As the seasons change and we turn back the clocks, it reminds us that winter is right around the corner. At Electrical Connections we encourage home owners to complete an inspection of their electrical system and essential devices to get their home ready for winter.
Smoke detectors can only keep you safe if you maintain them properly. Make sure to check the health of your batteries at least twice a year. Also cleaning the area around a smoke detector with a vacuum cleaner can be beneficial as well. To achieve the best performance, you should have your smoke detectors changed every 8-10 years.
Electrical Panel Checkup
The electrical panel is the heart of your electrical system. Scheduling a checkup of your electrical panel will ensure that it will operate at an optimal level and provide longevity to your system. Our electrical safety advisors can inspect all breakers and check for overheating connections. We make sure all connections are tight, properly grounded and will replace all wires that pose a safety risk.
Electrical Panel Upgrade
If your electrical panel is over 20-years old then it may be time to upgrade to a high-efficiency system. Newer technology today uses far more electricity than the electronics of yesteryear. If there demand for electricity is too much for a circuit, then it will trip a breaker in your electrical panel. Overloading the wires in your home can cause a fire, so it is important that your electrical panel can handle your modern electronics and will protect your electrical system.
At Electrical Connections we have state of the art panel options for your home. From installing new industry standard electrical panels to smart home electrical systems, our expert team of safety advisors can guide you through making the best purchase for your home.
