C & T technicians are specifically trained and highly skilled in dealing with potentially dangerous electrical situations.  We take our employees’ safety and the safety of our customers very seriously.

Remember, electrical wiring is not a hobby!  Many of the serious problems we see are code violations with wiring installed by a “do it yourselfer” or homeowner with some advice from “the guy at the hardware store” or a handyman.  These problems often come to light when a property is being sold and a real estate inspector requires expensive repairs.  They can also be a fire, safety, or electrocution hazard.

You should always hire a licensed electrical contractor for your safety.  Also, keep in mind that price should not always be the determining factor when you choose a contractor. Instead, choose a contractor with worker’s compensation and liability insurance.  The company should have employees who are trained, drug tested and background checked. Also, make sure the contractor will warranty their work and will be there when you need them.  Keep in mind when you shop for price, you may have to pay twice.  You can always count on C & T Electric.

Meanwhile, there are some easy things you can do to prevent electrical fires in the home:

  1. Check for loose-fitting plugs that can overheat.
  2. Put safety covers on all unused outlets accessible to small children.
  3. Walk around the house and touch all outlet plates.  If any of them are hot to the touch or discolored, there may be a dangerous heat buildup at the connections.
  4. Never remove the third prong, the ground pin, to make it fit into a two-conductor outlet.  This could lead to an electrical shock.
  5. Use the proper sized light bulb that is recommended for a fixture or lamp.
  6. Make sure bulbs are screwed in securely because loose bulbs may overheat.
  7. Extension cords should only be used on a temporary basis—improper use is a major reason for home fires.
  8. Replace smoke detector batteries twice a year.

Experts in the industry recommend that homeowners have their homes evaluated by a licensed electrician at least once a year.   Home electrical systems can change dramatically over the course of 12 months, and in doing so, potential safety concerns can develop.  Schedule an appointment with C & T today for a full home inspection for your safety.  Keeping your home up to date and as safe as can be is part of what has helped us become known as the electricians you can trust in Central Alabama.  Just call C & T Electric, and it’s done!
