Unfortunately, home electrical fires claim hundreds of lives each year and injure thousands more, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Incorrectly installed or faulty wiring causes most of these fires. Your home’s electrical system is complicated and easily made do-it-yourself mistakes could be deadly.
Most electrical repair jobs are best left to professional electrical contractors since licensed electricians are knowledgeable about both building codes and national safety standards and they provide peace of mind by guaranteeing their work in your home.
As the summer or winter months roll around in the KC metro, you probably start to experience more power outages than usual. In fact, these are the times of the year when the experts at MVP receive the most calls from the community. Your first option is to check your home’s circuit breaker box. The rows and rows of switches make it almost impossible to guess which one is linked to which appliance, so naturally, most people just flip the switches that are out of alignment to get everything working again. However, we should warn you this doesn’t always solve your problem, and it can be helpful to call a local electrician.
By changing your day-to-day habits, you can easily downsize your monthly electric bill. Here are a few small steps that will make a big impact on your pocketbook over time:
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, proper use of ground fault circuit interrupters, or GFCIs, prevents thousands of accidental shock injuries and electrocutions each year. A GFCI looks like a normal outlet, except it includes a “Reset” and “Test” button. GFCI’s are designed to prevent electrical fires by cutting off the flow of electricity from the current that has strayed from a circuit. The National Electrical Code requires that GFCI’s be installed where electricity and water come into contact with one another (kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor receptacles, and garage wall outlets).
There could be several reasons, but you may need more branch circuits throughout the house, or you may have loose connections in the breaker box, meter box, or throughout your house. This could cause a potential fire, and we recommend having a local electrician come out to take a look and offer their expertise.
Damaged or loose electrical outlets are not only a nuisance; they are a fire hazard in your home. Electrical outlets definitely need to be repaired or replaced if:
Energy-efficient light bulbs not only save you money over time, but they also help reduce your carbon footprint. The most common type on the market today is the compact fluorescent light (CFL). CFLs last up to 13 times longer and emit less heat than incandescent bulbs. In addition, these energy-saving light bulbs can cut 25 percent off of your electric bill every year, and they come in shapes and sizes to fit a variety of home and business fixtures.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that approximately 2,400 children a year receive emergency room treatment for injury from electrical shock. The natural curiosity of children and pets presents a major safety concern for parents, but following the tips below can keep your family and pets safe from injury.
If you don’t have power after correctly resetting a circuit breaker, it may be a sign that the breaker is overloaded or that there is a short circuit or faulty wiring to blame. MVP’s certified and licensed electricians in KC both inspect and test circuits to diagnose the problem. Breakers do wear out over time. If a replacement breaker box is needed, we are happy to install a robust system with a new breaker panel and overload correction.
Electrical-related injuries claim the lives of hundreds of people each year. Many of these cases could have been prevented, so it’s important to educate yourself about electrical safety precautions.
