for a professional electrician.


 Overloaded outlets. Plugging too many appliances, lamps and electronics into a single outlet can overheat the wires and the outlets. That can lead to a fire.


If your circuits are tripping often, that’s a sure sign that something iS wrong. Call a pro.

Energy Efficiency Tip of the Month


Is your room air conditioner working overtime? Reduce air leaks by installing rigid foam panels (instead of the commonly used accordion panels) in between the window frame and unit, and secure with duct tape.
