Electrical Safety Questionnaire

8/14/2019 (Permalink)

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, hire a certified electrician to inspect your home and to potentially update your electrical system:

  • Before plugging in an appliance, do you first unplug another appliance to prevent tripping a circuit breaker or blowing a fuse?
  • Because you don’t have enough outlets, do you run multiple extension cords or plug multiple cords into a single outlet?
  • ïDo your lights dim when you use certain appliances?
  • Are your small appliances like toasters or irons slow to heat?
  • Because you don’t have enough three- or four-way light switches, do you enter rooms and stairways in darkness?
  • Are your furniture arrangements limited because your electrical outlets are limited?

The name of the prevention game for electrical fires: don’t overload, don’t use old, don’t abuse your electrical cords, plugs, and outlets. You don’t want to experience the subsequent fire damage following an electrical fire. A qualified, licensed electrician can help you increase the capacity of your home’s electrical service or add new branch circuits, increasing the number of outlets and decreasing your furniture arrangements to accommodate a limited number of outlets.
