5 Electrical Tips if You Work from Home

Around the holidays, a lot of us choose to work from our own homes. In fact, since the Pandemic, many people never returned to the office, opting instead for the flexibility and ease of a home office. As licensed electricians, we want to warn everyone about using too many power cords and overloading outlets.

You can have a residential electrician from Houston come by and do an electrical home inspection if you have experienced surges or any browning with your lights. To avoid harm, follow correct working-from-home safety recommendations and know when to call in a professional. Here are a few electrical precautions from your trusted electricians in Houston.

#1 Don't Overload Outlets

It’s usual in today’s technology-driven society to have many electrical devices and appliances connected to your outlets. Overloading outlets is dangerous, especially if you’re utilizing a multi-plug adaptor to power a big number of gadgets. Be cautious. If something starts to spark, remove the multi-plug and, stop using the outlet, call Unity Services right away.

#2 Use Appropriate Wattage Light Bulbs

Replacing a burned-out lightbulb is one of the most typical household electrical jobs. While this is a very easy operation, it is important to pay attention to wattage needs. Your fixture could possibly overheat if you insert a bulb with the wrong wattage.

#3 Cords Should Not Run Under Doors or Floorings

Ugly electrical wires can ruin an otherwise visually pleasing environment. However, hiding the cords beneath rugs or running them under a door to make them less noticeable is not recommended - a cord under a rug or carpet is a severe fire hazard.

#4 Replace Broken Extension Cords

Extension cables that are frayed or broken can be hazardous to both you and the environment. Instead of attempting to repair broken wires, replace them.
