Save Energy and Be Safe this Summer

As the summer months roll in, many of us become more mindful of our energy consumption. While common tips like using fans and setting your thermostat higher are well-known, here are some lesser-known electrical tips to help you stay safe and efficient this summer:

Unplug Chargers When Not in Use

Did you know that chargers for devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops draw power even when they’re not connected to the device? Unplugging these chargers when not in use can help reduce “phantom” energy consumption and lower your electricity bill.

Use Timer for Outdoor Lighting

If you enjoy spending evenings in your backyard, consider using timers for your outdoor lighting. This ensures your lights turn off automatically, saving energy and giving you one less thing to remember.

Inspect and Clean Your AC Unity
Your air conditioner works hard during the summer months. Make sure it’s running efficiently by cleaning the filters and checking for any blockages or leaks. An efficient AC unit uses less power and cools your home more effectively.

Invest in Surge Protectors
Summer storms can lead to power surges that might damage your electrical devices. Protect your valuable electronics by investing in high-quality surge protectors. This small investment can save you from costly repairs or replacements.

Utilize Solar-Powered Devices
Summer is the perfect time to harness the power of the sun. Consider using solar-powered chargers for your devices or installing solar garden lights. These eco-friendly options can reduce your reliance on the grid and save you money in the long run.

Schedule and Electrical Safety Inspection
With increased electricity usage during the summer, it’s a good idea to schedule an electrical safety inspection. An electrician can identify any potential issues, ensuring your home’s electrical system is safe and up to code.

Check up on your Pool Equipment
If you have a pool, make sure all electrical components, like pumps and lights, are in good working order and safely installed. Faulty pool equipment can be hazardous, especially when mixed with water.

Enjoy a safe and more efficient summer while keeping your energy bills in check. If you have any questions or need assistance with your home’s electrical system, contact us. Stay cool and stay safe
