When the holidays arrive, so does everyone’s favorite part of the season: Christmas lights. While everyone loves to see those colorful, twinkling lights full of Christmas Spirit, what many people fail to realize about Christmas lights, Christmas trees, and other decorative elements is that there are certain electrical risks that can arise. The addition of these lights and decorations means putting more stress on your electrical system, which can be dangerous if your home isn’t properly equipped. Luckily, Superior Services is here to ensure that your home has what it needs to endure the Christmas season without incident while still looking merry and bright! Keep reading this blog from our electrical pros to learn more about electrical safety during the Christmas season and how you can be proactive.
Preventing Christmas Tree Fires: Surge Protection, Light Installation, & Electrical Service
There’s so much to love about having a real Christmas tree in your home but, there are also a few risks to consider. Real Christmas trees need to be watered regularly, so they don’t dry out and potentially catch fire from warming lights. You should also consider LED Christmas lights that don’t heat up like incandescent lights do, lowering the overall risk of Christmas tree fires in your home.
If you’ve got pets in your home this Christmas, it’s important to ensure they’re supervised around the Christmas tree. One chewed-off bulb can expose sensitive fibers that could become the impetus of a Christmas tree fire. Add a surprise electrical surge into the equation, and your beautiful pine tree could be a risk to the well-being of your home and family. Ensure you’ve got the right surge protection in place while planning your Christmas tree display to keep your home and your family safe.
Common Electrical Repairs: Blown Outlets, Flickering Lights, Switch Malfunctions
While your home’s electrical system supports a myriad of fun and fancy Christmas decorations, there’s always a chance that a malfunction could occur. Whether it’s a blown outlet, uneven lighting, or issues with switches, it’s crucial you have any problems addressed and repaired by a professional electrician to ensure your home is safe for the holidays and can continue to bring a joyful atmosphere. Superior Services is glad to be the local expert you can trust. We have the expertise and skill to perform any kind of electrical repairs when you need them most.
Panel Replacement & Whole Home Surge Protection
When your home is covered in string lights and other electrical Christmas decorations, it’s important to ensure that you’ve got the most updated panel for your home as well as whole home surge protection. If your current panel doesn’t have the capacity to support all of your Christmas lights and more, it could become overpowered and potentially blow out! The same applies if your home were to experience an electrical surge. A home experiencing a surge without the right protection could result in damaged appliances and other electrical installations… like your Christmas lights!
