If Santa came down your chimney wearing an electrician’s tool pouch what would he make sure your home had for the Holidays? Here are 5 things he would make sure you have to keep your home and family safe for the Holidays.
1 He would make sure your smoke detectors were in working order. Smoke detectors should be hard wired, interconnected, and placed in all bedrooms and at each level of your home. A combination smoke/ carbon monoxide detector should be installed within 10 feet of all bedrooms.
2 He would install tamper resistant receptacles to protect children from inserting objects and coming in contact with energized parts.
3 He would make sure that you would have GFCI protection to all bathroom, kitchen counter, outdoor, and unfinished basement receptacles to protect you and your family from potential ground faults.
4 He would install a switch for your receptacles where you plug in your Christmas lights to keep you from bending over and possibly pulling a back muscle.
