Electrical Safety Hazards at Home

How a Quality Electrical Service Can Protect Us from Electricity-Related Injuries in Our Home

If you experience a major problem with your electrical system, you may be tempted to book an electrical service and get your wiring renovated. But what happens if you do not notice any obvious signs of trouble? You usually wait until evident signs of an electrical issue – and that is when it may be already too late to fix this issue on a budget. This is why, Browning Electrical Services recommends to all our customers, homeowners, and tenants in Lawrenceville, GA to book professional annual electrical system inspections with an expert. Although you will have to pay for such an inspection, it may save you a lot more in the long run!

Today, we will talk about some of the electrical challenges that you may face:
When it comes to home renovations, by far, one of the most popular areas to renovate is the kitchen. Don’t forget that before you start, you need to get an electrical inspection permit in order to ensure your safety. The receptacles are probably the biggest challenge that you may have to deal with during your kitchen renovation. You can have up to 5 different voltage and amperage combinations within the same space. Anything from a T-slot 20 amp receptacle, to a GFCI receptacle to a split receptacle having 220 volts between the top half and the bottom half. If you install the wrong one, they will blow up when you turn on the breaker. This is why, it is important to hire a licensed electrician to help you.
The focal point of any family’s home has to be the media center. Extension cords are meant for temporary installations only, so when you think of the place to put your media center, you need to make sure that there is an outlet close enough. You can plug in the low-power consuming devices in extension cords, but the main screen and audio system should not be plugged in there as well.

Of course, these are only a few of the problems that you may encounter. In order to learn more, you can always refer to the electrical service specialists of Browning Electrical Services.
