What Does Our Monroe Electrician Recommend?Power outages don’t just occur during storms. They can occur at any time when your home’s electricity is overwhelmed, even during a bright sunny day. Here are 3 safety tips to keep you and your family secure:
- Check Fuses and Circuit Breakers: Check your main fuses or circuit breakers to see if they have blown or tripped. Sometimes power outages can due to circuit breakers being unable to deal with an overwhelming amount of electricity. If you think your fuse or circuit breaker won’t be able to hold up, call a Monroe electrician immediately.
- Cover Outlets: If your home is populated with naturally curious young children and pets, then please cover your outlets. Plastic covering that’s hard to remove is your best bet for top-notch electrical safety. An uncovered outlet is incredibly hazard and can lead to varying degrees of electric shock. This is an important step to take when you’re doing your best to keep your children from harm.
- Keep Candles and Flashlights: Having candles and flashlights on hand is always a good idea, especially if you don’t have a standby generator. Sometimes, you have to do things the old fashioned way. Candles and flashlights provide light free of charge and are perfect if you have to leave your home in the event.
