For over twenty years the Electrical Safety Foundation has dedicated the month of May to Electrical Safety awareness. It is imperative to keep safe while using electricity and understand the importance of doing so. Given that air conditioners use a great deal of electricity, All Year Cooling, a local air conditioner repair and maintenance company, is dedicating the entire month of May to bringing awareness to electrical safety. All Year Cooling aims to explain the potential danger that can come along with the misuse of electricity. Below are tips and explanations as to why the proper use of electricity is vital to South Florida families.
Taking necessary steps to eliminate the electrical safety threats around homes and workplaces can easily prevent thousands of injuries and deaths that occur each year. Simply installing a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) can be a life saving decision. GFCIs are electrical safety devices that trip electrical circuits when they detect leakage currents or ground faults. GFCIs come in the form of electrical receptacles, circuit breakers, or portable devices. According to an Electrical Safety International Survey, over one-half of American families have never tested the GFCIs in their homes, and over 25% do not know that GFCIs can prevent electrocution.
With summertime rapidly approaching, we’ll all be spending more time outdoors. It is important to keep in mind electrical safety when it comes to working outside to prevent injuries. Here are some things to keep in mind when working outdoors this summertime: ladders and power lines do not mix, contact with a power line and ladder can be fatal; always unplug outdoor tools and appliances when not in use; understand that water and electricity can never mix.
