Vancouver Island Area homeowners may not realize just how many electrical safety hazards can be present in a home. Some of the most common hazards are as follows:

  • Faulty wiring: Quality electrical wiring that conforms to local safety standards is crucial to ensuring a safe home. If you begin to notice the telltale signs of faulty wiring, such as dimming or flickering lights, scorch marks on outlets, a warm or hot electrical panel, or a frequently tripped breaker, contact a reputable electrician as soon as possible. In addition, if you notice a damaged, corroded, or worn electrical wire, this could also be a hazard and should be looked at by a professional.
  • Light bulbs: Believe it or not, light bulbs are a common electrical safety hazard for two reasons. First, installing a light bulb with the wrong wattage can be dangerous. So before you install a fresh bulb, make sure the wattage is equal to or lesser than the maximum wattage of the lamp. Second, even if you install a light bulb with the correct wattage, it could still be a hazard if located near flammable materials, such as drapes, curtains, bed linens, or upholstery.
  • Outlets located near water: Since water conducts electricity, power outlets should always be placed as far away from water sources as possible. Keep an eye on the location of the outlets in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room.
  • Extension cords and power bars: Extension cords and power bars are potential hazards for two reasons. First, they can cause someone to trip if they are not tucked away neatly, and second, they can lead to an overloaded electrical panel, especially if your house’s electrical system is old.
  • Wet hands: Handling electrical appliances with wet hands dramatically increases the odds of electric shock. So do yourself a favour and dry your hands before touching the hairdryer, coffee maker, air fryer, etc…
  • Covered cords and wires: Covering cords and wires may cause them to overheat, which can lead to electrical fires.

Some steps that the Vancouver Island Area homeowners can take to avoid electrical safety hazards include drying your hands before handling appliances, leaving cords and wires uncovered, limiting your use of extension cords and power bars, ensuring light bulbs are the correct wattage and are not placed near flammable objects, and ensuring appliances are a safe distance from water sources. Last but not least, one of the top ways to ensure your home’s electrical safety is to schedule a regular home inspection with an electrician.

Electrical safety is vital to ensuring the overall safety of your Vancouver Island Area home. Why? Because an unsafe electrical system poses serious risks. For example, faulty writing can lead to power surges, overheated cords or wires can lead to electrical fires, and touching an appliance with wet hands can lead to electric shock or even electrocution. To keep yourself and your family members safe, take preventative measures like hiring an electrician to conduct an electrical safety inspection of your home.

Eric Schmidt - Google Review

"This company installed a heat pump and modified my oil furnace as secondary heat after I had been told by another well known company that the furnace could not be modified as it was too old, at ten years! I was impressed with the tidy and speedy installation .We have been delighted with the Heat-pump and especially the running costs. Over the last two years of operation we have averaged $2.51 a day for heating/cooling our 2000 sq.ft. home 24/7."
