Plano & Allen Electrical Safety

Posted on August 8, 2011

There are many things our Master Electrician can do to keep your Plano or Allen home as safe as possible. Home safety could be divided into two categories; the safety of your family, and the safety of your residential electrical system. To keep your family safe, consider using outdoor lighting as part of your home security strategy. Our team can install motion lighting, which will come on whenever an object moves in its path. Landscape lighting can also help deter criminals from choosing your home as a target. Because thieves and vandals love the cover of dark, a well-lit home will make an unappealing target.

In regards to the safety of your electrical system, it’s important to make sure your wiring and circuitry is up to date. All larger appliances should be put on their own dedicated circuits with dedicated plugs for each item. This will reduce the likelihood of an electrical overload on the rest of the system. In the kitchen and bathrooms, GFCI plugs are a must, as these will cut the current in the event that they come into contact with water. Installing GFCI outlets in your home could potentially save the lives of your loved ones. Smoke detector battery replacement should also be performed once a year. Whether your job is big or small, Light It Up Electric can service all your safety needs. Contact us for a free estimate today!
