How to Protect Your Home
There are many ways a electrician can protect your home and keep you and your family safe. Old wiring can cause issues with costly electric bills or even fires if poorly done. If you have an older home built before 1950 and have not checked the wiring, it may be time for an electrician to visit. Older wiring may not meet today’s safety code and could potentially pose hazards to you and your family. Our electricians will make sure your home is wired properly and efficiently to prevent accidents and to help lower your bill. Another way our expert electricians protect your home is to make sure you're safe from surges. When power resumes after an outage or anytime the power from the electrical utility company fluctuates, a surge can flow through your wiring. Surges also can occur when appliances in your home turn on and off. It’s routine to supply computers with surge protectors. Do these work? It depends. If your electrical system is grounded, if both the surge suppressor and computer are plugged in with three-pronged plugs, and if the surge suppressor is top quality , it offers protection.
However, power strip surge protectors vary dramatically in quality. Some are effective while others offer little or no protection. Surge protectors work as long as your electrical system is grounded, so it’s also important to posses an electrician check your electrical system for grounding. As a note, a home can have three-pronged electrical outlets, making it appear grounded, without actually being grounded. An electrician carries an electronic tester which may tell you with certainty if you are indeed grounded.

Aluminum wiring poses a serious fire hazard wherever it's spliced or makes a reference to an outlet, switch, breaker, or other component of the electrical system. At connection points, aluminum wires shrink and expand with temperature changes. Over time, this movement can cause breaks within the circuit, also as overheating, sparks, or fire.
