Don't Get Zapped!!!

  • Look for the License: It might be tempting to let the tile guy relocate your bathroom outlet since is already torn up -- but it is not recommended. The slightest mistake can leave you with a big fire hazzard!
  • Flip the Switch: A homeowner should never work on live circuits, turn off the main breaker. Small mistakes can equal big fire hazzards -- it is always best to hire a licensed electrician.
  • Set the Time: Install digital timers to your outdoor fixtures -- save money on your electric bill.
  • Meltdown: If a wire looks tarnished or melted in your electrical panel, it could be due to a loose connection. Call a licensed electrician!
  • Livesaving Interruption: Have a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) installed if you have an outlet near a potential moisture source.
