Electrical service to prepare your home for winter- Contact an electrician
Electrical service in your home is important. One way to get your home ready for winter, which is important even in Fort Mill, SC, is to have some electrical service done. Get an electrician to inspect your wiring, if you have not done so this year.To save energy and reduce the risk of fires, get into the habit of turning off all appliances before going to bed, if you have not already done so.
Install an extra electrical socket in every room you use often. You never know when you might want to put a space heater in, and then there are all those Christmas lights. Having an extra socket means not having to use multi-adaptor plugs to put a potentially dangerous burden on any one socket.
Electricians offer a safety checklist for your electrical system
This is also a good time of year to go over your electrical system and make sure it is ready for winter.Storms can cause fluctuations in power that trip the circuit breakers, so check the main electrical panel. If you do not know where it is, the first job is finding it. You should be able to get to it quickly and easily during a blackout. Make sure all the switches in it work and are clearly labeled.Keep a flashlight nearby where you can reach it without having to look. This would also be a good place to install a certified hardwired surge suppressor.
Make sure all your electrical outlets and switches are in good condition, that the outlets have surge protection and that none of them are overloaded. An electrician can tell you how much load any one outlet can bear. Make sure that there is no danger of water leaking anywhere near your outlets, switches, wiring or any other part of your electrical system, whether from your plumbing system or from rain or melting snow.
