Electrical Safety Tips
Whether you live or work in Collin County, Texas, it's extremely important to be cautious about electricity in order to preserve the safety and value of property and, most importantly, prevent injury and possible death.
The most important electrical safety tip is to treat electricity with caution and respect! Even low-voltage electricity can be hazardous if improperly handled. Faulty electrical work and improper electrical contact can result in property loss, injury, serious burns or even death.
Be alert for the following coming from electronic devices as these are signs of trouble: smell of burning rubber or plastic, humming or sizzling sounds. Unplug device immediately.
If used incorrectly, generators pose a significant hazard to both the user as well as utility crews attempting to restore power. Never plug a generator into your home circuitry. Instead, plug electronic devices directly into the outlets of the generator. Be sure to use the generator in a well-ventilated area.
In the event of a power outage, when power is restored turn electronic devices back on gradually; sudden heavy electricity demand can damage your home's electrical system and extend the outage.
Use only the fuses or circuit breakers with the recommended amperage.
If you experience problems such as fuses or circuit breakers that keep tripping, lights dimming or flickering, electrical outlets that don't work and GFCI outlets that won't reset, contact a licensed electrician in Collin County, Texas immediately! These could be signs of serious defects with your electrical service panel.
Avoid using extension cords. If you must use one, make sure it is the right capacity for the devices plugged into it.
Overloading an outlet can cause fire. If more than one electronic device is connected to an extension cord, add the individual amp ratings of the devices together; the sum should not exceed the amp rating of the extension cord.
When outdoors, only use extension cords that are moisture-resistant and grounded (three-pronged).
When unplugging an electrical cord pull on the plug, not the cord; pulling on the cord directly can damage the cord and create risk of shock or fire.
Do not place cords where people will be walking, drape cords over metal objects or coil cords while they are in use.
Never cut off or pull out the third prong on an electrical plug! The third prong ensures proper grounding of the electrical current.
