Electrical Advice & Tips

Below are our Top 10 Electrical Tips to ensure you have a safer Christmas this year:

  1. Don't forget to test &/or replace your batteries in your Smoke Detectors
  2. Use LED Christmas lights, instead of traditional incandescent bulbs, as they're safer and cheaper to run
  3. Don't forget to turn off your Christmas lights when you leave the house
  4. Do NOT use triple adapters
  5. Always use a surge protector on your electronic goods e.g. LCD TV, computer
  6. Never ever overload your sockets as this may result in fire
  7. Always fully unwind an extension cord. And remember, extension cords are not a permanent solution - consider installing additional sockets if they are constantly in use
  8. If an additional portable heater is needed, choose an oil-filled radiator over any other variety. It's the safest and most effiecient to use. Of course never ever use an electric heater to dry clothing.
  9. Consider installing a carbon monoxide detector. Carbon monoxide is a colourless odourless gas produced by any fossil-buring appliance (gas, coal, etc.) and levels must be monitored.
  10. Remember that your electrical panel should be examined by a qualified electrician at least once a year. Contact us today to make an appointment.

Remember stay safe this Christmas. Wishing you and yours a very happy, safe Christmas from all at Blanchardstown Electrical Services.
