Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
Just this past week, top Philadelphia electrician, Thomas Edison Electric, released guidelines to help aid homeowners when it comes to preventing power outages during the summer months. If a person lives and works in the Northeast, or better yet, in or around the Philadelphia, PA area where Mother Nature is very temperamental, chances are that the person may have experienced a heat have or two this summer.
He or she may have even had the luxury of experiencing a power outage during one of this summer’s various heat waves. While there is no guaranteed remedy to prevent a power outage, what follows are two tips that this PA electrical contractor have provided in order to help anyone prevent one from occurring in his or her home and office building:
1. Power outages typically occur when a power grid is using more power than it should. To help prevent a power outage from occurring, a person should always turn off any lights that are not needed—especially if there are windows in the building, and it is sunny outside.
2. If using a central air conditioner, close all vents in rooms and doors that do not need to be kept cool. Closing off the air flow to all of the rooms that have no activity will allow the air conditioner to use less energy than it should, thus in turn permitting the power grid to use less electricity.
The most common external sources causing surges are weather related, and internal sources include the running of equipment that turns on and off, requiring large amounts of energy to function. To keep home electronic equipment and networked devices safe, as well as a business running efficiently even during the worst storms and power outages, anyone can call this Philadelphia electrician at 215-226-3300, or visit http://www.philadelphiaelectrician.com for more information in regards to their services.
