Safety Tips

  • Don't overload circuits, this is a major cause of home fires. Do not operate several high powered appliances at once on the same circuit.
  • Inspect wires and plugs regularly and replace any that are worn or frayed. Don't run cords under carpets or across doorways.
  • Keep appliances clean and in good condition. Have them repaired and serviced when necessary.
  • Provide adequate air circulation around all appliances to prevent dangerous overheating.
  • Take care when changing fuses. To avoid shocks, keep area near circuit box dry. Turn off main switch before changing a fuse.
