Safety Tips for the Prevention of Electrical Fires
♦Work on Home electrical distribution or lighting equipment should only be conducted by a qualified electrician. When you are buying, selling or remodeling a home, have it inspected by a professional electrician.
Call a qualified electrician or your landlord if you have:
♦recurring problems with blowing fuses or tripping circuit breakers,
♦a tingling feeling when you touch an electrical appliance,
♦discolored or warm outlets,
♦a burning smell or rubbery odor coming from an appliance,
♦sparks from an outlet.
♦Arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) are a type of circuit breaker that shuts off electricity when a dangerous condition occurs. Consider having them installed in your home.
