Home Electrical Safety Tips to Keep Atlanta Safe

Electricity is one of the most powerful elements that can make its way into our homes. That’s why harnessing it properly and using the precisely correct amounts is so important – not only can it cause damage to expensive equipment, but it can result in fire damage, burns, electrocution and power surges. Since 2007 alone, U.S. fire departments responded to over 80,000 fires that were directly linked to electrical failure, malfunction or negligence.

While TE Certified’s professionals are experts in proper electrical installation, repair, and maintenance, there are still methods and proper care techniques to ensure that you do not experience the unfortunate. Here are a few tips to help keep your home safe every day:
