August 13, 2021

Fall is such a great time to enjoy your home and the beautiful outdoor space. You may be thinking about ways to improve your outdoor space with electronics and accessories for music, movies, or lighting. There are many great ways to enhance your space with electrical devices but it’s also important to make sure they are safely and properly installed. At Mr. Electric of Dallas, we’ve gathered a few tips and tricks on how you can enjoy the fall weather and stay safe too. If you would like us to come out and do a safety inspection, we’d be glad to help out. Give us a call or schedule for one of our insured electricians online.

Schedule a Safety Inspection

Scheduling a safety inspection is one of the quicker and easier ways to make sure your electrical wiring and equipment are set up properly. When you schedule a safety inspection with Mr. Electric of Dallas, our electricians will thoroughly inspect your electrical wiring, circuit box, and outlets to ensure that the parts are of high quality and are properly installed. If we find any malfunctioning wires or outlets or any other potential hazard within your electrical wiring, we’ll let you know about the different options and solutions to fix it. Scheduling inspections regularly can save time and potential danger from happening later. If you’d like to schedule an inspection, give us a call or schedule online today.

Install The Right Outlets

While most homes already have GFCI outlets installed, older homes may have outdated electrical wiring. GFCI outlets, short for ‘ground-fault circuit interrupter’ are special types of outlets that detect imbalances within your electrical circuits.  When a GFCI outlet detects an imbalance, it automatically shuts off the power, thus preventing electrical shock or fire hazards. Having these outlets installed can save your home and your loved ones from the dangers of unexpected electrical mishaps. If you’d like to learn more about installing the right outlets for your home and outdoor space, give us a call or schedule online. Mr. Electric of Dallas is happy to help!

Light Up Your Yard

Lighting up your yard can bring out the beauty of your plants and outdoor space and it can help keep you safe too. Landscape lighting can enhance the unique areas of the garden while also lighting up a safe path to walk along. In the fall, days will eventually become shorter as it begins to get dark earlier so outdoor lighting will be essential for your outdoor space. Simple ways to enhance the safety of your yard may be to place lights along the stairway. This will help not only to see the stairs but can also hinder any potential criminals who may have targeted your home. Flood lights are another common lighting option that can detect movement in your yard. Once it detects movement, the flood lights automatically turn on and light up a large area. Dark corners of a home are especially popular spots to place these flood lights. If you’d like to learn more about electrical safety tips for fall, get in touch with our team.
