BAY AREA ELECTRIC CAUTIONS HOMEOWNERS TO PREPARE FOR WINTER

Medium media4

Bay Area Electric suggests that home and business owners have an inspection to determine if their building's electrical system is ready for winter. Cooler temperatures promote the use of space heaters to help warm rooms.

"You would be surprised how many home and business owners just plug a space heater in without knowing if the fuse box (or breaker box) can handle the load - or if the plug is even grounded," a representative of Bay Area Electric said. "You can be shocked by a space heater or if the circuit is over-fused it can result in an electrical fire."

 A few signs of overloaded circuits to keep an eye out for are: flickering or dimming lights, frequently blown fuses or tripping breakers, dielectric breakdown on fuse cartridges (melted pull outs), and a strong burning odor near the defective wiring device.

 Bay Area Electric wants you to ask, "Do you need a space heater circuit? Do you realize that a space heater usually requires its own circuit? Can your existing fuse box (breaker box) handle that circuit?"  Stay warm and safe through the cold winter with the help of Bay Area Electric.
