19 Mar Is Your Home Safe? Ask a JLM Electricals Expert
If you’ve recently been handed the keys to a brand new house, you’ll know there’s a lot more to be aware of than the decorative work that needs doing. Of course, there could be structural repairs to take care of, and have you thought of the electrics? What state are they in? And does anything need doing in order to ensure they’re safe and in working order? Be aware that a home you’ve lived in for years may still require some occasional work.
We’re sure that anyone reading this blog knows that electricity has the ability to kill, but time and time again we read news stories about people taking on their own home improvements – with disastrous consequences. Sure, you may well be saving a few bob in the process, but doesn’t it pay to have the peace of mind you need when it comes to safety in the home? If so, it’s time you phoned one of our experts here at JLM Electricals.
So, is your house safe? If your lights trip off, or a fuse blows in an appliance you’re using, there’s probably a problem with your electrical installation. If this is the case, don’t ignore it – seek the help of a professional right away. It isn’t worth taking the risk and leaving something like this to chance.
Bear in mind that electrical work doesn’t always have to equate to a huge bill. Protecting the safety of yourself and your family is the main priority here. Call a JLM Electrical electrician and you may find you’ll be saving yourself lots of money in the long run.
If you’re concerned about the safety of your home, there are a few things you might want to look out for. For example, do your lights keep tripping or the power constantly cutting out? Maybe your lights are flickering or waning? Don’t let the prospect of possibly saving some money lure you into doing the job yourself.
While there’s a lot you can do as a householder to prevent, for example, an electrical fire, you shouldn’t try to rectify any huge problems. For day-to-day maintenance, always check cables and appliances for signs of general wear and tear.
Even if you’re renting your home, it’s worth keeping an eye on things so you can notify your landlord if you’re concerned about anything. If you have absolutely any cause for concern, pick up the phone and call your landlord right away – he or she will most likely get an electrician onto it as soon as possible.
