Have you been considering purchasing a generator for your home? When the power goes out, having a generator can allow you to have the comforts you want, but most importantly offer you the protection you need for the people and resources in your home. Extended power outages don’t happen often, but when they do can be quite costly and uncomfortable.
Whether you own a commercial building or have emergency lighting installed in a residential area, it is important to ensure that the lighting is functioning properly. Testing your emergency lighting regularly ensures that it works as intended when you need it most. In many cases, emergency lighting is not something that is always on and instead only comes on when the power is off. For this reason, testing your emergency lighting is something that you can easily forget to do.
A GFCI or ground fault circuit interrupter is a type of outlet that serves an important safety purpose. These outlets work by monitoring the amount of electricity that is flowing to a circuit and tripping or shutting off the power to that circuit if something isn’t quite right. This in turn helps to prevent overheating of wires, electrical fires and reduces the risk of electrical shocks and burns.
Your home and the people in it are some of, if not the most, important parts of your life.
