Spring is often a season of “good weather.” It is also a season dedicated to cleanups and home maintenance.
Talking about home maintenance, do you know the state of your electrical system?
The home’s electrical system is a vital component that needs constant checkups to avoid any electrical hazards.
If you haven’t had an electrical system inspection for a while, this spring season is perfect for ensuring your electrical system is in excellent health.
We’ve created this electrical checklist to help ensure your electrical system is in good shape and make necessary electrical repairs.
- Start by testing the smoke detectors
Smoke detectors can be the line between life and death; that is why it’s recommended to check on them and change their batteries if need be in springtime and every month. You can have a calendar reminder if you might forget to do so.
- Check electrical outlets
You want to make sure all outlets are working. So don’t leave any power outlet unchecked. And in case you come across any frayed, damaged, or old wiring, it may be time to call in the experts for a fix or replacement.
- Check your pole light
If you have a pole light in your yard, it’s easy to ignore it when you’re doing your electrical checkups. However, they always give a nice glow, especially now that you’ll spend more time outdoors at night.
So, for this spring, don’t forget to check out the pole light or any other landscape lights for that matter. They may have been buried in snow and ice, and if not addressed, they’ll fail to work when you need them. Make repairs if needs be.
- Don’t forget about trees almost overhanging your power lines
Unless you’re ready for a tragedy or complete power loss, you should remove dangerously overhanging trees. You can call tree removal to take care of your tree problem. Or better still, be ready for summer blackouts by installing a backup generator as soon as now.
These are but the few things you can do this spring for the sake of the health and safety of your electrical system. If you’re unsure what to do, it would be wise to call residential electrical services to your rescue.
