Electrical Safety Tips Summer

Summer is here, and while you may be enjoying the warm weather, it’s important not to neglect your electrical safety. At Precision Tech, we want you to enjoy your summer without any electrical issues or accidents. Here are some essential electrical safety tips to keep in mind this summer:

Protect outdoor outlets:

Summer is the perfect time for outdoor activities, which often require the use of electrical appliances like grills, outdoor speakers, and power tools. It’s essential to make sure your outdoor outlets are protected from moisture by covering them with weather-resistant covers.

Check your electrical cords:

During the summer, electrical cords are often used more frequently for things like lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, and other power tools. It’s important to check your electrical cords for any signs of damage, including fraying or cracking, before use.

Use GFCI outlets:

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets are essential safety features that protect you from electrical shocks. GFCI outlets can be identified by their reset button, which pops out when it detects a ground fault. These outlets are especially important in areas where water and electricity are near each other, such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Don’t overload your outlets:

It’s tempting to plug in multiple devices and appliances to a single outlet, but it’s important not to overload them. Overloading outlets can cause overheating and pose a fire hazard. If you need to use multiple devices, use a power strip with surge protection to ensure electrical safety.

Schedule an electrical inspection:

One of the best ways to ensure your electrical safety is to schedule an electrical inspection with a licensed electrician. At Precision Tech, we offer comprehensive electrical inspections to identify any potential hazards and provide solutions to keep you safe.
