Electrical Safety Tips for the Holiday Season

 

With the holiday season approaching, many Arizona homeowners will be busy beautifying their homes and yards with twinkle lights and other decorations. In all of the excitement over the holiday season, important safety concerns are sometimes overlooked. When unsafe conditions are created from overloading an electrical outlet, not using outdoor plugs for yard decorations or any other number of electrical mistakes, significant damage can be done.

To avoid a fire or other damage from occurring at your home this holiday season, contact your provider of electrical services in Phoenix and consider the following electrical safety tips:

  • Before decorating, inspect all plugs on lights and other decorations for frayed wires. Also check your home for broken sockets or loose connections. Throw away all damaged decorations and contact a provider of electrical services in Phoenix to make any necessary repairs.
  • All burnt out light bulbs on a strand should be replaced with a bulb of the correct wattage, which should be listed on the package. A bulb of the wrong size and wattage can cause overheating in the socket.
  • When decorating outdoors, make sure you select a package of lights that is made specifically to withstand conditions, such as rain and snow.
  • Keep lights 10 feet away from all power lines or feeder lines when decorating outside your house and yard areas.
  • Always use plastic or insulated holders or hooks to safely hang lights. Avoid using nails, tacks or staples.
  • Use proper extension cords. Outdoor rated cords can be used both outdoors and indoors, but indoor specific cords should never be used outdoors. Also make sure the extension cord is the correct size for your decoration needs as an overloaded extension cord can reach temperatures hot enough to start a fire.
  • To avoid overheating and other accidents, extension cords should never run under carpets or rugs.
  • Homeowners tend to overload outlets during the holidays. To determine how many lights you can safely string together, find out the wattage for each bulb. Multiply the wattage number by the total number of lights. For safety, the maximum number should be no more than 1400.
  • A circuit breaker that constantly trips is either overloaded or needs to be replaced. Contact a provider of electrical services in Phoenix to take a closer look.
  • Always turn off lights and decorations before leaving your home for an extended period or going to sleep for the night.

For all electrical services in Phoenix this holiday season, contact G&S Electric, a licensed and insured Arizona electrical contracting company.

Do You Need Electrical Upgrades?

Although the typical homeowner would prefer to avoid a rewiring job or electrical system upgrade, an outdated electrical system can reduce the value of your home, be a safety hazard and even cause damage. If you have observed any warning signs that may identify wiring damage or need to upgrade your electrical system to keep your house up-do-date, the residential electricians in Phoenix of G & S Electric are here to help.

In our experience as industrial, commercial and residential electricians of Phoenix, customers frequently request an electrical system upgrade for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Insufficient Power: Whereas modern day homes often use a 100-amp or 200-amp electrical service panel to power devices, older homes only operated on a 60-amp panel. The energy output of a 60-amp panel is too low to power modern appliances, AC units and more, causing an inconvenience to home owners and demanding a system upgrade.
  • Safety Concerns: Smoldering, arcing, damaged wiring and improper wiring can all cause fires. Fires accounted for $11.6 billion in property damage during 2010 according to the National Fire Protection Association, house fires alone are responsible for $1.5 billion of the damages.
  • Opportune Timing: Clients planning a home remodel will often rewire or upgrade an electrical system since major construction is already taking place, eliminating the need to open walls just for the rewire and decreasing the overall cost of the project.

When considering your electrical needs to determine if an upgrade is necessary, think of both current and future needs. Increased energy demands from new family members, home expansions or additional appliances. Structured wiring not only ensures your home can handle current and future energy demands, but it also increases the value of home. No matter your reason for electrical upgrades, the residential electricians in Phoenix at G & S Electric possess the knowledge and skill to handle any project. Call G & S Electric at (602) 493-1135 or contact us online with any questions or to schedule a home wiring inspection.

Reducing Energy Costs at Home

The official start of summer is still two months away, but temperatures in the desert are already starting to rise and with them, the cost of your home’s electrical bill. Energy usage during the summer months is typically higher than the rest of the year. Luckily there are some steps that you can take to reduce your usage, resulting in some big savings on your bill. Here are some valuable tips from the experienced electricians at G & S Electric on reducing energy costs at home:

  • Unplug unused devices – devices that stay plugged in to the wall when turned off still draw a small amount of energy, costing the average American household loses up to $200 a year in wasted electricity.
  • Use computers sleep mode – when your computer is not in use, activate the sleep or hibernate mode. Sleep modes can save up to 90% of energy used if the computer were left on. To save even more electricity, completely power down the computer and unplug it when not in use.
  • Turn lights off – encourage those living in your home to turn off electronics and lights when leaving a room. Before leaving the house make a quick walkthrough to check that all lights have been turned off.
  • Control the temperature – during summer it is recommended to keep the thermostat set around 78 degrees. Adding blinds to windows and sliding glass doors will aid in insulating the home from outside heat.

Reducing your energy usage during the summer is easy and can result in big savings on your energy bill. Every kilowatt-hour saved equals about 10 cents, so saving more means more money in your pocket. For more tips on reducing your electric bill contact G & S Electric at 602-493-1135.
