Electrical Safety for DIY Elves

December 20, 2023For those trimming the tree and decorating your home this week, remember to keep electrical safety in mind.

  • Lights – Toss any frayed wires, broken bulbs and burnt lights.
  • Outlets – Plugging in excessive cords into an electric source can pose a fire risk. Abide by safety instructions.
  • Power down – Always power off electrical decorations before you head to bed or leave your home. Better yet, invest in decorations with timers to save you time and electricity while keeping you and your loved ones safe.
  • LEDs Incandescent bulbs are nostalgic but generate a lot of heat and waste electricity. Invest in LEDs for a brighter, long-lasting, energy-efficient alternative to other bulbs.
  • GFCIs – Outside electrical décor should be plugged into ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs). If you do not have GFCIs, portable versions can be purchased from electrical supply stores.

From the LCEC family to yours, happy holidays!!
