Hot plugs/Electrical Fire Awareness

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 11.46.59 PMMy wife brought me her phone charger the other day and asked “Is this suppose to be this hot?”  No, it is not.  If you have plugs or cords that get hot you need to call a licensed and insured Electrician right away to check out your wiring.  If you have a hot electronic device, replace it immediately.

This photo (below) is from overloaded Christmas Lighting incorrectly installed.

 This photo (above) shows what happens when a light fixture is incorrectly wired and wires are tapped incorrectly.  We had to replace over 4 feet of wiring to fix this problem.

 I have gotten lots of Emergency phone calls where people have hot breakers or outlets and are worried about their house burning down and that is a real worry.

Your local Electricians

Do you know what these mean and what they do in your home protecting you and your family? Do you know if you have these in your home?

Yes we can install them, If you don’t have them!

GFCI — Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters

GFCI helps prevent burns, electric shocks and electrocution, it measures the current going out and coming in.Unknown

Okay so the simple explanation is you need these anywhere there is water, such as counter tops bathrooms, laundry, garage and anything outside, there are other rules this is just the basic info.

AFCI — Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters

AFCI helps prevent electric fires, by sensing leaks and shutting down  electricity before it overheats.  Electricity can leak out of bad wiring and start a fire in your walls.  

Unknown-1

Okay so for Arch fault breakers these protect your home from tiny little shorts inside the walls of you home they will shut down the circuit if any shorts are detected they are not a normal breaker the most common use is for bedroom circuits (they are prone to trip if you use a older or even a dirty vacuum this is normal.   Please service your vacuum then if you need plug it into a different circuit.

SAFETY TIP: Multiple Plug Strip Safety

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 11.45.08 PM

Here’s an electrical tip for all of you!  It’s okay to install and use one plug strip, but it is never okay to use them in multiples.  Never plug one into another to get more outlets.  This is a big fire hazard!  Always follow the manufactures instructions.  If you need more outlets call a Licensed Electrician like Sabin Electric!

The next time you need a job done right, and want to be able to sleep at night,  call Sabin Electric at (801) 358-5170.
