Today there are a number of electrical safety systems that are installed to ensure the security of your property. However, we too need to take certain precautions to prevent the outbreak of an electrical fire on our properties. The one way to do this is to opt for regular preventive electrical maintenance services from your local, reliable Residential Electrician in Sydney.
We at Quick Connect Electrical are one of the leading operators in this space and over the years have built a very strong reputation in the region by providing excellent, customized services to residential and commercial customers. Here are some tips from our experts that will help make your home much safer:
Start at the source
From the standpoint of safety, the electrical outlets are one of the most vital components. Since these are used with regularity, they can come loose, become damaged or get worn over a period of time. Since that is also the point of contact for the electrical appliances you use, there could be chances of sparking as well; faulty outlets are a very common cause of residential electrical fires. If you notice sparking in these outlets or find them to be loose, contact us without delay.
Aside from this, if you have too many appliances such as microwaves, dishwashers, stoves, or a coffee maker on a single circuit, that can result in an overload on the system and its important that you call us to see how this problem can be resolved. We will check whether these appliances can be spread across different circuits as that can help reduce the load on the system.
Safety with heat-producing electrical appliances
It’s also very important that you maintain safety while using any heat-producing appliances, as these are another common cause of fires. The heat they produce has the potential to ignite any combustible material in its vicinity. For instance, if you use any space heaters in your home, ensure you follow all the safety recommendations provided by the manufacturer.
It’s also important to get the electrical appliances serviced on an annual basis. Aside from this, we can also inspect and maintain all the other electrical installations in your home. Our recommendation is that you shouldn’t use extension cords for heavy appliances and never use a single outlet for multiple appliances- this leads to excessive loads on the system. It also heats up the wiring and melts the insulation around it, which can potentially lead to sparking and a fire.
The best way to prevent all these things from happening is to hire us to conduct regular checks on all the electrical installations in your home.
